Ms. Griffith Named Riverwalk Academy Staff Member of the Month

Ms. Griffith, art teacher, has been named Riverwalk Academy Staff Member of the Month for the month of January.  Ms. Griffith was nominated by several staff members who said the following:

Mrs. Griffith is always willing to help others. She is passionate about helping students create beautiful pieces of artwork to hang around our school to display and also showcasing it in the online portfolios. She spends countless hours preparing things for students , filing artwork, preparing for the art show in the Spring or having students make pieces for the winter showcase and also the rock garden outside at the flag poles. Her passion shines through each piece of artwork and painting she does at the school whether it be a mural or individual piece from a student. It’s a pleasure to see all that she helps students express through their art.

Ms. Griffith is a wonderful art teacher. She is enthusiastic and loves what she does. Her lessons are fun and my student's enjoy going to her class.

For being selected as the January Staff Member of the Month, Ms. Griffith will have her very own parking spot for the month and will be recognized publicly during the January Board meeting.

Congratulations Ms. Griffith for being one of the reasons #WhyRiverwalk.

Tuesday Weather Update: 2 Hour Delay

Tuesday, December 11, 2018!.jpg

Lions, due to the wet roads (around the school and on the western and northwest side of York County), and because the temperatures will fall below freezing overnight (until around 9:00 am), Riverwalk Academy has made the decision to operate on a 2 hour delay on Tuesday, December 11, 2018. This decision was made with our Pride’s safety in mind.

Our school day will begin at 10:00 am, and our doors will open at 9:15 am for those needing to drop your children off.

Lions, stay safe!

Snow Day: Monday, December 10, 2018


After consulting with the York County Emergency Management and surrounding agencies, Riverwalk Academy has made the determination that we will be closed on Monday, December 10, 2018. The temperatures are not expected to rise above freezing until afternoon on Monday. While not all of the surrounding area received the same precipitation, as you can see from our staff, a large portion of our attendance area is covered in snow/ice, which will make for hazardous driving in the morning. Lions, please stay warm and safe.
