To the Editor: Parents of Ridge students need to know about next year

The end of another school year is fast approaching and with it the closing of another Bowling Green city school. The superintendent and the school board have had an extra year to prepare for the closure of Ridge School and it is my hope (as well as that of many Ridge School families) that they have planned wisely and will treat the staff, families, and students with kindness and respect in every aspect of this move. Everyone throughout the city has been aware that with the school district now consisting of three elementary schools instead of six that new district lines will have had to have been created. I'm sure that wasn't a quick or easy task.
When Milton Center School closed the students and their families were notified at the end of the school year which school they would be attending and were given the opportunity to visit those schools. Although there were probably mixed feelings from some of the students and families this gave them time to make adjustments, personal and logistic, that were necessary for the coming school year.
Having two grandchildren who attend Ridge and having grown close to many of the students during my time volunteering in the library I sincerely trust that the same courtesy will be shown to the Ridge students and families as well as any other students that may be facing having to change schools due to realigned district lines. Waiting until school starts makes this transition harder and more stressful.
I would urge any family that is concerned about this issue to contact Ridge School principal Joe Morgan, BG Superintendent Ann McVey or a member of the BGCS school board. I am sure that we can all help make the 2013-2014 school year as successful as this school year has been.
