If the bulletin does not appear in your email please contact us at RedmondHighSchool@lwsd.org. You can also receive weekly information directly from the PTSA by signing up for their Mustang Weekly newsletter.
COUNSELING: Your last name determines your counselor. Counselors will be assigned no later than the first day of classes. Caseloads may shift for this school year. Please visit the Counseling section of the Redmond High School website for counselor e-mail addresses, additional information and helpful resources. Individual appointments for students and families will begin in mid-September when the appointment book is available.
Our new school hours are 7:30 a.m. – 2:20 p.m. (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday) and 7:30 – 12:50 on Wednesdays. This year we are moving to a 7 period day. You can access our Daily Schedule along with any special bell schedules on the Daily Schedule page of our website.
EMERGENCY/CONTACT INFORMATION: Beginning in August you can update your student’s email address, phone number, emergency contacts and address online. To do this log onto Parent Access and click on Skyward Family Access. Click your student’s name and verify your student’s information. Make any changes necessary and click submit. (If you are changing your student’s address, please email email@example.com with scanned proof of your new address (e.g. a utility bill). Without that proof, your address will not be changed.) If you don’t have a Parent Access account, now is a good time to set one up. Just go to the Parent Access page on the district website for more information.
HEALTH CONCERNS: Students with any life threatening medical condition (seizures, asthma, cardiac condition, diabetes, allergy requiring an Epipen, or other significant medical condition) are required to have an Individual Health Plan (IHP), a signed Authorization to Administer Medication form for each medication, and their emergency rescue medications at school before the first day of school. If these are not received, the guardian will be called by the principal to pick up their student immediately. These forms and more information can be found on the LWSD website.
Questions? Contact our nurse at firstname.lastname@example.org. RN will return to school on 8/27/18.
HIGH SCHOOL AND BEYOND PLAN: Did you know that completion of the High School and Beyond Plan is a graduation requirement?! The RHS counselors will be presenting High School and Beyond Plan lessons and activities to students during their homeroom classes. Then, counselors will meet with students individually for a progress and reflection meeting. We are excited to hear about our Mustangs’ future plans!
IMMUNIZATIONS: Students are required to be in compliance with immunization requirements at the start of each school year. Immunization requirements are listed on the Department of Health website. Please check with your student’s health care provider to verify your student meets the state immunization requirements.
MEDICATIONS AT SCHOOL: If a student requires any prescription or non-prescription medication while at school, an Authorization to Administer Medication form is required for each medication. The form must be signed by both the guardian and the Health Care Provider AND the orders must match the medication exactly. All medications must be brought to the school by the guardian. At the end of the year, the guardian needs to pick up the medication. Emergency rescue medications will not be released until the end of the last day of school. Any medications not picked up at the end of the school year will be destroyed.
OFF-CAMPUS PASSES: The Off-Campus Pass ONLY applies to leaving campus during lunch. These passes are only available to juniors and seniors who have no fines and no discipline issues. Juniors and seniors may print an Off-Campus Application from our website or pick one up in the main office.
PARENT ACCESS: Stay informed and involved in your student’s education through Parent Access. This is the way you can access your student’s classroom and gradebook information, view their attendance, add money to their lunch account, pay their class fees/fines and sign up to volunteer. Just go to the Parent Access page on the district website for more information and to register.
