Offline Purchase Deadline: February 8 - March 17, 2016
Online Purchase Deadline: February 8 – April 27, 2016
This year, Riverside is using TreeRing to make our yearbooks. We made the switch to TreeRing for two reasons:
Custom Pages: Every student gets a one-of-a-kind printed copy of the yearbook, containing two free 
pages that they can customize with personal photos.
Buy a Book, Plant a Tree: TreeRing plants a tree in our school’s name whenever someone from our school purchases a yearbook. (And here’s a bonus: They print on recycled paper.)
Our book this year will be 84 pages, including the free custom pages, printed fully in color. The cost is $18.00.
In order to buy your book and start your custom pages, visit www.treering.com and create an account. You’ll 
want to have our school passcode handy. That number is 1014382736071295.
P.S. If you run into any trouble at all while setting up your TreeRing account, they have a great support team. Please contact them at support@treering.com.

Safety and Supervision

 
By law, our staff provides supervision for your students for up to 30 minutes before the first bell and up to 30 minutes after the dismissal bell, in addition to all instructional hours. Students who ar-rive prior to 7:50 a.m. and are still here after 3:40 p.m. will be sent to Daycare and charged a $10/day drop-in fee.
 
The first bell rings at 8:30 a.m. The tardy bell rings at 8:45 a.m. Safety patrol is dismissed from the crosswalk at Red-stone Avenue no later than 8:40 a.m. so the crossing may be un-manned after this time.
With safety in mind, please be on time!
 
Any transportation changes MUST be made IN WRITING (or in person). In the event of a mid-day change or an emer-gency, an e-mail or even a picture of a signed note (via email) will do! Just send it to your child’s teacher and/or brunsonb@mail.okaloosa.k12.fl.us.
 
Drop-off begins @ 8:00 a.m.
Dismissal begins @ 3:10 p.m.

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Our goal is to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for all of our students and staff at Riverside. We rely heavily on each of you as parents to help us reach that goal. As we venture into cold and flu season, here are a few key reminders for everyone that will enable us to keep your child and our staff members as healthy as possible.

Per school board policy:

  • If your child has a fever (100.0 degrees or higher) they must remain at home until they are fever free.
  • If your child is vomiting or has diarrhea they should remain home for 24 hours after the last episode of vomiting or diarrhea.
  • Rashes: Because of the probability of rashes being contagious any student with a rash of unknown origin (undiagnosed) should remain at home until the rash has resolved or written permission is obtained from a physician permitting attendance. A copy of that doctor's note should be forwarded to the classroom teacher and school nurse. Any student with an undiagnosed rash at school should be picked up by a parent and advised to get a medical assessment.

In regard to open wounds/sores: Accidents happen! Boo boo's are to be expected with young children. We ask that students with open wounds or sores have all open draining lesions covered with a bandage prior to arrival at school. Once those wounds have scabbed over and are no longer bleeding/draining a bandage is not necessary. This will protect your child from developing a secondary infection in their wound and will prevent other students and staff from being exposed to potentially infectious bodily fluids.

We appreciate everyone's cooperation in this matter and we look forward to sharing a happy and healthy 2015-16 school year with your family. If you have any questions, concerns, or are interested in reviewing school board policy regarding frequently encountered illness and injuries in the school setting please contact the school nurse or administration. We also greatly encourage you to visit the Okaloosa County School District website and review the Documents/Policies section.

Sincerely,

Candace Evans, LPN
