Daily Health Screening at School:

Each day as students and staff arrive on campus for orientation or classes, they must complete a daily health screening.

Students arriving after that time must receive their health screening in the AR office. Students are assigned a designated location for health screening and must practice physical distancing while waiting for their turn.

Books required for classes can be found on the CR Bookstore website (https://www.redwoods.edu/student-services/home/bookstore) and/or on your class syllabus. Do not worry if you cannot meet this deadline, as some professors may not have posted this information yet. Book lists must be turned into the AR Attendance Office so that your required textbooks can be purchased for you. Please note that you must turn in your spring/summer materials before we can order your fall textbooks. The CR Book List Form can be found here: http://bit.ly/2aA1aMp or on the AR web site ar.fuhsdistrict.org under the Students tab. Is this your first semester getting books for a CR class? Here is an instructional video on how to find the materials you need: https://youtu.be/DwBc5Tmb0UQ

-The AR Office sells monthly bus passes from Humboldt Transit Authority at a discounted rate for students. You can purchase 31 Day Redwood Transit passes for $45 and 31 Day Southern Humboldt Bus Passes for $82 with cash or check. 

 

CR News-
CR Parking Permits can be purchased online at mycampuspermit.com/redwoods. You will need to login using your CR email address and password and input credit card information. You will then be able to print out a temporary parking permit and your official permit will be mailed to you. If you don’t have a debit or credit card, you can take cash to CR’s Business Office and pay for your parking pass there. Day passes can be purchased for $2 from any one of the parking permit dispensers around campus. If you are simply dropping off or picking up your student, and will not be leaving your vehicle unattended, then a parking permit is not necessary.   

 

Google Chromebooks Insurance

Insurance policies can be purchased for the chromebooks at the AR attendance office. Purchasing insurance is highly encouraged, as it will save you money in the event that accidental damage to the chromebook occurs. It is suggested that all students buy a protective case for their chromebook to avoid damaging them. Carrying your chromebook in a backpack along with other books and no protective casing often results in a cracked screen. Chargers are considered accessories and therefore not covered by insurance, so students will be held financially responsible in the event that they damage their chromebook charger. Replacement chargers can be purchased in the AR Office for $20. Policies are $27 for 1 year of coverage with a $0 deductible. If you would like to purchase insurance online, you can do so at the following link: https://gpo.worthavegroup.com/gpo/academyredwoods
