Falcon Ridge Family Updates

November 29, 2021

News and Tidbits

Hello Families,


We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving break with your families!


Students, it's time to get out your markers, crayons, and paints because the yearbook cover contest has begun! If you are interested, be sure to get an official entry paper from the front office and submit by December 3rd.


Parents, do you need to contact your student during the school day? The front office can help. The Falcon Ridge Student Handbook outlines the procedure for student cellphone use and storage. Students are asked to keep their cellphones and other electronics in their backpacks during the school day. Thanks for helping us keep our learning environment safe and focused.


Please remember to complete the Intent to Enroll form for the front office.


Have a fantastic week!


Sincerely,

Dr. Jorgensen

Student Cell Phone Protocol

ELECTRONIC DEVICES

Our goal is to provide an academic environment free of distractions being conducive to learning and a social environment that supports the development of kind and respectful relationships. Use of any electronic devices such as cell phones, game boys, MP3 players, and CD players during any time of the school day is in conflict with both of these goals. If any of these devices are brought to school, including cell phones, they must be turned off and in backpack at all times. Any student using their phone or any electronic device other than before or after school will have them confiscated. The student’s parents will be responsible for coming to the school and picking them up.
