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
physically healthy, we also want to make sure we are taking care of our mental and
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.

COVID-19: An important announcement

Concern about COVID-19 (coronavirus) has created a rapidly evolving environment where changes are being made quickly in the interest of public health.

Starting Monday, March 16, Henrico County Public Schools will be closed for students for two full weeks of school (through Friday, March 27). We will continue to assess the situation, and decide later if we need to extend this period of closure.

We realize this creates many questions about how students will continue their learning. We have a thorough plan in place, and detailed information about student learning will be communicated in a separate message.

Our teachers and staff will use Monday, March 16, to continue their preparations. “Virtual learning” experiences (digital and non-digital) will be available to students of all grade levels starting on Tuesday, March 17.

During this unprecedented experience, we will continue to do everything possible to ensure the health and safety of our community. The HCPS Facilities and Pupil Transportation departments will conduct additional cleaning of school buildings and buses, and continue to assess the best cleaning practices.

Additionally, for many of our students, the meals provided at our schools are a crucial part of their daily nutrition. Additional plans are being made to address this vital need across the Henrico Community.

Please know that this is not a decision that we make lightly. We realize that any change to educational schedules is disruptive and inconvenient. However, our priority must always be the health and safety of our students, staff members and community.

Again, more details about student learning will be forthcoming in separate communications. Visit the “COVID-19” page on our website for full information from HCPS.
