Saturday's football game at Gilchrist will start at 11 am instead of the originally scheduled 1 pm start. This was due to smoke and heat concerns. Gilchrist would also like to let people know that they will be providing hot dogs to people who attend. Masks will also be required for people who are not socially distanced.

Dear Riddle School District Community, Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work together during this challenging time. We are writing today to inform you of some updated dates for the start of school. Due to a seismic retrofitting project, Riddle Junior High and High School will be delaying the first day of school until Tuesday, September 7 for 7th graders and Wednesday, September 8 the 8th-12th grades will begin. Due to Covid-19 exposures within the district, the elementary school will be delaying the start of their school year to Monday, September 13. If you have any questions regarding your student’s school schedule, please call the school office. Upon in-person instruction, we will follow and maintain the Oregon Health Authority and the Oregon Department of Education guidelines; namely practicing handwashing, physical distancing, cleaning and disinfecting protocols, along with requiring people to wear facial coverings while inside buildings. When appropriate, we will conduct health screenings. We will continue to keep updated on guidelines and communicate those guidelines to our community. We realize this information is difficult, but I feel it is important for you to be informed about what is happening. Your support means so much. Thank you. Sincerely, Dave Gianotti Riddle School District Superintendent

Invitation to Join Riddle High School Volleyball (first team practice is Monday, August 16 in the RES gym at 6 p.m.) from Head Coach Shantelle Weakley: Our volleyball season is right around the corner, and I wanted to reach out to personally invite you to join our team and give you some important information and dates about our upcoming season. Regardless of your experience or skill level, I welcome you. We will be focusing this year on building our skills and strengthening the team atmosphere, so if you are ready to (1) make the commitment to volleyball, (2) bring intensity, focus and energy to practices, and (3) demonstrate enthusiasm on the court, we will be thrilled to have you in the program. Building a successful team requires good leaders among the players. I will be relying on our returning players to establish a fun but focused culture among our group of new and returning athletes. Like any competitive event, you should anticipate ups and downs over the course of the season. We want to maximize the ups and minimize the downs. To do this, I will expect that each player demonstrates both good leadership and support, makes developing resilience a team goal, and seeks opportunities to build camaraderie among all teammates. Our first team practice is this coming Monday, August 16, 2021, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. While our high school gym is undergoing construction, we will be practicing in the elementary school gym. The elementary hallways are closed due to waxing, so you will need to enter through the back locker rooms closest to the elementary cafeteria/locker rooms/primary wing playground area. The easiest access is through the back parking lot by DR Johnson Lumber Company. I also want to point out, especially to our incoming freshman, because not everyone is aware, that high school fall sports begin before school actually starts. Our first competition is at the Glendale Jamboree on Friday, August 27, and our first game is on the first day of school on August 31 at Pacific. OSAA requires that volleyball athletes participate in a minimum number of practices before being able to play in a contest. Sports physicals are required every 2 years, so if you are due for one, please make sure you have it as soon as possible. I will hand out athletic packets during practice on Monday, and we will need for you to have them filled out and returned quickly. Be sure you sign up with our team on the Remind App to be informed about team events and announcements. Text @riddlevb to 81010 and you’ll be added to the list! You can also sign up to be a member on our Riddle Irish Volleyball Facebook page found at https://www.facebook.com/riddleirishvolleyball/ and our private team Facebook group, search for Riddle Girls Volleyball. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach me through REMIND, or you may text, call, or email me. I look forward to meeting you all at our first practice on August 16. Shantelle Weakley (Cell: 541-784-8405 - Email: shantelleweakley@charter.net)

Volleyball invitation from Head Coach Shantelle Weakley
Greetings! As most of you have heard, Riddle will be opening up in-person this fall, K-7 starting on Aug. 30, 8-12 on Aug. 31. Currently all staff/students are mandated by State law to wear masks indoors during school hours and while on buses (no masks required outdoors). Riddle will not be offering on-line options this year (due to 70% fail rate). If online options are preferred, speak to the building office for options. We are excited to be open this fall and while the masks are inconvenient, they are a small price to pay for our students being here in-person. Stay positive, safe, and kind.
