RIDGECREST ROAR Nov. 1, 2020
Hello Ridgecrest families,
It is hard to believe we are in the first day of November. The year is passing so quickly. We are supposed to have a beautiful week of temperatures in the upper 60’s. Next week we are supposed to have much colder weather so Just as a reminder, when the temperature is below 22 degrees we bring students inside in the morning. If it is above 22 degrees students will need to wait outside until the bell rings. Please help them to be ready with coats, hats, etc. Breakfast is served every day from 8:15-8:30. We stop serving breakfast at 8:30 so the cafeteria staff can begin packing lunches for our online students and get meals prepared for our in-person students. Please make sure you drop them off by 8:30 if they are eating breakfast!
Change of Placements: The window for submitting change requests starts today, Sunday, Nov. 1. The window will close on Sunday, Nov. 8. Learning option changes will take effect with the start of the trimester on Monday, Nov. 23. You DO NOT need to make a request unless you plan to change your student’s placement. If you do plan to change a placement, you need to go into Skyward and make the selection. An email to me does not count as a placement request. We are excited to welcome students back into the building, but as the COVID numbers continue to rise, we understand some students will want to stay online and others are requesting to move to online. Whatever you decide for your family is a good choice, don’t second guess yourself, you know your families need the best. Please email me with any questions. Julia.email@example.com
Daylight Savings – Remember we “Fall Back” this weekend. Last night you should have set your clocks back one hour. With the time change, it will be dark in the mornings. Please remind your child to be cautious, use crosswalks, etc. Thank you!
BE A HERO, BE A SUB: Subs Needed Flyer.pdf
To support CSD’s efforts to recruit substitute teachers, we have printed large banners for display outside your schools. You should be receiving those soon, if you haven’t already. Additionally, we have produced a podcast on the outpouring of support we’ve received from our communities.
TROTFORTECH VIRTUAL 5K: Turkey Trot 2020 Flyer.pdf
While many traditional celebrations that take place this time of year might look drastically different this season, the Canyons Education Foundation is planning an event that ticks all of the boxes: It’s fun, it’s for a good cause, and the entire community can participate. The Foundation’s inaugural Virtual Fun Run kicks off Nov. 22-28, and provides an opportunity for participants to complete a 5K that is safe and will benefit members of the community through a fundraiser for Internet connectivity and computing devices for students in need. Please encourage employees and families to participate. Registration is $20 and opens tomorrow. Participants will receive a turkey-themed face mask and runner’s bib and have an opportunity to have their names entered in a prize drawing. Attached is a Peachjar flyer going out districtwide. We’ll also be publishing a web story for schools to help amplify.
