Dear Riverview Families, We made it! What a year! Thank you so much for the support and hard work this year with helping us maintain our Covid protocols keeping students and staff safe. In spite of constant change our students did an admirable job of adjusting models, following our safety protocols, and just being great kids in spite of a global pandemic, a true testament to character. We would also like to publicly thank ALL Riverview employees in practicing resilience and perseverance in the face of some serious adversity. It is a true testament to how hard these folks work and care for our students. We are a lucky community!

April 9, 2021 Newsletter to Riverview Families

Dear Riverview Families, We hope you are enjoying this beautiful spring weather. We are looking forward to getting our classrooms back outside as much as possible. We wanted to thank you for your patience, flexibility and most of all kindness these last couple of months. Since returning to in person learning, Riverview has needed to quarantine 5 Cohorts due to positive cases. Even though being in quarantine is difficult, it is our system working to keep everyone safe. We have had ZERO documented student to student transfers here at school. We want to thank our community of students, staff, and families for continuing to follow the District wide COVID Guidelines.
