Weather Notice

Huntsville City Schools will operate on a 2-hour delay on Tuesday, November 12, 2019.  The two-hour delay will also apply to all HCS employees, unless otherwise directed by your supervisor.  The current forecast does not call for accumulations of winter-like precipitation, but does include a significant wind chill.  The delay will allow time for conditional improvements to ensure safe travel and improved conditions for our buses, students, and staff. 


All elementary, middle, and junior high classes will begin at 10:00am.  All high school classes will begin at 10:30am.  Buses will also run on a two-hour delayed schedule. 


The HCS Weather Safety Team will work in conjunction with the EMA and other local agencies to monitor conditions and send out updates should any additional changes be necessary.  For more information about the weather safety decision process, please select the more information link below.

Hello! I am Mrs. Wells and I am super excited to be working at Ridgecrest Elementary! I was born in Puerto Rico but raised in Tampa, Florida my whole life. I attended the University of South Florida where I received my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education. GO BULLS! I previously taught in Florida for two years until I moved to Huntsville with my husband and our sweet dog. I have a huge passion for teaching children and being a positive light in their life. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year where we can MAKE OUR DREAMS SOAR!
