Principal Letter for March

Ritzman March Newsletter

Dear Families,

During these times of uncertainty with the COVID-19 and social distancing, we want everyone to stay positive and healthy. Since there are so many unknowns with the virus, Akron Public Schools has initiated an early Spring Break until April 3rd.  Please remind your children to wash their hands frequently and to keep them out of their eyes, nose and mouth.

From an educational position, all Students in grades KG through 5th should have their Chromebooks at home.  Students will be able to access their portal and on-line books and educational games. Some suggested site to keep your child learning include; Scholastic Learn at Home, Learning A-Z, PBS Learning Media, BrainPOP, NAT GEO 4 KIDS, Fun Brain, Starfall, Highlights Kids, ABCYA, Phonics Hero, Kids Discovery, ABC Mouse and Time For Kids.

Finally, beginning on Tuesday, March 17th Akron Public Schools will offer “grab and go” breakfast and lunch meals for children 18 and under at Ritzman and many Akron Public School building locations from 9:30-11:30 Monday through Friday.

If you have any questions or concerns about Akron schools, please refer to the main page on for the latest updates for parents and guardians. I am also available to answer emails at if the question is about Ritzman specifically.

Take care of yourself and your loved ones,

Mrs. M
