RIDGECREST ROAR       Nov. 29, 2020

Hello Ridgecrest families,

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday with family.  I do not have a lot of information for the Roar this week. No news is often good news!

 

We are headed into a sunny, but cold week. Please remember to put the name in your child’s coat so we can tell who it belongs to and it does not end up in the lost and found.

 

It is going to be a quiet week at Ridgecrest and we hope to really focus on learning and routines.  As we get set to start the month of December, we will review hand washing and sanitizing, wearing masks, and physical distancing.  The teachers have worked so hard on continuing to hold classes that are very similar to previous years routines.  I am counting on a great month of December with lots of learning and little distractions.

Hello Ridgecrest families,

Thank you for the food you sent in for the food drive.  We collected so much food and it went to many families!  We will be supporting 14 Ridgecrest families with the food.  In these difficult times, it is so wonderful to see so many caring families. Thank you! I wish you each a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

 

We will be welcoming 40 students to in-person learning tomorrow and five will move online.  The next learning option change will be at the beginning of March.  Let’s hope COVID is on the way out and we can have everyone return!

 

This is a short week and we are only in school on Monday and Tuesday.  If you plan to keep your student’s home, please call in and excuse them. 801-826-9250. Thank you!

 

This is just a reminder to send your students to school with a clean mask each day.  A second mask in the backpack is often needed and would be great if you have an extra.

Ridgecrest Roar November 15

RIDGECREST ROAR       Nov. 15, 2020

Hello Ridgecrest families,

With the arrival of winter, families face new challenges in attending school. Please help your child to remember to wear a coat, have appropriate winter wear, and wear or bring shoes that can go out in the snow.  As you drive to school, please make sure you plan for extra travel time through the winter conditions.  Our drop off and pick up are busier during snow days so please plan accordingly.  We would like to ask that your child is ready to get out of the car within a 5 second window.  This will greatly decrease the back up in the drop off lane.  Making sure backpacks are ready to go as well as giving hugs and kisses before you get in the car are great ways to decrease time at the drop off.  Your help in this is greatly appreciated!

 

Our food drive is going great!  Thank you for your generosity!  Thursday is the last day of food drive. We plan to disperse the food on Friday. If your family would to receive support from the food drive, please contact me.  Julie.winfree@canyonsdistrict.org

 

The majority of COVID situations in our district are from social exposures.  This might be from get-togethers with friends, colleagues and family.   For this reason, the governor’s order directs Utahns to not socially gather with anyone from outside their immediate household.  Please practice the following precautions:

  • Wear a face mask anytime you are around people with whom you don’t live.
  • Maintain physical distance from those who aren’t in your household.
  • Practice good hand-washing hygiene (use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if you don’t have access to soap and water).
  • Stay home when you: are sick, have symptoms of COVID, have tested positive for COVID, or have been placed on quarantine.

 

Smiths Rewards Program – a few weeks ago I sent out requests to join the Smiths reward program.  I had a few parents reach out to ask for more explicit directions.  Attached you will find directions on how to sign up.  Thank you for your support!    Smiths Rewards Info.docx
