Dear Ringwood School Community, Day one of the 2023-2024 academic year is in the books. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to stop by each of our great Ringwood Schools and visit nearly every single classroom. What I saw was over 1,000 students eagerly attending to the instructions of their teachers on activities to start the year. Kindergarten was hard at work, right away, on the number “1.” I certainly found that fitting as the feeling across the district was a “first” for so many reasons for everyone. Today we may experience temperatures in the low 90s. Where some schools across the country are dismissing early, Ringwood is equipped for high temperatures with at least window units in classrooms. Principals will monitor temperatures and respond appropriately with indoor options and/or limit excessive activity if outdoor temperatures get too high. Thank you to Ringwood’s students, families, faculty, administration, and staff for making the start of the school year the wonderful and welcoming experience it absolutely should be. Take care, Dr. Bernice
