Welcome to Our School District

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 Elementary Community,

It is hard to believe that our school year has concluded. I am incredibly proud of the resiliency everyone involved has shown, as we transitioned to remote learning for the last two months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While not everything has been perfect, I know every decision was made with the best of intentions and focused on the safety of our students, staff, and community.

As we look ahead to the 2020–2021 school year, we are in the process of putting a number of things into place. School districts throughout the state are waiting for additional guidance from the Arizona Department of Education and state and local health authorities. As of now, Red Rock Elementary is planning for three different scenarios: in-person instruction, remote learning, and a combination/hybrid of the two. 

We recognize that these are still uncertain times and unchartered waters with many unknowns and considerations. However, the planning process is underway, and together we will be ready. Please know that all decisions our school district will make moving forward will be largely based on the safety of our students and staff. It is important that as a community we continue to work together. 

Please stay safe, and have a wonderful summer!

Warmest Regards,
