A main water line is being repaired in the Town or Ridgway. The District currently has no water at either school building. Therefore, we will need to close school for the rest of the day. I have spoken with Ouray County Director of Public Health, Tanner Kingery, and he supports this decision. The water in town will be up and running by 6pm this evening, so this only impacts today. Transportation and Pick Up: Parents who can pick up their children from school at this time, please do so. If you have an emergency contact picking up your child, please contact the school office to let them know: Elementary: 970-626-5468, Secondary: 970-626-5788 We will run a regular bus route at 1:45 pm today. We currently have our MS students out in the parks learning about water (the irony) so our full bus fleet and drivers can be available at 1:45. Students that need to take the 1:45 pm bus route will have plenty of drinking water and adult supervision. We have porta-potties available at both campuses. We appreciate your support in this unusual situation. School resumes as normal tomorrow, April 28th. Thank you, Susan Lacy, Superintendent
HS GIRLS SOCCER GAME UPDATE: From Shawnn Row, Athletic Director - I just wanted to let you know that we are going to have to cancel our home game with Crested Butte for this Friday.

Today's HS basketball games with Dolores have been cancelled. Their transportation department didn't feel comfortable driving with the road conditions and avalanche mitigation work being done around Ophir. We are sorry for any inconvenience and will let you know when we found a suitable make up date.
Ridgway School District wishes you a bright and beautiful holiday season! The District will be closed beginning at 3pm on Friday, December 23rd, and will reopen on Tuesday, January 10th at 8am.
Ridgway Secondary School has recently re-finished our gym floor and is in the process of decorating with new sports banners for our walls as we had to part ways with “Sparky the Demon”. This means we had to take down our business banners that hung in the gym too. Business banners have always been a great way to advertise to your local community members and surrounding schools that visit. It is also a great way to support our athletics programs to help provide new jerseys, team gear, supplies, and to provide a memorable experience for our student-athletes. In the past, we even had families who wanted to donate money and support our programs. So, you don’t need to be associated with any particular business to have a banner made. First-time banner fees are $250 to cover the cost of making the banner. Each year after that we will ask for a $125 fee to continue hanging your banner in the gym for that calendar year. So, if your business or family would like to have a banner hung up in our gym, please email Athletic Director, Shawnn Row at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information: Name/Title of Business Subtext and/or message JPEG of the business logo (optional) Banners will not be made until they are paid for, so please drop off a check at the front office at RSS or mail it to 1200 Green St., Ridgway, CO. Deadline for payments for banner production for the 2023 year will be Tuesday, December 12.
