Notes From Our Nurse, Suzanne McLelland

Parents, I appreciate you working so diligently with me and the rest of our staff here at Riverview when it comes to keeping our school family healthy and safe. I understand how difficult it is to make a decision about sending your child to school in the mornings when they have physical complaints that may or may not be related to an illness. You may find it helpful to review the SC DHEC School and Childcare Exclusion List and refer to it when trying to decide whether or not to send your child to school. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me at 803-548-8369.

For COVID-19 information, please go to the COVID Info tab on the Fort Mill School District Website by clicking on:

From this location you can view the most recent COVID guidelines, report a positive case or a close contact involving your student.

Clothing donations: We are accepting new or gently used coats/jackets, pants, socks, shoes and underwear in sizes typical of elementary students. Elastic waist pants are the most useful and versatile. At this time, we do not need shirts.
