  • Riverside Gets Vaccinated!

    It is with great pride and excitement that we bring to you this news! This week CMSD started the vaccination process for all interested district educators. Over the next few weeks, CMSD will vaccinate approximately 7,000 people. Many of our Riverside educators received their first shot today and many more will be heading over to Max S. Hayes High School or East Technical High School at some point within the next several days. These vaccinations put us one step closer to being back in our building with all of our amazing Owls!
