December 4, 2020

Dear Ridgefield Families,

We made it to December!  For many of us, December is about “anticipation.”  Anticipation is the act of looking forward.  Each December, I look forward to so many different things: seeing all the houses decorated with colorful lights, Ridgefield Hometown Celebration, watching Hallmark holiday movies with my family, receiving greeting cards from family and friends near and far, hoping for a first snow, and more.  However, the truth of the matter is anticipating (the mere act of looking forward) may well be the best part of December.  It allows my imagination to be creative without limits.  I am filled with hope and joy. 

Did you know that the Ridgefield School District uses various communication tools and social media platforms to communicate with our parents and community?  Below is a list of all the different platforms with their associated links.  Our aspiration to be the state’s Premier district extends to communication tools.  To enhance our practice, we invite you to participate in a quick communication survey (linked here).

  • Facebook - @RidgefieldSchools
  • Twitter - @RidgefieldSD

In case you missed a recent District Facebook post, I wanted to share it with you.  If you would like to nominate a staff member, please use the link here.  We have received more than 85 nominations since we posted this on Wednesday.

Don’t forget, please continue sharing photos of your children during Ridgefield Remote (  While we are physically apart, the images help keep us all connected emotionally.  I would love to see the different family traditions and celebrations this holiday season. 

This year I am adding a return to in-person instruction to my list of anticipations.  I look forward to the day we see students and staff back in our buildings.

 Stay well and remain #RidgefieldResilient. 


Dr. Nathan McCann
