FAQs - Ridge Creek
What is a Flex Zone?
In Flex Zones, students have the option of attending the school to which they are zoned or attending the new school with bus transportation provided. Balmoral Section 1 is a Flex Zone with students having the choice of attending Elementary School #29 or staying at Ridge Creek Elementary School. It is likely that Balmoral will be zoned to Elementary School #29 in future years because the county has indicated plans to build a bridge over a railroad track that would allow for Timber Forest Drive to connect Balmoral to Lakewood Pines.
