Dear Ridgefield Families,

On Monday, April 6, the Ridgefield School District will begin school online.  The first week will focus on social-emotional learning lessons that the whole family can participate in to help get students ready to engage in a more rigorous and structured virtual learning environment.

Monday morning, you will receive an email through Skyward Messenger, as well as an automated phone call, letting you know that the social-emotional learning lessons are available on the District website.   

Over the last several weeks, the District has worked collaboratively with Ridgefield teacher leaders to craft our “Continuity of Learning” plan.  I wish to thank each member of that team, administrators and teachers, for their hard work and dedication to our students and families.  Click HERE to see the plan in its entirety.    

This is a wholly different endeavor than our traditional school structure.  We are fully committed to continuous improvement.  We anticipate, and frankly predict, there will be hiccups and speeds bumps as we get started.  We ask for your patience and grace as we begin this journey together.

We look forward to resuming school on Monday.  Enjoy the rest of your spring break.  Stay well and remain #RidgefieldResilient.  



Dr. Nathan McCann
