May 15th - Pick-Up of Personal Items & Popsicles

Submitted by angela.killian on Tue, 04/28/2020 - 13:50

Riverview staff has bagged up all of the contents of student desks and cubbies.  We have set aside May 15th as the pick-up day of personal items and popsicles.  If you have purchased a yearbook through the PTA, yearbooks will also be available for pick-up on this same day.  We will also be collecting library books that you may still have at home on the 15th. 

We have organized pick-up by alphabet to help us keep it organized, manageable, and as efficient as possible.  Please keep in mind that we can only have a limited number of staff working each pick-up location to keep our staff safe.  We appreciate your patience and cooperation.

We will utilize the two drop-off zones, kindergarten parking lot and the parking lot near sixth grade classrooms to make this happen.  Please note the following locations and times for pick-up.

  • K-1st grades (Kindergarten Parking Lot)
  • 2nd grade & Mrs. Chambers, Mrs. Mathis/Mrs. Gilbert 3rd grade (West drop off zone)
  • 4th grade & Mrs. Black, Mr. Jenkins, Ms. Johnson’s 3rd grade (East drop off zone)
  • 5th – 6th grades (parking lot near sixth grade classroom)

Designated Time Slots for pick up – this schedule is according to the first letter of your last name.

  • A – G from 9:00 – 10:30
  • H – M from 10:30 – 12:00
  • N – S from 12:00 – 1:30
  • T – Z from 1:30 – 3:00

Keep everyone’s health and safety in mind, this will be a curbside pick-up process.  Students’ belongings will only be released to adults.  School personnel will wear gloves and masks. 

Parents should make every effort to retrieve items during the set times.  If that’s not possible, please contact your child’s school to make arrangements.

UVU Summer Reading Support

Submitted by angela.killian on Fri, 04/24/2020 - 14:55

The Utah Valley University K-12 Reading Program has opened early, reduced rates, and converted all classes to a live online format, to help parents and schools maintain student education during these unusual times.

Our live, teacher-led online classes are available now and throughout the summer, for Pre-K through 12th grade students. 

The curriculum is high caliber and has been taught in a live, online format for 5 years already with over 50,000 school-age students.  The classes are led by highly-trained teachers with many years’ experience teaching effectively in online classrooms.  Skills taught include:

  • Early Elementary: letter recognition, phonemic awareness, sight words, phonics
  • Mid-to-Late Elementary: fluency, phonics, long-word decoding, comprehension, textbook reading, writing
  • Middle and High School: doubling reading speed, comprehension, writing, notetaking, test preparation, textbook strategies

Due to the unfolding health crisis our ability to get the word out to parents has been greatly diminished.  Many parents are seeking solutions to keep their children productively engaged and ready to hit the ground running when in-person school resumes.  Would you help us make them aware of these programs by forwarding this email with its attached flyer, which describes the classes?  Should a parent have trouble opening the attachment they could also visit our website at
