Eager to Learn, Seeking to Lead, Working Together to Achieve


Thank you to our amazing Richfield PTA for the small pumpkins for our parties and all of the parent volunteers that made our Halloween party such a big success! The students loved all of the fun and games.

We appreciate all of our parent volunteers for our library, character recognition, Farmers' Market, classroom helper and the list goes on! Your partnership is invaluable!

Richfield Elementary Friendly Reminders:

~ Please label your child’s things (like lunch boxes and coats) with their names. There are many items in lost and found and we will return the items if they have a student name in them.

~As the weather gets colder, students are reminded to dress appropriately for the weather.

~ Please send in an extra set of clothes with your child, to keep at the top of their locker, in case clothes get wet while outside for recess. Please label these clothes.

~Please follow the new parent drop off procedures :

  1. Student drop off in the morning begins at 8:30am at the parent pick up doors. This way a staff member will be present.
  2. Any parents wishing to park their car and walk their child in are asked to park at the back of the parking lot closest to the dumpster and to walk between the marked cone area.
  3. Parents dropping of their child are asked to form one line up against the sidewalk and have your child exit out the passenger side doors.
  4. Please pull down all the way to the end of the sidewalk and we will attempt to unload 5 cars at a time.
  5. We are ask that you do not got around other cars during drop off.

Thank you for your help with these new procedures to keep our students safe!
