From Superintendent Jordan:
At approximately 9:45 AM this morning local authorities informed us that a bomb threat had been received specifically naming the Ridge View Community School. All students and staff were safely evacuated to Dexter Regional High School where parents were reunified with their children. A State Police canine bomb-sniffing unit performed an extensive search of the school and found nothing suspicious. The school will be in session tomorrow with an added Police presence. Thank you to all of the staff, students, and the Dexter Police Department for handling a very stressful situation in a calm professional manner.
Teaching and learning all ways. Learning and teaching always.
Teaching and learning are the core of our schools. They are what we design everything around. The educators in AOS #94 believe that ALL students have unlimited potential, and our classrooms, schools, and environments mirror that belief. Schools throughout AOS #94 are proficiency-based, meaning that all educators have high expectations for each and every individual student in our schools, and it is our responsibility to help each and every student achieve those expectations. Our schools are committed to teaching and learning from the perspective of the whole child, not just academics. Our educators support all students, not just in developing strong academic minds, but also as responsible and engaged citizens, self-directed learners, creative problem-solvers, informed thinkers, and clear communicators.
