Please Remember...

  • If you're calling the office to report an absence, please leave a detailed message if the office doesn't answer.
  • Students should only exit and enter their car in the yellow zone, not at the other parts of the parking lot
  • The drop off lane is for quick drop off/pick up. If your child needs extra support getting in and out of the car, please consider parking and walking.
  • All parents need to check in to the office if coming on campus for a meeting.

Cell Phone Reminders

Reminder, if your child has a cell phone on campus please remind them that it must stay in their backpack and be on silent. If they need to contact you, they are to ask their teacher or the office and use our phones. Smart watches can be worn by students, but also must be on silent and students are not allowed to respond to notifications. Please avoid communication during school hours, as we want our students focused on academics and peer relationships. If you have a message for your child during the school day, please call the office.

Open Positions at Rio

We have an opening for a 9 hour a week yard duty. Rio, as well as the district, is in desperate need of substitutes. If you are interested in any of these positions, please contact Ms. Green @
