In recent years, Ridgecrest Elementary has made changes to improve traffic flow and safety during arrival and dismissal. We ask that children not arrive before 8:15 a.m. each day. No supervision is provided before that time.
Our number one priority is your child's safety! Thank you.
Parking can be tight at school-wide events so we ask you to plan ahead and arrive early. Parking is available next door at the YMCA in their back parking lot only. If all lots are full, please do not block vehicles or park on private property.
Improvements are also in the works for the car circle. There is now one car circle, located on the south side of the school, by the media center. Please follow all traffic signs during arrival and dismissal. Please have your child's name on a sign on your front windshield when picking up your child after school.
The bus circle has been extended from the administration building all the way to the multi-purpose room. This additional space allows buses to queue up, relieving some traffic from 119th Street.
Walkers will now be dismissed from the gate between the administration building and the cafeteria. Fencing has been added in front of the school to ensure safety. Those approaching or leaving the school on foot or bicycle should stay on the sidewalks and use the designated cross walks.
