Happy New Year!

We have already had an exciting beginning of the year with sunny and 50’s to bitter cold and some snow. Welcome to Colorado, where if you do not like the weather, wait five minutes.
This time of year, we start having more snow in the forecast and thus, possible late starts or even snow days. Be sure to check the district webpage for a refresher on how the district makes these decisions and then communicates to the community.
With that said, please also remember that we do not have supervision outside of school until 8:20, when we have our soft start and begin allowing students into the building. Please do not drop off your students before this time because of the cold and lack of adults outside of the building.
Some other friendly reminders:
• The attendance line at Rock Ridge (303-387-5152) is available 24 hours a day
• Please contact the office for messages to students prior to 3:00pm each day
• We are still practicing district COVID policies, including only allowing students on property. Please remain in your vehicle during pick up and drop off and refrain from walking onto campus from 8:20-8:50 and 3:20-3:50
• If you need to pick up your child or drop them off between 8:50-3:00, contact the office when you pull up in the car loop lane so that we can escort your child to your vehicle
• If you need to drop off an item for your child between 8:50-3:00, you may notify the front office by pressing the bell at the front door, notify us what the item is and for whom, then place the item(s) in the drop off container in the front
Thank you everyone for your understanding and patience. We appreciate your support and look forward to a brighter future soon.

With half of the year behind us, the past year has been a rougher ride than a roller coaster at Magic Mountain! The good news is I think by May we should be pulling into the station and ending this crazy ride. So hang in there and stay strong and let us start by making it to Spring Break and warmer weather.

Thank you everyone for making Rock Ridge Elementary a great place to learn. Have a wonderful month and stay warm.
