Principal's Rocket Orbiter

January 2019



Happy New Year Rockets! 


Welcome back to school! Red Hill teachers and staff are eager to take advantage of this prime learning time.  I would like to ask for your help.  School instruction is to begin at 8:00 a.m.  Our students  deserve every minute possible in class utilizing technology and benefiting from the strong instruction here at Red Hill.  Please help us by ensuring your child is at school before 7:55 a.m.  This will maximize student success. 


Also, student safety is a priority at Red Hill, please be certain to update all contact information in your parent portal and have a form of identification ready when signing students out of school early for appointments.  All visitors must sign in at the front desk and wear a visitor sticker.  Traffic congestion is to be expected on Red Hill so please allow extra time in and out of our parking lot.  Please follow the one way entry and exit-some creative parents are pulling “in the out” and creating a potential hazard.  If your child rides their bike to school, please remind them to wear their helmets, walk bikes in the parking lot and across streets, and to follow all traffic laws.  Our Woodlawn neighbors appreciate your courtesy when using the back gate.  Thank you for your cooperation.


We look forward to opening our Red Hill Innovation Space Station soon with tech tools and robots-watch our school Instagram accounts for daily updates of the work happening here on campus (@redhill_principal or @redhillrocks).
