Redwood Valley  High School 

 


A word from the principal:


Thank you for visiting the RVHS home page. Redwood Valley takes pride in bettering each students' future whether that be post-secondary or career based. RVHS is in the third year of the Privilege-Based Attendance System (See Video Below), Ramp-Up to Readiness, and the 1:1 initiative where all students have a Chromebook.  In an effort to better prepare our students for the future, we are starting Cardinal Academic Success Time (CAST).  Basically, it is a time for students to receive remediation during the school day (see video below).

Communication is a priority.  Each of our high school teachers has a website and a Schoology account that is used both to inform parents and students about their classes.  The Principal’s Weekly Emails are sent out through Skyward and posted on this website.  Every student in the high school is part of a homeroom, which meets weekly to check grades and attendance.  Students will remain in the same homeroom (same teacher and students) for their entire high school career. 
 
As a School District, we are moving toward using less paper and more electronic communication. Consequently, it is important to provide the school with your current email addresses and cell phone numbers. Also make sure you have access to Skyward which is our student management system.  This system allows you to view current grades, report cards, lunch account balances, and student schedules.


Information will be presented to prepare you for your first day of class in the high school, as well as providing you an opportunity to ask questions.  Teachers will be available in classrooms to provide class information and answer any questions you may have, as well as giving you an opportunity to meet them. 

In an effort to streamline information and improve family access, a great deal of information will be posted on our website, at www.redwoodareaschools.com.  (Click on “Schools,”and “Redwood Valley High School.”  You should see a folder titled “Back to School”).   It is important that you take some time to look over this information and ask questions.  If you do not have internet access, you may stop in the high school office to obtain copies, or to request a form to have these materials mailed home.

It is important that you fill out the Family Online Permission Form (Available August 1).  This year it will be on Skyward.  Instructions to access the form are:

            1) Log into your Skyward Parent Portal.

2) Locate the notification that reads "Online Registration is now open". Click/tap the "Go to Online Registration For ..." to access the form. Alternatively, click/tap the "Online Registration" button, and choose a child you will complete the form for.

3) Read through each statement. Click or tap each checkbox to agree to it, or choose from one of the given options.

4) At the bottom of the form, type in your name and date, then click the "Complete Step 1 Only" button.

5) To make any changes, click the "Edit Step 1" button at the bottom of the page to edit your responses.

6) When finished, click the "Next Step" button located towards the upper-right corner of the form.

7) Click the "Submit Online Registration" button to submit your registration.

8) Complete the same process for any remaining children.

If you have questions, do not have a login/password, or need assistance, contact the HS Office.

Once again, if you have any questions, feel free to contact any staff member.  

Sincerely,
Rick Jorgenson
Principal
