Spring Picture Update: Lifetouch made the decision to shutdown production a few weeks ago and have suspended all pictures until at least May 8th. I know this is frustrating for our families as we would like those photos, but the health of all persons at this point is so important and I understand their need to do this. As soon as photos go back into production and they are sent to Roosevelt, we will find a way to get those to you. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Good morning Roadrunner Families: At 10:20 this morning, we practiced a “Hard Lock-Down” drill – otherwise known as “Shelter in Place” or “Intruder”. This type of emergency procedure would only occur in the most extreme of conditions, yet it is very important that we practice it at least once each school year to ensure that everyone knows the procedure in the hopes that we never have to use it. I would encourage you to visit with your Roadrunner about it this evening and, as always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you, Paula Rice, Principal ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Buenos días familias Roadrunner: A las 10:20 de esta mañana, practicamos un simulacro de "bloqueo duro", también conocido como "Refugio en el lugar" o "Intruso". Este tipo de procedimiento de emergencia solo ocurriría en las condiciones más extremas, sin embargo, es muy importante que lo practiquemos al menos una vez cada año escolar para asegurarnos de que todos conozcan el procedimiento con la esperanza de que nunca tengamos que usarlo. Te animo a que visites a tu Roadrunner al respecto esta noche y, como siempre, si tienes alguna pregunta, no dudes en contactarme. Gracias,
