Red River Newsletter

August 2018

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Our monthly newsletter is intended to serve as a communication link, providing you with information on upcoming events and news about what is happening at Red River High School. During the school year, parents will be emailed a copy of the newsletter on the first of the month. In addition to the email, the newsletter will also be posted on the Red River High School website’s home page. Please save this newsletter for future reference as it contains information that you may find helpful throughout the school year.

As we prepare for the start of the school year, all our ninth graders and their parents/guardians have conferences scheduled with their counselor starting July 30. If you have not received a scheduled appointment time, please call Jill LaMoine at 746-2205 ext. 6810, and she will schedule your conference.

Again this year registration will be a two-part process as the Grand Forks School District continues the transition to online registration. During the first week in August, you will receive an email with attached documents providing you with the necessary information for registration. The online registration portion allows parents/guardians to update and verify their student(s) demographic and health information using the Parent Portal in PowerSchool. Please note the online portion of registration must be completed prior to students picking up their final schedule.

The second part of the registration process will take place at Red River High School on the dates and times listed below. During this portion, students will receive their final class schedule, locker assignment, can put money in their lunch accounts, and purchase activity passes using cash or check. If paying by check, separate checks will need to be written for lunch accounts and activity passes. All checks should be made payable to Grand Forks Public Schools.
