Help us ensure safety for everyone during drop off and pick up. We ask that each and every adult coming to Fox RIdge ALWAYS use the crosswalk during our arrival and dismissal procedures. Keeping the bus lane clear is essential for our drivers. It is also for your own safety-- there are danger zones surrounding buses. Let’s keep each other safe and use the crosswalk!

A message from our Social Work Department
In D303, we value the opportunity to provide a community of care and support to our families, especially those faced with financial hardship.
If your family is currently experiencing a significant financial need, our community partnerships have several supports available for families including: school clothes/shoes, winter coats/accessories, school supplies, toiletries, holiday meals, and/or holiday gifts. If you would like to be considered for any of these supports, please complete the Family Resource Form by September 1, 2023.
