• Dear Ridgecrest Families,

    Our students and staff are off to an incredible start!  This has been one of the smoothest starts to the school year in my professional experience.  I cannot wait to see all the great learning and growth your students will experience this year!  

    I am pleased to announce that we will be starting a breakfast program here at Ridgecrest beginning October 1. The program is called “Breakfast in a Bag” and will cost $2.45/student.  If your student qualifies for Free or Reduced lunch, breakfast will be free and no cost to your family.  We encourage families to apply for Free or Reduced lunch by going to .  Since the determination for free/reduced lunch is based not only on income, but also on the number of members in the family, many families are surprised to find out they qualify.  If you are not sure, try applying. It only takes a few minutes and it could save you a lot of money. 

    Breakfast will be served in the gym from 8:40-8:55 am Tuesdays-Fridays and 9:40-9:55 am on Mondays. Students will be allowed to bring food into the classrooms if they do not have time to finish eating before school starts.

    Also, we need all Ridgecrest families to update their student’s enrollment information online through the Home Access Center (HAC). If you don’t have one already set up, you will first need to set up your HAC account.  Once you do that, you can update your child’s enrollment by following these steps:

    1.       Go to Ridgecrest Elementary home page

    2.       Under the Families tab select “Home Access Center”

    3.       Log in – if you need to reset your password contact our office

    4.       Choose the tab that says “Registration”

    5.       Choose the tab that says “Update Registration”

    6.       Choose “New”.  On the following screen, be sure to select “Show All Sections”

    7.       Make any changes and save.  If there are no changes necessary, you will still need to save the form.

    8.       At the bottom of the page be sure to select “I Agree” and then “Submit”.

    We look forward to seeing you all at Ridgecrest soon.  Fall conferences are set for October 24, 25, and 26.  Please do not hesitate to call us anytime if you have questions or concerns.  We are here to serve you!  Go Raiders!

    In service,

  • Mrs. Fox
