Riverview students and families:

Welcome back! We hope you had a wonderful summer and are excited to get the 2018-19 school year started. If you are new to Riverview Elementary, we want to welcome you into our wonderful family. Riverview is a safe place of learning, making friends, making memories, having fun, and a lot more! You are going to love it here!

This year is going to be filled with a lot of exciting things! Are you ready to grow? Our Riverview team has been working hard preparing their classrooms, the school, and lessons so that you will have the best year yet! We make GIANT things happen!

If you haven't registered your child, please click here for information about when you can do so. Please do not wait until the last day to register. We need to know who our awesome GIANTS are and place them in classes!

We will have an OPEN HOUSE on Wednesday, Aug. 8, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Come see who your teacher is, and please note: Riverview apparel will be on display to order at the PASS (Parent Allies for Student Success) table.

Students' first day of school is Aug. 9. Doors will open at 7:30 a.m. for breakfast (which is free to all students), and school begins at 7:45 a.m. Dismissal is at 2:15 p.m. (Kindergarten parents: You may walk your child to class the first day, but after that, our awsome kindergarten teachers will help them get to class.)

CAR RIDERS please note: We have updated information for dismissal.

We ask that you do NOT line up before 1:45 p.m. to pick up your student. We would like to provide easy access to our visitors entering, exiting, parking, and visiting our building. We also need easy access for emergency vehicles in case they are ever needed. Please see the photo below for the designated spot to begin lining up no earlier than 1:45 p.m. At 2 p.m., Riverview staff will direct the line forward.

Please also remember: DO NOT block driveways of our neighboring houses! Police could ticket you if you are blocking driveways. 

We successfully load more than 150 cars in 15 minutes! Please be patient with us. Your cooperation is appreciated. 

This is going to be a great year! I am extremely excited to see all of our Riverview Giants back in the building. I have missed everyone! See you soon.
