Health Screening Required - Those families who selected to have their child return to in-seat instruction agreed to perform a daily health screening for their child as well as abide by the conditions outlined in the Family Guide. (The complete updated Family Guide will be found on the COVID-19 page on the District website.) Please remember to login to the Powerschool Parent Portal and complete the health screening every school day for your child(ren).

Employment Opportunity - Schroeder is looking for a few people to join our Noon Aide team! This is a paid position that involves supervising and assisting our students in the cafeteria and on the playground during lunch and lunch recess. If you are interested in learning more about this position, please email Gretchen at gohman@troy.k12.mi.us.

Picture Day Schedule - We are currently working on a picture day schedule with Kaiser Studios for all of our students. A Sign-up Genius link will be emailed to parents who have children in the virtual learning setting as soon as a date is set. Students who are in-seat will have their photo taken during the school day and will not need to sign-up. Thank you for your patience as we work through the details.

Yearbook Photos - In an effort to bring normalcy to a year that has been anything but normal, there will still be a 2020/2021 Schroeder yearbook! We are asking families to upload some candid pictures of their children taken during their virtual learning to be included in the yearbook. Please see the instructions below on how to upload your photos.

Outdoor Recess Reminder - All in-seat students are expected to come to school prepared for outdoor recess. A warm coat, a hat, gloves, and boots are essential during the cold weather. If a child does not come to school with boots, they will play in a small cleared area on the playground and cannot participate fully in outdoor recess. Also, all students are sent outside, even if they do not bring a hat or gloves. Please send your child prepared for outdoor recess. Please know that the Troy School District has revised the outdoor recess policy. Students will participate in outdoor recess when the temperature is 10 degrees and above.

Students in Miss Ris' class enjoy the Michigan weather!
