Dear Rock Ridge Families,

Thank you everyone for your generous support of our Fun Run fundraiser this year. What a huge turnout and with your generous contributions we will be able to install a new digital marquee. Thanks again to our PTO for organizing this event and a huge thank you to our supportive community.

The marquee, (sample image inclosed), will be double sided and will bring Rock Ridge into the 21st century. We are looking forward to sharing communications with all of you and our building engineer, Richard, is very excited not to have to brave the cold to place the letters onto our current signage.

Historically, we have hosted a Thanksgiving lunch here at Rock Ridge with families joining us for a huge feast. Unfortunately, the school district does not have enough resources to support a community lunch this year and thus, we will only be able to serve students and staff a Thanksgiving lunch on Wednesday November 15th.

The town of Castle Rock has started road construction on Enderud Blvd between Heritage Ave and N. Carlton St. with east and west bound lanes periodically closed to one lane. PLEASE REMIND WALKERS TO USE THE TUNNELS UNDER
The construction project is expected to last through the month of November.

Thanksgiving break is just around the corner and winter weather is here. Be sure to use this link for updates on school closures and late starts due to severe winter weather.
