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.
Family Code Night happened for K-5 families on Wednesday, December 6th. Over 50 people (adults and kids) showed up to learn about and experience coding, computational thinking, and computer science. It was a fun time exploring Ozobots, Osmo, and the Hour of Code activities!
Special thanks to Jessica Mallar for organizing the event, to Anne Jordan and Alyson Saunders for their support before and during the event, to the Middle School and High School volunteers who stepped up big time to help make this event run smoothly, and to all of the families and students who came and participated!
