April 9, 2021 Newsletter to Riverview Families

Registration Verification

It is super important that each family complete the online registration for next year.  For staffing purposes it is crucial that we know which students are coming back for the 21-22 school year and which aren’t.  Here is the link to get started.  https://www.durangoschools.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=1463824&type=d&pREC_ID=1620470  If you don’t know your parent portal username and password you can contact Justin at jm[email protected] for assistance.  Thanks in advance for your attention to this.


As of right now there is not a plan for returning on Wednesdays for a full in-person week of school. This could change, however, based on community transmission rates and Task Force decisions. We will communicate as we learn more. 

Spring CMAS

This is a reminder that Grades 3, 4, and 5 will be engaged in CMAS testing, a Colorado state assessment, for the next 2 weeks. As a result of recent state legislation and a federal mandate, students will be required to take one test per grade level. Grades 3 and 5 will take English Language Arts while 4th graders will take Math. Riverview’s testing schedule will be as follows:

April 12, 13, & 15: 4th grade Math, 5th grade ELA

April 19, 20, 22: 3rd grade ELA

April 26-30th: Make-ups

In an effort to keep our daily schedule with Specials, interventions, and small group instruction, classrooms will test on the assigned days but at a time that suits their daily schedule. If you have any questions in regards to individual classroom schedules, please contact your child’s teacher. If you have any general questions regarding CMAS you may contact Duane Tucker or your child’s teacher. You may also access additional information at https://www.cde.state.co.us/assessment/cmas. As always, we appreciate your support and we hope you and your child enjoy that last couple of months in our school year.
