Dear Timber Ridge Parents,

It is my pleasure to welcome you and your child(ren) to Timber Ridge Middle School. We are very excited to continue the work that has developed our school as an exemplary middle school that is developmentally responsive to the needs of your child. The partnership between home and school is one of the most important relationships in determining the success of our school. We invite you to be an active part of your student’s middle school experience. Despite the numerous factors that influence your student, you as parents are still the most important influence in student’s lives.

To orient all students with their schedules and locker, we are having a “Set-Up Your Locker Event” on Thursday, August 9, from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. All students will pick up their schedule, which includes their locker number and combination. Students may bring supplies to put in their locker.  You are welcome to take your schedule and walk around the building to locate your classrooms.  Staff members will be available to direct students and answer questions.

Please keep in mind that if any registration material has not been turned into the office as of August 8, 2018, this will delay your child in receiving their schedule on August 9, 2018 and/or starting school on August 16, 2018.  If this applies to your child, we have contacted you via Connect Ed messages.  This material may include one or more of the following:

  • Proof of Residency
  • Immunizations/6th Grade Physicals


  1. Bus schedules are available on after August 10, 2018 after 5:00 pm on the H.A.C. – Home Access Center for your child(ren) – please note: (for those students who are receiving bus transportation).
  2. The first full day of school is Thursday, August 16, 2018 from 7:55 am to 2:55 pm.

  4. Curriculum Night will be Thursday, August 30, 2018, from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm.  Parents will follow the student’s schedule and meet their teachers at that time.

We want to assure you that the Timber Ridge Staff is here to help you and your students feel welcome.  We look forward to meeting you soon.  If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact any of us at 815-439-3410 or at,,, or
