A Message From the Principal

Dear Ross Elementary Families,

Welcome back! I’m so excited to start the 2022–2023 school year! We are going to have another very successful year with several different activities planned to make this year once again a great one! I am excited to announce that classrooms are currently being prepared, and I'm most looking forward to meeting our new incoming kindergarten class. The kindergarten and new student orientation is set for August 30. Finally, if you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. Once again, get ready for another fantastic school year!

As always, remember that good people will do great things!

Take care, and stay strong!

Mr. Matt Nonnenberg

We are always up to something new. Visit this page often to see what's happening. You'll find upcoming events as well as the latest news about some of the great things going on at our school.


Doors open at 8:55 a.m. and the school day begins promptly. Students are expected to head directly to their classroom for attendance, breakfast, and/or homeroom. Persistent tardiness is not acceptable. Any student arriving after 9:15 a.m. is considered tardy. If your student is tardy you must accompany them in to the school to sign them in. Tardy arrivals are only excused with a doctor’s note. Please make every attempt to be here on time. If your student misses school due to illness please send them in with a doctor or parent excuse to give their teacher upon their return.

Dismissal Reminders

We dismiss students from school at 3:40 p.m. on regular school days and at 1:00 p.m. on a planned early dismissal. If you need to make alternate arrangements for your child for the end of the day, please be cognizant that the teacher may be out, or may not have time to check messages and e-mails during class time, etc. and the message may not be received. The best way to make changes is to send a note with your child in the morning. Any bus changes must be arranged with the transportation office. You may reach them at (570) 255-2719. If your child will be picked up daily as a walker you must send a note with them saying they are to be dismissed as a walker for the school year. If someone different will be picking your child up as a walker, please send a note in to inform the office. 

Text Alerts

Make sure you have your phone numbers registered to receive any school alerts such as late starts or early dismissals due to inclement weather. Email us with the numbers you wish to register, then text ALERT to 22300. Standard text messaging rates apply.
