Week Of January 6 – 10, 2020
We hope that all of you had an enjoyable and relaxing holiday with family and friends. We look forward to seeing everyone back at school tomorrow morning and wish all of you a Happy New Year! We apologize for the inconvenience on the last day before the holidays with the school being closed due to a water main break and appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding. As many students had not cleaned out their lockers before the break please remind your children to do so and to take home any belongings. A reminder that the school day beigns at 8:45am ( supervision on the playground starting at 8:30am) and ends at 3:05pm (supervision on the Gr 1-8 playground until 3:20pm). Please be sure to pick your children up from school promptly at the dismissal times.

Week at a Glance Jan 6-Jan 10 2020
Please be sure to register to our website at: https://www.hwdsb.on.ca/ridgemount/ to keep updated on school and HWDSB events.
Please continue to inform and update teachers regarding your children (i.e., medical, allergies, special education needs, parent/guardian changes, address / phone). If your child will need to have medication administered at school, there are mandatory forms to be completed and signed by the treating physicians so please request these forms from the office and have them completed as soon as possible. (NOTE: WE CANNOT ADMINISTER ANY FORM OF MEDICATION INCLUDING OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATIONS WITHOUT THE APPROPRIATE PAPERWORK COMPLETED).
If you require assistance or have any questions about completing these forms please contact your child’s teacher or the school office ( 905 575 1535). Accurate and updated completion of these forms helps us to communicate better with you and to stay updated.
We ask that parents and guardians avoid entering the classrooms unless you have made an appointment or need to speak to a staff member. Please come by the office and we will do our best to accommodate you. This ensures the safety of all students and allows our staff to successfully carry on their responsibilities with as little disruption as possible.
In order to ensure the safety of everyone at Ridgemount please adhere to the traffic / parking signs posted around the school premises. There are designated parking spots and areas that must be kept clear for our buses. Our buses stop on Hester Street and on Ronaldshay Avenue so please keep these areas clear at all times. There is parking/stopping on the East side of Ronaldshay and further up Ronaldshay adjacent the staff parking lot. We ask that parents/guardians not enter the school parking lot during entry and dismissal as we also have our students with special needs loading and unloading buses in the parking lot. The City By Law officers do monitor our school and will ticket so please be diligent in abiding by these rules.
Happy New Year!
Mr. G. Carey – Principal & Mme. N. Kucic – Vice Principal
