Welcome to Riverview Elementary

REMINDER: School is in session Monday, 1/19!

Posted on Jan. 15 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
Due to the cancellation of classes on Jan. 8 because of extreme cold temperatures, there WILL be school on Monday, Jan. 19, previously scheduled as a holiday to be used as make-up day as needed.

Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and with school in session, our teachers and staff will have a great opportunity to recognize the day's importance by giving extra emphasis to lessons on the civil rights activist's life and accomplishments.

In addition, due to the subsequent closures on Jan. 9 and 12 because of extreme cold temperatures, snow, and ice, there will also be school on Monday, Feb. 16, previously scheduled as a holiday to be used as a make-up day as needed, as well as on May 21, the first designated make-up day at the end of the school year.

Please make a note on your calendars that school will be in session on those days!

After having to adopt a longer school day for several weeks last school year to make up time lost to snow and cold, the school administration, with input from teachers, staff, and parents, requested the early make-up days in the school calendar, and the School Board approved it. This is a proactive measure to regain crucial learning time for our students before the end of the school year.

Any more cancellations will result in more days being added to the end of the school year.

Thank you for your flexibility as we all make the best of another Indiana winter! We know 2015 is going to be a great year, and the early make-up days give us the option of regaining important learning time for our students now.

MARK YOUR CALENDAR: Closures mean classes ARE in session 1/19, 2/16, 5/21
