Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Red Hook Central School District shall be to develop in its students the knowledge, intellectual integrity, and social consciousness to prepare them to accept the obligations and opportunities found in a complex society. The District seeks to provide a challenging educational environment that fosters and rewards the values of respect, responsibility, honesty, integrity, and community service in all its members.
Reminder: School Days Make-Up Schedule
The 2014-15 school year calendar was created with five emergency closing days included before we would have to make up days. As of the closing on February 9, 2015, we had seven emergency closings.  
Therefore, the first make-up day is Monday, April 6, and school will be in session that day. The second make-up day is Friday, May 22, and school will be in session that day. Enjoy your spring break and we will see you back at school on Monday, April 6!
Kudos - NAMM Foundation Recognition!
