Student supervision begins at 7:45 AM. Students should not arrive prior to that time. Once students have been dismissed for the day, they are expected to move off the grounds and be on their way home.
Parents need to provide a clean pair of non-marking running shoes that students can keep in their classroom, a lunch (if the student stays for lunch) and a snack. There is no supply list for Riverbend School. Supplies will be provided to students through parent-paid fees (see section below, "Fees and Waivers").
We are a school that follows the Traditional calendar. View our school's Calendar for upcoming events and dates.
Riverbend School offers a 4-day Noon Supervision program to all students as a user-pay service. All students staying for lunch must be registered. Please visit our Lunchtime page for more details.
The lunch schedule will be determined for 2021-22 based on any health restrictions that may be in place at that time.
Prior to the first day of school, you will receive a personalized email from your child’s teacher introducing themselves and providing you with information and instructions regarding the first day of school. This email will come out at 2pm on Tuesday, August 31.
Kindergarten Staggered Entry
Kindergarten classes will begin with a staggered entry. The dates and which students are expected will vary based on your child's assigned class. This information was sent to all registered families on Friday, June 11 and Monday, June 14. If you registered later, your information would have come in a separate email after your registration. Please contact the school in late June or late August if you are a registered Kindergarten family and you do not know your child's staggered entry date.
Please visit our How to Register page for all registration details and forms.
Our school office opens on Friday, August 27 for registration.
