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").
View our School Calendar for upcoming events and dates. See the CBE website for system calendars.
Riverbend School offers a 4-day Lunch Supervision program to all students as a user-pay service. All students staying for lunch must be registered. Please visit our Lunch Supervision page for more details.
Lunch for Grades 1-6 will be from 11:00 to 11:45 AM
