Will my equipment be safe during the day?
Equipment is stored in a secure locked room during the school day. Students will not have access to this equipment during the school day so anything they need for school needs to be taken with them.
How will my equipment make it onto the buses?
All equipment is packed onto the buses by Snow Club Board Members before students are let out from school. Students will be informed what bus their equipment is on by the first letter of their last name.
My child doesn't attend Ridgely Middle School. How do they get their equipment on the bus?
New for 2018 Season - We will be sending a bus to pick up students from Cockeysville Middle School. At dismissal time please take your jackets, backpacks, etc and proceed directly to the bus parked on Greenside Drive- please be sure to utilize the crosswalk- DO NOT cut through the buses!! The bus will be leaving promptly at 2:40- please get to the bus quickly- the bus will depart for RMS where it will pick up additional students- for this reason it is important that students sit two per seat and fill seats starting from the back forward- please leave the front rows empty so the RMS students are able to board quickly. NOTE THAT ALL BUSES WILL RETURN TO RIDGELY MIDDLE SCHOOL!
Other non-Ridgely students can drop off equipment in the morning from 7:30 am to 8:15 am at the Gymnasium lobby of the Charmuth parking lot or they can bring their equipment in the afternoon to load onto the buses between 2:40 pm to 3:00 pm. It is important that we DO NOT BLOCK TRAFFIC IN THE CHARMUTH PARKING LOT because the Ridgely Middle School buses have to get through in the afternoon.
