Falcon Ridge Family Updates

November 8, 2021

News and Tidbits

Hello Families,

We hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Our character trait for November is gratitude, which means, "the quality of being thankful, readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness." Gratitude turns what we already have into enough. I am grateful for the families, students, and staff at Falcon Ridge Charter School!

Important Bus Information

As you know, there is a state-wide shortage of bus drivers and Falcon Ridge is no different. We are short one bus driver this year and have consolidated the four routes into three.

In the event that one of our three drivers needs to be out, we will need to cancel a route for that day. If we need to cancel a bus, you will receive a text and/or email as soon as we receive notification from the bus company. Please be prepared to make other arrangements if this occurs. If the bus driver is sick, the notice may come as late as the school morning.

Please have an emergency contact available who can transport your children if you are unavailable.
