First Responders' Day is almost here!

First Responders' Day is next Tuesday, October 1 at Ridgeview. Numerous local agencies will set up in our school parking lot with their vehicles and gear and talk to our students about what they do in their day-to-day jobs.

On Tuesday, October 1, our parking lot will be closed from 8:45am until 2:30pm. Morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up at the school will be conducted as usual, but everyone must park off-campus. Volunteers and visitors must move their vehicles out of the parking lot no later than 8:45am.

Alternate parking has been secured at the following locations:
