How we handle severe weather conditions.

Dear Parents,   As we continue to move towards late Spring and early Summer, I want to make sure everyone is updated on how we handle severe weather conditions.     1. If the sirens are sounding due to a severe weather threat, students will proceed to their designated areas with their teacher.  Students will remain there until the all clear is given and the weather threat has passed.   2.  If the sirens are sounding during dismissal, students WILL NOT be released from the building until the severe weather threat has passed.     If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school at 793-5980.   Thanks,   Joey DiIulio  Principal – Ridgewood Elementary “It’s a great day to be a Roadrunner!”  Read More →
