October 20 and 22 -

Dear Riverside Families 

This week is parent teacher conference week.  Instead of traditional conferences, Riverside ELC will be hosting a parent engagement night.. A slide presentation, discussion, questions and answer sessions will be held on Thursday night October 22 at 4:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m., 6:00 p.m. and 7 p.m..  Parents are encouraged to log on to one of the time slots using the zoom link sent out by your child’s classroom teacher. The same presentation will be at all time slots. 

Parents that have questions or concerns about their child can arrange an individual zoom time to meet with their child’s classroom teacher during virtual office hours that will be held on Tuesday, October 20th (after school/evening) or the morning of October 22.  Please contact your child’s teacher to set up an appointment. 

Thank you,

Tabitha Acree, Principal
