Dear Rock Ridge Community:

I want to first start off by congratulating our Douglas County Apple Award nominees for Rock Ridge, Ms. Kia Jeffords and Ms. Dawna McKnight. Thank you for your submissions and kind words about so many of our staff. We appreciate our community and I welcome the accolades for our teachers and classified staff who so much deserve the recognition.

On another note, I would like to remind parents to PLEASE keep your child home if they have any fever what so ever. We have had many students arrive to school and a few hours later arrive in the health room with a fever or other illness symptoms, sharing that their parents gave them medicine that same morning. This only suppresses symptoms for a short amount of time and the school then ends up contacting parents to come and pick up their child. Please remember that a child must be fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medication and 48 hours from the last bout of diarrhea or vomiting. Thank you for helping us keep Rock Ridge a healthy place to learn.

Congratulations to our spelling bee winner, Pailey Boyd! The competition was intense this year and the title was well earned. Pailey will represent Rock Ridge at the upcoming district level spelling bee. Go Pailey!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns feel free to reach out to me via email or phone. Be safe and have a wonderful Groundhogs day.

Peter Mosby, Principal Rock Ridge Elementary
