Directions to Our School
Red Trail Families
We are reminding you that we will be handing out student iPads on Wednesday, March 25, from 7 am to 7 pm. Once again, drive into the parent pickup and bus loops and a staff member will walk to your vehicle. We ask that you provide them with the student or student’s name and classroom teacher. A staff member will deliver your iPad to your vehicle without you leaving your vehicle. I strongly encourage you to make plans to pick up devices during these hours, as other times will be difficult to accommodate, due to staff availability and the safety of all individuals. If these times do not work, please call 751-6508 and leave a message and someone will be in touch with you.

As we transition to our "new normal" the best way to contact your teacher is by visiting our website and emailing them directly or any other communication system you have set up. You can access their emails at:
The main office will be closed to take calls until further notice, but you may leave a message and it will be routed to the appropriate staff member. It's exciting to see teachers learning and collaborating as they explore new ways to deliver curriculum.

Stay safe and healthy. We miss your children!
