Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is hard to believe that it is already the middle of November and time for parent teacher conferences! Parent Teacher Conferences are a wonderful opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher(s) to learn how your child is progressing academically and socially in school. The dates for conferences are November 16 and 17. Students will have lunch and be dismissed at 11:50 both days. We hope to have 100% of our parents/guardians attend conferences this year. Please call Riverton at 874-8210 if you need to schedule or reschedule your child’s conference.
On Thursday afternoon during conferences, Riverton will be holding a Community Resource Fair. At the Community Resource Fair food, clothing, supplies, and other resource information will be provided for free to any family that visits. The Community Resource Fair will be in the cafeteria from 12:00 to 5:00.
The Book Fair is also being held during conferences and is located in the media center.
Be Prepared for School Cancellations
Portland Public Schools close when it is unsafe for children to get to school due to the conditions of roads and sidewalks. School closing decisions are generally made by 5:30 a.m. and announced on the school district’s website (www.portlandschools.org), Facebook page (Portland ME Public Schools) and on local radio and television stations, including TV3. The district may also choose to delay the start of school due to weather or specific issues in one or more buildings. Notifications for a delayed start will occur in the same way as full-day cancellations.
If schools are closed for the day, extracurricular activities usually are cancelled, too. However, Portland Recreation may be open for participants of their before- and after-school program. Please call the Recreation Information Hotline at 756-8130 for updates or check the Portland Recreation page on Facebook. For more information about cancellations and delays please visit: http://www2.portlandschools.org/school-closing-information
Moring Drop Off Reminder
Morning drop off should not occur earlier than 8:05 am. There is no supervision before this time. Students must not be dropped off at school in the morning before 8:05am, unless they are attending Morning Rec Program. If you need before school care for your child please call 874-8455.
Lost and Found
Just a friendly reminder to please check the Lost and Found for missing items. Lost and Found is located toward the back of the front lobby. Remember to sign in with the office if going to the Lost and Found area during school hours. Thank you!
