Congratulations to Our Own Varsity Volleyball Coach - Brenda McCoy!

Mrs. McCoy, 5th grade math teacher and varsity volleyball coach for Ridgewood, achieved her 100th win when our Ridgewood Lady General volleyball team faced off against the Newcomerstown Lady Trojans on Thursday night. This is Mrs. McCoy's 7th year teaching at Ridgewood. She has coached volleyball here for 18 years, with the last 6 years (since 2015 until now) as the head volleyball coach. When asked about her success, she attributes a big part of it to Mr. Dan Smith, who she played for, and now coaches with, at Ridgewood. "Dan has been a great mentor to me... I learned from the best" she said. She also said she was "Blessed to work with the outstanding youth of Ridgewood, talented young ladies and a great coaching staff". She as well wanted to thank the Booster Club, Mr. Masloski and Mr. Smoulder for their continued support and the surprise celebration with the team after Thursday's game.

2021-22 Free/Reduced Lunch Available for All Students

Ridgewood Local School will participate in the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) during the 2021-22 school year. Under this option, all children in the school receive a breakfast/lunch at no charge. However, you must complete, sign and return an application to your school building to partake. There are three application options:

1.   Free and reduced application is available online with your back to school forms on OneView. You will need to create a Payschools account and will also need the students ID number.  If you are already using Payschools for lunch payments it will be the same login information and will not need the students ID number, as your student is already linked to that account. If you need to add a new student to that account you will need the student’s ID. You can access Payschools here:  https://www.payschoolscentral.com/

Instruction page:  https://www.ridgewood.k12.oh.us/Downloads/PaySchools

2.  Printable applications are available on the school website under the food services section.  

3.   Paper applications are available for pickup at each school building in the foyer.  Paper applications will not be sent home with every student this year.  They can be sent home with students upon request. 

If you have received a Direct Certification letter from the school, you do NOT fill out a form.  If all children were not listed on the notice please contact Michelle Stoffer 740-545-5301. You must fill out a new form every year.  The form only needs to be filled out once per family, not for every student. If your income changes, you can update the form at any time.
