Welcome to Mountain Ridge High School
The school year is off to a great start! There is excitement in the halls and many great things going on within the school. There are a couple of things we would like to bring to your attention;
Traffic: We understand that it is difficult to get in and out of the parking lot in the mornings and at the end of school. We are currently in communication with Herriman City and Jordan District on ways that this can be improved. We apologize for this difficulty and we hope that we can make improvements for the future. In past years, the traffic has gotten better as time passed and routines established.
Dress Code: We strongly encourage you to review the dress code with your students. Click here to be directed to the district link. As a reminder, until further notice, hats/beanies are still not allowed.
Girls Wrestling: Attention Lady Sentinels! Do you like to challenge yourself? Are you interested in getting into the best shape of your life? Do you like to compete? Have we got a gig for you! Come join the Mountain Ridge All Girls Wrestling Team! An informational team meeting will be held Thursday September 2nd from 3-4pm in the Lecture Hall at Mountain Ridge High School. If you are interested in participating but will not be able to attend the meeting, please stop by Coach Birch’s room #2014 or see Coach Elder in the counseling center for information.
Parking: We have been distributing warning tickets for the cars that do not have parking permits. If your student is parking on campus and has not purchased a parking permit yet, please do so ASAP to avoid getting tickets.
School Community Council: If you are interested in being a member of the school community council, please click here and follow the instructions to join.
Safety: We held our first fire drill yesterday and everything went very well. We will be holding 5 more drills throughout the year including additional fire, shelter in place, lock down and earthquake drills.
Homecoming Week: Homecoming week will be September 7-11th. During this week there will be daily school activities along with a football tailgate, home football game and homecoming dance.
Friday Schedule: School starts at 8:30 am and is over at 1:00 pm. Classes are 55 minutes in length with 5 minutes of passing time between periods. We are aware that this is one minute less than the rest of the week, but we are in line with what all the other high schools are following. Lunch is 30 minutes on these days. From 1:00-2:00 pm we hold personalized learning time. During this time, any student is able to get help from their teachers. Teachers may also encourage students to come in for help in small groups and to make up NG's if applicable. If students do not need any help, they are free to go home after their class periods. For students who ride the bus, the pickup time is 2:00 pm.
Attendance Policy: Just a reminder that a student is allowed 2 unexcused absences and 3 tardies before their grade will change to a No Grade(NG). If a student has a No Grade(NG), they must get with the corresponding teacher to make up those missed days. As a reminder, parents have 10 days to excuse any absences from the date of the absence.
Thanks for all of your support!
