Student Materials Pick Up

We look forward to seeing you when you come to pick up your child’s belongings.  This will be done in a “drive-through” matter.  Please stay in your car and follow the pick up line in the parking lot.  Library and other Ridge books may be returned at this time.

Time to Return Your Library Books!

We hope you enjoyed your library books during the last few weeks!  Please return them when you come to Ridge to pick up your belongings June 8th – 11th.  We would be grateful if you would put your books in a plastic bag.  In case you are wondering how many books to look for, most students checked out 5 books on the last day of school.

Dear Ridge Families:
We know there is much uncertainty right now, but we believe it is important for all of us to
take care of ourselves and our families. While we are away to ensure we are staying

emotional health. During this time, we understand many different feelings and thoughts can
arise. We want to provide resources to help support you and your families while we are
navigating this period away from Ridge Elem. Here are a few links to resources on how to talk to our students about the Coronavirus, how to deal with fear and anxiety, mindfulness
strategies, and coping skills.
