Emergent Delayed Openings and Early Dismissals

In case of a delayed opening, for all days, including Wednesday, the school day will begin at 11:00 am and students will be dismissed at 3:00 pm. Ridge and Valley Charter School generally follows the North Warren Regional cluster for delayed openings. Families will be notified of emergent delays, closings, and early dismissals via a broadcast phone message system, as well as through emails to all families via the rvcs-news list. It is always important that the school be able to reach you or your emergency contact person. It is imperative that all families update the emergency contact forms annually, as well as anytime that there is a change.

If your child needs to be dismissed from school for a personal reason, please let the office, as well as your child’s team, know in advance, then come to the office to sign your child out. Students may be out in the field at any time so knowing in advance of your arrival at the office is important in order to have the child packed up and ready to leave with you in a timely manner.
