Every Child's Learning Comes First at Riverside!

Arrival and Dismissal Times

Our bell rings at 8:17 a. m. Please have your child at school as close to the 8:17 bell as possible. Children are tardy after 8:20 a.m. Students who are brought to school by parents or who walk to school should not arrive before 7:50 a.m.
No students may be picked up between 3:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. This period of the day is very hectic and the teachers need to be concentrating on a safe dismissal. If you are in the building, you must wait until the 3:31 bell ( busses leave) to walk your child to the car.
