“Purpose for Today and Passion for Tomorrow”

A Note from Mrs. Noel Petrosky
Ridgway Area School District
Ridgway Area Middle/High School Principal

Wednesday, May 25, 2022

It is so hard to believe that this will be the last newsletter for the 2021-2022 school year. It has been a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with the staff and students of this district, and I look forward to next year.

LAST DAY OF SCHOOL: Students’ last day of school is June 2. They will be dismissed at 11:00 AM.

Summer School: Summer School will be held at FSG this year due to the construction at the Middle-High School. Students are allowed to complete no more than two courses. It will run from June 13-30 from 9:00 AM-2:00 PM Monday-Thursday. You must attend every day until you have successfully completed the course. There is also a cost of $125 per course, checks payable to RASD. Payment must be made prior to enrollment. Grades will be finalized with the completion of the final exam and the fourth quarter grades. We will notify parents on June 6 by phone to confirm if there is a need for summer school. We will need confirmation and payment of enrollment by June 8. Below are the requirements to qualify for summer school:

 As per the student handbook, to be considered to attend summer school, students must achieve a score of 65% for the year. Other criteria that will be considered will be the 85% attendance stipulation and academic skills based on the final exam score of 60% or higher. Students will be responsible for all costs and fees associated with summer school (approximately $125) and must abide by all guidelines outlined for summer school as well as earn a minimum of 70% in the summer course. If a student passes summer school, the highest course grade they will receive for the school year is 70%.
