Visiting Campus (due to COVID-19, this is currently on hold)

(Board Policy 4311) 

We encourage visitors. All parents and other visitors sign in at the office before visiting our facilities. A visitor pass will be issued to the parent/guardian/visitor to ensure staff that this has been done. Parent/guardian/visitor may be asked to present photo identification upon request.



(Board Policy 3440)

Royal Intermediate needs and encourages parents/guardians to be involved in their child’s education. Parents formed a PTO in Royal City because they wanted to support academic and cultural programs, as well as enhance communication between home and school. There are a variety of opportunities to become involved. Volunteers will be asked to participate in a background check that can be conducted by the school secretary.


Personal Devices and Valuables Policy

Large sums of money and valuables must be left at home. If students bring any valuable item to school they do so AT THEIR OWN RISK. School personnel will not be required to investigate the loss or theft of those items. The school and district assume no responsibility for loss of students’ personal property. If cellphones are brought to school, the expectation is that they are turned off and left in backpacks/lockers during the entire school day. Cellphones may not be taken out of backpacks/lockers at all during the school day. Failure to adhere to this policy will result in disciplinary action.


Student Check Out

(Board Policy 3200)

No student shall be removed from the school grounds or from school buildings during school hours except by a person authorized to do so by a parent or legal guardian who has legal custody of the student. If a parent is picking up a student during school time, he or she must be checked out of the office with a signature and may be asked to present photo identification upon request.


Student’s Responsibility

(Board Policy 3200) 

Students should come to school with the desire to learn. The school staff’s goal is to help children to succeed. However, the student must make personal effort to learn and participate in school. It is the student’s responsibility to cooperate with the teacher and to do the best that they can to learn. When students make a positive effort to learn, they find success.

Always try, cooperate with others, respect others, and manage yourself.


Student Rights

The mission of the district is to assure learning experiences to help all students develop skills, competencies and attitudes fundamental to achieving individual satisfaction as responsible, contributing citizens.
