    Forgotten Items at Home

    In an effort to reduce interruptions to instructional time, as well as promote responsibility and accountability with our students, Sunset Ridge will only allow eye glasses, water bottles, medically required items and lunches to be dropped off for students. Forgotten homework assignments, backpacks, PE uniforms, sports equipment, projects and musical instruments will not be accepted or held in the office for students.
