Inclement Weather

From the Riverview Administration: 

For weather-related decisions, the District consults with our local meteorologists, police departments, bus garage, and surrounding districts in an attempt to make the best decision possible given the circumstances. We appreciate your cooperation and patience and ask that you avoid calling school (unless there is an emergency).  During inclement weather, it is important to keep the phone lines open.  

Below are the delayed opening times for the District:

  • Jr-Sr High School - student arrival at 9:20am, with classes beginning at 9:40am
  • Elementary - student arrival at 10:20am, with classes beginning at 10:30am


We will make every attempt to hold in-person instruction (even if that means instituting a delayed opening). All full day closings in the 2022-2023 school year will result in virtual instruction. For the first full day closing each year, the District will start on a delayed opening schedule to allow for a smooth transition to virtual learning (see start times above). 

Message on School Safety

The Riverview School District sees the safety of our students and staff as our top priority.  We have a detailed and extensive confidential safety plan that encompasses every situation that could happen in our schools.  This plan is shared with our local law enforcement and emergency personnel and is reviewed yearly as a part of our partnership with them.  We hold emergency drills on a monthly basis in collaboration with our local law enforcement and first responders and we engage our staff in ongoing training.  All Riverview facilities have been updated to maximize safety and security, and we hold safety meetings with multiple stakeholders on a monthly basis.  Ultimately, our goal is to ensure we continue to stay safe, educated, well-informed, and proactive as we work collaboratively to meet the many challenges of our society.

Riverview Health and Safety Plan

The Riverview School District takes the health and well being of our school community very seriously.  As a result, the Administration and Board of Directors periodically review our Riverview Health and Safety Plan to make sure the health and safety of our students, educators, staff and school community is always in focus.

Emergency Notification and Unplanned Closings, Delays, and Early Dismissals

The District has extensive Emergency Procedures to maintain the safety of everyone.  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.  On 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.

Statement on Political Affiliations and School Logos

The Riverview School District is a public entity serving a diverse population of students, staff, parents, and community members. As such, the District holds no political affiliation. Additionally, the use of all District logos should be in accordance with the Riverview School District Branding Guide and with the full consent and permission of the District Administration.
