Ridgeview Families,

Thank you for sharing your students with us this year! It has been wonderful watching them grow as students and we look forward to seeing what they will do in the future. This year has been unique, challenging and amazing. We want to wish everyone a restful, relaxing, rejuvenating and safe summer. On a personal note, I want to thank you for helping me navigate my first year as Principal at Ridgeview. See you in the fall!


Stay tuned for Academic Award videos coming soon through Infinite Campus, Talking Points and on Social Media.

From the Nurse

  • If your child is absent from school for reasons due to Covid-19, please be sure to call the School Nurse as soon as possible. This is very important when recording absences and tracking Covid-19 cases in the school building.


PROPER PROTOCOL IF YOUR STUDENT FEELS ILL AT SCHOOL

  1. Student informs teacher he/she does not feel well.
  2. Teacher calls the clinic to ensure the staff is available to see the student.
  3. Student goes to clinic and gets checked out.
  4. If necessary, the clinic staff calls home to have student picked up.
  5. Parent comes to main door with cell phone (to complete virtual sign-out form) and driver's license.
  6. Clinic staff escorts student out to parent and provides follow up information.


IF YOUR STUDENT EMAILS, TEXTS, OR USES A SMART WATCH TO CONTACT YOU ASKING TO BE PICKED UP, PLEASE REMIND THEM OF THIS PROTOCOL. We need to follow this procedure to ensure all safety measures from the Health Department are being followed.

PTO News

PTO is looking for new officers

The PTO is currently looking for new officers for next school year. We have President, Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable positions available. If you are interested or know someone who may be coming up from the middle school that is interested, please feel free to contact Jennifer Sander jennsanderpto@gmail.com for more information.

Odds and Ends

JUST SOME REMINDERS:


  • Students should leave airpods/beats or other bluetooth devices such as those at home.

  • Students should carry a spare mask in their bag. We have extras if the mask gets soiled as well.

  • Students are reminded to turn cell phones off during the day and keep them in a safe place if they need to bring them to school. The district policy for K-8th grade is to have them off during school hours. We appreciate your support in this. If you need to reach your student, please contact the main office and we will have them come down to the office to call you.

  • Students should bring a refillable water bottle to school as our water fountain mouth pieces have been turned off. We have bottle filling stations that they may use throughout the day. Students may also purchase a bottle of water through our vending machines for $1.25.
