Red Rock Elementary

Welcome to Our School District

School Hours

Welcome to the home of the Red Rock Raiders. We are a small, rural District located in Red Rock, Arizona, centered one hour from Phoenix and thirty minutes from Tucson, Arizona. You’ll find our town in the lower Santa Cruz River Valley, near Picacho Peak State Park. We serve students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. Our faculty and staff value each child as an individual, while helping students continually strive for their personal best.

We hope you like our website. It contains a lot of helpful information, such as the school calendar, news and events going on in our school, and how to get in touch with us. We hope this site will answer any questions you may have about our district. If you are unable to find what you are looking for, please stop in and see us. We are here not only to provide a quality education for our students, but also to serve our community. We would love to see you.

Message From Our District Administrator

Dear Red Rock Community,

It is with honor that I introduce myself to you as the District Administrator of Red Rock Elementary School. Lillian Norris, who served as District Administrator for the past several years, retired July 1, 2017. I served as assistant principal under Lillian' s leadership, and it is with humble appreciation that I accepted the appointment for the position by the Red Rock Governing Board. 

Under my leadership, we plan to continue the pursuit of excellence in facilitating the needs of our students and families. We encourage a strong bond between parent/home and school. We hope to see all of you at our open house in August. Please know that my door is always open to any questions or concerns you may have. Together we will make 2017-2018 our best school year yet!
