      • Value others’ lives, contributions, time, property, expectations, personal space, and well being
      • Show empathy and kindness towards others


Our students will:

      • Demonstrate accountability for their learning
      • Take ownership for their actions

Roy Jr. High offers: Football, Softball, Volleyball, NAL (National Academic League), Boys Basketball, Girls Basketball, Baseball, Track and Field. For the athletic eligbility policy, see the entry under Eligibility.


According to Utah State Law and School Board Policy: “The student is responsible to be present in class and the parent, guardian, or other person having control of any such minor between six and eighteen years of age shall be required to send such minor to school during the regularly established school day in the attendance area of residence.” Students are expected to be at school in each class each day unless properly excused by their parents, administration, advisor, or teacher. A student not properly excused will be considered truant.

Truancies may result in:

    1. A drop in citizenship in the missed classes
    2. Lunch Intervention
    3. In-School Solutions
    4. Referral to the Administration/MTSS Specialist
    5. Referral to the District Office

Parents may excuse students for illness or family emergencies. When parents request to have their children excused for reasons other than illness or family emergencies, arrangements for such absences should be made in advance.

When a student is absent from school, a phone call to the Attendance Secretary (801-476-5264) by the guardian will excuse the student for that day. Absences not properly excused will be considered truant.

Tardies: In order to optimize the opportunity students have for an education at Roy Junior High School, we feel that it is extremely important for students to be in class on time. Punctuality is a very important life skill and students need to begin developing this skill by making every effort to be on time, ready to begin when the bell rings. A student who arrives after the first 15 minutes of class will be marked as absent.

Consistent tardiness will result in the following consequences:

    • 3 per quarter: “N” in citizenship is earned
    • 4 per quarter: Parents notified that a “U” citizenship grade will be given for 5 tardies
    • 5 per quarter: “U” in citizenship is earned
    • 6+ per quarter: Referral to administration

Checking in and out of school: Sometimes doctor appointments, dentist appointments, and family emergencies, etc. cause a student to arrive late or leave early from school. When arriving late, the procedure is for a guardian to call the Attendance Secretary (801-476-5264). When leaving early, a parent, legal guardian or someone designated as an emergency contact will be allowed to excuse a student. The parent or legal guardian must provide adequate identification in the school and sign their student out. If a student becomes ill or is involved in an accident and the school cannot reach a parent/guardian, emergency contacts will be called.

Roy Jr. adheres to the attendance policy set forth by Weber School District Policy 4170.


Weber School District prohibits students and employees from bullying other students and/or employees on school property, at school-related events, on school busses or bus stops, or while traveling to or from school, school events, or bus stops, and encourages all targets of bullying and all persons with knowledge of bullying to report the incident(s) immediately.

Weber School District prohibits students and employees from cyber-bullying and hazing another student or employee at any time or in any location where the cyber-bullying or hazing creates a substantial and material disruption at school, or it is reasonably foreseeable that the cyber-bullying or hazing will create a substantial and material disruption at school.

Weber School District prohibits students and employees from retaliating against another student or employee who reports, investigates, or participates as a witness to a bullying, hazing, or cyber-bullying incident. All targets of retaliation are encouraged to report the incident(s) immediately.

Weber School District prohibits false allegations of bullying, cyber-bullying, hazing or retaliation.

Students found recording fights or other inappropriate behavior at school will be subject to disciplinary action including suspension.


See Weber School District Bus Policy.


See "Electronic Devices."


Weber School District uses the following categories to assign citizenship grades which are separate from academic grades. H = Honorable, S = Satisfactory, N = Needs Improvement, U = Unsatisfactory.


Our schedule is extremely tight and class changes are usually very difficult to make. A $10.00 class change fee is assessed unless there is a mistake in the schedule.


In order to ensure student safety, students are not allowed to leave the campus unless properly checked out in the main office. Students leaving campus without properly checking out will be considered truant.


Credit will be earned each quarter. It is very important to understand that each quarter stands alone. Therefore, every lost credit needs to be made-up. All ninth grade credit earned is used for high school graduation as well as scholarship applications. Any ninth grade credit loss should be made up during summer school, in after-school or online classes, or at the future high school. Graduation may be in jeopardy if this credit is not made up during summer school or after-school classes.


In order to help students make up credit in a timely manner, Roy Jr High School has instituted the Credit Recovery Program for 9th Grade students. If a student fails a class, the teacher will give the student the opportunity to make up the class during the NEXT QUARTER. The student must take the credit recovery form/receipt to the teacher no later than two (2) weeks after receiving the final grade. A student must be within 15% of passing a class for credit recovery to be taken advantage of. If the student performed far below passing standards in the class, the teacher/counselor should direct the student to another option for credit make-up.

    1. The student must pick up the Credit Recovery Form in the Counseling Office
    2. Pay the $35 make-up fee at the bookkeeper’s office
    3. Take the receipt to the school counselor to register.

If the student satisfactorily completes the work the teacher directs him/her to do, in the time allotted, a “P” (Pass) will be issued and credit granted. The original “F” grade remains on the student transcript. Credit recovery will be available through Weber Online to make-up 4th quarter failing grades due to summer vacation. If the make-up work is not done satisfactorily or not completed on time, no credit will be given and the credit recovery fee will be forfeited. Students not eligible for Credit Recovery are welcome to use Edgenuity or Weber Online ($35) for Credit Make-up. 


A dance is different from the stomps we hold right after school. These are the dance policies: 

    • Only current Roy Jr. 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students may attend a dance at Roy Jr. High.
    • The dances will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. All Students must be picked up by 8:15 p.m.
    • Best dress is expected (or dress as specified for thematic dances).
    • There will be no moshing or dirty dancing.
    • Students who do not adhere to dance rules will be asked to leave.


Anyone who willfully destroys property through vandalism, arson, larceny, or who tampers with the fire alarms, fire extinguishers, or any electrical system will be referred to the proper law enforcement agency. Students and parents shall be held responsible for paying for damage to personal or public property.
