Dear Riverdale Heights Families,
Parent Conditions for Learning Survey: Don’t forget to take the Conditions for Learning Survey. The survey contains items focusing on areas that range from student safety, to positive adult and student relationships, to school rules and how they are enforced. The results will be provided to each school in our district to be used with the student survey results for identifying areas of strengths and areas for improvement. You can access instructions and the link to the survey. A copy of the items on the survey is available by request. PV-Issued Devices:
Students who are attending school in person and have checked out a device (iPad/Chromebook) from the district are asked to return the device and charger to the classroom teacher by May 17. These devices will be collected, checked back in, and redistributed to the classrooms for use the rest of the school year.
Online Students that have checked out a device (iPad/Chromebook) from the district are asked to return the device and charger to the administration center (525 Belmont Rd) either on June 7 from 7:00am - 12:00 pm or June 8 from 1:00pm - 4:00pm.

Reminder - if you sold and/or ordered Nothing Bundt Cakes you must pick everything for your entire students order up from 4:30-6pm Friday this week at school. The students (and coordinating parents) who received orders under their name are responsible for Curbside Pickup on Friday and then should distribute to members outside of their household immediately after. This includes any orders through the online store and paper order forms. If there are multiple students going to the same household (or being picked up by the same person), please message firstname.lastname@example.org before noon Friday so we can combine orders for you ahead of time.
