Eagle Ridge Junior High

Frigid temps lead to broken water pipe

Frigid weather resulted in a broken water pipe at Eagle Ridge Junior High overnight on Sunday, Jan. 5. The damaged pipe was located in the lower level boiler room, and water flowed into the nearby gymnasium. Physical education classes will be relocated to other parts of the school until the gym is back in service.

Jeff Hammer honored as TIES Exceptional Teacher

Eagle Ridge Junior High science teacher Jeff Hammer was one of two District 191 educators named TIES 2013 Exceptional Teachers. Along with Sky Oaks teacher Melanie Bryant, Hammer was honored during the TIES Education Technology Conference in December.

The award is for teachers who model best practices in using technology in their classrooms to engage students in learning.


Be Prepared for School Cancelations

With the snow season just around the corner, it is important for all parents and families to check and update their School View contact information. District 191 uses the contact information you provide to communicate school closing and other emergency and non-emergency events via automated phone calling system - SchoolMessenger. In the event of an emergency, the system will call Home, Cell, and preferred number (listed under Pager Number). For non-emergency communications the preferred number (listed under Pager Number) is used.

E-News is Changing: Be sure you're getting the information you want

Our school is updating the way we send e-newsletters to parents. Starting in August 2013, instead of using a separate messaging system, we're going to use the email addresses already provided by parents through their students' health and emergency forms. This way, there's only one account for you (and us) to maintain.
