A Message from Ridgeview
Ridgeview Families and Students,
We are so excited to embark on this new adventure with you! Sometimes change can be scary, but we are Huskies and up for the challenge. One thing I would ask of everyone is that we have patience, understanding and offer everyone some grace. This is new territory for all of us and it is only by working as a team that we will be successful.
As we move into this new realm of E Learning, please know that we are here to help. Our staff has been preparing lessons for your students so they can continue to grow and learn. The teachers will be engaged in teaching during normal school hours and will have dedicated time set aside each day to be actively engaged with students and families either through Google Hangouts, phone calls, or emails. Please keep in mind that our teachers have families and children that also require their support, so they will not always be available for an immediate response.
Despite our unique situation, it will be important for your children to have a regular routine. Children do best when maintaining their usual school night bedtime and wake up times. Having an area in your house reserved for school work is helpful. If you are working from home, like many of us are, you could refer to it as your child’s office or classroom. Set a schedule for your student to do their school work, possibly having your child help create that schedule so they have some control over their day. Break up the work so your child has a chance to get some fresh air and exercise, mental and physical health is important too. If your child’s “school day” extends past 3:30, that’s ok. Make the schedule work based upon your family’s needs and access to devices. Finally, please communicate regularly with your child’s teacher. They want to know what struggles you or your child are experiencing and what celebrations you are seeing.
We look forward to being back in school with our students just as soon as possible. Until then, please know that we are here to help through this unique time. We can do this and achieve great things. Remember...We Are Husky Strong!
