Great Royal Nation,
What an exciting time to be a Royal and football fan!
Our 9-0 undefeated Region 5 champion football team is ROARING! Let's keep that Royal Pride and great community support going, as we host a first round state playoff game this Friday, Oct. 31th. It's Halloween, too, and we hope it will be a "spooky" game for our opponent, the Tigers of Orem High School.
Please read "the plan" for Friday (below) carefully and thoroughly:
*The game begins @ 2:30 p.m. on Durbano Field.
*School will begin at the regularly scheduled time (late start/8:25 a.m.), and classes will be shortened. 2 lunches will be served.
*An Enrichment/”Don’t Text & Drive” Assembly will take place in the football stadium during the morning. Students will be dismissed from 1st period at 9:35 a.m., following announcements, to attend the assembly. It’s going to be a fabulous assembly, folks!
*The assembly will wrap up by 10:30 a.m. and students will be excused to go back to 2nd period.
*Blankets will be allowed to be used to reserve seats in the football stadium from 11:30 – 1:30 p.m. only!! The cost per blanket is $5 (as it was last game). One blanket will be allowed per patron. Those entering the stadium during this time to reserve seating, must also purchase (or show proof of purchase – a ticket) a ticket to the game and have their hand stamped. Tickets will be sold in the ticket booth during this time period.
*The stadium will be locked (no entrance) from 10:30-11:30 a.m. to ready it for the early state FB playoff game. It will also be locked/not accessible in the morning hours before school. Many patrons will wish to lay out blankets, but this will not be allowed before school on Friday due to the assembly we will be holding in the stadium. Blankets laid out at any time before the 11:30-1:30 time frame (including the night before) will be removed. We can't guarantee that students won't mess with your blankets during the assembly that morning. Thus, we've designated the 11:30-1:30 time frame (during most partrons' lunch hours) for blanket/reserved seating.
*Remember, only blankets can be used to reserve seating! We will provide string to be used to hold the blankets in place. You are welcome to bring string or bungee cords to secure your blanket. No duct tape, other types of tape, plastic bags, etc., will be allowed.
*The gates to the stadium will officially open at 1:30 p.m. to the general public.
*School will be dismissed at 1:50 p.m. There will be no pep assembly on this already disrupted school day!
*Tickets for the game will be available for early purchase Wednesday morning – Friday morning (before school, during lunch, and after school) in the bookkeeper's office/main office. The UHSAA dictates ticket prices for all state playoff games ($8 for adults; $5 for students; $5 for seniors – 65 and older; children 5 and under free). No parent, district or region passes will be accepted/allowed.
*Parking will be a MESS, Royal Nation! Plan accordingly. We’ll have students (not attending the game) leaving as fans for the game arrive. Let friends in the community know their best shot at a good parking slot is at 1:50 p.m. when we release school. Plan to park at Sand Ridge Park/nearby streets for overflow parking.
*Please help us inform students that bringing/using baby powder, silly string, and/or confetti/poppers will result in their losing the privilege to be at the game! We’ve let the student body have a bit of fun, but it’s gone beyond “out of control.” Silly string and confetti are “illegal” items (as per UHSAA), and baby powder is now on that list (at Roy High), going forward. We will make several announcements about these restrictions.
If you have any questions, please let us know! Best of luck to the football team and coaches! It's a great time to be a Royal!

Dear Royal Nation,
The 2014-2015 school year fast approaches! We hope you are enjoying these dwindling dog days of summer! It’s a great time to be a Royal! The purpose of this letter is to orient students and parents about a few things to expect as we embark on a new year. We will continue to implement a highly successful Royal R&R / Enrichment Program at Roy High—an academic program designed to provide a greater degree of support to ALL of our great students—from those achieving at the highest levels to those who may be struggling academically, attendance-wise, or in any other facet of high school life—and all students in between! We are committed to getting our Royals college & career ready, and, in an ever-changing, fast-paced world, educators must think outside of the box to prepare students for life beyond high school. We believe this ongoing Royal R&R (Review & Reward) program will continue to serve all of our students well, in this regard! Theattached bell schedule provides a visual of what the program looks like, integrated into our daily/weekly bell schedule. We’re excited to see you at registration (Seniors: Aug. 6th - 8-11 a.m.; Juniors: Aug. 6th – 12-3 p.m.; Sophomores: Aug. 7th - 8-11 a.m. You’ll get your photo taken for your student ID, and school dress code is in effect!
