Riverdale High School News

Monthly “Evening Coffee” — a Q&A Session with Mr. Flannery 

In talking with the PTC, they made the suggestion of doing a monthly “coffee with the principal” — similar to what the grade school does. I thought it was a great idea. I will give brief highlights of work at the high school and then provide informal time for questions. Coffee at night is definitely optional. The information for joining is below. 
Join Mr. Flannery on Jan. 28 from 5-5:30 p.m for this Q&A via a PTC Zoom link. Watch for this access link in a RHS PTC Parent Pack eblast.
