COVID-19 Resources

The health and safety of our Ridley family is our top priority.
We are grateful for your continued partnership as we work to respond to the rapidly changing status of novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Since mid-January 2020, our COVID-19 Response Team has been in close consultation with Niagara Region Public Health and has had its fingers on the pulse of World Health Organization reports. To the best of our ability, we are making educated decisions and deploying our pandemic preparedness plan to help mitigate risks to our school community.
With our updates being issued frequently, we ask that you refer to this landing page and login to TigerNET for the most current information.

The Ridley College campus will remain closed for the rest of the 2019-20 school year to all but essential services. We will continue to deliver Ridley Remote Learning (R2L) for all students through to our final day of classes on June 17th, 2020.

This closure is unprecedented in our school’s 130-year history. From the time the first cohort of students arrived by horse and carriage in 1889, our school has never been closed for this duration of time. In our past, we’ve carried on through fires, world wars and pandemics. The energy of campus life will resume, and Ridley will carry on. We eagerly await that day.
