If there will be a dismissal change, please fill out the BLUE Dismissal Sheet and send it in with your child. If you need to make an unplanned change, please call the office by 1:00 p.m. so the office can make the necessary adjustments.

No Electronic Devices:

Please remember that the school is NOT responsible for phones, watches, and other electronic devices that students bring to school that are not supplied by the school. We discourage students from having personal devices at school and on their person during the school day.   We have phones in the office if your child needs to call home for any reason during the school day. If you need your child to have a phone for after school situations, please make sure they leave it with the teacher.  Lockers do not have locks on them.

Please remember to have your child dress appropriately for the weather. We do have outdoor recess when the temperature/weather allows (if the feel like is 20 degrees or warmer). Please send your child with coats, hats, mittens/gloves, boots, etc. for the colder temperatures.

Ridge Community Pantry Box:

Ridge PTA has built and installed a Community Pantry Box back in May 2020.
The box is located at Ridge, behind the building near the playground.
If you have groceries or toiletries to donate, please leave them in the pantry box.
If you are in need of groceries or toiletries, please take what you need and leave the rest for another family.
We are grateful for our PTA to provide a service to help others in need.
