DAILY ANNOUNCEMENTS

August 17, 2018



Students, if you have not already purchased a parking permit from the bookstore please do so ASAP.  Beginning next week cars parked in the student lot without a permit will be stickered. Parking permits are $60 for the year and require a parents signature to purchase. Please see Mrs. Williams in the bookstore to obtain your form.


If you need something changed on your ID card, you can come into the bookstore during your lunch hour to have it corrected. If you pre-ordered an Activity card, it should have a blue strip across the top and say "Activity Card". If it does not, please come in to have that fixed.

Seniors....your IDs should be here Monday or Tuesday of next week. You will get them from your English teacher. Thanks for being patient. We had to crop all of your pictures so they would look right on your ID card.

Students need to have their ID cards every time they get breakfast & lunch. If they don't have their ID Cards yet they can use another form of ID with their Picture and Name on it.

Safety and Security at The Ridge.  As you know, safety and security on school campuses across the country is on everyone's mind.  What can you do to help? Here's a few things:

1.  if you are ever leaving campus through one of our gates and no one is behind you, please take the time to close it.

2. make sure you have your student ID with you at all times and be prepared to show it when asked.

3. if you notice something or someone on campus that looks suspicious in any way, report it to an adult so it can be investigated quickly

4. if and when an emergency event occurs, like an evacuation or lockdown,  listen closely to the directions given by the adults around you.

Thanks for taking an active role in keeping our school safe and secure
