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.

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.

Message From Our Principal
Dear Red Rock Elementary Families,
Welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful and safe summer! On behalf of the staff at Red Rock Elementary School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure your children can achieve their highest potential. During this different time of learning, it is important for all of us to continue to work together to ensure your child has success. We recognize that in order to be successful during distance learning and/or in person learning, your children need support from both home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your children’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for your children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your children’s learning by ensuring that he/she:
- Attends school daily whether it is through our synchronous (live) lessons, asynchronous (recorded) lessons, or completing a distance learning packet.
- Completes all independent classwork.
- Reach out to your children’s teacher when they need support, so we may offer guidance and additional support.
- Encourage your children to share school experiences with you to celebrate successes.
Red Rock Elementary School teachers and staff have been working diligently over the summer to prepare for distance learning and when we move into in person learning. We are excited to offer a new form of technology to our students while learning from home called the Swivl. The Swivl is a device that is used to allow teachers to set up an Ipad and remote to allow mobility while teaching both in person and online.
Our students will be able to view their teacher and learn from either their classroom or home and be a part of the live lesson. This allows our teachers to teach from within the classroom and meet the needs of both in person students and the students learning from home.
Our Red Rock Elementary School teachers have created Google Classroom platforms with a uniform look across the grade levels. This will allow your family to be able to learn one style of distance learning and hopefully eliminate frustrations.
Our teachers will provide synchronous (live) lessons in reading, writing, and math, with science and social studies integration. These lessons will all be recorded and uploaded into your children’s Google Classroom under asynchronous (recorded) lessons. This will provide flexibility for all of your family’s needs. In addition, we are excited to have asynchronous lessons in PE, art, and counseling that your children can view at any time during the week.
We are all looking forward to that day when we can have our students safely back in the classroom in person, but for now, we are thrilled to be able to see their faces through the live lessons. Building these relationships with your children and their teachers will create a smooth transition when we are back in the classroom face to face.
Thank you for your partnership and trust in your children’s education. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
