Dear Parents and Students:
My name is Krystina White and it is with great excitement that I introduce myself as the Principal of Ridge Elementary School. I have been committed to Ridge Elementary School since 2015 while I taught and led in the roles of Learning Specialist and Assistant Principal. I am truly honored to be in this position and I am looking forward to working with the faculty, staff, students and parents at Ridge. On behalf of the assistant principals, faculty and staff at Ridge Elementary School, we would like to welcome you back to school for the 2022-2023 school year!
School begins on Thursday, September 1, 2022. The first day of school is a full day for students in grades K-4. Enclosed you will find a copy of your child’s supply list, a babysitter card and an index card indicating your student’s ID, the bus route and class information. Please have your child wear this label to school for the first few days to ensure proper placement on the bus home. Your patience with bus schedules, drop off and pick up is appreciated during these first few days. If your child goes to a babysitter after school, please complete the pink babysitter card and have your child give it to his/her teacher on the first day of school. As mandated by New York State Law, a summary version of the Longwood School District Code of Conduct will be sent home for your information. Please note that breakfast and lunch are free for all students.
On the first day of school, your child will bring home a packet of important papers. Please read these carefully as some of them need to be returned to school.
A ‘Homework Folder’ will be given to each child to carry class work, notices and letters to and from school each day. Please look for it as it provides a means of communication between the teacher and parent(s).
We look forward to welcoming each student back to school and to meeting our kindergarteners and new entrants who have recently moved into the area. We are happy to have you join the Ridge School Community! Enjoy the rest of your summer!
