Ridgeview Junior High IS EPIC

July 23, 2021

From The Principal's Pen

Hello Families!


As we get closer to our Welcome Days where students will be able to pick up their schedule, please remember that there are forms that need to be completed before students can receive their schedules.


Please visit the PLSD back to School webpage and follow steps to complete the enrollment forms in Infinite Campus.


Please make sure that your student's updated vaccination/immunizations are on file with the school, specifically 7th grade as there is a required immunization, see the webpage Step 12 under immunizations for a link to the required immunizations. You may drop your immunization copy off at the office from 8-2 Monday-Friday or email our nurse, Marcia Stewart, at Marcia_Stewart@plsd.us.


*Nationwide Children's Hospital will be holding a vaccination/immunization clinic at Harmon MS 8/5 and 8/6 from 9 AM until 2 PM. See Links below.


Junior High classroom fees for the 2021-2022 school year will be posted around the beginning of October with the exception of the Chromebook insurance fee. That will be posted early on and does have a deadline to be paid in order to have the insurance. Please check Infinite Campus for any fees from previous school years; those can be paid online through Infinite Campus.


If you cannot make the schedule pick up welcome days do not worry. You may contact the office to come in and pick up the schedule. You will not, however, be able to walk the building at that time.


Aug 12th from 5-7PM we will have our open house. It is highly suggested that if you can carpool you do so as we have limited parking at Ridgeview. Students will be able to walk their schedule, practice opening their lockers, and learning the one way hallway traffic flow to get from class to class. This is a meet and greet with our staff however, some staff members travel from building to building and may not be available that evening, this could include French, German, Band, Orchestra and Theater.


GO TIGERS!!
