Calling all four-year-olds!
Our preschool classrooms still have room for qualifying students. Classes begin Monday, September 11th. If you’re interested in finding out if you qualify, stop by the office today! A birth certificate and immunization record to get registered!
We want to remind parents that morning supervision at Chikaming begins at 7:35 am and begins at Three Oaks at 7:45 am. Please remember that for the safety of your child, they should not arrive before those times. If you have any questions, please call either school office. The start time at Chikaming has been changed to 7:45 am.
End of Day Parent Pick-up at Three Oaks
At Three Oaks, I would like to direct families to use what used to be the bus lanes as pick up lanes in the afternoon. If you would pull to the farthest open spot and wait for their students to come to your car that would be great! Keep in mind that as we work through this process, patience is necessary! We are working to change the signs and markings for this school year.
School Leadership Team
Our School Leadership Team meets regularly to establish and monitor goals for the school as well as accomplish required state tasks. This team is comprised of school staff members – but we are looking for a parent and/or community member to join our team as we seek to have input from all stakeholders. If you are interested in joining this team, please email Mrs. Clark for details.
RV Elementary Attendance Procedures
It’s important to let the school know first thing in the morning if a student is going to be absent along with the reason for the absence.
If you plan to go on any field trips with your child please remember you need to be an Approved Volunteer. To become an approved volunteer please click on the following link to begin the process: https://bib.com/SECUREVOLUNTEER/RIVER-VALLEY-SCHOOL-DISTRICT/.
Background checks are completed at no cost to our potential volunteers. Volunteers who have already been approved for the 2016/17 school year do not need to have another background check completed for this school year. If you need assistance, please contact your child’s school office.

River Valley Athletics
Season Sport Passes
If you are planning on coming to many sporting events at River Valley it might be a good idea to consider our family pass ticket option. This pass allows admission for everyone in the immediate family to enter all RV athletic events by simply showing the pass or telling the ticket taker the number for your pass.
Each family pass costs $150 and is good for all home sports in all seasons! It is a great bargain for your family and a one-time cost for the whole year!
Tickets for all games (home and away) can be purchased from your school office for $3.00 each.
