Superintendent's Message

February 2017

Greetings River View Local School District,

    We are officially over the half way point of the 2016-2017 school year.  I believe our elementary students were celebrating the "100th day of school" sometime last week.  It is amazing how time goes by so quickly.  
     Last month I wrote about snow days or potential cancellation procedures.  Ironically, we had a fairly mild month, other than a few small storm incidents that came into our area at the worst time of the morning.  We are hoping for a similar month in February.  Just a reminder; we have used four snow days to this point.  
      Our winter sports programs are beginning to near the end of their seasons, so if you have not had a chance to catch a game or a meet, try to get out and support our Bears!

     Many of our schools are scheduling their parent-teacher conferences.  Please make sure to contact your school to schedule an appointment to see how your kids are doing.  


Conference times are as follows:

  • ALL Elementary Schools:  Thursday, March 23 and Tuesday, March 28 from 4-7 p.m.
  • Junior High:  Thursday, March 2 and Thursday, March 9 from 3-6 p.m.
  • High School:  Wednesday, February 8 from 3-6:15 and Thursday, February 16 from 3-6:15

    In our educational world,  February and March always seem like the longest months of the school year.  The flu bugs are bad and the weather can take a toll on all of us.  Our kids are working to be able to get outside and experience the fresh spring air.  At the same time, we are preparing for the upcoming, "not so popular" state tests.  It is definitely a trying time for all, but we know we will get through it. The great news is, this season will end and a new will begin.  The ground will thaw, the sunlight will return and the leaves will start growing back before we know it.

      We hope everybody stays healthy and warm throughout the month of February.  March will be here before we know it. 
Mr. Summers
