Change to your student's end of day dismissal plan?

If you need to make a change to your student's dismissal plan, please contact the office by noon on the day of the change.  The office number is 763-792-5300, or you may email the office at with the dismissal change.  Changes made after 3 pm are very difficult to communicate to the teacher since we try to avoid interrupting classes during instructional time.  

What happens if a school bus is running late?

New this year:  Rehbein Transportation will send out a message to parents when a bus is running late by 15 minutes or more.

Reminder:  Changes to the Box Tops Program 

The Box Tops program is changing from "clip it and turn in" to a new mobile app based format where you scan the receipt for credit (within 14 days of purchase).  

How does the new program work?

Instead of clipping, all Box Tops will be earned digitally via receipt scan. 

  • You’ll now download the new and improved, user-friendly Box Tops app
  • Register and select our school
  • Scan an eligible receipt containing Box Tops products.  You’ll earn 10 cents for each Box Tops product purchased plus extra earnings for any Bonus Box Tops opportunities. 

The app will automatically add Box Tops to your school’s earnings online, giving visibility to see how you are supporting your school in real-time. 

**You may continue to turn in clipped Box Tops to our school**
