Grab-and-Go Lunches Update
After an extraordinary effort by our finance and food service directors to overcome several layers of governmental red-tape, we are excited to share that the Iowa Dept. of Ed. has approved Roland-Story to provide grab-and-go lunches free to anyone 18 years old and under during the school closure period.

Details: Roland-Story schools is offering student grab-and-go lunches from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Meals (sack lunches) can be picked up at the main entrance of Roland-Story Elementary School (900 Hillcrest Drive in Story City) and Roland-Story Middle School (206 South Main in Roland).

If you cannot pick up meals during these times, you may arrange for home delivery as long as you live within school district boundaries. To make this request, or to request a special meal for your child to accommodate food allergies, please call the district’s central office at 515-733-4301.

We hope this service is helpful as we deal with an unprecedented situation in our communities. We will continue to look for ways to make life a little easier for our students and families over the next several weeks. Thank you for your flexibility and continued support.



Parents, if you would like to pick up your student's chromebook, books, or other materials they left at school over spring break please email Mr. Town (btown@roland-story.k12.ia.us) AND Sarah Jensen (sjensen@roland-story.k12.ia.us). Please include a description of the items and their location (locker, specific classroom, desk, etc.) We will contact you when we have the items ready to arrange a time for pick up. Thank you!

Norsemen Food Pantry is Open!

Attention Roland-Story families! The food pantry is available to all of our families in the district who may need assistance. The food pantry, thanks to support from the Food Bank of Iowa and our local chapter of Kiwanis International, will offer non-perishable food items, frozen food, dairy products and produce, as well as a variety of paper products and cleaning supplies.



Every Sunday from 4:00-5:00 p.m.

Appointments are not necessary. Families are asked to bring bags, boxes or laundry baskets to carry food home although some boxes will be available. To make a donation to the Norsemen Food Pantry or ask questions, please call Roland-Story Middle School at (515) 388-4348. 







To improve the safety for our students, RSMS has created a new location for parent pick-up and drop-off on the NORTH side of our building.  Parents have the entire stretch of Elm Street (now a ONE WAY STREET) to drop off their child with sidewalk access into our building.  We ask that students use the sidewalks available instead of walking through the grass or mud.  Please click on the link below to see a map of the new location.  Any questions please call Mr. Town at 388-4348.
