Dear Royal Families, Student safety our top priority for us and we take all parent and student concerns very seriously. This morning a concerned parent posted about an issue with a school bus at a railroad crossing. All RISD buses are equipped with cameras and the video of the bus in question has been reviewed. The District Administration found no wrong doing on behalf of the bus driver mentioned in the facebook post. Thank you to the community for bringing issues such as this to our attention.
Dear Falcon Parents: There was an issue on yesterday (April 2, 2019) with one restroom at Royal High School. The problem was identified in the girl’s restroom on the 2nd floor, so we immediately closed the restroom and turned off the water in the entire building to resolve the problem. The plumbing problem was quickly resolved and the facilities at Royal High were fully functioning yesterday afternoon. We were able to host our annual National Honor Society Induction Ceremony last night without any issues or concerns. As the Campus Principal at Royal High School, I personally checked all restrooms both boys and girls in addition to all water fountains to ensure campus safety. I want to assure the community that all facilities at Royal High School are functioning properly. I also want to our community to know that campus safety is a top priority at Royal High School and The Royal Independent School District. We strive to ensure that all students and staff members are in a safe environment that optimizes learning for all students. Sincerely, Tony L. Runnels, Jr. Principal Royal High School Go Falcons!!!!!

Ask questions to encourage responsible behavior Kids who behave responsibly get along better with teachers and classmates. They are also more likely to try, follow through and succeed in school. To help your child consider the consequences of her actions, ask questions like "How do you think Sarah felt when you said that?" Asking "What happened first?" or "Why do you think that happened?" helps develop your child's understanding of her role in a situation. http://niswc.com/15caC320271
Haga preguntas que fomenten el comportamiento responsable Los niños responsables se llevan mejor con los maestros y compañeros de clase. También suelen probar cosas nuevas, perseverar y tener éxito en la escuela. Para ayudar a su hijo a tener en cuenta las consecuencias de sus acciones, hágale preguntas como, "¿Cómo crees que se sintió Sara cuando le dijiste eso?" Preguntar "¿Qué sucedió primero?" o "¿Por qué piensas que sucedió eso?" ayudará a su hijo a comprender su función en cierta situación. http://niswc.com/25caC320271
Relájese y observe la naturaleza con su hijo Utilice los juegos al aire libre para promover las habilidades de observación y la creatividad de su hijo. Para ayudarlo a beneficiarse de la naturaleza, hágale preguntas como, "¿Puedes sentir en qué dirección sopla el viento?" o "¿Qué está haciendo esa hormiga?" Dígale que cierre los ojos e identifique los sonidos que oye. Y no se apresuren para volver a entrar. Dele tiempo para dibujar con un palito o tocar una flor. ¿Puede inventar un poema o una historia sobre la naturaleza? http://niswc.com/25cZC320271
Relax and observe nature with your child Use outdoor play to build your child's observation skills and creativity. To help him learn and benefit from nature, ask questions like, "Can you feel where the wind is coming from?" or "What is that ant doing?" Have him close his eyes, then identify the sounds he hears. Don't rush back inside; give your child time to draw with a stick or touch a flower. Can he make up a poem or story about the outdoors? http://niswc.com/15cZC320271
Supervise las actividades en línea de su hijo y hable de ellas Internet puede ser una maravillosa herramienta de aprendizaje para los niños. Pero es importante que verifique que su hijo la use de forma segura. El FBI recomienda que usted supervise el uso que su hijo hace de internet. Esté al tanto de los sitios web que visita. Hable sobre sus valores con él. Dígale qué sitios están prohibidos, y por qué. Recuérdele que nunca debe dar información personal, pues las personas en internet podrían no ser quienes dicen ser. http://niswc.com/25cYC320271
Supervise and discuss your child's online activities The internet can be a wonderful learning tool for children. But it's important to make sure your child uses it safely. The FBI recommends that you supervise your child's internet use. Know the sites she visits. Talk about your values with your child, and let her know which sites are off limits and why. Remind her that she should never give out personal information; people on the internet may not be who they seem. http://niswc.com/15cYC320271
