Week of January 13-17, 2020
Please continue to check the school website and the board website for updates regarding the labour action within our school board. At this point in time all scheduled field trips including the grade 6 trip to Dundas Conservation Area and Skating will be cancelled. Refunds will be returned to families as soon as we can organize this. My apologies as I have updated the Week at a glance to indicate that Sub Day will aso be cancelled at this time. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
We are also asking that those driving their children to school follow the parking signs on Ronaldshay Ave and Hester Street. As a courtesy to our neighbours do not block driveways as we have had complaints about this and the Parking Enforcement Office has been notified and will be monitoring our school zone and ticketing those violating the parking signs. To avoid congestion and unsafe situations in our school parking lot do enter the parking lot at entry or dismissal. We ask that you park in the designated stopping/parking zones on the streets. Thank you.

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 during entry and dismissal times unless you have made an appointment. 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.
Have a great week!
Mr. G. Carey – Principal & Mme. N. Kucic – Vice Principal
