Good Morning, East Ridge Families!

Today we continue our online learning! We were so impressed with the participation yesterday. Way to go, East Ridge kids and families! Here is a link to our East Ridge Keeps Learning site: https://sites.google.com/apps.nsd.org/eastridgekeepslearning/home. Don’t forget to have your child check in every day for attendance. If your child is sick, or if your child will be unable to participate in remote learning today, please call our attendance line at (425) 408-4410 to excuse his/her absence. 

Important reminder! As a parent, if you want access to any of the google sites, Google Classroom, Zoom, etc, you need to sign in with your child’s school google account. Your child’s school Google email follows this format: studentID@apps.nsd.org. Your child should know his/her password. 


We understand that families have varied schedules and arrangements for child care and that students have varied levels of support during the day. As long as your child checks in for attendance on our site some time during the day, they will not be marked absent. Please stay in touch with your child's classroom teacher regarding how we can help make learning accessible for your child. Please also reach out to me if there is anything I can do to support your family.

If you are experiencing technical issues, please call 425-408-7669.  This line is monitored from 7AM to 7PM M-F.

ERPTA Musical

Due to school closures and public health crisis recommendations, ticket sales for the musical have been suspended while we review the feasibility of our existing dates. Please know that we will do all we can to complete our program if and when conditions allow for us to do so safely. We thank you for your patience as we consider our options and continue to listen to the advice of NSD and King County leadership. 
 
The cast, crew, and volunteers of this program have put their heart and souls into it and while our future is unclear at this point in time, please know that we've already accomplished something really amazing together this year that we should feel very proud of. We very much hope we'll be able to find a satisfying way to perform all of our hard work; we just aren't sure what that will look like under the current constraints and we appreciate your continued support. We will update everyone when more information is available.
