A MESSAGE FROM MISS KENT:
Hello RV Families,
Wow, what an interesting few days. The district has been vigilant in communicating with our families to keep you updated. This is an unfortunate occurrence impacting the entire country. We are experiencing the same questions, concerns, and emotions while trying to work through this problem. Riverview is committed to keeping student learning ongoing while being closed. Our teaching staff will be communicating with you regarding academic work. It is important to maintain a regular schedule of academic time while home so our students don't experience academic slide. We need to prepare for 3rd and 4th-grade MSTEP State Testing and work hard to be successful with the 3rd grade Reading Law. We set high expectations for all our kids and we need to drive student learning. Please make every effort to help in our success.
All student lockers have been cleaned out in preparation for cleaning purposes. If your child was absent today, we are asking that you come to pick up your child's stuff. I will be at school til 5:00 today and Monday morning til 11:30. If you have any questions, please email me or call. There will not be any staff in the building while we are closed.

Good Morning to our RV Families,
Pretty quiet in the school. I miss the children laughing, saying hello, being excited and playing. The Coronavirus has certainly changed how we think and act. All the disruptions may be obstacles to hurdle but don't let it get you down. This too shall pass. We want to keep everyone safe and healthy so we can eventually get back in school. Just a reminder to keep your kids on a routine that incorporates learning. We've been getting a variety of companies offering free learning experiences online. Most of our teachers have shared the programs we use at RV, however, if you come across more online sites that interest your kids, use them. I will periodically share some of those sites.
We will be delivering food for all families around the district today. This is for everyone! Families can pick up food at BRMS during the operating hours of 12:00 to 3:00 today or we will be delivering to all bus stops beginning at 3:45. If you have any questions, email Jane DeVries email@example.com.
The technology department is working on a check out system for devices. We will push the info out soon.
There are some families that need to pick up their child's belongings and work at RV still. I am in the office today until 1:30. Please come get your stuff!

Hello RV Families,
I just wanted to touch base regarding plans for educating your child(ren). The teachers are working extremely hard to push academic work out. Most of them had contacted you by email or phone to get bits of information regarding online accessibility, delivery of content, phone numbers and the device the kids are working on from home.
I know this has been very challenging for most of you but we must keep striving to reach new successes each day. RV sets high expectations for our kids in many ways and we would like those expectations to be consistent at home. If you have questions for your teacher, I encourage you to reach out to them. We are holding Zoom meetings throughout the week to stay current and work through our own obstacles. Bottom line, we want to get academic work for the kids.
I appreciate all the parents that stopped at RV today to pick up work organized by their teacher. Packets will be available for pick up in the front entrance between the double doors. I ask that you wait patiently and use the social distancing protocol at pick up. Your teacher will give you instructions on when packets are available.
Some students still have personal items at the school sitting in bags by the lockers. If you would like to pick up your child's belongings, please let your teacher know and they can contact me.
Food Delivery is happening at 9:00 am tomorrow. If you have any questions regarding Food Service, please contact Jane DeVries: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions, please let me know.
Renee A. Kent
