Ridgemont Releases Highlights of Thursday Board of Education Meeting

Posted on September 25, 2020

We are happy to have students back in the building and we are moving forward with the 2020-2021 school year. Students are adjusting well to the changes and we are very impressed with their positive attitudes. Our staff has their minds on safety and learning and I cannot thank them enough for their determination to make this a great year for our students. Thank you to all parents for their cooperation as we are working on ways to make all of the pieces fit together and make it all work.

Also, as of September 24th, Hardin County has moved to orange or Level 2 on the Ohio Public Advisory Level System. This means that we will still be able to continue with face to face instruction.
