DAILY ANNOUNCEMENTS

December 13, 2018 We would like to invite you to come to the Choir Holiday Concert Thursday, December 13th at 7:00 pm.  There is no charge for admission and will be a great way to get into the holiday spirit. In addition, you might be able to do some holiday shopping!  We have over 50 businesses that have donated wonderful items for our Silent Auction. Food, activities, stores and more! Before the concert and during intermission, you will be able to place "bids".  We will announce the winners at the end of the concert!

 

The DRHS Performing Arts Department will be holding auditions for Cinderella on December 17 after school in the Room 4114.

A workshop to learn music and choreography is scheduled for Dec 14 after school in 4114. It is not required but highly recommended to attend.

Please see Mrs. Riordan in 4114 for more information.


If you will be absent during Final Exams on December 20th and/or 21st... - Final exams will not be given early. - Students who miss the final exam will be given an "Incomplete" in the class until the final exam is made up, when school resumes in January. - A parent or guardian will need to contact the Attendance Office and excuse the absence. Students with unexcused absences are not permitted to make up final exams. - Students will need to notify each of their teachers and make arrangements with each of them to make-up the final exam. - The Front Office does not arrange or conduct make-up testing.

NHS is holding free peer tutoring twice a week; English on Tuesdays, Math and Science on Thursdays for students of all capabilities. Locations are posted on the bulletin boards around the school.

Students need to have their ID cards every time they get breakfast & lunch.


As you know, the prevalence of vaping on school campuses across the country is on the rise.  Unfortunately, we are no exception. Not only is the use of vape products a terrible health decision, it also has significant discipline consequences to include suspension from school and referral to a hearing officer.  Simply put, it's not worth it. Do the right thing for yourself and others. Keep vaping off of our campus.

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. When you are 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 lock down,  listen closely to the directions given by the adults around you.

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

The senior panoramic photo will be taken Wednesday, February 7th during JCT (9:48-10:29). If your student is at EVIT during this time, but would like to be in the photo that day, they will have to miss EVIT to attend. Please note that the school does not excuse the absence for these students because the photo is NOT a mandatory event. Thus, you will need to call and excuse your EVIT student's absence. 

Thank you!
