Principal's Corner

  • Welcome to Roosevelt High School Principal's Corner

     Ms. Dancy

    Dear Parents/Guardians:

    On behalf of the entire Roosevelt Team, I welcome you to the 2019-20 school year. I hope you enjoyed making new memories and a restful summer. As I begin my second year at Roosevelt, I am particularly grateful for the blessing of this community of students and families. I am eager to begin another first day of school with you on Tuesday, August 13th.  

    Over the past year, we spent countless hours deliberating on how to improve home and school connections to have a greater effect on student academic and social outcomes. We are fully engaged in the process of strengthening our academic and social programs to better serve our students and facilitate school-family connections. 

    We are very excited of what the upcoming year promises to offer. My team and I are committed to serving our students and thank you for your ongoing support of Roosevelt High School where we embrace “A culture of care, support and high expectations.”

Roosevelt Headlines




    New Vaccination Required! Before our 7th grade and 11th grade students start 8th and 12th grade (respectively) in 2017-2018, they must receive a vaccine against meningitis, an infection of the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. 


    Students entering 8th grade must also receive the Tdap vaccine, so parents can get them done during the same visit to the doctor. If your student going into the 12th grade received the first meningitis immunization at age 16 or later, a second one will not be needed. Otherwise, two are required for 12th grade students. Please have this immunization done as soon as possible, and make sure your School Nurse receives a copy. Please contact your School Nurse or the Nurse Coordinator at 314-345-4401 for questions.
