Important information about RHS Attendance

RHS Attendance Facts

  • The RHS attendance goal is 95%, and our December 2018 attendance was 87%.

We can do better! A student is considered chronically absent if he or she misses just two days every month; that totals 18 missed days in the school year.

  • Did you know that even excused absences count against a student’s attendance record? Use breaks and summer vacation for appointments and vacations to support academic success.
  • Some absences are unavoidable due to health problems or other circumstances, but we also know that when students miss too much school— regardless of the reason – it can cause them to fall behind academically.
  • Please reach out to your school if you or someone you know could use support in getting to school on time and regularly- we can help. We miss our students when they are not here!

❄️ Winter Weather School Closure and Delay Information

With a little winter weather under our belts this year, and likely more to come, it’s a good time for a refresher on how Redmond School District handles inclement weather.

❄️ How Closure/Delay Decisions are Made ❄️

Decisions regarding inclement weather delays or school cancellations are made in the early morning. When a forecasted storm arrives overnight, members of the district team are up before 4:00 a.m., checking road conditions from Alfalfa to Terrebonne/Crooked River Ranch and Eagle Crest to Tumalo. They are also communicating with city and county road departments and other school districts in Central Oregon to determine if roads are safe for bus travel. The decision to cancel school for the day, or delay start times, must be made by 5:00 a.m. before busses begin their routes.

❄️ How Decisions are Communicated ❄️

Once the decision to delay and/or close has been made, that information is communicated to parents using the district’s automated phone system, on the district website:, Facebook and immediately through local media outlets.

We understand that decisions about school schedules and bus route changes have an impact on our families. We appreciate your patience during these situations. While we know that our students and families are best served when we are open, our main concern is the safety of our students and staff. If you feel that current weather conditions are unsafe, the district respects your decision to keep your student(s) home for the day. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

❄️ District’s Automated Phone System ❄️

Redmond School District uses an autodialer system that calls and texts the phone number you have on file at your child’s school in the event of inclement weather or emergency notifications. Please ensure that your profile is up to date at your student’s school.

As always, please call our district office at 541-923-5437 if you have any questions.

Justin Johnson and Mr. Winger present handcrafted cases to Medal of Honor recipient Bob Maxwell.

Robert “Bob” Maxwell is a former United States Army combat soldier and a recipient of the United States military’s highest decoration for valor—the Medal of Honor—for his heroism in France during World War II. He is the oldest of four living Medal of Honor recipients from that war.

Handcrafted display cases made by RHS construction students were presented to Bob Maxwell at the American legion Hall.

RHS student Justin Johnson created a presentation explaining how all of Bob’s medals were earned.
Thank you for your service!
