Parent/Teacher Conferences

Virtual Parent/Teacher conferences will be held the week of October 26th.  Parents please complete the Google Form questionnaire by October 20th to help teachers schedule conferences.  The parents will then be able to select their preference for a phone conference, a video conference (Google Meets or Microsoft Teams), an email conference, or no conference if there are no current questions or concerns for teachers.  Please check your child’s current grades and missing assignments in Teacherease before filling out this form.  Also, you may want a list of your child’s teachers handy while filling out the form. (These can be found in Skyward, Teacherease, or your child’s Google Classroom).  It is extremely important that all parents fill out this form for each student they have here at North Ridge.  This year is very different - but one thing remains the same, we want your child to succeed!

Erin’s Law
Erin’s Law is named after childhood sexual assault survivor, author, speaker and activist Erin Merryn. Erin’s Law (in Illinois, Public Act 96-1524) mandates that Illinois public schools provide training to certified staff on prevention of child sexual abuse. It also mandates that public school children pre-kindergarten through 12th grade be educated on how to protect themselves from sexual abuse. Students learn age-appropriate techniques to recognize child sexual abuse and tell a trusted adult. School personnel learn about child sexual abuse. Any questions or concerns can be addressed by building administrators, guidance counselors or school social workers.
