RIDGECREST ROAR Mar. 22, 2020
Hello Ridgecrest Families,
Wow, what a week! I decided to send a Ridgecrest Roar to provide some normalcy. I want to thank the Ridgecrest community for your patience and kind words as we work through this new normal. The teachers, staff, and I are missing the students and we are hoping to have them back in school before too long. We want you to know we care about each of you. If you are needing support, please reach out to your teacher or myself. We want to make sure our students are families have all of their needs met.
On Monday I plan to start a daily Facebook Live session. It will be later in the afternoon each day. Please join the Ridgecrest Elementary Facebook page and stay tuned. I will be reading stories, taking school tours, and doing other fun activities.
It looks like we may be going to online teaching starting the week of March 30th. We have not received the official word, but it appears we are heading down this road. On Monday, March 22, (tomorrow), we will be checking out Chromebooks to students in need of technology. If your student needs a Chromebook, please email your teacher. The teachers are making a list of students that need technology. We will be at the school from 8:00-3:00 checking Chromebooks out. Originally, we were only checking one out per family. We feel we have enough to check more than one out per family if that will help access online learning. If you want to come check out another, please just email your teacher and we will have one ready.
Starting Tuesday, the office will be closed to patrons. Mrs. Hille and I will be answering phone calls. If you need anything, please call the school at 801-826-9250. We will meet with parents by appointment only.
This week is the Utah School Spirit Week. Utah School Spirit Week.docx
We have all made it through our first week of school dismissal. It is now time for Utah schools to show our Utah School Spirit. Please join CSD schools and me in Utah School Spirit Week.
Take a picture each day and send it to your teachers or post it on Dojo.

Attached is a video that you may want to share with your children about Social Distancing.
I have also attached a link to a list of activities to do with your children.
Until we have further clarification, we will be postponing the events below. We may need to get creative and so some of them online or video some of them.
