The easiest way to report an absence is for parents to simply send an email to: 

Parents who keep their children home on a school day must contact the school by 8:30 a.m. Parents may email the Ridges Attendance account at or leave a voicemail on the Edy Ridge Attendance Line at (503) 825-5710. If the school does not hear from parents by 8:30 a.m., the main office or an automated system will call parents at home.

To provide proper supervision, students should not arrive at school before 7:45 a.m. Do not leave your child unattended on the school campus. Parents whose schedules do not match the school’s hours of operation must arrange for the supervision of their own children. A list of child care providers is available in the Ridges main office.
