Extended School Closures

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

In order for us to ensure the safety and health of our students our school will remain closed until further notice. These are challenging times for us all. The Riverside students and community are resilient and we will prevail together. 

We will continue coordinating with the Governor, Department of Health, CDC and the Arizona Department of Education to determine the duration of our school closure regarding when it will be safe for our students to return to school.

Please continue checking our website. Our principals will be adding work packets for students to complete during the closure. We will also be posting updates on our Facebook page. Thank you for your support during this difficult time. Please read the entire letter in both English and Spanish from Superintendent Rivera.

Meals on Wheels

Starting March 25, 2020, and until further notice, we will provide free student breakfast and lunch via meals on wheels. Meals on wheels ensures all students can eat! For details, please see our meals on wheels flyer.
