Last Day of School May 22 for Ritenour Students
The Ritenour Board of Education unanimously voted to remove six virtual learning days from the 2020-2021 school calendar at its meeting on May 7, 2020. The last day for virtual learning in the Ritenour School District is now Friday, May 22.

“Students and teachers should be commended for their perseverance in continued teaching and learning during our unprecedented closure,” said Ritenour Superintendent Dr. Chris Kilbride. “At the same time, we recognize that the challenges and stress of remote learning are impacting parents and guardians as much as they are students and teachers. We believe that making May 22 the last day for virtual instruction is a positive decision for our students, families and staff.”
Originally, the last day of school was Tuesday, June 2 for students.
All Ritenour buildings and offices remain closed. Plans are being made for teachers to pack classrooms and for families to pick up student items left in buildings before the COVID-19 pandemic closure in March. Those plans will be shared with staff and families as soon as possible.
In addition, Ritenour will be offering a virtual Summer Academy for selected students. Summer Academy will take place Monday through Thursday from June 3 - July 2. Schools are currently identifying potential Summer Academy students, confirming participation with students and parents, and working through the instructional details. Those families will be contacted prior to the beginning of summer school.
Ritenour will continue to provide meals to students through the summer months until further notice. Meals will continue to be dropped off by buses throughout the district on Monday and Wednesday morning. Click here for more information and view this link for a list of meal drop off locations.
