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 of serving as your school principal for 2022-23 school year.  I am very excited to be back for my second year at Ridgeview, a school with a wonderful team of dedicated staff members and a community of caring families and in my biased opinion, the best students!

There are many exciting things to look forward to this year, including a return of volunteering, family and community events and many others including a second year of free breakfast and lunch for all students! Watch your email for more info.


Back to School Info:

Meet the Teacher Night: Tuesday, Sept. 6th 4:30 - 5:30, Class lists will be posted on Friday Sept. 2nd by 4:00pm.

- Families with last names starting with A - M please come 4:30 - 5:00 and families with last names starting with N - Z, please come 5:00 - 5:30 if possible. This will minimize the number of people in the classrooms at one time, providing you and your students with a safe and more accessible experience. Thank you!

    • Walkers and bikes:
      • Cul-de-sacs access, North and West sides around the school can be used for students walking or biking to school only. Please do not use these for vehicle drop off and pick up as it blocks access for families who live in these locations. Thanks for understanding being a good neighbor.
    • Safe hand off:
      • Please walk with your k-2 students to the classroom or send them with an older student.
  • Before and After School Options: For the 22/23 school year, our partnership with Willamalane will continue. We are thankful for them!

Thank you for all you do to make this school and community a wonderful place to work, live and serve. Ridgeview is a special place and it is appreciated. We love our students and their families and are looking forward to a fun, exciting and successful 22/23 school year.

With all appreciation and humility,
