Extra Practice

Please remember that your child may log in to Classlink through redoakisd.org. This will give access to our online resources for all subjects.

Their Classlink username is their lunch number

Their password is their lunch number-initials

They are also able to login to Reflex by going to explorelearning.com - typing in allison.gaines@redoakisd.org - and they should know their 4 character password. If not, they can get it from their math notebooks and bring it home.

Bathroom and Water Breaks

In an effort to keep our students on task and to keep everyone safe, we are now going to scheduled group bathroom and water breaks. Students will still have access to the nurse in an emergency. Your student can absolutely bring a water bottle to school so they are able to quench their thirst when needed but they are only allowed to take restroom breaks with their classes.
