Welcome to Redwood Valley High School


           Rick Jorgenson

Welcome to Redwood Valley High School! Whether you are new to the school or coming back again, we welcome you and are excited for a new year.

You are invited to attend the orientation and Back-to-School Night planned for you on Thursday, August 14, 2014, beginning at 6:10 p.m. in the high school Performing Arts Center (PAC). Class schedules may be picked up at the PAC beginning at 6:00 p.m. Parents/guardians and students are encouraged to attend. The format of the night is changing this year, as we will be meeting in homerooms. Here is the schedule:

6:00-6:30: Pick up Schedules/Assembly in PAC with Principal

6:45-7:15: Homeroom Meetings:  Pick up schedule, forms to fill out, etc.

7:15-8:00: Visit teachers and find classrooms

Your class schedule will be available as well as locker number and location, homeroom advisor, and class locations. Assistance will be available to help you find rooms, lockers, etc. Money may be deposited into your meal account during the evening if desired or your child may do this prior to classes during the school day. Padlocks ($6) and activity tickets ($20) will be sold this evening and will also be available during school days. All payments may be done with one check by filling out a fee form for each child in the commons. Assistance will be available for you in that location.

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 questions you may have, as well as giving you an opportunity to meet them. You may register for Skyward Family Access (allows you to view your child’s school information/grades/etc. using your computer and internet connection) if you do not currently have this.

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.

We hope you can attend Back to School Night and look forward to seeing you then. If you cannot attend and have questions prior to school starting, please feel free to call the high school or stop by during daytime hours.
