School Year Schedules


Due to building reorganizing, we have a limited number of lockers to offer to students. Therefore they will be distributed on a first come first serve basis. If your student is in need of a locker, please have them see Hannah in the main office during the first week back to school. *Please note that music lockers are offered during the first days of band/orchestra for student instruments.

School Supplies

Red River High School does not have a specific school supply list. Students should have a backpack to carry their belongings, paper, writing utensils, calculators, etc. Teachers might ask students to purchase some supplies for their specific class through the first few weeks.
