August 7, 2020 | District Update

Dear Riverview Community: The Riverview School District continues to work on plans for Remote Learning and Reopening of schools for the Fall of 2020. We thank everyone who has taken the time to contact us through stayengaged@rsd407.org, contacted building principals and district administration, as well as our School Board of Directors. All comments, questions, and information provided to us has been seen and reviewed and has informed our ongoing work.


All plans proposed and presented by the Riverview School District are pending School Board approval. The district will be providing regular updates on specific plans as they are finalized and approved in the near future.


Look for updates on plans including, but not limited to: Food Services, Transportation, Childcare, Kindergarten, Remote Learning for Secondary and Elementary students, School Schedules, Social-Emotional Learning, Preschool, Technology Updates, and more. Once plans are shared and approved, they will be uploaded to the district's Engage website, a home for all things related to Riverview's response and support through COVID-19.

Our Riverview Community of students, parents/guardians, families, staff, and community members have been appreciative of us sharing our thinking in "real time." This has allowed stakeholders to provide suggestions and raise great questions and provide excellent feedback on our planning. We have also had terrific conversations with our labor partners throughout these last several weeks.


One of the main goals through our work is to assist parents and staff in making appropriate plans, based on guidance we have and continue to receive from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), the Governor's Office, and Public Health - Seattle & King County. In addition, we are in the midst of concluding bargaining agreements with our two employee associations - Riverview Education Association and Public School Employees of Washington.


We understand that this continues to be very challenging times for our students and families and staff. Our work is focused on continuing to support the needs of our students and families, improving our Remote Learning model for the Fall of 2020, and working together to make sure each and every student is successful.
