Parents of Royal Oak School,
back to another exciting year of learning! We hope that you had the
chance to get away and recharge over the summer.
I would imagine that many of your kids
are eagerly awaiting the start of another year at our wonderful school.
As a staff, we are very excited to have the opportunity to work with you and
your child(ren) in their learning journey. Teachers have been working
busy in start up meetings, getting their classrooms ready and setting plans in
place for the start of the school year.

Teachers will be sending out a school
messenger later this afternoon to welcome you and your child to their classroom
and to give you further information about the first day of school.
Weather permitting, we will all gather on the back compound prior to the start
of school at 9:10. We look forward to another awesome year of learning at
Royal Oak School!

Yellow School Bus Riders: If your child rides a yellow bus,
please ensure they know which bus to get on at the end of the day on
Tuesday. Please also go over where their stop is to get off when they go
home at the end of the day. At the school, will be having a bus rider
assembly on Tuesday afternoon to give students bracelets that let them know
which bus they ride (A or B) and where their stop is. Kindergarten
parents please note - bussing does not start until Thursday due to
Fees: The CBE has moved to an online payment system for all
fees. This will help to streamline payments for school fees and for field
trips. Please see the previous email from our admin secretary, the
fabulous Judy Jackson, for more details on making sure you have an

with the beginning school year package. If you need help getting an
