Dear Ridge parents and community,
Tomorrow is Ridge PHOTO DAY.

Remember, the most important thing for your child to wear is a smile!
Attention Fourth Grade Parents: Recorders will be ordered THIS FRIDAY, September 27th. Any fourth grader who chooses to purchase one from Ridge must do so this week as the order will be placed on Friday afternoon. Thank you!
October Lunch Ordering will open this week – please make sure to order lunch now so you don’t miss a day!
HEALTH OFFICE NOTES:
LICE…now that we are back in school, just a reminder to check your child’s head daily for lice. Visit the Health page on our website for helpful instructions. If your child does have lice, they need to be treated and cleared by the nurse before they can return to school. We do not do mass head checks for lice – parents are responsible for checking their own children. Thank you.
STREP: Strep throat is also going around Ridge. If your child complains of a sore throat and/or stomach ache, with or without fever, please have your child checked by a physician.
Call for Art Room Volunteers!
Do you love art? Or would you just like to spend some quality time helping out in your child’s classroom? Then please volunteer to be an art room helper! Commitment is 2x per month, just during the time of your child’s class. We need 4 volunteers per class. Once sign-ups are full, we’ll send you your schedule. Thank you! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050C45AAAF29A3FB6-ridge
