Go Yellowjackets!

Ricardo Independent School District is a small rural district located less than 150 miles north of the Mexican border that was founded in the early 1900’s.  At the time of its founding, it served widely scattered farm children and children whose parents worked along the railroad.  As time passed, a larger town with a population of almost 30,000 developed to our north, and Ricardo continues to serve a largely rural community.   Over the last 100 years we have grown from a small unsophisticated district to a district serving a PK-8 student population of over 700.  We are a 100% Google Apps For Education district incorporating 425 chrome devices which include 17 carts averaging 20 chromebooks per cart and an elementary computer lab equipped with 26 chromebases.  All of our classrooms have four student desktop computers, a teacher laptop, an interactive whiteboard, and a document camera. Our teachers collaboratively educate our students using technology through Google apps, instructional websites, and computer software. We have an award winning athletic program, and support strong UIL and Destination Imagination teams.  Our students feed into several area high schools;  Riviera, H.M.King, Bishop, and Santa Gertrudis Academy.

Tomorrow is the first day of the new school year for Ricardo ISD.   In order to have drop off and pick up run smoothly and to keep everyone safe, we are letting you know about a few changes.  In the morning, there will only be one line for drop off in front of the cafeteria.  We ask that children get out of cars when stopped at sidewalk.  Parents wishing to walk students to cafeteria are asked to park in the new parking lot across from elementary office.  Be aware that cars are also dropping off students so please do not interfere with line by walking in between cars.   Drop off may also be done in front of gym.

During dismissal, have your card sign with student name on it visible for staff to see.   Zone in front of gym will be used again.  So, we will have three zones running for dismissal.   Parents parking and picking up students must park in designated parking spaces.  Do not park along opposite side of buses as this puts you and students in danger.  Thank you for your cooperation and patience.
