Principal Letter for January

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to January!  It is so hard to believe that winter break is over and 2020 has begun! We truly hope that everyone had a safe and relaxing winter vacation!  This school year is going by so quickly and Spring Break will be here before we know it. We are excited for a new year, there is a sense of excitement. Once again, we are so grateful for all the students, parents, and staff that focus on our excellent teaching and learning on a daily basis.


Winter is here and snow is coming! There is a chance for extremely dangerous snow covered roads. Plan a few extra minutes during these winter months to get safely to and around Ritzman CLC. As the snow piles up, the streets and parking lot can become more difficult to maneuver. Be aware of the proper places for dropping off students and parking during winter.  In the event of snow days, listen for an all call or school closings on the local news.  If the forecast calls for bad weather, please be sure to tune in to local radio or television stations in the morning so that you will be aware of any delays, early closings or cancellations that may be made.  Notices are issued as early as possible by the Superintendent after consultation with the highway department and the bus company. The district’s All Call system will be used to send a phone message. Please know the decision is made with safety as the primary concern.

Other events this month:

Final Day of Marking Period 2 is Thursday January 16th  

No School for students on Friday January 17th and Monday January 20th. 

PTO is presenting COSI- Energy on Tuesday January 21st.

Perfect Attendance Breakfast on Friday, January 31st at 8:00 a.m.


Finally, the month of January is a busy one with the first semester ending on January 16th. Continue to check home access to ensure your child has complete their homework and has all assignments turned in. If you have any concerns about your child's progress and/or grades, please contact their homeroom teacher as soon as possible. 

As always, feel free to call the school with any questions or concerns at 330-761-7903.
