Demonstrate ER Expectations to Our Neighbors

Please be courteous to our neighbors! Do not block driveways, walkways, or intersections. Please use the school parking lot for drop off and pick up. We are hearing about more and more incidents due to driveways in the neighborhoods being blocked by parked cars and cars speeding through the neighborhood.

Please demonstrate our East Ridge Expectations Pillars: Being Kind, Being Respectful, Being Responsible, and Being Safe!

At ER we will be kind, responsible, respectful, safe

Outdoor Learning Area

Thanks to our PTA Auction last year, which raised $11,000 for the "Fund A Need," and thanks to the NSD Support Services Department for their help with clearing and preparing the space, we now have an outdoor learning area with 10 picnic benches (6 assembled so far) that can be used for outdoor activities and learning. Students must be supervised in this area. It is not open during recess.

COVID Communication

The Department of Health (DOH) requires schools to inform families and students about COVID-19 case numbers and potential outbreaks. Last week, there were two confirmed cases at our school. The accuracy of our data depends on self-reporting. Thank you for continuing to let the school know if your child tests positive for COVID-19. To view additional information, including school and district trends visit the District’s COVID-19 data dashboard. The dashboard is updated weekly on Monday evenings.

If your child is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 keep them home and test for COVID-19. Families can order free COVID-19 tests from the state. Together, we can keep our schools healthy and safe.
