Upcoming Dates:
March 20 - 24- Dancing Sue!
March 28- Multiage Parents Info Night
April 3 - April 7 - No School, Spring Break
April 10 - No School, Staff Development Day
April 21 - Grand Day


School Drop Off / Pick Up

The student hours are 7:40 A.M. – 2:10 P.M. 
Students should arrive each morning between 7:25 A.M. - 7:35 A.M. so they can make it into their classrooms before the second bell rings at 7:40. 

Please do not drop students prior to 7:25 A.M. or pick them up any later than 2:15 P.M. unless you’ve registered for Kid Connection. 

Our school staff members have several meetings before and after school, so there’s no supervision outside of these times. Your child’s safety is our highest priority

Absent Students

If your child is absent please call 651-460-1605. 

Please leave a message with details on why your child is absent. We need to know if they have a fever, are vomiting or have diarrhea.

 Your child’s safety is our highest priority, so if you need additional before or after school care, please click on the following link to learn more: Kid Connection-School Age Child Care - Farmington Area Community Education

Riverview Podcast

Check out the Riverview Radio Podcast. 
This is a way for parents to learn more about what we do at RVES every day. You can listen while you are making dinner, on your way to an activity, or just on your way to work. I listen to podcasts all the time because they are convenient and can be done anywhere. You can even listen to it with your child and ask them questions about the topic we are discussing for that week. Try it out! 

The purpose of starting a podcast for Riverview Families is to share information on the opportunities provided to students and staff and how they connect with our mission. It is really another way to connect with families and build collaborative relationships with our school community. This is the best one yet! Students tell us about Riverview in their own words. Love it!! 

Lunch & Breakfast Program

Our lunch program consists of a pre-pay account system. Each student is assigned a PIN number. This account is accessed each day as students go through the lunch or breakfast line. Students are encouraged to carry a positive balance at all times. You will be notified by the Food Service Department of low or negative balances. 
  • Elementary lunches are $2.80 and guest lunches are $4.00.
  • Elementary breakfast is available each school day from 7:25-7:40 AM, at a cost of $1.50. 
Any questions regarding your account should be referred to the Food Service Department at 651-460-3820. Payments can be made in the morning in the cafeteria (the mailbox). Use this link for more information.

Please contact the office staff by 1:00 if there is a change in transportation for your child. 

This is so we have time to let the teacher and child know about the change. We changed it from 1:30 because we have found that we need more time. This is to make sure students get home safe.

Volunteer Opportunities

I am looking for parents that would want to help hang art work up at RVES. This would be during the school day or after school until 5:00. 

Please email me at if you are interested. 

Any help is appreciated!

iPad Information

If your child did not keep his/her iPad over the summer, please plan time to check out your child’s iPad on August 25th or August 30th. The library will be staffed between the hours of 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. Parents must accompany their student when they pick up the iPad. The loan agreement will need to be completed before you can check out an iPad. 

Please go to the Farmington website and complete the iPad Loan Agreement and iPad Protection Plan prior to Aug. 25th/Aug. 30th in order to check out your child’s iPad. It’s located on the Family Tab on our website. 

FYI…If you are unable to attend Assessment Days, we will be checking out iPads during the first two weeks of school.

Birthday Treats

We are asking that if you want to provide a treat for your child’s birthday please make sure it is something other than food. 

It could be a game donated to the classroom or a book. If you have questions please contact Dr. Grengs.
