The Back-to-School Extravaganza will happen Saturday, August 17, 2019 at William Fleming High School from 9 a.m. to noon.  Each Roanoke City Schools student that attends the Extravaganza will receive a bag with basic school supplies.  Transportation will be provided from:  Bluestone Park, Hunt Manor, Indian Rock Village, Jamestown Place, Landsdowne Park (library), Melrose Towers, and Pilot Street NW (Country Cookin on Melrose).  Buses will depart from the front of each community center beginning at 8:30 a.m.  Buses will leave on the half-hour and return on the hour.

If you are new to Roanoke City or need to register your child for Kindergarten, we strongly suggest you register before the first day of school.  You register at the school your child will attend.  For a list of documents needed for registration, Click here.

The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) will return for the 2019-2020 School Year.  Students at CEP schools receive free breakfast and lunch.  Every Roanoke City school qualifies for CEP except Crystal Spring and Grandin Court Elementary Schools.  Students attending non-CEP schools may still apply for Free and Reduced meal benefits. 

ALERT:  State changes for Tdap immunization requirements for entry into seventh grade.

In April 2018, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) changed the minimum recommended age for the tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis (Tdap) adolescent booster vaccine from 10 to 11 years. As a result, a routine adolescent booster dose of Tdap should not be administered to students younger than 11 years of age.

To align with current ACIP recommendations, the 2019 General Assembly passed HB 2215 that changes the grade in which students receive Tdap vaccine from sixth to seventh grade. Students who received a Tdap immunization at age ten will not need another Tdap vaccine to enter seventh grade. This legislation becomes effective July 1, 2019

The Roanoke City Health Department will offer FREE immunization clinics.  Students must bring current immunization record.  If you have any questions, please call (540) 283-5050.  Here is the schedule:
