Attn student spectators: One area of improvement that we have found to be necessary during this time is to ask that all students sit with their family. The student cheering section prohibits us from adequately distancing. We ask that all students comply and continue to use proper social distancing measures (more than 6' apart) to reduce the number of close contacts a student may encounter.

ATTN ALL High School and Middle School Students participating in weights and conditioning: It has come to our attention that several area schools have had to shut down these same activities for the next 2 weeks due to multiple students testing positive for COVID-19. Some of these schools include Warrensburg, Pleasant Hill, Clinton and Harrisonville. In order for Crest Ridge to return to weights and conditioning activities tomorrow, it is imperative that every student and adult follow the Johnson County Health Department Guideline by maintaining a physical distance of 6’ or more. When this condition cannot be met, whether it be indoors or outdoors, a face covering that effectively covers the mouth and nose must be worn. We want everyone to be able to participate in these healthy and important events but at this time, it is important to consider the health of those around you. If a student or adult cannot follow these guidelines, they will be asked to leave the activity. If you feel sick or are running a fever, STAY HOME. Please notify your coach or the school immediately if you are required to get tested for COVID-19 or test positive for COVID-19. Many of these shut-downs have come after private gatherings of many students without regard to the health guidelines. Again, please take these measures seriously so that we can continue the summer weights and conditioning program. This situation will be monitored daily. Thank you for your cooperation. Sincerely, Linda Heishman Activities Director

Parents of elementary kids, check out the "News" session on the app for info about a potential summer school and a quick survey. This info is for kids who will be in grades 1-5 for the 20-21 school year.
In some unfortunate news, prom at Milestones Barn on June 26 cannot occur as planned. Even if health guidance loosens at mid-month, physical distancing is very likely to still be a required element—this cannot be accommodated at a dance. My apologies.
Graduation News! After meeting with the events staff and touring Hendricks Hall, we have a plan to have family groups of 9 using physical distancing (graduate plus 8). We will release seating maps at a later time.
It's that time of year again to update and verify your student athletes health information on PRIVIT. This must be done each year. The physical is still good for 2 years but must be pulled from the archived documents to active documents. Please double check the date as it will expire on the 2 year anniversary. Instructions for returning athletes: http://5il.co/3l84
Graduation Info: Confirmed 7/11 at 2pm--Hendricks Hall (UCM). Under current guidance, graduates will be allowed to sit with 5 family members. We are making arrangements for a video live stream and will update if health guidance changes.
