Greetings East Ridge Middle Family!

Welcome back!  I hope everyone was able to refresh and rejuvenate!  As we dive into the next few weeks leading up to the winter break, let’s stay focused on attending school every day, embracing the joy of learning, and giving our best effort. Together, we can create a positive and enriching environment for East Ridge Middle School. Thank you for your continuous support. Let’s make these days and weeks count!

Have an AMAZING week!

Christy C. Drake, ERMS Principal

Items of Importance:



When students arrive at school whether by car, bus, or walking, they will have an opportunity to go through the cafeteria line to pick up a grab-and-go breakfast.  They will then be directed toward their homeroom classroom to eat.  For students not eating a school breakfast, they will report directly to their homeroom classroom.  School will start promptly at 7:20 and students will be in the classroom and ready to learn at that time.
