The New York State Education Department has asked school districts to survey and provide information on the "digital health" of school districts in regards to device and internet access for families. Below you will find a link to a short Ripley Google survey that we ask you to please fill out for each of our students. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScBLmDyT4ZMCYlqp4C7_VGKe26WeuzlRgwn2eAOD8iQ6KDNyg/viewform

Good evening. This is Ripley Central School District calling to notify parents and guardians that tomorrow we will practice our lockdown procedures as part of our routine safety program. During this time, students and staff will participate in a drill to secure the building and to shelter in place. This is only a drill and will likely take no more than 15 minutes. To learn more about a lockdown, visit the district website, www.ripleycsd.org. Select the Resources heading, then Parent/Student Resources, to read “What Is a Lockdown?” Thank you.
Reminder: Mum pickup is today at 2:30 pm at the RCS Bus Garage. We ask that you please practice social distancing guidelines and wear your masks. Thank you.
Supply Lists have been updated on our website and App. We will begin mailing out welcome back packets first thing next week. Have a great weekend!
Reminder: There will be a PK3 and PK4 Parent Meeting this evening (8/20) @ 6:30. A Zoom invitation will be added to the RCS news feed this afternoon (RipleyCSD.org or the Ripley CSD app). The AM / PM Form will be added to both sites following the meeting.
Our reopening plan is posted to our website (RipleyCSD.org) in the news section.
