The staff at Ridgely School is excited and ready to welcome students and parents to the first day of school on Monday, August 31, 2020. This year through our virtual experience, we are combining the first day of school with an all day meet your teacher event. To begin, during the registration process parents either selected remote learning or hybrid learning for their child this year. Use the selection to see the teacher at that grade level who matched your choice. Now you are ready on August 31 to watch the welcome video from Mr. Gilmore and various staff. It will be uploaded on Monday. They will be sharing important information for your entire family. Then you are ready for the live portion. Each teacher has set aside three live Zoom sessions for your family to "Meet the Teacher". Parents will be able to access the secure link by checking their email from August 28 sent by their child's teacher. Each session will repeat the same format so families only need to participate in one session. The visits to the classroom will also be used to take attendance for your child on their first day of school. The staff at Ridgely School have been working dilgently on this opening experience and we hope many or all of your questions will be answered. We are looking forward to meeting you and reconnecting with returning families!
