October Newsletter

Dear Students, Parents and the Roxbury Community,


The first month of school is behind us with great success.  It is wonderful to see our hallways filled with students once again.  Our afterschool CROP and Homework Help programs are in full swing, and our sports teams are enjoying a full season of soccer and golf.  


As we continue to follow state guidelines, we will be adjusting our calendar accordingly.  As a result, we will be postponing Open House, which was scheduled for October 7th.   We are developing plans to have a safe Open House in November, and will provide more information once the details are complete.


On Friday, October 22nd we will be conducting an emergency Evacuation Drill.  The purpose of the drill is to practice an evacuation of the school building to another location.  Our secondary location is the Jay Gould Church.  Everyone will evacuate the school building at 2:30pm. Once we arrive at the church, attendance will be documented and students will load the school bus.  The school buses will leave at 2:45. Once the school buses have left, parents who pick up their students will then be allowed to arrive to pick up and sign out their students. Vehicles will not be allowed into the Gould parking lot until after the busses have left.   No one will be allowed back in the school building after dismissal.  Students will need to ensure they have everything for the weekend.  There will be no CROP or Homework Help on the 22nd.


Looking ahead, as part of our school-wide goal of improving communication, we have begun the process of creating a new website.  We are working with Broome-Tioga BOCES to update and change our entire format.  The new website will provide better communication, a clean profile and a connection to social media sites, as well as an app for a more user-friendly interface.


Attendance to school and the completion off school work is a key to a successful student.  Please make sure, as long as your student is feeling well, that they arrive to school on time and are ready for a full day.  We know that school work and homework can be a struggle at times.   Please make sure your students take advantage of our after-school help program to get support from our staff if and when they need it.  


And finally, please note that this is will be the last paper copy of the newsletter sent home with your student.  The RCS monthly newsletter will now be available online at www.roxburycs.org under the “School” dropdown button.  We are excited to go digital with our newsletter, saving an enormous amount of paper and ink.  Paper menus will still be sent home with PK-6 students.  Enjoy the Fall and Stay Healthy,




Jeffrey J Bennett
