Dear Partners in Learning,

Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!  After a restful break, we will be ready to jump right back into learning here at RES.
The first marking period is over and your child's grades are waiting for you to review them on Genesis.  Report Cards will not be sent home with the students.  Parents must log in to Genesis to see their child's report cards.  Please email gcamardo@riverside.k12.nj.us if you still need to set up an account.

Winter Weather Reminders-
Delayed openings are now 90 minutes (K-5)- School starts at 9:40 am.
For delayed openings AM preschool is canceled and PM begins at the regular time (12:10.)
Should there be a delayed opening or school closing, you will receive an automated phone call.  Please make sure that your phone number on file with the office is up to date.
Information will also be announced on our website www.riverside.k12.nj.us  and on Philadelphia KYW new radio (1060 AM).  Our emergency closing code is 662.
Please use one of the above methods.  Please do not call the main office to see if there is a delayed opening or closing.

Remember that all students have recess outside throughout the winter.  Please have them come to school dressed accordingly.  Students will be brought indoors only during extreme weather conditions.

Reminder, we are asking you to NOT bring any forgotten items to school for your child after school has begun for the day.  With this rule, we are hoping to both encourage responsibility and support our security measures further.
