Great Royal Nation!
We thank-you (profusely!) for the ongoing support of Roy High School, and our football team, specifically, at this pivotal point in the program's history! A Roy High Football Team has NEVER gone undefeated and won a region title (in the same year), and we are on the precipice of doing just that! Our student-athletes have worked so hard, and Head Coach Fred Fernandes and his amazing staff have "restored the ROAR" to the program. The community support has been phenomenal and we hope it continues through the region title game and state playoffs!
With that said, we've had ongoing issues related to the large crowds and seating at home football games all season long. Thus, we've made some hard decisions that will be enforced at this Thursday's Region 5 Championship Game and throughout the 4A state play-offs. The Region 5 Title Game begins at 7:00 p.m. on Durbano Field, and gates will open earlier than usual--@ 5:30 p.m.
Please read the following bullet points related to restrictions for the game, and for the state play-off games we will host in coming weeks:
*Blankets will be allowed to "reserve seats" but only under the following guidelines -
(1) They must be placed on the bleachers between 6:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 23rd, only! Access to the stadium after 1:00 p.m will be denied;
(2) For each blanket a patron uses to reserve seats, there will be a $5 charge. This charge is in addition to the cost of a ticket for the game. An assigned faculty member/patron will be available between 6 a.m. - 1 p.m. to take the $5 fee (cash only) and Roy City Police Officers will be on hand all day to make sure things go smoothly; (3) Blankets are the only item that will be allowed to be used to reserve seats - plastic bags, taped off areas, tarps, etc., will not be allowed, as the tape being used to secure seating is causing extensive damage to the seating areas. Bungee cords or string may be used to secure blankets to bleachers.;
(4) Blankets will only be allowed in 2 seating areas which will be marked and enforced. Once these specified areas are full, no additional blankets may be used to reserve seating in other areas.;
(5) Those interested in reserving seating via a blanket/fee must enter the stadium at the gate behind the home concession stand, only. Any items placed in the stadium prior to Thursday morning will be removed; and
(6) Any violations of these guidelines will result in loss of items used to secure seating and/or denied entry to the game. Non-approved items used for reserving seats will be removed!
*No canopies, umbrellas, and/or awnings will be allowed to be set up in the stadium or seating areas!
*No signs are allowed during UHSAA sanctioned games!
Lastly, we want everyone to get Rowdy and enjoy the upcoming games! Our kids and coaches deserve this time in the spotlight - It's R time! We will be providing additional seating (bleachers) in various areas of the stadium, so arrive early (by 5:30 p.m.) to make sure you get the seat you want!
We have the best fans in the state and the Royals are Rockin'!! Let's make some noise and cheer our Royal Football Team to a Region Title (and 4A state championship)!!
Go Royals, Go!!

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!
