Dear Riverview Community, 

As we work through logistics for "At Home Learning," I have a few quick questions that I need everyone to respond to. We really need you to fill out 1 survey for EACH Ram student in your home! It will take about 30 seconds each! Thank you!

School Dismissal Due to COVID-19

My Dear Riverview Community,   

As you might be aware the Governor has just announced a dismissal for schools for the next two weeks.  We'll be sending information and protocols to you as we move forward.  But at this point we will not be holding regular school and classes starting Monday, March 16th.    All school events for this next week such as Parent Conferences, Field Trips, After-School Clubs, Jungle Book Practice is canceled until further notice (we'll communicate changes as they become available).   The district was preparing for our schools to provide instruction through an online distance learning tool (instructions and steps to access this will be forthcoming) and hard copy learning packets.  Learning and instruction will continue over these next two weeks.

Breakfast and lunch will be made available beginning on Monday.  These meals will be served as a 'grab & go' meal.  Breakfast will be served from 8:00-9:00 am, lunch from 11:00-12:00 pm.  If you would like to have the meals provided to your student, call the school kitchen and alert them to how many meals will need to be prepared. 

In preparation for the next two weeks, please evaluate your need at home for devices to access the online learning for all of your students.   We will have chrome books available at Riverview for you to checkout over the duration of the closure (we'll let you know how and when to pick up any needed devices).

For those with limited or no internet at home we’ll be providing learning packets that can be picked up here at the school.  There is a possibility to use mobile hot spots for Internet (more to be forth coming). 

As far as looking at the start of the week our timeline would be for Monday and Tuesday our teachers and staff to prepare, plan, prepare, organize and communicate out to our families and gather and send out needed information.   We will look for a launch date of Wednesday to begin providing classes/learning through our distance learning tool and packets.   

Thank you for your support and understanding through these unprecedented times.  I'm confident in the abilities and talents of our Riverview staff and we will do all we can to teach and serve our students.   I also recognize the challenges and hardships this brings for our community and families.   It is my hope that we can reach out, look to serve, and help one another.  I believe that this can bring us closer as a Riverview Community and family.   Have a good weekend.   It's good to be a Riverview Ram. 

Love to All,
Mrs. Killian, Principal Riverview Elementary 

Shadow Mtn. Registration Delay

Submitted by angela.killian on Fri, 03/13/2020 - 14:39

In response to the current guidelines concerning Corona Virus, Shadow Mountain registration has been postponed. This will allow time for the situation to become more clear prior to the registration taking place. This is only a precaution in order to avoid cumbersome refunding procedures and other possible complications in the event the camp needs to be cancelled. We will send out a follow up notice when the new registration date is set. Thank you for your understanding.

Coronavirus Information

Dear Riverview Community,

Acting on the latest information regarding the coronavirus from the Utah Health Department, Nebo School District, and the State of Utah, Riverview is implementing the following to reduce the risk of spread of infection:

  • Riverview has cancelled all assemblies (large gatherings of 100 or more) from March 16th - 30th however, that may extend beyond March 30th as we are updated continually from the Utah County Health Department. 
  • Riverview will keep our facility clean by adhering to industry standards for preventing the spread of illness.  Special concern will be taken in high traffic areas such as restrooms, door knobs, drinking fountain and computer keyboards. 

Preventive measure that should be taken:

  • Stay home when you are sick. Stay home for at least 24 hours after you no longer have a fever or symptoms of a fever without the use of fever-reducing medicines.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.  
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue, and then dispose of the tissue and clean your hands immediately.
  • Limit close contact with people who are sick.  

SEP conferences on March 19th will continue as scheduled.  If you are uncomfortable in coming, message your child’s teacher. 

Other reliable sources of information about coronavirus are:

Additional information can be accessed at the CDC’s school guidance document. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/index.html

Nebo School District takes this health risk very seriously. Nebo schools have been directed to increase prevention practices such as increased sanitation techniques and practices, monitoring of school sickness rates, and preparation for online schooling in the event that a school is closed.  Out-of-state travel has been cancelled beginning immediately for at least two weeks, as per request of the State’s Coronavirus Task Force.  Other school travel is also being reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

School dismissal or closure is under the direction of the Utah County Board of Health.  Nebo School District is working very closely with the County Board of Health to safeguard students, staff, and communities of Nebo School District.

Thank you for your support and patience as we maneuver through the complexities of how to address this community challenge.

Riverview Teacher of the Year

Submitted by angela.killian on Tue, 03/10/2020 - 09:17
Congratulation Mr. Teuscher!

 

Mr. Lynn Teuscher is an amazing teacher!  He mentors teachers on his team, leads our science fair, been instrumental our participation in the Hope of America Freedom Festival, and every day his classroom is full of learning, involvement, and fun!  

Every year, he knows where every single student is precisely with their understanding, and has a plan to make sure they "get it".  Then he very willingly shares with his team.

A parent shared: "Mr. Teuscher is, in my opinion, a truly gifted educator.  His rapport with his student's is so natural and instinctive. He makes learning fun and treat all of his student's fairly.  My son was having a hard time grasping a concept in math and was becoming frustrated...he was available the very next morning before school to go over it with him one on one. He is one of those teachers that a child grows up to remember for the rest of their life.  He truly is one of the best teachers that my child has been fortunate enough to learn from."

A colleague shared: "Lynn fosters effective relationships.  Lynn's ability to build strong relationships are the reason he has been nomiated as the Riverview Teacher of the Year, received the Crystal Apple, and PEAK award.  He has a strong understand of the many facets of teacher observations, classroom instruction and collaboration. He provides a strong road map for others to follow and supports them in their work."

Thank you for making such a big impact in the lives of others!
