At RUBY YOUNG ELEMENTARY we are committed to providing an environment that builds a solid foundation for our future scholars. Each day, students, teachers and administrators share in a common goal to provide a thriving learning environment that promotes academic success far beyond the classroom. It is with this commitment, that students and staff recite the following Student Affirmation each morning.

Good afternoon, Platinum Parents!

Thank you all for a successful last week!

Also, February is American Heart Month. Visit http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/ for more information regarding heart health. As one of the district's campuses with a medical focus we want to ensure that our staff, student body, parents and community partners remain educated on ways to enhance and maintain good health.

Here are your reminders for this week:.

  • Daily attendance is important! Remember our goal is 97% or higher for each grade level. You can assist us with meeting this goal by making sure that your child is present and on time each day.
  • Flu season is in full force. Please encourage your child to wash his/her hands after using the restroom or being outside. In addition, if your child has a fever, they must stay home for at least 24 hours after the fever has stopped. Any questions regarding the flu and ways to stay well can be addressed to our school nurse, Ms. George.
  • Respect is a high priority in terms of character. Ensure that your students are clear about their responsibility to remain respectful to all staff as well as with their peers. 
  • Positive classroom behavior is an expectation. When students disrupt the classroom with unacceptable behavior(s) this disrupts the learning environment. Majority of our students are doing a tremendous job at staying on task during class. Let's continue to reinforce the importance of positive behavior at school.
  • FYI-Our two school rules are: 1) Follow directions the first time they are given. 2) Keep your hands, feet and other objects to yourself. If we abide by these two rules everything should work out well on a daily basis.

Communication Protocol

  • If you have questions or concerns about your student's progress, please contact your child's teacher via email or a phone message. The school phone number is 972-223-6505.
  • Please allow a 24-hour window for campus staff to respond to your communication. Typically, teachers will return your phone call or respond to your email at the end of the school day or on their planning period depending on the time the message was sent/received.
  • Please address campus level concerns with the principal. This can be done by completing the School Communication Form which is located at the front desk. Again, please allow a 24-hour window for your concern to be addressed. 

Thanks so much for your continued support as we progress through this academic session! Have a wonderful week!
