September Teacher of the Month
Riverwatch Middle School is blessed with "Simply the Best" staff. Please take a moment to nominate staff members that exhibit our philosophy of H3: Happy, Healthy and Hardy.
If your virtual student was mistakenly marked absent prior to August 30, 2020, please DO NOT email the teacher or our attendance clerk. Attendance must be updated using this form. Please also note that virtual attendance is ONLY updated on Saturdays, so it may take up to two (2) weeks for any issues to be corrected.
- Please send all (face-to-face and virtual) attendance notes to the attendance clerk in the counseling office or you may email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Virtual participation/attendance is taken weekly and updated over the weekend. Please check updated attendance records on Mondays. Please notify your teacher if attendance records do not appear to be accurate.
- Please note that attendance through FVA is based on work completion, so if a student is marked absent but subsequently completes the missing work, the attendance record can be updated.

Lunch/Breakfast Cafe Information
All students "in-person" have been provided a laminated card to purchase food in the cafe. The card allows the student to scan their code to eliminate the need to type in their student numbers. It is important that the students hold on to their cards to keep the process safe and efficient. Students may want to get a "badge" holder or lanyard that would clip on the inside of their backpack or elsewhere.
Families can now download and customize the Riverwatch MealViewer App from the School Nutrition page on our school website. This App allows you to identify any food allergies your child may have and see a months worth of menu choices at a glance for both breakfast and lunch. Try it today!
