2017-2018 School Registration/School Start Information

Greetings from the Red Oak Community School District.  We are filled with excitement as we prepare for the upcoming school year.  Mr. Messinger, Superintendent,  would first like to thank everyone for their continued support of the Red Oak Community School District.  With the successful election on June 27, 2017 we will be moving toward fewer campuses.  This means in the fall of 2019 the Red Oak Middle School building will no longer be used by the District.  For the 17-18 and 18-19 school years the plan is to use the same grade configuration in our buildings.  We will be providing updates on the progress of our facilities work and regular communication of our important news and dates.

For our current school year fall activities, registration, and the first day of school are just around the corner.  As always, there are a few things which need to be taken care of to move right back into the school routine: registration, school meal applications, sports physicals, and scheduling classes. 

Registration day is the best way to take care of all the necessary items.  Please plan to come to the Red Oak High School gymnasium on Tuesday, August 15, 2017 between the hours of 10:00 am and 7:00 pm.  You will be able to complete all the necessary tasks to get your son / daughter back to school. 

On Registration Day, August 15, all school principals, counselors, and needed resource staff will be present and ready to assist you to help your new school year begin smoothly. For those district patrons who plan to access any of the Early Childhood Programs (Kaleidoscope, Right Start and Early Childhood Model Students), staff members will be available to help. Several community groups will provide information tables during the Registration Day activity.

For those who wish to consider our special program for free and/or reduced price lunches, please click this link 17.18 Lunch Application. Having these filled in and completed prior to Registration Day is very helpful. Before Registration Day you may drop off your forms at the District Administrative Center, Technology Center Building, Red Oak High Campus, anytime from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm. Otherwise, have them completed and bring with you to Registration on August 15.

As we enter the month of August, we are excited about seeing students back in the buildings and activities under way.  It is sure to be an exciting year with countless successes and a few challenges.  Please get involved in your students’ education.  Attend conferences and school functions.  Ask them each day what they learned.  Sit with them while they do their homework.  And make sure to communicate with the schools if you have any questions.

The first day of school for all Red Oak students in grades kindergarten through twelve will be Wednesday, August 23, with a two-hour early dismissal.

Enjoy the rest of the summer and get ready for August 23, 2017.
