URGENT -- KEEP an eye on the weather. Dear Parents, The weather is looking questionable at this point. If there is lightning that is nearby, we may have to call a severe weather dismissal. We will not call a severe weather dismissal for rain only. We will make the decision closer to our 3:30 dismissal time. PLEASE WATCH FOR A BLUE FLAG HANGING ON OUR FLAGPOLE--- this indicates a severe weather dismissal. We will also do our best to send out an email and post it on Facebook. During severe weather dismissal, we do not send students out and we do not send staff out on duty. You will park your vehicles in designated areas and come into the building to sign your children out AT THE CLASSROOMS once you feel the weather is safe enough for you to do so. Bus riders will wait in the gym until it is safe enough for us to take them to their buses. Walkers will wait in classrooms until they are picked up by a parent or approved pick up person. 4th grade modular students will wait in the CAFETERIA for parents to pick them up. If the weather clears, we will change status to REGULAR dismissal and send walkers home and students out to the pick-up lanes. THANKS for supporting us in our efforts to keep everyone safe! We appreciate it.

Hi Husky Moms and Dads -- Field Day is still on! If the rain picks up, we will offer alternate activities inside the gym during the grade level's scheduled enrichment time for those students who did not get to enjoy the outdoor events. Typically, we have a alternate day in the event of rain, but the weather forecast for the week is not promising for a sunny day.

Parents, This year Ridgeview Elementary School has been working hard to increase the access our students have to high interest books for home reading. In doing this, the goals are to increase: numbers of level appropriate books in our students’ home libraries, student enjoyment of and motivation for reading, and percentages of grade level proficient readers at our school. This is very exciting, and students have been happy to benefit from this initiative! Please know that books may be coming home from our "Book Cave" as well as from an organization called Literacy for All Children. These great books are for your children to keep and enjoy as new additions to their home library. Thank you for your continued partnership in the education of your children! Maura C.
