Back to School Resources | 20-21
Whether you are new to Forest Ridge or returning for another year, we are here to help you prepare for the start of school this fall. We hope this Resource Center will answer many of your questions about important dates and events, required forms, and individual grade-level information.
If after looking through the information below you still have questions, please contact our offices for assistance. We are available throughout the summer and look forward to supporting your family as you prepare for the 2020-2021 school year.
Forms for middle school students (grades 5-8) should be sent to Bobbi LaBoy at email@example.com and forms for high school students (grades 9-12) should be sent to Teri Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please submit all required forms via mail or email by August 15.
For the 2020-2021 school year, newly enrolled students, as well as current students who are due for a new laptop, will pay an annual technology fee. This fee includes tech support, software licensing fees, campus Wifi and the use of a leased laptop for the academic year. Students who do not yet have a school-issued laptop will receive their computer at the start of the school year.
Our transportation sign-ups have closed. Please contact Charles Du at email@example.com with questions.
Online Parent Portal
Parents have access to an online portal, where they can find calendars, student grades and other important information throughout the year. Parents will receive an email with login instructions over the summer.
FRidge Lunch Account
Each student will be assigned a 4-digit lunch account number. Parents will receive this number and information about how to set up an online lunch account over the summer. Payments to the lunch account may be made online or via check to the Business Office.
Summer reading assignments are designated by grade level and are required for all students. As research has shown, the most effective time a student can spend in the summer to maintain her learning is to read daily – even if it’s for just 15-20 minutes. The required texts will serve as the first unit in each grade level’s English course in the fall.
Summer Bingo Boards (Optional)
These summer bingo boards were created by all of our teachers as a way to provide extension work, creative outlets, ideas for movement and ways to stay engaged with all of the subjects you study throughout the school year. The work on these boards is optional, but we think doing some of these activities – on your own, with your peers or with your family - can enhance your learning and your joy this summer!
