Welcome to ECOLE East ridge community school

East Ridge Community School is located on the east side of Owen Sound, near Georgian College.  Our school offers classes from JK to Grade 8 both in the English and French Immersion streams

October 2021,

Welcome October!

Our adventure is on its way and we have had a full September. Our school routines have been established and students are working hard on their academics, building their learning skills and knowledge to continue to expand during the year.

It has been wonderful to have our students in person for learning and to see a return of extracurriculars.

Soccer and Cross Country started in September and will continue into the fall. Intramurals for our intermediate students are beginning this week as are some of our clubs like EcoSchools. We are following our COVID protocols for these activities. Activities will continue to expand as the year progresses.

Our SCC is gearing up for a busy school year. With the return of activities, the SCC committees are getting ready for different activities. If you are interested in volunteering in these committees, please contact the committee leads directly. The pizza committee will be sending order forms home soon!

This fall we will be offering school clothing orders as well. We will be using SchoolCash Online for all school purchases. If you need assistance, please call the school.

We hope our students, staff, and families have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend later this month!

Hi Everyone,

It is so wonderful to have our students back in person!  The morning of the first day always seems a bit chaotic at a large school, but all of our students got to their classes and our day started very positively.  A few reminders, when you are dropping off your children in the morning, you are welcome to stay and watch until their class heads inside.  We just need families to wait on the sidewalk along the parking lot.  Unfortunately, with bus students, staff and transfer students from other schools, it really causes a lot of congestion to have parents standing there.  You are welcome to stay on the sidewalk along the parking lot instead. 

Just a reminder that buffs or "gators" are not approved as masks, we can provide a mask if needed.

All students are required to be screened at home for symptoms of COVID-19 for the next two weeks.  You can access the screener at https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/ If you require a paper copy, please send a note with your child.

Students in Kindergarten to grade 3 - we have printed the attestation of screening. Please sign it every morning. 

Students in Grades 4-8 - Staff will do a quick check asking students if they completed the screener.

Any student who hasn't completed the screener, will be followed up by the office.  

If you have questions, please reach out to the school.
