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.

~ Mr. Lendon Schwartz, Principal

News Blog Category - News Marion Community Schools’ onsite registration is next week. All new students (K-12) and their families wanting to enroll should plan to attend. In addition, any returning student/family who needs computer access or other assistance should attend during these times as well.

Onsite registration will be from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 17, and Wednesday, July 18, at Marion High School, 750 W. 26th St. (This will be the location for registration for all MCS schools, K-12. Staff from all school buildings will be available on those days at Marion High School.) Please enter at Door 4 on the northeast corner of the building. Parking is available in the parking lot on the east side of the building. Please do not park in the circle off 26th Street. 

Those with students who are new to MCS should plan to provide needed documentation and information, including proof of residence (such as a recent utility bill with your name and address), and the name and contact information for the school your student most recently attended, along with any health/allergy information.

Those with returning students will need to review information including contact numbers, address, transportation options, assistance requests, etc., and update if needed.

Textbook fees and deposits can also be paid at the on-site registration days (where you can avoid the online payment processing fee).

A note for students registering for classes at Marion Regional Career Center: MHS students will register for MRCC classes during the regular registration process outlined above. Sending school students will complete their registration after the start of school, in conjunction with their school counselor and MRCC staff.

The online registration system will again be available for families with students who were enrolled at an MCS school last year, including Little Giants Preschool students who will be in kindergarten this year, as well as any families who attended Kindergarten Roundup in the spring. A link and instructions will be provided in the Enrollment section of our website once online registration is open. (Computer access and assistance with passwords or other issues will be available at Marion High School during onsite registration days.)
