Letter of farewell:

Dear Riverton Parents,

It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as your assistant principal. I am thankful for my time as part of the Riverton family, and I will cherish the relationships formed with all of you and your children. I am transitioning to the role of Middle School Resource Specialist for Madison County Schools. While I will miss everyone greatly, I am excited to continue to serve our district in this new capacity. Thank you for your support, and I look forward to any future opportunities where our paths may cross again.

Digital Libraries

We have 3 digital libraries that our students can use. For each of them, the username is riverton and the password is read.

Capstone Library (new books have been added)

Big Timber Media (scary books)



RIS has implemented a security system in which you have to be buzzed into the school by the front office. The camera and speaker is located on the far right door. Here is how it will work: 1 - Turn towards the camera and press the button. 2 - Explain the purpose of your visit. 3 - Front desk will buzz you through the door (far right). This procedure will also apply to after school care. Your ID card will still be required when conducting business, checking in-out, etc.


Our teachers can always use donations of things like hand sanitizer, tissues (especially this time of year!), Clorox wipes, paper towels, etc. Thank you for everything you do for our school!!

Safe to Tell

Call, text or email
(to anonymously report incidents of bullying, threats, drugs,

weapons, or anything that makes a student feel unsafe at school)

Car Rider Guidelines

1. Hang the number(s) on the rear view mirror, or hold it upright for the carline controller to see. (If it is lying flat on the dashboard, behind a decal, or _behind the upper shaded windshield, it is not visible.)

2. Refrain from using cell phone in car line.

3. If picking up more than one child, display all numbers at the same time, in a horizontal fashion. NOT one at a time.

4. If you do not have your car line number, park and go to the front office to check out your child.

5. Show only one number needed per child. The extra number should be removed, and used for others who may pick up your child.

6. Remember that we are a no tobacco campus. Please do not smoke in the car rider line.
