August Update

Dear parents,

Important back to school information

Welcome back to a new school year.  Please note that our elementary students in first through fifth grades will start school one week later than those at Roosevelt High School and Stanton Middle School. 

Wednesday, August 15
First day of school for Roosevelt, Stanton

Wednesday, August 22
Elementary schools begin one week later

Roosevelt High School and Stanton Middle School will start classes on Wednesday, August 15.  Elementary students in first through fifth grade will start one week later on Wednesday, August 22.  Kindergarten Readiness Assessment is on August 22 and 23 with Kindergarten Orientation on August 24.

            The reason for the later start is because of hot temperatures in elementary buildings.  Stanton Middle School is air conditioned. and Roosevelt High School has air conditioning in some areas.  By adding 10 minutes to the school day, elementary students will make up for the instructional time.
