The Board accepted the retirement of Greg Johnson, effective May 28, 2021. Mr. Johnson has been with the district for 35 years as Physical Education Teacher and various coaching positions. Mr. Johnson stepped up by taking Golf Team Coach when no one applied, to keep a team going and has held that position since. The Board would like to thank Mr. Johnson for his 35 years of service to the Ridgemont students.

One teacher substitute from the MRESC was approved and we are still asking for those interested to contact us to become a teacher substitute.
