Book Fair

Volunteers are needed to set up, run the register during shopping hours, and teardown. Shifts are available Tuesday December 6 - Friday December 9. Sign up here.

Winter Gear

If you have extra preschool-sized gently used snow pants, winter boots, or winter jackets at home please consider donating them to Fox Ridge. We would then send them home with students in need. Outdoor play continues through the cold months, weather permitting, and we are working to ensure all our students have clothes appropriate for the cold.

This week’s first snow is a great reminder to make sure the contact information you’ve provided the District is up-to-date. We want to ensure you’re getting timely alerts on inclement weather operations and other important notifications. Please take a moment to do the following:

View Notification Preferences/Enable Text Messages
District 303 will send notifications to families through the ParentLink system by text message, phone call and email based on your settings. Parents/guardians can view and edit their contact settings through the Home Access Center.
To receive timely emergency communications, we strongly encourage families to enable text notifications. For most people, this is the fastest way to receive and view important messages. Here’s how:

  • From the HAC main menu, select the “registration” tab to view your contact settings
  • Select the “edit” button to change your contact settings
  • To enable text message notifications, enter your cell phone number in the SMS/text message field
  • Select the “save” button
Users can only update their child(ren) and personal contact information. You will not be able to make changes to another parent/guardian's contact information. For updates to emergency contact people, please reach out to the school directly.
