    Kinder families we are welcoming students A-L on Wednesday the 8th and M - Z students Thursday the 9th. See you then!

    Here are few other important details to review:

    -Class Lists are posted today Friday the 3rd at 4:00pm on our front doors for grades 1st - 5th.
    -Class Lists for Kinder will happen the following Friday the 10th at 4:00 after our two days to get to know your student.
    -No changes to walking or biking to school from previous years.
    -Parent Drop off will use the parking along the street and the parking lot across the street at the church. We appreciate their partnership!
    -All students being dropped off need to use the sidewalks and crosswalks to access the school. Please do let your student cross anywhere else, it creates a lot of risk for injury with the business of drop off and pick up.

    -The parking lot on our campus is for staff only. Thank you.
    -School Supplies will come to school with your student on the first day. If you want to assist your student with carrying supplies please park in the parking lot across street and come on over. We do ask that all people on campus where a mask.

  • Parents, 

    Please note there is a change to our student drop off and pick up procedure for this upcoming year. This will be only for the 2021 SY! Please review the map and we appreciate your teamwork and patience as we adjust to our new procedure!

    A few important contextual details about the change:

    • We are very fortunate to be getting a new covered play structure!
    • Our new covered play structure prevents us from using the playground as a bus loading zone.
    • The School District and City are working to design an new, drop off and pick up system! 
    • This new system will not be in place until the 2022 school year.
    • When we are all done with our process we will have a covered play area and a new and improved parking and drop off system!!

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation and know we will be out there with you supporting the safe transition of our amazing Ridgeview students.

Ridgeview Principal Corner

  • Welcome to Ridgeview Elementary

    Posted by Wayne Reposa on 8/20/2021

    Hello Ridgeview Families,


    My Name is Wayne Reposa and I have the privilege to serve as your school principal starting this 2021-2021 school year.  I am very excited to be back in the Springfield School District and with the wonderful staff and students here at Ridgeview!

    A quick bit about myself and my family. I am returning to the Springfield School District after 11 years, during which time; I served as a professor of teacher education, a k-8 principal and middle school principal. I started my career in education working as a 4th and 5th grade teacher at Maple Elementary.  My wife Holly has been a teacher in the district for more than 20 years and is a teacher at Walterville Elementary. I have two adult aged kids. My son Sam is an assistant manager at Dutch Bro’s and my daughter Emma will be a freshman at the U of O this fall,  studying teacher education with a focus on music education this fall. 

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Back to School Info!

    Parents and Guardians,

    As we head into the new school year here are a few important details for us to get off to a great start along with some exciting news!

    Commitment to having students back in our schools: 

    As I met with our district leadership it is great to see the commitment to our students getting the best education possible and we believe that for most students that will be in our buildings fulltime and that is what we are planning and preparing for!

    Somethings to be excited about this fall:

    • P.E and Music instruction returns!
    • Recess and lunch time with grade level friends 
    • New covered Play Area allows for more outside play, year around!
    • School events many will be able to happen with appropriate precautions and based on current case numbers in Lane county (more details per event to come)
    • Students will get a complete comprehensive educational experience.
    • Direct student services from our community partners returns.
    • We hope to open our doors to visitors as soon as our Lane County numbers come back down! Staff miss having you in the school too! 

    To make that possible there will be a few things we will need to make this happen: These are based on the Oregon Health Authority guidelines and will be in place across the district.

    • Limiting student to student and student to staff physical contact. 
    • Students will be 3 ft apart from each other.
    • Masks will be required of all students and staff while inside the school.
    • Everyone helps each other stay safe, healthy and are flexible as we navigate this important process.

    *Important* Please note our goal is to get our students back to school, but we can’t do this alone. As numbers in Oregon and Lane County continue to change, we will monitor and adjust to provide the best possible educational experience while keeping everyone safe. Thank you for your help and support with this important goal. It is appreciated!

     

    Options for all our students:

    As much as we would love to see every student here on campus we also understand that what might be best for your student and your family may not be our on campus option. The district has made a commitment to provide two online options for our students this fall:

     

    SPS ONLINE has been a virtual program in our district for many years. This is a primarily asynchronous program with independent pacing and supports including virtual check-in, monthly drop in sessions, and online support. This is available K-12. SPS ONLINE supports state standard requirements. Secondary offerings are taught by SPS staff. Elementary offerings are taught by outside instructors.

     

    BRATTAIN ONLINE is a blended program that offers daily live synchronous online instruction for core classes, in addition to opportunities for self-guided, self-paced instruction for K-12 who live in Springfield School District Boundaries. All other subject areas will be provided asynchronously. The elementary program provides daily care and connection opportunities in support of social skills, school readiness, and meaningful connections. Brattain Online uses the same learning targets and standards as our brick & mortar schools. Curriculum in core subject areas will be designed and taught by SPS staff.

     

    Students and families will have the opportunity to transfer according to our district transfer processes in alignment with grading timelines at the quarter, trimester, or semester.
