Safe, Responsible, and Respectful Conduct
Today, I visited each third through sixth-grade classroom to highlight the importance of safe, responsible, and respectful conduct during our unstructured times such as recess and lunch. I reviewed appropriate behavior, safe and fun activities, and basic school rules. While there are many Roosevelt students who continuously strive to make our learning community a great place to be (both in and out of the classroom), there are some students who need to be reminded of safe, responsible, and respectful conduct. Please review the following school behavior expectations with your student tonight, so that every student can enjoy all that our school community has to offer.

Camps will be held outdoors at La Cumbre JHS. Masks will be required and SBEF will be following COVID safe guidelines.
