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

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.

Thank you!
