RV Elementary Updates/Reminders
Everyone smiled so wonderfully for picture day this week! You can access your child’s pictures by going to www.harringtonphoto.orderschoolpix.com – select the album Chikaming 2020-21. Your password is your child’s student ID # – next enter your email address and you are ready to order those beautiful pictures! Please call the school office if you have any questions!
Due to COVID, building water fountains are shut down until we reach Phase 6 in the MI Safe Start Plan. While we have cups available for students to get drinks through the day, all students are strongly encouraged to bring water bottles from home each day.
Proper clothing is required for going out to recess. The weather is getting colder so jackets/sweatshirts and proper footwear is needed to go outside.
According to our attendance procedures, it is important that families contact the school when students will be absent along with the reason for the absence. Please remember to give your child’s school office a call in the morning if they will not be in school.
RV Elementary School Supply List
We have put together a list of classroom needs, to help parents in school shopping. Please be aware that any supplies your child needs for success in school, we will provide. Because all kids love walking in with new supplies to start their year, this is a list of suggested items to purchase. Your child will not be behind or left out if they’re missing any of this list – we’ll make sure they have it!
If there is a change in your student’s transportation, the office must be notified via a note, phone, or email. Students without proper notification will be sent home the way that they would under normal circumstances.
If you have a transportation issue after 3:00 pm, the transportation department can be reached at 269-756-7899.
Family Sports Pass Ticket Option
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!
