Four school days will be made up at the end of the school year in June. The new final day for students is Thursday, June 22.
At middle and high schools, the fifth school day will be restored before spring break in March. The previously scheduled no-school day on March 17 for teacher planning and professional development has been changed to a regular school day. The grading day for the second trimester has been moved from March 16 to April 3 and the third trimester will begin on April 4, after spring break.
Certain other days also have been changed in the revised calendar to balance the school year. High school graduation dates have not changed.
Please see the attached revised red/white calendar or check our school’s calendar on the Roosevelt website for additional no-school days that are not part of the district-wide calendar.

FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE
I would like to commit to you that the Roosevelt Middle School staff stands together against bigotry, harassment, bullying and any form of discrimination. We support a learning community where cooperation, fairness and mutual respect are the rule... not the exception. We know a learning environment free of bigotry, harassment, bullying and discrimination is one where all students can and will learn at the highest level. The RMS staff believes in a world where everyone... our students... our staff... our parents... and our community celebrate the strength and power of diversity. We stand together as a united school committed to supporting the success of all students. Regardless of where a student worships, where a student comes from, what language a student speaks at home, the color of a student's skin, or who a student loves, every individual adds to the mosaic of our school community. Our differences, not our similarities, are what makes us stronger as a whole.
Roosevelt students come from all parts of our United States and from all parts of the world. We have several distinct languages spoken in our school and at home. Our school is a reflection of our larger community. We should challenge divisive rhetoric occurring in our community and across our nation. We should look for good in one another. We challenge each of you to see the good in others... and to be the good others see in you.
- Chris Mitchell, Principal, RMS
