News Blog Category - News For families who bring their student(s) to school:

During arrival, please say all of your good-byes before pulling up to the drop-off zone. We do our best to keep the car line moving. Students should be ready to exit the car as soon as the car comes to a complete stop.

During dismissal, please remember NOT to block any driveways (including those for homes in the neighborhood). Blocking driveways is a ticketable offense, and police will enforce traffic laws in the area! Also, please be sure to use your turn signals when entering and exiting the Riverview property.
