RIDGEVIEW STEM JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL

August 6, 2021

From The Principal's Pen

Hello Ridgeview Families!


With Welcome Days past us, we are looking ahead to our Open House. It was great to see so many families over the 4 sessions on Wednesday and Thursday. Thank you to all families for your patience as we navigated through having so many of you back in the building! If you were unable to stop by or still had items needing to be completed, students will be able to walk their schedule at our Open House on Thursday Aug 12th from 5-7PM.


Just a reminder the Annual Updating of forms in Infinite Campus is vital so that we have the correct information for your student. When you log into IC make sure to check all the information and click on all highlighted people to check their information as well. It will not let you sign the document until all areas are checked. Just a reminder that the Device Insurance Fee is being posted to your accounts and that needs to be paid by Sept 24th to have insurance coverage for your student's Chromebook!


Open House on Thursday Aug 12th will be a time for students to introduce themselves to their teachers, walk their schedule and practice opening their locker. There is limited parking so if you are comfortable carpooling, it would help. When coming to Open House on the 12th we will have extra copies of maps by the entrances and you will want to follow the one way hallways while navigating the school. Ridgeview has utilized the one way hallway system for 6 years because of the amount of students in the building, it will be good practice for the students to develop the pattern in which they will walk to their classes.


This week would be a good time to start practicing bedtime and wake up routines. Many of the Junior High students, if riding a bus, will be catching their bus around 6:30AM! Please go to the PLSD Back to School information webpage to log in to find out your bus information.


If your student is a walker or you plan to drop them off. The Cafeteria doors open at 6:45AM for students to come in and sit until 7:00AM when they can go to their locker and on to class. Please make sure to check out the drop off video, pull all the way forward and unload in the fire zone, please do not stop early or wait to drop off at the door. There has been a change that there are no left turns out of the parking lot during the hours of 6:30 AM until 7:30 AM, we are hoping that all of these changes will help with our morning traffic flow.


Again students need to be in their PAW time by 7:15 AM, this is the official start of the school day. Staff will be helping students find their way around the building and opening their locker. Remember the first day of school is Aug 16th! We hope to see you at Open House on August 12th!


**Please make sure that your student's updated vaccination/immunizations are on file with the school, specifically 7th grade as there is a required immunization, see the webpage Step 12 under immunizations for a link to the required immunizations. You may drop your immunization copy off at the office from 8-2 Monday-Friday or email our nurse, Marcia Stewart, at Marcia_Stewart@plsd.us.
