On Friday, January 17th, students
in the Riverview School District will spend some time reflecting on ways that
they can give back to their community. After some reflection time, they will
create plans that support their ability to put their words into action. Those
plans will be implemented on May 1st when students will actively go out into
the communities of Oakmont and Verona to put their plans into action. The
annual GIVE BACK DAY event was started several years ago as a way of honoring
Martin Luther King. Each year students spend a day reaching out to local
residents by participating in activities like, visiting with senior citizens,
providing landscaping manpower, performing, writing letters to service men and
women, and honoring local emergency management personnel. GIVE BACK DAY gives
the students the ability to GIVE BACK to the many residents who support our
schools and our students’ education each year.
We have adopted an Emergency Notification Service which allows us to send a telephone message to student homes providing important information about school events or emergencies. We are using this system to notify parents of school delays or cancellations due to inclement weather. In the event of an emergency at school, parents can have peace of mind knowing that they will be informed immediately by phone.
Unplanned School Closings, Delays,
or Early DismissalsOn any given day, parents and staff are urged to use caution when making the decision to drive or walk over snow and ice covered roads.
