News & Events
So much is happening in our small district! One of our goals is to help keep you informed of all the changes and positive activities taking place at Red Rock Elementary. We’ll be updating this page frequently with the latest news and events, always keeping you “in the know.”
Red Rock Elementary is ready to move to a new learning environment. Beginning on Monday, March 30, we will launch remote teaching and learning for pre-k through 8th grade remote learning. Students will have the opportunity to engage in learning and improve or maintain their existing skills. We are still working out a number of details, however, it is important that we continue educating your children while schools are closed.
We know that as we begin working in this new learning environment not everything will be perfect. It will take time for each of us to learn new tools, overcome technology challenges, work together without in-person interaction, and just accept that school is different. We may not immediately have answers to all of your questions, but we will work diligently to find answers and communicate them to you. Everyone's patience and understanding will be critical to achieving success.
Please take a moment to read District Administrator Peter Dwyer's complete letter to families regarding our online curriculum update.
Governor Doug Ducey and Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman recently announced the extension of Arizona school closures through the end of the school year. The extension follows updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and an announcement from the White House extending physical distancing guidelines until April 30, 2020.
Please read the important announcement regarding the extension of Arizona school closures for more information.
Red Rock Elementary School will be providing meals for all children 17 years and under with the support of Red Rock Village Church. We can only serve children that are present. No one can receive a meal if not present. All meals will include breakfast and lunch, along with milk and juice. Food service will begin on Monday, March 23 from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m., and we will serve to-go packs of lunch daily through the entirety of the school closure. Please see our school meals during school closure letter for more information.
We know the importance of your child’s education, so we have created a variety of online curriculum resources, as well as resources you can do at home without internet during the school closure. It is important that your child continues to have access to learning during this time. Please see our Curriculum at Home page. Thank you in advance for your support!
Arizona law (A.R.S. 43-1089.01) allows taxpayers to receive a tax credit of up to $200 for a single individual or a head of household and $400 for a married couple filing a joint return for donations that benefit students in our public schools. Every dollar you donate goes directly to our school. That is not just a deduction, it is a tax credit. It reduces what you owe in state taxes, dollar-for-dollar.
Send in your donation with the tax donation form to Red Rock Elementary School District and earmark it for support of one of our qualifying extracurricular activities. We will send you a receipt for your records. You can donate through April 15 each year and claim your donation on the previous or current tax year. Please see our Arizona tax credit donations flyer and visit our Arizona Tax Credit page for more information. Thank you in advance for supporting our school!
