Counselor Corner



We are continuing to cover the mindset EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE with our students this month. Below are discussion topics for the 4 topics within this mindset! Each of the 4 weeks left in October, we encourage you to stop and discuss that weeks question as a family.


DREAM BIG - As a family, discuss what your big dreams are as a whole and as individuals and what steps you are taking to achieve them.


EMBRACE CREATIVITY - As a family, talk about something you would like to try or learn more about.


THINK POSITIVE - As a family, look around you right now and talk about three things you see that are positive things in your life.


ACT & ADJUST - As a family, talk about something that you think is too hard. Now talk about why you should try to do it anyway!

Arrival & Dismissal Reminders

At Riverwood, SAFETY IS OUR #1 PRIORITY! We have nearly 760 students who go home each afternoon several different ways (bus riders, car riders, daycare, etc.). Our main goal is to keep each child safe by making sure they are dismissed per their parent’s instructions to a location with appropriate supervision.


In order to allow us to continue to support each parent’s dismissal plan, please continue to uphold the following arrival & dismissal-related procedures:


ALL CAR RIDER TRAFFIC WILL ENTER RIVERWOOD FROM THE WEST ON 44TH.

ARRIVAL REMINDERS:

  1. CAR RIDER TRAFFIC - Please enter Riverwood Campus from the west on 44th (no left turns).

  2. Please refrain from blocking driveways (Riverwood, Central, Neighborhoods, etc). Thank you for your help and understanding in this matter.

  3. Please do not leave your car unattended in the car rider line.

  4. Refrain from parking and allowing students to walk across the parking lot.

  5. Follow the correct path and wait in line to drop students off.

  6. Students MUST exit the vehicle on the RIGHT SIDE ONLY for safety purpose

  7. As you enter the school driveway, we ask that you please have your son/daughter ready for release, pull up as close as possible to the car in front of you in the car rider line.

  8. Please refrain from using cell phones and other distractions that may take away your attention from being observant. This will allow us to get more cars into the driveway and a steady flow of traffic.

  9. As you leave the school driveway, please be careful and cautious of traffic on the connecting streets


Dismissal Reminders

  1. CAR RIDER TRAFFIC - Please enter Riverwood Campus from the west on 44th (no left turns).

  2. Please pull as far right in the car rider lane (and on the shoulder) to allow traffic to pass (if needed).

  3. Please refrain from blocking driveways (Riverwood, Central, Neighborhoods, etc). Thank you for your help and understanding in this matter.

  4. Please allow our buses to enter and exit the campus.

  5. Please do not leave your car unattended in the car rider line.

  6. Please refrain from using cell phones and other distractions that may take away your attention from being observant. This will allow us to get more cars into the driveway, more students released, and a steady flow of traffic.

  7. As you leave the school driveway, please be careful and cautious of traffic on the connecting streets.

  8. Follow dismissal procedures - Safe ID card hung on the rearview mirror for easy and quick reference.

  9. Refrain from getting out of your vehicle.


Please be patient and courteous as both parents and students learn the procedures. The process does move quicker as everyone learns and follows the procedures.



If your child needs to go home a different way than usual, contact the Riverwood Office. If a need arises throughout the day for you to change your student's dismissal plan, call the school office by 1:30. It takes a considerable amount of time to dismiss our entire student body and the last hour of the school day is by far our busiest time. The later we get the information, the greater the likelihood a miscommunication could occur. Again, our students' safety is our #1 priority - please help us by being as prepared as possible.


Thank you for the continued understanding and patience during arrival and dismissal.
