Freshman Orientation

To ensure students are acclimated and adjusted to Roger Bacon, all freshmen are required to attend a two-day orientation. These orientation days will take place on Thursday, August 15th from 7:45 am – 2:45 pm and Friday, August 16th from 7:45 am – 12:30 pm Students will meet their teachers, receive and walk through their schedules, interact with senior leaders, receive their school issued iPad and most of all have fun. Some important items for these two days:
    - Standard school uniform is required on the first day of orientation.
    - Parents are to use the main driveway for drop-off and pick-up. 
    - Please pack a lunch for Thursday.
    - Pizza will be provided on Friday.

iPad Pick-up

Freshmen:  In order for your student to receive his/her iPad, all summer forms must be submitted by August 1, 2019. iPads will be issued during Freshman Orientation. We are hosting a parent meeting regarding the use of the iPad in the classroom. One parent/guardian must attend one of the following meetings: Thursday, August 15th at 8:00 am or 6:00 pm Both meetings will take place in the Information and Technology Center (ITC) and should last about 45 minutes. We will share some basic functions of the device and provide an opportunity to ask questions.  

Upperclass:  iPad distribution for returning upperclass students will take place at the below dates and times. You must attend one of the iPad distribution times.
    - Monday, August 12th at either 3:00 pm or 6:00 pm
    - Tuesday, August 13th at either 9:00 am or 12:00 pm
In order to receive iPads, you must have your iPad case for protection purposes (bring it with you) and summer forms must be submitted by August 1, 2019. We cannot issue an iPad until all required forms have been received - thanks for your cooperation.
