Happy NEW Year and New Schedule!

The ECC End of the Day Schedule will be changing beginning January 13th. We will continue to begin school at 8:15. End of day pick up will be at 3:00 p.m. Students who ride the bus will still arrive home at the same time.

Bus 17 End of Day Change

Due to our new end of the day dismissal time, Bus 17 students will be arriving home much earlier than last semester. Bus 17 ECC and LE students will arrive home at approximately 3:15 p.m. They will arrive home BEFORE the Upper, Middle and High School students. We are bringing this to your attention as it may impact your child's supervision. This change will begin on Monday, Jan. 13th.

We are Ridgy Ready!

Have you heard your student using the term "Ridgy Ready?" This is the term we use to manage behavior in a positive way. We are Ridgy Ready at the ECC by being : Safe, Responsible and Respectful. We have Ridgy Ready Expectations for every place at our school including: classrooms, restrooms, hallways, playground, cafeteria, emergency situations, bus. When students show that they are Ridgy Ready, they earn Ridgy Ready tickets that go in the prize buckets in the main hall. Student tickets from each homeroom class are drawn each day on Channel 97 for prizes.
