Red Rock Elementary needs and encourages parents/guardians to be involved in their child’s education. Parents formed a PTO in Royal City because they wanted to support academic and cultural programs, as well as enhance communication between home and school. There are a variety of opportunities to become involved. Through parent volunteer group, classroom help, PTO, PAC meetings and other support at home, parents are an integral part of their child’s school success.

Student Check Out

No student shall be removed from the school grounds or from school buildings during school hours except by a person authorized to do so by a parent or legal guardian who has legal custody of the student. If a parent is picking up a student during school time, he or she must be checked out of the office with a signature and may be asked to present photo identification upon request.

Student’s Responsibility

Students should come to school with the desire to learn. The school staff’s goal is to help children to succeed. However, the student must make personal effort to learn and participate in school. It is the student’s responsibility to cooperate with the teacher and to do the best that they can to learn. When students make a positive effort to learn, they find success.  Always try, cooperate with others, respect others, and manage yourself.
