    Below are a few reminders and updates on Riverside's arrival and dismissal procedures for car riders and walkers.


    Supervision begins at 7:30am. Students may enter the cafe for breakfast or Begin with a Book at this time.
    The first bell is at 7:50am and students are expected to be in class and ready to learn by the second bell at 8:00am. For the safety and security of all students, the gates are locked at 8:00am.   In the event of inclement weather, we will make sure students arrive safely before closing the gates.  Students arriving after 8:00am must be signed in by a parent at the front office and are marked tardy.

    As a reminder, Lots 1 and 4 are for drop off only.  The bike racks are in Lots 3 and 4.  The car lines get backed up closer to 7:50am.  We recommend for on time arrival for you to come earlier when there is little to no wait.

     DISMISSAL: We require you to display a student hanger tag in your  windsheild with your child's last name only
    Lot 1 is for car pick-up or parents who walk to pick up their children with a Park and Pick- Up pass.  Car Lot 4 is available for car pick up only.  There is NO PARKING or walk and pick up in lot 4. For the safety and security of the students, all cars  MUST have tag. If you need additional tags, they are available in the front office.

    In order to expedite pick up and keep our students safe, please display the student(s) full name in the window of your vehicle. The car line will run more efficiently if you pull up to the car in front of you.  Please, no cell phones in car lines.

    Be sure to notify your child’s teacher how your child is getting home. Also, walkers/bikers are not permitted to walk home if there is lightening in the area.  Please have an alternative plan in advance for these situations and inform your child’s teacher of the plan!
