How We Communicate

The Ritenour School District communicates to our students, parents, staff and community using a number of communication platforms. Here is a brief overview of some of the ways we keep you informed.  

Finalsite Connect

Finalsite Connect is Ritenour's mass notification service that allows us to reach families via phone, text message, email and Ritenour App notifications. Ritenour uses Blackboard Connect messages to send families important information, emergency notifications and reminders about upcoming events. Learn more about text messages through Finalsite Connect.

Inside Ritenour 

Inside Ritenour is a monthly e-newsletter that keeps you informed of the latest happenings in the district. Newsletters are a key component of many school communications. Stay informed by finding your school's newsletter on Peachjar or your school website under the News & Media section.  

Parent Portal

Parent Portal is a free online tool that assists in the communication of important academic and other student information. Parent Portal allows you to view report card, attendance, discipline and class schedule information for your child.


Peachjar is Ritenour's digital flyer management system. It is a cloud-based platform that allows the school to email flyers directly to parents.  

School Website

Use the calendar on the homepage of the district or school website to see what's going on in Ritenour, and check the Ritenour News section to stay in the loop with important district news and information.  

Social Media

Social Media is another communication tool that Ritenour administrators, coaches and teachers may use to communicate to students, parents and the community. Facebook and Twitter are often used to highlight student success stories and remind social media users of upcoming events. Check out our social media accounts below.
