A note from our new principal, Mr. Chris Bosse!


Chris BosseHi, Ridgebacks!  It is my honor to have been named the Principal of Central Ridge Elementary for the 2020-2021 school year. I conveyed to Mrs. Himmel, our superintendent of schools, that I would like the opportunity to return to the school I opened as an Assistant Principal 12 years ago to serve the staff, students and families of Central Ridge Elementary.


This is my 28th year as an educator in Citrus County.  My 16 years of classroom experience includes teaching kindergarten, first and second grades, as well as technology.  Since leaving Central Ridge 10 years ago, I have served as the Principal of Homosassa Elementary and most recently Hernando Elementary. 


There are many challenges we will face when schools reopen.  Most importantly, we must focus on the health of students and staff.  Also, we will need to address the varied academic needs of our Ridgebacks.  Following the extended distancing, the social/emotional needs of all students will need to be supported with new school wide structures.  I am certain that together we will overcome each challenge and will strengthen our school.


Our Ridgebacks excel when we all come together to support them.  I am looking forward to building partnerships between school staff, families, and our community to ensure Central Ridge Elementary is the best it can be for our students.
