Riverdale High School News

Hello Everyone,
Just want to share a quick note about next week. Remember that there is no school for students at the High School on Monday, Thursday and Friday. Don’t forget to get signed up for conferences on Thursday and Friday as well.  
Also, please remember to turn in the COVID-19 screening test kits on Wednesday mornings. Please send them to school with your students. Our return rates have been slipping, and we would really like to keep the program going successfully. The better return rates we have, the better we are able to manage the impacts COVID has on our school.  
Bart Hawkins, RHS Principal
