School Connects for 2.5.16

Hello. This is Ms. Murphy, Principal of Ridgewood High School calling to assure you that the extra law enforcement on campus today was to ensure students and staff felt safe. There was no reason for panic. In fact, no other school in this county was as safe as Ridgewood was today. Due to the social media chatter, in an abundance of caution, we asked the sheriff’s office to send extra deputies to keep everyone calm. Because the chatter continued throughout the day, we conducted a lockdown and a controlled dismissal. We want to thank everyone for their patience and understanding. As an extra precaution, we will have additional law enforcement on campus next week. Cafe Live will be postponed until Monday, February 8 at 7PM. The softball game is still on tonight at 6PM. Please be assured that our top priority is your children’s safety. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Attendance is the key to success!

images-2The Loss of Privilege (LOP) list for this quarter will be posted last week in classrooms and in the front office. Students that are on this list have accumulated 5 or more absences in a month (Nov, Dec or Jan) or 10 or more absences in semester 1.  If students feel like they have improved their attendance by 50% since they received the excessive absences warning letter, they may apply for an appeal (forms can be picked up in the front office).  Appeals must be requested and submitted by Feb 3rd. Students who are on the LOP list will not be able to participate in any extra curricular activities including sports, clubs, field trips, dances, etc.

PARENT UNIVERSITY – Tuesday, February 2 6-8PM

course selection.001

Please mark you calendars for Tuesday, February 2 from 6-8PM for our 2016-17 Course Selection night for 9th through 11th graders and Financial Aid Night for 12th graders and their families. We will be offering a free dinner starting at 5:30PM in the cafeteria for everyone who attends.

The focus of this workshop is on making appropriate curriculum choices with your child for the upcoming year. Both you and your child should attend. From 6-6:30PM, you can tour the course and program displays in the media center, speak to teachers, and see what programs are available at Ridgewood High School. Our whole group session will begin at 6:40PM immediately followed by several break out sessions on Advanced Placement, Marchman, Dual Enrollment, Health Academy, Business, Robotics and Biomedical Sciences Program as well as our college prep AVID program. Students will also have the opportunity to apply for our 1-1 iPad program where they will be issued an iPad 24-7 during the school year. These are very important choices that your child will be making in the next few weeks and it is imperative that both parents and students are involved!

For Seniors in the Class of 2016, we have invited financial aid officers from PHSC to help you navigate the FAFSA and scholarship opportunities for post-secondary opportunities.

I believe that attending this event will answer the majority of your questions, but if you have further questions please feel free to email your child’s teachers, school counselors or assistant principal.
