At what temperature do the students stay inside for recess?
We keep our students inside for recess if the windchill is zero or below.

Do I need to call the office if my child will be absent from school?
We would like you to call our office at (616) 696-7330 if your child will be absent from school for any reason. Always knowing that our students are with their parents ensures us that they are safe.

Can my child bring medication to school?
School policy prohibits any medication be dispersed at school without a medication form signed by both parent and physician.  This includes over the counter medications.

Is Red Hawk Elementary a closed or open campus?
Red Hawk Elementary is a closed campus. For the purpose of safety, students are not allowed to leave the school grounds at any time during the school day without written permission from their parents and approval by the administration. Students may be released only to persons (who are authorized by parent/guardian) listed on the emergency data card. NOTE: Students who arrive at school and then leave school property without permission from parents and school authorities will be considered unexcused and skipping.


Red Hawk Elementary School will develop all students to become educated, self confident, responsible citizens in a changing world.
