November Newsletter
November 2, 2020

Greetings Ridge View Families,

It is hard to believe that November is here and we are about to enter the holiday season.  It seems like this time of year always goes by quickly!

Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held next Wednesday and Thursday, November 11th and 12th.  As a reminder, all conferences will be held VIRTUALLY.  If you have questions or need assistance scheduling a conference, please contact our office. Additional instructions and a virtual meeting link will come directly from your child’s teacher.

As a reminder, there is NO school Friday, November 6th or November 13th.  There will be no work sent home for students to complete these days.

Details about other important dates are included in the November Newsletter and are also listed on our school calendar.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.  Thank you for your continued support!

Sincerely,

Meredith Doleac, Principal


Halloween Activities 

In an effort to follow health and safety guidelines, we will not hold a Halloween Parades this year.  Instead, students will participate in teacher-directed Halloween activities in their classes on Thursday, October 29th.  We invite students to wear their costumes to school that day if they would like to.  Please remember that masks, hoods that cover the face, and weapon facsimiles are not permitted.  Also, this year we ask that students not wear face paint or bring costume accessories that can be passed around or held by other students.  Face coverings are required to be worn as usual throughout the day.

We are grateful for the support and assistance of volunteers.  While we continue to limit the number of visitors in the school, we encourage you to contact your child’s teacher to ask how you can help “from a distance”.  We look forward to making this day as fun and memorable as possible for our students during these unique circumstances!


October Newsletter

October 1, 2020

Greetings Ridge View Families!

What a busy first month of school it’s been!  I’ve absolutely loved seeing our students back in class. I truly appreciate your patience and support as we have worked to implement so many new procedures and protocols this year.  As a reminder, we ask that you continue to conduct temperature and symptom checks at home each school day. Please keep children home if they are ill or exhibiting symptoms of Covid-19.  I have attached a letter from the Salt Lake County Health Department, which provides additional information and guidelines for schools.

October is a busy month that brings an extended break for students.  Please be aware that Fall Recess is 19th-23rd, and there is also no school on Monday, October 26th due to Grade Transmittal Day.  I hope you find time to relax and enjoy some fun and safe fall festivities with your families!

Unfortunately, we are unable to hold many of our traditional Halloween festivities this year, including the parade.  However, we still plan to make it a fun day for our students and will provide teacher-directed Halloween activities on Thursday, October 29th.  Students are also invited to wear their costumes to school that day. Please watch for additional details and information to come in the upcoming weeks.

Details about other important dates are included in the October Newsletter and are also listed on our school calendar.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.

Sincerely,

Meredith Doleac, Principal

VIRTUAL Back-to-School Night

August 20, 2020

Dear Ridge View Families,

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year!  While many of us share feelings of excitement and anticipation, we also understand there might be little bit of worry and uncertainty.  Please carefully read and review the Re-Opening Plan I sent earlier today.  I am hopeful it will alleviate your concerns and answer any questions you might have in relation to the health and safety precautions we have put in place here at Ridge View Elementary.

Additionally, we are excited to present a “VIRTUAL Back-to-School Night” so that you and your students can get to know their teachers before the first day of school next week.  I am confident you will enjoy the fun and insightful information they have provided, and hope this too will help ease any worries or concerns you’ve been having.  We realize this year will be very different from others in the past, but we are working hard to find new ways of doing some of the familiar things we’ve always done.  We love our students and are committed to do all we can to make it a positive year for them!

As a reminder, the first day of school for 1st-6th grade is Tuesday, August 25th.  The first day for kindergarten and preschool is Wednesday, September 2nd.  When students arrive at school, they should go to their grade level doors and line up with their class on an assigned ground marker.  Teachers will be outside to greet students and escort them into the building.  Please keep the following things in mind for daily drop-off:

  • Outside supervision begins at 8:45 a.m. Students should not arrive at school prior to that time.
  • Playgrounds will be closed before school.
  • Students should put on a face covering when arriving on school grounds.
  • Upon arrival, students should social distance as they enter the school grounds and walk to their designated lines.
  • Students should wear a face covering while waiting in line and before entering the building.

As always, I am very grateful for your support and appreciate the partnership we share in the education of your students.  Please know that much of this year’s planning is new to us and that we know there will be things we need to correct or improve once we get up and going.  We ask for your patience and understanding.  I welcome your feedback and am happy to answer any questions you have.

Here is to a wonderful school year!

Sincerely,

Meredith Doleac, Principal


Ridge View Elementary Re-Opening Plan

August 20, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

WELCOME BACK! We are so excited to get the new school year started.  As we embark upon the challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have created a RE-OPENING PLAN in an effort to mitigate the spread of the virus and create a culture of safety and respect among our entire school community.  The plan meets the requirements established by both the State and the District, and also addresses routines, procedures, and expectations specific to Ridge View Elementary.  Please know that the development of this plan is ongoing and is something we have never done before.  We will learn as we go and make adjustments based on the needs of our students, staff, and school community.

Please also be aware of the recent clarification by Governor Gary Herbert and the Utah Department of Health in regards to face coverings in schools.  The health order states that every individual inside of a school building or on a school bus must wear a face mask.  It also clarified that face shields are not a substitute for face masks, except in special circumstances when the ability to see the mouth is essential.

Sincerely,

Meredith Doleac, Principal

I want to thank you for your support as we’ve all worked together to keep our students healthy and learning throughout the school dismissal.  As we approach the end of the school year, we encourage you to continue your efforts and hard work.  The following are some important updates and information you should be aware of.  As always, please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions.

Year End Dates

As previously stated, teachers will continue to provide educational services through the last day of school, Friday, June 5th.  There will be no NEW assignments given after May 22nd.  The final two weeks of school will be spent reviewing content, conferencing with students, and completing missing assignments if needed.  Teachers will also be providing fun, virtual ways to bring closure to the school year.

On June 4th, 5th, and 8th we will be collecting Chromebooks and other school issued items such as library books and classroom materials.  At this time, we will also return students’ personal belongings from their desks and classrooms. This process will take place by appointment. Specific scheduling instructions are attached to this email and will also be sent in an additional Skylert message.

Personal Belongings

If you do not have a Chromebook and/or other school issued items, you will still need to come to the school June 4th, 5th, or 8th to pick up students’ personal belongings that were left in their desks and classrooms.  This process will take place by appointment only.  Specific scheduling instructions are attached to this email and will also be sent in an additional Skylert message.

Please be aware that all items will be collected and returned at the main doors of the school.  When you arrive for your appointment, we ask that you follow appropriate social distancing guidelines and maintain 6 feet between you and others who may be waiting.  In order to manage the number of visitors at any one time, we will adhere to the appointment schedule as closely as possible.  Please do not arrive at school without an appointment.

Sincerely,

Meredith Doleac, Principal

Go check it out and get involved!


May 8, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I hope this finds you and your families healthy and well!  Thank you for your continued patience and support over the last several weeks.  I am extremely appreciative of our entire school community for the flexibility, understanding, and positivity that has been shown during the school dismissal.  As we begin preparations for the end of the school year, I want to provide you with a few important reminders.

As previously shared in a Jordan School District Communication, there will be no NEW assignments given after May 22nd.  Educational services will continue to be provided through June 5th and teachers will remain available for questions and conferencing.  We are planning many fun and engaging activities for our students to enjoy during the final weeks of school. Please watch for more information to come from your child’s individual teacher.

During the week of June 1-5, we will be collecting Chromebooks and other school issued items such as library books and classroom materials. At this time, we will also return students’ personal belongings from their desks and classrooms.  This process will take place by appointment.  Instructions for scheduling an appointment will be sent soon.

As always, I want to thank you for your partnership in the education of our students. This has truly been an unprecedented time full of challenges and uncertainties.  I am so impressed by the willingness of our students, parents, and teachers to work together.  This might not be how we wanted our first year to end, but it’s certainly one to remember!

Again, please watch for additional information to come soon.  In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns I can help with.

Sincerely,

Meredith Doleac, Principal


May Newsletter

Greetings Ridge View Families!

As we begin the month of May, I have found myself missing the many activities that normally fill this busy time at school - - end of year testing, assemblies, programs, field day, and other fun events, to name a few. It’s taken me back to how sad I felt when I learned that the school dismissal would go until the end of the school year.  While it was not entirely surprising, it was no less disappointing. The staff and I truly miss seeing you and look forward to when we can be together again in person. In the meantime, we will be coming up with some other types of “virtual” school activities to wrap up the year!

Please see the May/June Newsletter for a few items you should be aware of. Also, watch for additional information and other details to come out soon regarding the final weeks of school.  I will provide instructions on how and when you can return Chromebooks and other school property, as well as pick up your student’s personal belongings.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  Thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,

Meredith Doleac, Principal

Meredith Doleac, Principal

April Newsletter

Greetings Ridge View Families,

It is hard to know where to begin as I send out the April Newsletter.  Never in a million years could I have imagined the circumstances we all find ourselves in today.  Just last month, I mentioned how excited I was for the upcoming weeks and the many fun school activities and events that accompany them.  Instead, we find ourselves with a very unexpected interruption to our school year.  One that has left all of us adjusting our daily lives and adapting to a new “normal”.

While we may not see one another at school on a daily basis, and though our usual routines and activities have been disrupted, the teachers and I are committed to providing as much structure and stability as possible for our students.  Our love for your children, and our dedication to them and the entire school community, remains strong.  While you will not read of upcoming events or important dates in the April Newsletter, I hope you will see it as one more means to stay connected to all of you.  We appreciate your support and partnership always, but especially during these challenging and uncertain times.

Please be aware that school will be closed next week for Spring Recess and there will be no access to the building.  At-home learning will resume on Monday, April 13th.

If you have any questions or if there is anything I can ever do for you, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  Thank you for your continued support!

Sincerely,

Meredith Doleac, Principal


To assist parents and students with at-home, digital learning, Jordan School District has established a Student and Parent Technical Support Hotline number (801) 567-8999.

The hotline is available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday (except April 9 and 10) for anyone in need of technical support for Google Classroom, Canvas, Chromebook, internet, etc.


March 21, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I want to take a moment to reach out and let you know how much we appreciate the patience and understanding you have shown over the past week.  As we learn to navigate our way through these challenging times, I speak for the entire Ridge View faculty and staff when I tell you that we couldn’t do this without your support.  We are lucky to have such an amazing school community.  Please tell your students how much we love them and miss them.  While we are disappointed that our school year has been interrupted, we want them to know that we are still thinking of them!

I would like to make you aware of the following updates for the upcoming week:

  • Ridge View will no longer be serving school lunch.  Parents have been notified of the locations in which students can now pick up lunches.  Breakfast and lunch will be FREE for ALL children 18 and under.
  • In an effort to maintain social distancing, building access will be limited.  Ridge View will be open daily from 8am-1pm, however, there may or may not be staff available in the office. Phones will continue to be answered daily and messages will be checked often. Parents and students should come to the school only during scheduled times that have been prearranged with teachers or staff.  We will make every effort to be available to you via phone and email, should you have any questions, concerns, etc.
  • Instructions for accessing Google Classroom and Canvas are posted on our website. For other questions, please contact your teacher or the office.
  • There have been no updates regarding the length of the school dismissal.  You will be notified when these become available.

We recognize that this is a difficult time.  For children, breaking routine can cause stress and uncertainty.  To help manage anxiety that may arise while students are out of school, I’ve included a few resources you might find helpful.

Confident Parents, Confident Kids – My Kid’s School is Closed, So Now What?

Thank you for your support during this challenging time.  Even though we don’t see them every day, we want our students to know that we continue to be here for them.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out if we can offer support or answer questions.

Sincerely,

Meredith Doleac, Principal

Thank you for your continued support and partnership in the education of our students.

March Newsletter

Greetings Ridge View Families,

It’s hard to believe that March is upon us!  I always like this time of year, as it brings more opportunities to be outside with warmer temperatures and longer daylight hours.  It also marks the beginning of the last months of school, all of which tend to be busy and filled with many fun activities and events.

Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held next Wednesday and Thursday, March 11th and 12th.  All conferences will take place in your child’s classroom.  While you are here, we also invite you to visit the PTA Book Fair.

As a reminder, this Thursday, March 5th is an early out day and school will dismiss at 1:55 p.m. Friday, March 6th is a Grade Transmittal Day and there is NO SCHOOL. Next Thursday, March 12th is also an early out day and school will dismiss at 1:55 p.m.  There will be NO SCHOOL on Friday, March 13th.

Details about other important dates are included in the March Newsletter and are also listed on our school calendar.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.  Thank you for your continued support!

Sincerely,

Meredith Doleac, Principal


Dear Parents/Guardians,

In order to ensure the safety of our students at Ridge View Elementary, as well as maintain the smooth flow of traffic in our parking lots, we ask for your cooperation with the following procedures.

 

  1. Please limit your speeds. It is important to remember that children sometimes act unpredictably.  Lower speed allows for appropriate reaction time.
  2. Please refrain from using your phone during drop-off and pick-up time.
  3. When entering the drop-off/pick-up zone from Greenford Lane, please be mindful of traffic coming from both directions. We ask that drivers be considerate by taking turns and allowing one another to merge into the entrance.
  4. Please help maintain a continual flow of traffic by pulling all the way forward when dropping off and picking up your child. Students will be expected to wait south of the first crosswalk in order for cars to pull as far forward as possible.  Should you notice that you pull ahead of your child, he/she will be directed to walk to your vehicle. While we understand this will require patience on the part of everyone, following these procedures will contribute to the smooth flow of traffic, and most importantly, to the safety of our students.  As a reminder, please do not cut in front of waiting vehicles by entering the drop-off/pick-up zone from the thru lane.
  5. Please do not leave your vehicle unattended in the drop-off/pick-up zone. If you need to come into the school for any reason, please park in the parking lot and use the crosswalk.
  6. Students should exit and enter vehicles on the passenger (curb) side of the vehicle. It is not safe for them to load/unload on the left, as they will be in the thru lane of moving vehicles. This is very dangerous and impedes traffic.
  7. Should you choose to use the visitor parking lot in front of the school for drop-off or pick-up, please be aware that you must PARK your vehicle and walk your student to and from the crosswalk. Students will not be permitted to cross to the parking lot without an adult. Please understand this cautionary measure is for the safety of your children.  There is limited supervision in the visitor parking lot and we do not want to place students in hazardous situations.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience.  We appreciate your assistance in helping to keep our students safe!

Sincerely,

Meredith Doleac, Principal


February Newsletter

Greetings Ridge View Families,

It was definitely an exciting start to February as Mother Nature delivered a winter storm prompting an unexpected snow day! Hopefully, you all stayed warm and enjoyed the day off.  Events like this serve as a good reminder of how important it is to keep contact information up to date.  We make every effort possible to keep families informed with different means of communication, primarily Skylert emails and phone calls. Should any of your contact information ever change, please be sure to update it with our office.

As a reminder, kindergarten enrollment for the 2020-21 school year is underway.  It is very important that we have an accurate count of the number of kindergartners who will be coming to Ridge View next school year.  If you have a child who will be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2020, please come into the office to register him/her.  Kindergarten Orientation will be held Friday, February 28th at 2:15 p.m.

We have recently been working to address several safety concerns in our parking lots and drop-off/pick-up zones. While some of our procedures might mean waiting a minute or two longer during arrival and dismissal times, we can all agree there is nothing more important than keeping our students safe.  Please watch for additional information and parking lot safety procedures to be sent home soon.  Thank you in advance for taking the time to review these guidelines and for making student safety a priority at Ridge View!

Don’t forget there is NO SCHOOL on Monday, February 17th for President’s Day.  Details about other important dates are included in the February Newsletter and are also listed on our school calendar.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.  Thank you for your continued support!

Sincerely,

Meredith Doleac, Principal

September Newsletter

Greetings Ridge View Families,

It’s hard to believe that it’s already September and we are well into our first few weeks of school!  The months of preparation that went into planning and opening Ridge View Elementary were well worth it as we see the classrooms filled and hear the buzz of learning!

I believe that a strong partnership between home and school is essential to the success of our students.  One means of accomplishing this is to ensure regular and consistent communication.  We understand the importance of keeping families informed and will utilize several different means of communication.  In order to receive important information and updates, please ensure that we always have a current email address and phone number for your family.

Additionally, our website and school newsletter are a couple of other places you can find helpful information.  Please find the September Newsletter here.

I value your feedback and welcome opportunities to hear from you.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or input you might have.

Sincerely,

Meredith Doleac, Principal
