Reminder: Background Check Required For All Volunteers

Don’t forget that all school volunteers must have a background check at the start of every school year. Get it taken care of now so you are ready to volunteer as early as week 1!

·      If you had a background check last year, the process is easier because you are already in the FWISD system.

Construction Alert!

Many Ridglea Hills neighborhood streets leading to the school are currently under construction. Here are some tips for your consideration:

·      Consider driving your route to school this week to see if adjustments need to be made.

·      Find alternative routes for possible closures during the first few weeks of school.

·      Allow extra time to get to school.

·      Be patient with carpool and traffic related to the construction.

·      The city has informed the school that Clayton Road West construction should be complete by the end of October, weather permitting. Some portions may be finished as early as mid-September.

·      Side streets leading to the school should be cleaned up by the city this week for easier traffic flow.


Thank you, and drive carefully!
