• Riverside School Arrival and Dismissal Procedures 2018-2019

    PARKING LOT
    Due to our staffing numbers the parking lot now has dedicated spots for each staff member which are indicated by number. Parents are asked not to park in numbered spots or to block vehicles in. There are two visitor spots that parents are encouraged to use. Vehicles that are blocking designated parking locations will be towed at the owner’s expense. The middle lane must be kept open for emergency vehicles at all times.


    STREET PARKING
    Parents may park on Montrose and Glencliffe from 10:00 AM-3:30 PM, except during special events. At all other times we ask that you park on neighboring streets, such as Birchwood and Westland. This will allow for carline vehicles to quickly and safely leave the school area.

    No parent/guardian vehicles should be entering the parking lot during arrival or dismissal.

    DISMISSAL SAFETY REMINDER

    When picking up your child(ren), please DO NOT direct them to walk in front of cars, or in between cars, in order to get into vehicles. Please ensure you are parked along the curb when picking up your child. This is for the safety of all of our students and families.

    The goal of our dismissal is to get all students home safely in a timely fashion. When cars stop in the middle of the road waving students to get in the car this poses serious safety concerns. Please follow our dismissal guidelines and expectations.
