Grade TK-2 Independent (Asynchronous) Work Day (March 26)

This info/event is for grades TK-2 ONLY.


On Friday, March 26, 2021, students in Grades TK-2 will have an asynchronous (independent) school day. Students will not have a Zoom class meeting. Teachers will assign students work to complete during the school day on Friday, March 26. Students will be required to show that they have attended on Friday, March 26, by completing a Google Form at the beginning of the day. The Google Form should open automatically when students log in to their Chromebook on March 26. If for some reason your child has trouble, please contact the teacher on Class Dojo.


The teachers are preparing their classrooms on this day to be ready to start the in-person hybrid program after Spring Break.

Counseling Support at Rio Vista

We have great news! As students return to campus for in-person hybrid, we are increasing our counseling support to be sure that students/families that are in need can have that support provided directly at our school. This support is also available to our Distance Learning only students. We now have 3 staff members dedicated to support RV Students:


  • Gavin Sadow, Rio Vista Counselor on staff Tuesday - Thursday
  • Carissa Velasquez, Mental Health Support on staff Tuesday, Wednesday, & Friday
  • Judy Monetathchi, LMFT on staff Mondays & Fridays


Parent initiated referrals or requests for assistance should still go through the Google Form on the counseling page of our school website: https://www.psusd.us/Page/7157

Reminder - Spring Break

Spring Break runs from Monday, March 29th through Friday, April 9. School resumes on Monday, April 12.
