Dear Ritzman Family,

Happy St. Patty’s Day! This week has been so wonderful. It has lifted everyone’s spirit in Ritzman to see and interact with children.

We’ve had a few minor “bumps in the road”, so I wanted to send a few reminders.

Breakfast will be served between 8:00am and 8:25 am. If students are eating breakfast, they will enter door #8 at 8:00 am. ONLY students that are eating breakfast should arrive at 8:00. Do Not Drop Students off prior to 8:00am.


At 8:15am, students who are not eating breakfast may be dropped off at the curb and will enter through the main door, #1. They will walk straight to their classroom. Do not arrive before 8:15am.

DISMISSAL procedures are getting better. The MOST important thing that will help with dismissal is for students to know the plan for pick up at dismissal. You should tell your child in the morning of the plan.  If there is an emergency change of plans, call Ritzman’s Main Office prior to 2:00pm. Calls should not be made after 2:00pm for messages to give to students. Here are a few reminders for dismissal. 

  • Ritzman’s Main Parking Lot will be closed in the afternoons at first. No one should enter the parking lot until 2:30pm and after Daycare vehicles leave. No parking lot entry Office entry after 2:00 pm.

  • Adult drivers should not come to school prior to 2:30 pm. When entering Ritzman’s parking lot after 2:30, enter coming from the Ellett  & Trenton Ave side, not Albrecht.  All drivers will be picking up students from the main curb (like arrival)  by driving through our parking lot after walkers and daycare students are dismissed.  All parent drivers must have a placard on their dashboard or in their possession before students will be released. If an adult is picking up multiple students, the placards for each student must be displayed on the dashboard or in possession. No exceptions!


  • Please be patient in the car line, display your school issued placard, and stay alert to other cars and pedestrians.  Thanks for your help to keep all of our students and families safe!

The only other new item is from PTO. Here is an updated flyer for their fundraiser, Egg by Yard. What a wonderful surprise for your child or even a relatives’ home. If you have any questions, please email PTO at [email protected]


Everyone really has been amazing and helpful these 2 weeks as we are transitioning back. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

Love Ya Much!   Mrs. M   💓
