RIDGECREST ROAR       Nov. 24, 2019


The staff of Ridgecrest wishes you are wonderful holiday weekend.  We will have a regular schedule on Monday and Tuesday. There is not an early release day on Tuesday, we get out at 3:20.  Wednesday-Friday we will not hold school. If you are planning to have your child miss school on Monday or Tuesday, please call the office to excuse them.


The holidays often bring us stress and anxiety. Our new school counselor, Mrs. Ferguson, asked me to share this Mental Wellness letter with you. 


Along with the short week comes many cancellations of before and after school programs.  The only programs running this week are Chess Champs and Theatre Troupe.


The following are cancelled:

  • Coaches
  • Dragon Dance
  • Tuesday Choir
  • Chinese Tutoring
  • All programs Wednesday – Friday
