We hope everyone has enjoyed their summer with their families and friends! Riverwalk Academy is excited for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year! As August approaches, we wanted to ensure parents were aware of a couple of important dates, events and other information about the upcoming school year.
The first place that parents should always check is our Riverwalk Academy website. It contains links to various areas (Parent Resources, Board, PTO, etc.) that contain information that you may find useful. Please visit our website at http://riverwalkacademy.com
Our school supply list can also be found on our website under Parent Resources, as well as the Summer Reading information for each grade level, iWin (before/after school care), and our updated school calendar. If you need any information, please check our website first. We strive to keep it up to date with helpful information and easy to find links and resources.
Please remember we will begin school promptly every day at 8:00, and any students who arrive after 8:00 a.m. will be considered tardy. Dismissal will began at 3:05. Also be mindful this year we will be dismissing over 600 students at the same time. Our staff will work very safely and quickly to dismiss students in a timely manner. All students will be dismissed using their car tag, which you will receive 2 sets of tags at our Meet & Greet. Each set contains one large tag to hang from your mirror and 2 small key-chain tags. If you do not have a car tag number, you will be asked to go through the car line, park, enter the building to show your driver's license before your child will be called for dismissal.
Due to safety concerns, students will not be able to be dismissed to parents who park and do not go through the car rider line. Only parents who have been asked to park, will we dismiss students to them. We are trying very hard to keep students safe during dismissal. During dismissal our main focus is safety, therefore if a staff member asks you to park, move, or pull forward, please understand they are doing this for our student's safety. We also are asking parents to not come into the building during dismissal unless you have an appointment with a teacher. This will help us keep our building secure. We thank you in advance for your patience, understanding, and kindness during the first couple of weeks as we work to perfect our dismissal with more students.
Our teachers are excited to meet you at our Meet & Greet on August 14, 2017, from 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM. During this time you will be able to meet your child/children teachers, see the school, pick up your car tags, find out information about the hot lunch program, purchase t-shirts and magnets, have fun on our bouncy houses and eat some delicious food! There will be food trucks on site for food purchases.
Again we are very excited to see everyone in just a couple of weeks! We are looking forward to a fantastic school year!
