Last week East Ridge students participated in Hour of Code.
The Kindergartners, 1st and 2nd graders did Lightbot coding and the 3rd, 4th and 5th graders did Dance Party coding.
Even though it's not Hour of Code anymore, kids can still do coding at home for free.

Parent Talk


Digital safety is a timely and important issue. Just last week, NSD sent an email to all families urging them to take an active role in keeping students safe online. Please consider sharing this free parent education event with your members and school community! This parent education event is being sponsored by Canyon Park MS PTSA, Skyview MS PTSA and Northshore Council.

School Parking Lot - Drop off & Pick Up


Click image to enlarge

Reminder: our parking lot traffic is one way lane (see the image below).

Safety First!
- ALWAYS use a crosswalk to cross in parking lot, whether you're alone or with your kid(s).
- SLOW DOWN. Speed limit is 25 mph on Saybrook and 216th Ave NE. School zone speed limit is 20 mph and parking lot speed limit is 5 mph.
- Do NOT drop off your kid(s) before 8:50 AM.


At pick-up and drop-off lane, remember:
- Pull ALL THE WAY FORWARD continuously so there are no gaps.
- Put down the cellphone.
- Do NOT get out of your car.
- Do NOT cut in line.
- If you're coming in during pick up time from Saybrook and there are cars waiting on the left side of the parking lot/ the car line is at fire hydrant (cross walk), please go around the parking lot.
- Move swiftly.

Traffic Volunteer Needed

Do you remember Billy Joe James, our amazing parking lot volunteer? We sure miss him, and many parents have commented about this, too! Billy Joe James was a constant figure at East Ridge for many years. He opened the school as our custodian and stayed on after retirement to volunteer for many years. You probably saw him in the parking lot directing traffic almost every day! Billy Joe has moved and we miss him. It also means we no longer have volunteer help directing traffic in the parking lot.

Here are two ways you can help:

  • Please follow the correct traffic pattern. If you enter our parking lot from Saybrook, please join the line of cars in the inner circle of the parking lot and wait your turn, rather than going straight to the drop off/pick up curb. (If there are no cars waiting in the loop, then you may proceed to the drop off/pick up curb.) Thank you! 
  • Volunteer! Would you like to help us in the parking lot? You can wear a cool vest! Stop in the office or call us to find out more!
