Welcome To Riverside Elementary School
Dear Partners in Learning, 5/1/17
May and June are exciting times at Riverside Elementary School. With spring break over, project-based learning is in full gear. We have plenty of end of the year field trips and fun events.
We are in the middle of the third trimester. If your child is in grades 3-5, have you checked Genesis for an academic update?
DRESS CODE REMINDER- None of the following are permissible.
* Flip Flops or sandals without heal straps (For safety's sake - students walk in close proximity on our stairs)
* Shirts, blouses, dresses, etc. that display bare back or midriffs, (halter tops or half tops) have "cut-out " sections or are see-through.
* Inappropriately short shorts, dresses, or skirts.
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.
