RBS Principal’s Notes
December 22, 2017
Happy Snow Day! I know this day put a wrench in some people’s plans, but I hope you were able to enjoy this extra day at home with your children! For those of you who are counting, this is day #3, which brings us to June 18th for the tentative last day of school.
From the staff of Riddle Brook School, we would like to wish all of our families a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! It’s always a bittersweet time when the holidays come to a close for the year, but it’s also nice to enjoy some relaxing time with families and friends. Have a wonderful week, and we will see you in the New Year (January 2nd)!
IN THE NEWS:
RBS Directory Cover Contest Winners

Thank you to all of our families who donated winter coats, boots, etc. We will be donating them to Families in Transition.
What are those Numbers in the Windows?
Parents may have noticed that classrooms across the district now have numbers posted in their exterior windows. Those signs are a part of the Bedford School District Incident Command System (ICS). ICS is the nationwide emergency planning protocol established by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The numbers would allow emergency responders to quickly identify classrooms from outside of the building.
