2016-17 School Supply List

school-supply-listsThe 2016-17 School Supply Lists are posted at these links:

9th Grade Supply List

Upperclassmen Supply List

These lists are a sampling of supplies that may be needed. Teachers will provide additional needs during the first week of school. Don’t forget we will be giving away free supplies and backpacks at the Back to School Bash on August 6 (while supplies last) from 8AM-11AM. Also, all freshmen will receive a free survival pack at the Ram U Freshmen Orientation on August 4.

iLearn Device Information:

**All 9th and 10th graders will be issued a school-issued laptop or iPad to support their learning. Students who pay the insurance fee ($40 for iPad and $80 for laptop) will be able to take the device home each day. Those who do not have the school insurance will check it in and out of the media center daily.

Students in the Class of 2018 or 2017 who wish to have a 1:1 iPad or laptop who purchase the insurance may also take home a school-issued device for the year.

The expectation is that students will bring their devices daily to class.

Students may also Bring Their Own Technology (laptop, tablet, iPad, etc.) and register it in the media center with Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Finn.

** All students will need ear buds.

New Student Modified Dress Code 2016-17 (Updated 7.21.16, 1:58PM)

UPDATED: In response to constructive comments and questions that have been voiced as well as student focus sessions held today, we have updated the new Student Modified Dress Code to reflect additional recommendations regarding shirts, accessories, and hoodies. We have updated and reposted on our website the most accurate copy. We will also provide examples of the wide range of options that students have to dress for success! Please call or email us if you have any questions at 727-774-3900.

If you need financial assistance with meeting the expectations of the modified dress code, please complete the Clothe a Ram form located on the website. We will be in contact with you.


For the 2016-17 school year, Ridgewood High School will be moving forward with the RHS Modified Student Dress Code_7.21.16 Pilot. We will be providing low cost options for purchase at the Registration Days on August 4, 8, and 9 as well as throughout the school year. However, you may also purchase on your own. We believe that the majority of the clothing options students may already have in their wardrobes. If you are in need of financial assistance, please complete the Clothe A Ram Form and we will be in contact with you.

It is highly recommended that all students follow the dress code starting August 15, 2016. All students will be required to dress in accordance with the Modified Dress Code by October 18. We have also put together a RHS Modified Dress Code Overview & FAQ to assist you in this transition. If you have any further questions, please contact us at 727-774-3900.
