Focused Parent-Teacher Conferences-March 4th-4:00-6:30 PM

Parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for March 4th either via telephone or virtual. The classroom teachers have looked at all of the winter assessment scores and will “invite” parents to have deeper discussions on their student’s current performance. If your child has been meeting/exceeding grade-level expectations during the winter assessments (academically and behaviorally) there will not be a need for a conference. If you do not receive an invite but have concerns, please email your child’s teacher. We appreciate your continued support and involvement in your child’s educational success.

Important calls from Airport Schools (cancellations, delays, etc...) are now made with School Messenger. We no longer use the Honeywell application. The number that will appear is usually identified as spam and appears as 555-5555. Even if a phone identifies it as spam it will leave a message. We will also be adding a text and an email. All this information is pulled from Powerschool for parents. If you did not receive a call please contact the building to make sure the correct information is in Powerschool. We will also continue to use social media and our web page for announcements.

Please do your part in helping to keep Ritter healthy!

Please make yourself aware and watch for any signs of common diseases. Remind your students to wash their hands, catch their cough, wear their mask, etc. to help prevent the spread of disease and protect your children.


We also ask that if a student has shown symptoms of illness such as fever or flu please keep them home for an additional 24 hours just to be safe and contact the office.

It's getting colder outside!

The weather is starting to get cooler. The kids go outside for at least 20 minutes at lunch recess. As long as it is above10 degrees they will be outside (unless raining). Please make sure they have the appropriate clothing to be outside. They should have Coats, Hats, maybe even gloves. If the students want to play in the snow they have to wear boots and can also wear snow pants.
