Message From Mr. Pope

Dear Parents,


Riverside and all GCPS schools will be back to in-person instruction on August 5th. This is great news! A digital option will also be offered. GCPS will be asking parents to confirm how their child/children will begin school in August:

  1. In-person instruction at Riverside; or
  2. Digital learning for their child at home.

Students will attend school based on the option chosen for all of first semester (through December).


On Monday, June 29th, an email will be sent to the enrolling parent of every GCPS student. Students in families who do not select an option by July 10th will be assigned to in-person instruction. Families will receive verification of their selection for each child.


Please call the school at 678-482-1000 between 8:00 and 2:00 if you have any questions or would like to talk through your options for the 2020-21 school year.


Your principal,

Ben Pope
