Principal's Message

Dear Ride Family,

We were excited to see so many kids return to in person school on Tuesday this week. We know it can be a very difficult decision for your family and I would like for you to know that we are doing everything we can to practice safe school. We will continue to be responsible and encourage each other to wear the masks, keep a distance and always be mindful of other's space while at school.

We were so fortunate to have the Rotary Club provide lunch for the entire staff yesterday. It was amazing! Everything was prepared and individually packaged by the Palmer Course. Thank you so much for the support from our community and the way people continue to reach out and assist our education friends. We appreciate you as well.

Great News! We have scheduled OUTDOOR school photos for November 6th. The individual photos will be taken by a professional photographer who specializes in outside pictures. He will either use the gazebo and/or outdoor foliage as a background. Classes will come outside one at a time and wait in a safe manner. Remote students will be given a time frame when they will be able to drive up and take a picture (on school grounds) with out entering the building. More information is coming soon.

Hope you enjoy this nice cool weather and beautiful weekend,

Megan Burnham

A special Thank you to HEB Creekside for providing snacks and gift cards for our PreK Program
