Welcome to Ravinia Signs
For our new families -- If you received a “Welcome to Ravinia School” sign in your front yard from the PTO at the start of this school year, please return that sign at your earliest convenience to the school office. Thank you!
We are off to an AMAZING start to the school year! Please be sure to check out social media sites for pictures of our first week, in addition to our website. Most of our teachers also have Twitter accounts that we use to share happenings from our classroom. Check us out!

End of Day Routine Changes: Please let the office know about any changes in routine by 2:30 each day. The teachers cannot all check their voicemail or email as they are in the class with your children.
Please note that we have installed a new visitor management system in all our schools, and we have new procedures in place for visiting Ravinia. When you enter at the front door, you will enter a secure vestibule. You must use the call button to the right of the office door to be buzzed in to the office. Once in the office, you will need to present your ID (driver’s license) to be scanned before entering the building. We appreciate your patience as we implement this new system to keep your children safe.
