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.
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.
