Students MUST be accompanied by an adult in order to attend Panther football games, and the designated adult must stay in the game with the students they have agreed to supervise for the duration of the event.

September 1 - Football vs. Little Mill @ Lambert

September 2 - Cross Country @ Liberty Middle School

Congrats to our Cross Country team! Both the girls and boys team placed 1st at the Horizons Christian Academy.

Congrats to our football team for winning their 1st game against North 42-0.

Way to go Panthers! We are proud of you!


Now that we have the majority of our class schedules settled, we have been working on the new routine of attendance for both our in-person students as well as our virtual students. Unfortunately, we have some attendance records that are not accurate. We are working this week to update all attendance records. Please check attendance records again on Monday and notify your teacher if attendance records are not updated. Please note that attendance through FVA is based on work completion, so if a student is marked absent but subsequently completes the missing work, the attendance record can be updated.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Lunch/Breakfast Cafe Information

All students "in-person" have been provided a laminated card to purchase food in the cafe. The card allows the student to scan their code to eliminate the need to type in their student numbers. It is important that the students hold on to their cards to keep the process safe and efficient. Students may want to get a "badge" holder or lanyard that would clip on the inside of their backpack or elsewhere.

Families can now download and customize the Riverwatch MealViewer App from the School Nutrition page on our school website. This App allows you to identify any food allergies your child may have and see a months worth of menu choices at a glance for both breakfast and lunch. Try it today!

RMS Club - Update

We understand the importance of our Riverwatch clubs and are working on a plan to make club meetings happen, some potentially virtually. We will used a phased approach, beginning with academic clubs that have competitions. Stay tuned for more information.
