    If your child will not be in school, please call the office in the morning. You may reach us at 308-635-6259.The building secretary and/or an automated call will contact you by 9:00am if we are not aware of your child’s absence.  If your child is late, please ensure they go directly to the main office so accurate attendance is recorded.

    The majority of our school/district notes, newsletters, forms, important information and finished student work will be sent home every Tuesday in our Roosevelt folders.  However, please check your child’s backpack on a regular basis for additional information. Please review the contents of the folder with your child and return the folder the next day. Keep important papers at home for future reference.

Also, please refrain from parking or driving through the staff parking lot before or after school.

    Message from the Health Office:

    • Be sure your student’s paperwork is up to date before school starts! This includes: immunizations, medication, health plans, physical, vision. Contact the health office if you have questions.
    • A “Health Information” paper will be sent home the first week of school. It is important that the health office is aware of any health needs your student may have. Please have your student return it to the health office as soon as possible. If there is additional important information we need to know, contact the health office.
