RIDGECREST ROAR       Nov. 19, 2018

Hello Parents,

As we head into the Thanksgiving Holiday I want to remind you that this week is just a 2-day week. Tuesday is a normal day of school and we will not get out until 3:20. There is no school on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. As I reflect on the start of this school year, I want to thank each of you for your support of Ridgecrest and being an incredible community that I get to serve. I feel blessed and privileged to work with such and incredible staff, amazing students and supportive parents. Thank you for all you do for Ridgecrest. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Last week you were notified by the district that items were found at Antczak Park that belonged to homeless people that were living at the park and drug paraphernalia were found in these belongings. I would like to ask you again to make sure your students are not dropped off before 8:30 in the morning and that they are picked up by 3:35 in the afternoon. There is no supervision before or after these times. The only exception should be if students are eating breakfast at 8:15 or they are in a before or after school program. We have also noticed students are waiting at the park and at the church across the street. Please know that this is off campus and we are not aware when students are not picked up. Please help us keep your students safe by dropping them off and picking them up on campus during supervised hours.
