January 31, 2017
A message from Dr. Leininger:
We ask all parents that if you are going away and leaving your child in the care of a grandparent, friend, neighbor, aunt, etc., please let us know and make sure that their name is on the release form in Skyward.  If your child should become ill, we don't want to spoil your vacation in the islands by calling you long distance!
 
Currently there are three “party themes” which we celebrate at school: Halloween, the Winter Holidays and Valentine's Day. We will offer food for these holidays only as long as it meets the Ridgewood School’s Healthy Snack List. Candy, foods or beverages where sugar is the first ingredient or food of minimal nutritional value may not be served or given out. Valentines with candy inside will be sent home. We have children who are allergic to different kinds of foods, are diabetic, or cannot tolerate gluten. Speak with your child's teacher or Mrs. Caruso if you have any concerns. Thank you for understanding. We want everyone to enjoy the holiday! A message from Mrs. Caruso:
