Drill Practice

Students in both cohorts will be practicing our emergency drills on Monday and Tuesday (April 5th and 6th) during our morning AVID class. We will be practicing lockdown and lockout drills along with an earthquake and fire drill. The following poster is up in every classroom and what we use to remind students what action to take in case of an emergency.

State Testing Opt-Out

Huskies,

The state of Oregon has submitted a waiver for state testing in Oregon. We have not heard a response from the Department of Education yet, so we are moving forward with our planning. If you would like to OPT OUT of state testing, please fill out the waiver and email it to megan.storey@redmondschools.org OR have your student return it to the main office.
