Good Afternoon, I wanted to make you aware our fire alarm activated again today at 10:47 a.m. The system was inadvertently triggered as routine work (on the system) was being conducted, and is unrelated to yesterday's alarm. It was a true false alarm. All students and staff exited the building quickly and safely. The fire department did respond quickly, but were not needed. Students and staff were cleared to re-enter the building at 10:57 a.m. Thank you for your support of Ridgeview Schools! Mr. Young

Back to School Health Reminder!
Students, Parents, and Staff - The Ridgeview Board of Education voted tonight and approved changes to the Return to Ridgeview plan. The most significant change is masks are required for all students, staff, and visitors while they are in the building. This is change goes into effect immediately. The board will continue to revisit the issue at their monthly meetings and make changes as necessary. There are other changes to the plan impacting quarantine times. These changes were also approved. The revised plan will be posted tomorrow (Wednesday). Thank you for your patience as we continue to navigate these challenging times. Mr. Young
School starts tomorrow! This means buses will be out and about on the roads. Take a look at the picture so you know the proper protocol when you see a bus with their flashing lights activated. If the bus has activated the yellow lights - Slow Down and Be Ready to Stop! Students may be running to the bus, prior to it stopping. Always stop if the red lights are flashing!
Good Evening! Bus route information is now posted in Family Access. Thank you for your patience, as we had to re-work many of our routes. Please keep in mind the following points: 1. We still have students registering for school. This may impact routes. We will run an update each evening (over the next couple of days) and repost to Family Access. 2. As we get into the week and start running the routes, these times may fluctuate some. 3. Make sure the pick-up and drop-off location is correct. 4. Pre-K routes have not been loaded. If you have questions, or need to make changes, please contact the District Office or email firstname.lastname@example.org with the requested change. Thank you again for your patience! Mr. Young
Good Evening! An "All Call" to Parents and Staff was recently sent out at 4:30PM today (Friday). We are utilizing a new notification system, so the number the call came from maybe different than past calls(ex. Little Rock, AR). If you are a parent or staff member, and you did not receive a call, please contact the District Office to ensure we have your information correct. The information from the call can also be seen in Family Access. Have a great weekend! Mr. Young

The 2020-2021 school year has come to a close and I want to say thank you to all of our students, parents, faculty, staff, and communities. By working together we were able to provide a successful in-person learning experience for our students. The classrooms were alive with kids ready to learn. The courts, fields, and track were bustling with activity and noise. The band played, voices sang, clubs met, and friends were together. What an awesome thing to see! Our students persevered and succeeded in the face of uncertainty. They showed us all how to be resilient and hopeful. Our parents showed unending support, understanding and flexibility. Our teachers gave their all, and then gave some more. They faced seemingly endless obstacles, while continuing to guide, support, and care for each and every student. Our support staff worked harder than ever to ensure that everyone and everything was expertly taken care of. Our communities rallied around our schools and everyone exemplified MUSTANG PRIDE! We faced the challenges together and now we’re stronger than ever. I’m extremely proud and grateful to be a part of this district. I wish everyone a great (and much needed) summer break! Erik Young Superintendent #MustangPride
