• How do I edit or verify my child's enrollment?

    Posted by:

    Online Registration (OLR)/ParentVue: This is our process to enroll/register new students and for our existing families to verify and edit their file information. To activate your ParentVue account; go under the For Families tab on the district’s web site www.trf.k12.mn.us click on ParentVue and follow the prompts. This page will allow you to view and make changes on your student’s profile, it is also how you will schedule your Parent/Teacher conferences. We understand that this is fairly new and confusing, we are all learning together. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

  • What if I have to change transportation for my child and they need a bus pass?

    Posted by:

    Challenger Elementary School is no longer writing bus passes. School transportation is responsible for getting our kids home or to daycare after school (not to a friend’s house, a birthday party, or to any address not provided to the school at the start of the year). If your student will not be riding his/her scheduled bus please call the transportation dept at 681-7077, contact the school if your child will be picked up rather than riding the bus after school; we also need to know who will be picking up your child. If your child is normally picked up after school but someone different will be picking them up; we need your written authorization before we can let them go with someone different. All changes must be​ ​received by 1:30 p.m.​ It is for the safety and well-being of your kids! They get confused and anxious when their plans change often and last minute.

  • How do I drop my student off at the school with the new roundabout & parking lot?

    Posted by:

    Due to the new roundabout there will be only one (1) entrance into our parking lot and one (1) exit out of our parking lot. You will notice a barricade has been put in place as you enter the parking lot. You will have the choice to stay to the right to drop and go, or you can go to the left to park and walk to the building. Parents can walk their kids to the entrance and we will have staff there to meet the students and walk them to their classroom, or to the cafe’ for breakfast.

  • If I am picking up my child where should I meet them?

    Posted by:

    We ask that you arrive at 2:45 pm and meet them outside in front of the school. 

    ​If a student needs to leave early for any reason they will be held in the office until the parent/guardian calls to notify the office that they are out front to pick up the child. The student will then be sent out or brought out to the waiting vehicle​.​

  • May I park and wait for my child along the curb?

    Posted by:

    YOU CANNOT PARK​ along the curb. The loop to the main entrance was/is designed as a DROP & GO lane so the walk from the parking lot is safer for everyone. Law enforcement will monitor this NO PARKING red zone and ticket cars that are unattended. The ticket cost is $100.00 as posted on the signs.
