Student Drop Off & Pick Up at Ridge Circle
Most students at Ridge Circle walk to school or get dropped off by their parents/guardians. When dropping your child off for school in the morning or after school, it is important to use the "turn around" in the back of the building. The turn around is located at the back entrance off Streamwood Boulevard. Buses use Ridge Circle Street to drop off and pick up students before and after school. It is very important that parents do not park or wait for their child on Ridge Circle Street. Please help us be a good neighbor by keeping Ridge Circle Street clear as possible of parked/waiting cars. We appreciate your help with this in advance!
