2020-2021 School Year
Thank you to all the parents and guardians for completing the Student Information online survey. The results will be very helpful in our restart plans. We are now asking for parents/guardians to complete the Online Back to school forms. You will find them on our district website at www.ridgewood.k12.oh.us. You will find the OneView Parent Portal under Students/Parents. Every parent/guardian will need to complete back to school forms online. Parents/guardians of student athletes will also complete all the athletic forms online using the OneView Parent Portal. If you need help completing the online back to school forms, please call you child’s school building.
Students first physical day in the building will be Monday, August 31. We are planning a soft opening to the new school year. We are asking for students in Group A to attend on Monday/Tuesday and students in Group B to attend Wednesday/Thursday. All students will begin attending on Friday. This will help students and staff better adapt with the new changes to school year. We apologize for any inconvenience.
