Update for tomorrow

 North Ridge Elementary

Dear Parents,

Due to a special event in the Raleigh area, Falls of Neuse Road will be closed periodically between 1 and 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 18. This closure will impact your ability to access our campus from Falls of Neuse Road. 

Please plan to arrive and dismiss using an alternate route if you usually access the campus from Falls of Neuse. Please plan accordingly and use caution and patience during carpool dismissal tomorrow. 

Our buses will continue to run their routes (with potential detours). Please use the Here Comes the Bus app to track your student’s bus. 

Let us know if you have questions, and thank you in advance for your support and flexibility.


Travis Shillings, Principal
