Curriculum Night

Riverview will be providing Curriculum Night this year via recorded videos from classroom teachers. This year, Snohomish schools had the option of providing Open House/Curriculum Night via live Zoom or recorded videos. Riverview staff chose recorded videos for K-6, so families would have the opportunity to view messages from teachers at a time that accommodates busy schedules. The recorded videos will be posted to the Riverview YouTube page on Thursday, October 14, at 4:00pm.

No schools are having in-person gatherings at this time. We are looking forward to conferences in early November when you will be able to have a conversation in-person with your teachers. Further communication will be coming on how to access the recorded YouTube video from your child’s teacher.

A Note from Nurse Kerrie

First of all, THANK YOU parents and guardians for all the extra things you are doing to make it safe for kids to be in school.

  • Monitoring for symptoms at home
  • Keeping kids home who have symptoms
  • Taking time off/arranging childcare for kids needing to stay home
  • Helping kids with schoolwork when they have to be quarantined
  • Getting kids tested (even when you’re pretty sure it’s just allergies)
  • Bringing in copies of test results
  • Getting doctor’s notes for existing conditions

This is only a partial list, but I know it hasn’t been easy on you. Without your help, my job would be much harder than it already is, so I appreciate your efforts more than you know.

Just a couple of reminders going forward:

  • Please do not send your child to school with any symptoms of illness. We will likely have to send them back home.
  • When you get a COVID test for your child, please request that the result includes their full name, the date the test was done, where it was done, and the result. If you are emailing a screen shot of a result, please make sure all of these elements are included as well.


Thanks again for everything! We will get through this eventually. Please reach out if you have any questions.

-Kerrie, RN

Attention Riverview 6th graders!

It is Beginning Band season, and we want YOU to sign up to join! Learning an instrument has been proven to benefit cognitive development, increase memory and reading skills, enhance social/emotional learning, and lower stress and anxiety. Check out this video to learn more about music's many benefits. Aside from all that, playing music is just plain FUN!!

Rehearsals will tentatively start October 11th and take place after school from 3:15 - 4:00 with Mr. Evans in portable 3. If you would like to sign up, please return the Beginning Band registration form to Mrs. Anderson as soon as possible. New registrations will be accepted through the month of October.

Washington State 2021 Healthy Youth Survey

The Snohomish School District will participate in the Washington State 2021 Healthy Youth Survey this fall. Please watch for more information from your child's school regarding specific survey dates.


The survey will be given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12. The Healthy Youth Survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, sexual behaviors, abuse, risk and protective factors, and access to school-based services. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks. Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous.

K-3 Highly Capable Program Information

  • If your student is currently in grades K-3 and you are interested in your student receiving highly capable services to include learning opportunities with more depth, complexity, and acceleration in the classroom please be aware of the following information. Students currently identified for highly capable K-3 services do not need to go through the K-3 referral process. Referral packets for the K-3 highly capable program are available in all elementary schools, and on the Snohomish School District websites in English, Spanish and Russian.
