Dear Ridge parents and community,
For safety reasons, if you park on the street, please go to the crosswalk with the crossing guard. There is NO walking through the Staff Parking Lot.
Also, please pack children lunches or order via Village Fresh. We are not allowed to accept any deliveries from outside vendors (pizza, bagels, etc.)
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 still 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.
There is still time to sign up for the After-School Play club on Wednesdays. See all the information here: Play Club Fall 2019.pdf
The RHS Girls Varsity Soccer Team is hosting the 8th Annual Girls Youth Clinic. See here for details: 2019 Youth Soccer Clinic - Girls varsity.pdf

Children who walk to school may enter their names in a drawing for an AMC movie theater gift certificate. Entry slips are located outside of the gym. One winner will be chosen on November 1st.
