If my student is absent, do I need to tell someone at the school?
If your student will be absent from school for any reason a phone call on the date of the absence is much appreciated.  All absences are marked as ‘unexcused’ unless we have been notified by a parent of the reason for the absence.
How do I get a message to my child during the school day?
In order to maximize learning time in the classroom, we limit direct interruptions to the classrooms.  Please contact the school office at 923-4884 with any messages for you child and the office staff will get the message to your child’s teacher during an appropriate time.
Is there anything I need to do to arrange volunteering in my child’s classroom?
Yes, in the Redmond School District, we require every volunteer to have pass a background screening check.  Applications and forms are available in the office or online.  The screening is free to parents.  After the screening has cleared, parents are able to set up volunteer times with individual teachers
