Dear Rock Ridge Community:

I hope this letter finds you well and warm as winter has come early to Colorado.

Thank you all for a fun filled night at Monster Mash! It was great to see everyone in his or her cool costumes having so much fun. A special thank you to Keith Cox and Melissa Shea who made this happen with student council. Awesome job StuCo and all the volunteers!!

As we approach Thanksgiving, we have many blessings to be thankful for. We have the best faculty and staff there is, working so hard every day for the benefit of your children and we have a staff of dedicated parent volunteers who have become an essential part of our daily school life. We also have our PTO that is vested with bringing resources to the classroom and our School Accountability Committee that helps with feedback on the direction that Rock Ridge should take with the best interest of students in mind. We are truly thankful for many people who help make Rock Ridge a great place to be.

In regards to our lovely weather that we have been experiencing early this year, please remember to check the district website, call the district weather line (303.387.SNOW) or check with local news for school closures. Calling the school can overwhelm the front office when this information is readily available to everyone.

School begins at 8:30am so please do not drop your children off (especially the young ones) before 8:20am. The school does not have supervision for lineup prior to this time and thus, you could be placing your child at unnecessary risk. This is especially true if your children are not dressed properly for inclement weather. Our students go outside for recess when the weather is above 20 degrees so please plan accordingly.
We all tend to loose our minds after the first snow of the year so please try not to get a little frazzled and remember the important things when it comes to Colorado weather.
