Hello Silver Ridge families,


Our first full week of school is in the books! I am sure that you are working on your rhythms and routines just like we are. The start of school is a great time to examine those routines. What is working? What is not working? Do we need to make adjustments? Please reach out to your child’s teacher, our counselor, or me if you are looking for support to make the transition from home to school easier!


And now for some reminders and news that you can use!


Hispanic Heritage month:

Cada año, los estadounidenses celebran el Mes Nacional de la Herencia Hispana del 15 de septiembre al 15 de octubre, celebrando las historias, culturas y contribuciones de los ciudadanos estadounidenses cuyos antepasados vinieron de España, México, el Caribe y América Central y del Sur. ¡Celebra!


Each year, we observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from 9/15 to 10/15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. ¡Celebra!


Parking lot reminders:

I am including a parking lot map with expectations/procedures here to help with drop off and pick up. 


Here are some ways that you can make drop off/pick up more efficient and safe:

  • Be patient. Drop off/pick up is only about a 5-7 minutes. Please wait for a staff member to wave you around or to wave you forward. We are trying our best to time things to make it safe and efficient!
  • Be courteous. Thank you for being amazing role models for your children!
  • Wait for a staff member to open the door for your child. A lot is going on in the parking lot. We want to keep everyone safe, make sure we are not holding up the line, and to greet or say good bye to each student.
  • The parking lot speed is 5 MPH. Thank you for keeping it slow and safe.
