Greetings, Falcons! Please see below for important information regarding the upcoming school year. 


Chromebooks

All students will have a Chromebook checked out to them. Please review the information below for your child’s campus.

New Royal ISD Students

Your child's campus will reach out regarding Chromebook distribution.

Royal High School and Royal Junior High

  • Most RJH and RHS students kept their devices over the summer. They will be expected to use the same device for the upcoming school year. If your student checked in his/her device, please reach out to the campus for further instructions.

STEM and ECHS:

  • STEM (Grades 2-8) and ECHS Grade 9 ONLY will be able to pick up their Chromebooks on August 13th and 14th from 9 AM to 3 PM each day at the Royal STEM Academy.
  • In addition, ECHS students, grades 9-12, will pick up their LONE STAR COLLEGE textbooks for DUAL CREDIT CLASSES ONLY on August 13th and 14th from 9 AM to 3 PM at the Royal STEM Academy.
  • ECHS students who did NOT turn in their Spring 2020 Lone Star College Textbooks will be REQUIRED to turn in the SPRING 2020 LSC textbooks before being allowed to check out Fall 2020 LSC Textbooks.
  • When you visit the students’ campus to pick up your child’s Chromebook and/or textbooks, you will need to bring the student’s school ID card or Z-Pass Bus Tag for EACH child. If you are unable to bring the student ID or bus tag, a parent’s driver’s license may be used. If neither is available, the district will advise you about next steps to verify student enrollment, and you may return on Thursday and Friday for an additional opportunity to checkout a Chromebook.

Royal Elementary (PK-1 and 2-5)

  • Chromebook distribution for students that turned in over the summer and newly registered students is August 13-14. Elementary will pass out the Chromebooks at PK-1 and 2-5 from 9:00 AM-4:00 PM.
  • When you visit the students’ campus to pick up your child’s Chromebook, you will need to bring the student’s school ID card or Z-Pass Bus Tag for EACH child. If you are unable to bring the student ID or bus tag, a parent’s driver’s license may be used. If neither is available, the district will advise you about next steps to verify student enrollment, and you may return on Thursday and Friday for an additional opportunity to checkout a Chromebook.
  • If families cannot pick up their student’s Chromebook on August 13-14, they will need to pick them up from Royal High School between Monday 8/17 and Thursday 8/20.
  • Please contact the IT helpline (281.934.6900) for additional information. 

Smart Buses (Falcon Learning Zones) 

Smart Buses will be located throughout the community. A schedule of location and hours will be posted on the District website and social media accounts. This will allow students to access their remote learning materials and provide them with safe, filtered access to educational content and resources. 


Campus Access Points

Each RISD campus will have a WiFi access point for student use. The access points are highlighted in yellow on each campus image. NOTE: The access points listed below will be changed on or around August 26, 2020 to offer a stronger signal to our students.
