Dress Menu Reminders

Hawk Nation,

Spring has sprung and we have six weeks of school remaining.

However, we need to address a situation that is causing safety concerns and will be effective immediately - Wednesday, April 20 - at all Red Oak ISD schools.

Students MUST remove any hood or head coverings when entering or in the school buildings. Not doing so, makes it hard to identify unauthorized campus visitors versus our students.

We have been too lenient, allowing students to enter and remove them during the day or once in class. However, student and staff safety is the top priority and this has become an issue with identifying non-students which is a major factor in that safety.

Dress Menu Guideline Reminders -

  • Students ARE NOT ALLOWED to wear caps, hats, hoods, or head coverings inside the building at any time, unless for religious reasons.
  • In addition, all sweatshirts and pullover hoodies worn in school MUST be in approved colors - solid white, gray, maroon, black, or navy. Red Oak logos and Red Oak artwork are allowed on zip-up and pullover hoodies; any other logos must be smaller than 1½ inches by 1½ inches.
  • Outer coats/jackets may be any color but MUST be removed when entering the school building.

We also remind parents, students, and staff that all visitors MUST check in at the front office and receive a visitor badge. Former students, non-student siblings, and students from other campuses should not be on ROISD campuses during the school day.

Please have a conversation with your children as we will begin strict enforcement on Wednesday, April 20.

We appreciate your support in this matter of student safety.
