    2020-2021… Here We Come!

    Principal’s Message

    July 2020 


     First and foremost, we hope these words find you and your loved ones safe and healthy. We miss our students, the interactions we have with them, and the genuine looks on their faces as they learn and grow. As such, we look forward to the start of the 2021-2021 school year and welcome our new and returning students, albeit virtually and through the e-Leaning model.

     As you may know, District schools, including Riverland Elementary School, will open for the 2020-2021 school year with virtual at-home e-Learning from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM, beginning August 19th. However, we understand families have varying needs and these times may not work best for your family. If so, you may choose to have your child participate in the PM e-Learning session, which requires children to be logged in from 2:30 PM to 8:30 PM.

     If you wish to select the PM e-Learning session, we ask that you access and complete the PM e-Learning Session Survey, located below the Riverland News section on our website’s homepage, by 3:00 PM Tuesday, August 4th. If you prefer, you may also contact our school at (754) 323-7200 and indicate that you would like to select the PM e-Learning session for your child. Please make certain that you submit a survey for each child you would like to participate in the PM e-Learning session.

    Moreover, please note that no action is required on your behalf if you do not wish to have your child enrolled in the PM e-Learning session. All students will be scheduled into the 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM session unless you complete the online survey or contact the school prior to 12:00 PM Monday, August 3rd.

    Lastly, please know that Riverland Elementary School's staff remains committed to providing a high quality education to all students. We thank you in advance for your continued support, patience, and cooperation. We may be physically distant for the time being, but please trust that you are not alone. 

    As always, we encourage you to do all that you must to ensure that you and your family remain safe and healthy; we encourage you to stay informed by accessing  Thank you.
