 Blue Box Project

​​​Blue Box Project is a community service initiative, started by Stacy Edington, at Fossil Ridge High School in memory of Rebecca Read. Rebecca is the daughter of Buddy Read, vice principal of Fossil Ridge from 2005 through the 2015 school year. As a mission project through her church, she established a community service project to collect donations of sanitary and personal hygiene products for women of domestic violence. Her hope was that this project would continue for years to come. Sadly, Rebecca lost her life in a vehicle accident summer of 2016.

A Note to Parents About May STAAR Testing

​April 25, 2017

Dear Fossil Ridge High School Parent/Guardian:

Our May STAAR testing dates are next week, and we want to make sure everyone is aware of the dates, times, and schedule for these two days.

Test DateStudents/Subjects TestingSchedule
Tuesday, May 2, 2017Algebra I STAARRegular school day
Wednesday, May 3, 2017 


Biology and U.S. History STAAR

Late Arrival for students who are not taking STAAR or AP exams.  


Late Arrival: 11:30 AM

10th Graders: report to Cafeteria

12th Graders: report to FAC

We ask for your support in ensuring that your son or daughter is in attendance on the day of testing and that you avoid appointments or early releases during this time. Students who take classes at KCAL need to report directly to Fossil Ridge the morning of the test. Co-op students should make arrangements with their employers for late arrival to work.

As we prepare for the STAAR, we would like to share important procedural reminders.  As in previous years, students will be asked to sign an honor statement before taking the test.  This is a procedure implemented by the Texas Education Agency to help ensure that each student's test results are an accurate indicator of his/her academic performance. The honor statement will be printed on each student's answer document as follows: By signing my name, I agree that I will not give or receive unauthorized assistance during the test.  I understand that giving or receiving unauthorized assistance during the test is cheating and may result in the invalidation of my test results.

Student test results will also be invalidated for possession and/or use of any electronic devices (i.e. cell phone, IPOD, MP3 player, smart watch, etc.) during the campus testing time.  Your students will be asked to turn off all devices.  Any devices that are brought to the testing centers will be collected, labeled, and stored, and supervised by the teachers until the end of the testing day.  Student possession of electronic devices during a state assessment could result in collection of the device, a $15 charge to reclaim, disciplinary action, and possible invalidation of a student's test scores.

Students will need to bring a sack lunch on test day or may purchase one from the cafeteria, which will be available for pick up prior to the start of the test.   The Algebra, Biology, and U. S. History STAAR exams have a four hour time limit. Please don't hesitate to call the school if you have concerns or questions.
