Frequently Asked Questions

  • When should our children be dropped off or walk to school in the morning?

    • We have supervision at school from 8:00-8:10 a.m.  The bell for entering the school rings at 8:00 a.m. and school begins at 8:15 a.m.

  • Where should I drop off my children in the morning?

    • Please drop them off in the parking lot on Linden Street.  Students will then walk to the playground via the sidewalk on the south side of Riverside School.  Please do not drop them off in front of the school as busses and day care vans need the lane open by the curb on Linden Street.

  • What time does school end each day?

    • Our learning day ends at 3:15 p.m.  We ask that all students are picked up by 3:25 p.m., as we only have supervision until then.

    • If your child is enrolled in EC/4K, they should be picked up from the parking lot on Linden Street.
