MOMO Challenge



You may be aware of the MOMO Challenge that has recently been in the news.  In our schools, we are not aware of any students actually watching or spreading videos but we have had some kids who have heard about MOMO and are talking about it.   We don't want to bring awareness to it if students don't know about it but we don't want to ignore it either.  It’s something our staff are watching closely. 


Whether the MOMO Challenge is real, a hoax, or just a creepy character, it does remind us all of a few things:  Know what your kids are doing online and on social media.  Set parental controls on devices.  Talk with your child about online safety.


Here is some additional information about this topic.  With everyone aware and working together we can ensure this doesn't become a major problem in our community.


Highly Capable Program Referral Form

Royal School District is currently accepting referrals to have students evaluated for the Highly Capable Program.  The Highly Capable program is intended for students who demonstrate skills or interests that are comparatively rare, considerably early, and/or significantly more advanced than their peers.  Students may be gifted in one subject or in several subjects.   Students in any grade may be referred for testing.  Referral forms can be obtained from the main office at any of the schools.  You may also print your own form by going to this link,  https://royal.wednet.edu/rsd/images/documents/highlycapable/ENG_Hi-Cap_Referral_form-_2018_Updates.pdf for the English version. If you prefer to fill out an electronic form instead, you can do so by going to this link:  https://goo.gl/forms/HWj4IXEjnfRN28qv2 or for Spanish please use this link: https://goo.gl/forms/meBVPAzhmYMzfV8v2

The completed forms can be turned into the office at any of the schools.  Please return forms by March 15th.  If you have further questions, please contact Polly Carlson, the Royal School District Highly Capable Coordinator at 346-2256 ext 3119 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

ROYAL CITY, WA – Early results show Royal voters have approved their local $16.58 million school bond in yesterday’s special election, with the current Yes vote at 62.96%.  Royal School District’s 18-year bond will cover three major renovation projects at the high school, middle school, and bus garage. These projects aim at addressing student and staff safety, growing enrollment, and insufficient infrastructure across Royal schools.

Superintendent, Roger Trail was thrilled by the outpouring of community support, including the work done by Citizens to Support Royal Schools.  “Katie Allred and Katie Christensen, in their roles as co-chairs of the committee, were vital in leading a successful campaign”, Trail said.  “The voters just acknowledged the importance of safety in our schools along with their desire to have excellent facilities for our students and staff.”  Mr. Trail said that he looks forward to the next steps in the process including working with the architect and design teams to fine-tune the plans before construction.

Community members can expect more information on what to expect for their schools and the construction process as the District moves forward with planning.
