Message from the Principal

Stephanie Lawrence
Dear Riverview Families,

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! The entire Riverview staff extends a warm welcome to our new and returning families. Teachers have been busy preparing their classrooms and curriculum for new learning experiences for your children. Our office is now open 7am to 5:30 Monday - Thursday through July 26th. Then we are back to normal hours, 7:15-3:45. The first day of school is Thursday August 2nd. In the meantime, here are a few notes about the opening of the 2018-2019 school year.

School Hours:
All students start at 8:15am and end at 3:00pm. Monday is our early release day, starting August 6th. ALL students are released at 1:00pm. Children should not arrive on campus before 7:55 am in the morning, as there is no supervision to monitor your child before that time. Be sure to pick up your child promptly at the end of the day. This is a safety issue, as the Riverview staff does NOT provide after school supervision. Our office hours are 7:15am - 3:45pm.

Traffic Safety:
Help us keep every child safe while riding or walking to school. Please be mindful of traffic laws, speed limits, children crossing the street, and our neighbors’ driveways during peak times. During Drop Off and Pick Up times, please follow all signs, procedures and staff instructions to aid in a safe and timely exchange. Please remember that the parking lot can be dangerous so we will not allow students to cross into the lot without a parent present to walk them. There is no parking in the pickup lane in front of the school. Stay with your vehicle at all times. Park in designated areas only. Please visit S
afety To and From School for more information.

Change for Kindergarten Pick-up:
All of our Kindergarten students will be picked up at the Kindergarten doors.  We will not be bringing Kindergarten students out to the car riders pick-up.  This will  help us to maintain the safety of release for some of our smallest customers.

School Breakfast and Lunch:
We offer breakfast and lunch to all students at Riverview. Breakfast is served in the classroom from 7:55 am to 8:15 am at no cost. Lunch is served each day during school hours. Applications for free and reduced lunch are included in your student’s 1st day packets.  Please visit Nutrition Program for more information.

Riverview PTA:
Please consider joining the Riverview PTA this year, which benefits ALL students at our school! There will be a signup table and a word from our PTA President at Meet the Teacher Night. We already have fundraisers and project goals for the year lined out. Please visit RVS PTA for more information.

Parent Communication:
Communication is going to be a focus for us here at Riverview this year. We are encouraging parents to sign up for our electronic communication sites to customize their communication experience. The following are our recommendations:
  • Parent Portal- real time grade tracking
  • Electronic Newsletters and updates
  • PTA remind account- keep up with fundraisers and events
  • Teacher remind account- for teacher updates
  • Facebook, Instagram, Twitter accounts- to get more of the day to day news and fun pictures of students working in classrooms.
Please visit Parent Portal for more information.

Again, welcome! The staff and I are excited to begin the new school year with your child. We look forward to supporting all our students in their academic growth, and to building a strong partnership together.

Sincerely,
Stephanie Lawrence
Principal Riverview Elementary School
