Riverside Mission/Purpose Statement

The mission of Riverside Elementary is to provide a nurturing, enthusiastic, and safe environment that acknowledges individual differences, encourages community involvement, and emphasizes an ongoing commitment to academic excellence.

Safety & Security Reminders

Morning Checklist for Parents

Riverside is counting on parents to screen their children each morning before school. Please continue to use this checklist every day.

Car-rider Procedures

If you bring your child to school each morning, please use the car-rider lane between 7:40 and 8:10. Parents should not park in the front parking lot and walk students into the building.

Check-out Procedures

If you need to check out your child from school before the regular dismissal time, please arrive no later than 2:15 p.m. This helps us ensure a safe and secure dismissal process.
