- Red Oak Elementary
First Week of School Information
You will be able to walk your student to their classroom for the first week of school (August 19th-23rd). Students will then go to their assigned area in the morning starting Monday, August 26th. We ask that you allow your child to walk themselves to their morning area to help promote independence.
We ask that you please not visit during lunch until after Labor Day. This will allow your student to have plenty of time to become familiar with lunch time procedures and develop friendships!
Students arriving by car should be dropped off in the back of the building. Staff will be available to assist students as they exit cars and enter the building. Please do not stop in front of the building to drop off students. You must drop off at the back of the building. Students may not walk in the front doors by themselves. Parents wishing to walk students into the building will need to park in the front and will be allowed to walk the students into the foyer, but students will walk to the cafeteria and their classrooms by themselves. If your child needs extra assistance, we will have several staff members available. The tardy bell will ring at 7:45. Students arriving after 7:45 will need to be escorted into the building and signed in as tardy. Parents will need to park in the front of the building.
Dismissal is an extremely important part of our day. We want to ensure the safest and most efficient process to end each day at ROE. Your child's teacher will ask you to share your child's normal dismissal plan during Meet the Teacher. We know that sometimes plans may change. The best way to make transportation changes is to communicate with your child's teacher in writing. However, if an emergency arises the office can make contact with the ROE front office during the day to inform of last minute changes. In case of an emergency contact the ROE Office at 972-617-3523 before 2:00 pm.
Red Oak Elementary staffers will walk these students to one of three designated neighborhood drop-offs. Students who walk will be accompanied to the drop-off spot nearest to their home. This option is only for students living in the surrounding neighborhoods. All other students should be a bus rider, daycare rider or car rider.
Neighborhood A – Valley Ridge and Autumn Trail
Neighborhood B - Valley Ridge and Shadow Bend
Neighborhood C – Red Oak Road and Foxwood Lane
Parent Pick Up
As always, each car will need to a car tag placed on the dashboard. Please be sure to stay in your car while in this line. You may enter the car line from either Red Oak Road or Valley Ridge. Your child's homeroom teacher will distribute car tags during Meet the Teacher Night. If you do not have a car tag, please visit the front office. The parent pick up line will be a slower process during the month of August. We will increase our efficiency as we move into September.
Bus / Daycare / After the Bell
Students who ride a Red Oak ISD bus or daycare transportation will be dismissed at the front of the building. After the Bell will meet in the gym during dismissal time. Students must be enrolled in After the Bell prior to staying.
