Early Dismissal Times

Ritenour's calendar includes five early dismissal days for Ritenour students in grades K-12. On early dismissal days, the school day ends two hours early for students. Lunch times are adjusted so all students have the opportunity to eat lunch in all Ritenour schools on early dismissal days. After-school care is available on all early dismissal days for elementary school students.
