ATTENTION PARENTS: School Safety Plan Update
RVMS/RVHS Video             Reede Gray Video

Students,staff and visitor safety is Redwood Area School Districts number one priority and for that reason we are moving towards a goal of enhancing our school safety plan.We are implementing a program known as ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate). This protocol allows staff and students to make decisions to enhance their safety and survival based on information they have regarding a situation involving an active shooter or intruder in our building. Currently RASD is a Lockdown only and we feel the ALICE protocol will greatly empower our staff and students. The district staff have been trained in the ALICE protocol and the students at RVHS, RVMS and Reede Gray will be all be trained in the upcoming weeks (PowerPoint and video only, no scenario based training). Please take the time to watch the videos and learn more about the ALICE protocol. If you have any questions or concerns please contact School Resource Officer, Dana Woodford at or (507) 644-8462.
