Schools play a large part in the lives of the communities they serve, and when the schools have had to close due to the pandemic, that role did not go away… it got stronger.
Ridgefield School District will be offering free and nutritious sack lunch and breakfast meals for pick up in front of Union Ridge Elementary School (Building B, 330 N. Fifth Street) South Ridge Elementary School (Building B, 502 NW 199 Street) from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM Mondays through Fridays, including during Spring Break.
“Another example of #RidgefieldResilient is the effort to distribute Chromebooks to our students lacking technology devices at home. The distribution will begin later this week, with more details to come,” states Superintendent Dr. Nathan McCann. “Additionally, we are exploring options to bring open-access WiFi hotspots to areas throughout the District, beginning the week of April 6.”
Ridgefield School District is also offering daycare for students who are in kindergarten through fourth grade and are the children of first responders and health care professionals starting Monday, April 6. This program will be at the RACC, and the hours of operation are tentatively set from 7:00 AM to – 6:30 PM. “Our Ridgefield Family Resource Center continues to be a vital support for families throughout the District. Much thanks to the team, including a dedicated group of volunteers, who make this happen daily,” adds McCann.
