DON’T BUY THE LIE ASSEMBLY MARCH 10th
WHAT: Former Philip Morris researcher Victor DeNoble, PhD, one of the first whistle-blowers to tear down the wall of secrecy built by the tobacco industry. Dr. DeNoble’s presentations are part of Kaiser Permanente’s annual Don’t Buy the Lie tobacco prevention program — a free program that also includes a popular anti-smoking billboard design contest and educational materials
BACKGROUND: Dr. DeNoble is speaking at nearly 50 school assemblies across Northern California over a three-week period. Kaiser Permanente as part of the not-for-profit health care organization’s Don’t Buy the Lie tobacco prevention program, which will reach more than 100,000 students, sponsors his presentations. Dr. DeNoble was a key witness in government hearings examining the practices of the tobacco industry. His testimony was an important part of the mounting evidence that ultimately led to a multi-billion dollar settlement. Congressional hearings on the tobacco industry in 1994 made it possible for him to speak publicly about his work.

STUDENT DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP TRAFFIC TIPS, RULES, AND REGULATIONS 6th grade – Unless you are dropped off for an 8am class or club, your designated drop off and pick up lot is Oakhills. For safety and efficiency, it is still a right hand turn out of the Oakhills driveway.
Students may be on campus beginning at 8:50am. After school, students are to leave campus within 15 minutes of dismissal unless involved in a school sponsored activity.
With Oakhills 3rd grade pick up in the RV parking lot, it makes it difficult for the younger students to get picked up safely. As a courtesy to Oakhills families and for the safety of students, we ask that Ridgeview parents do not use the carpool zone prior to 3pm.
These procedures are designed for the safety and well being of your children.
Thank you for all that you do to make Ridgeview an exceptional school. We all are thankful for the many ways in which you support your children, each other, and our teachers and staff. Your time, talents, and efforts are recognized and appreciated.
Inspiring positive character and successful academics for students in the 21st Century.
