Student/Parent/Teacher conferences are coming up in March. The elementary schools will be using PTCFast.com to make conference signups as convenient as possible this year. Please remember that there is no school on Friday March 20th, but students are expected to attend their conference.

PRESCHOOL SCREENING has been cancelled

The Rivendell Preschool Program will be conducting a screening this year on Friday March 20th. Please call the Westshire School at 802-333-4668 if you have a child within the district who will be 3 or 4 years old by August 31, 2020 to sign up for a time slot. This is a great way for the preschool teachers to get to know your child before the 2020-2021 school year. The screening is available for all children within this age range, even if they will not be attending the Rivendell Preschool Program. Two sessions will be held at each school 8:30 - 9:15 and 10:00 - 10:45 at Westshire and 12:00 - 12:45 and 1:30 - 2:15 at Samuel Morey.

Message from Barrett Williams

February 12, 2019
Good Evening,
We are expecting snow accumulation overnight with possible sleet and freezing rain in the morning. As we all know this could change several times between now and 5AM. Thursdays traditionally have been difficult days to have delayed starts because of the early release time. Moving forward the district will not have an early release on Thursdays if there is a need to have a delayed start. I will be sure to remind folks in the morning message on days that this applies.
Thank You,
Barrett Williams
Rivendell Interstate School District

RISD Strategic Planning Survey

The Rivendell Interstate School District is approaching the end of its current strategic plan that was developed in 2015. With a new administrative team in place I am excited for the opportunity to build upon the current foundation to create positive school climates and enriching academic experiences for our children in the future.

I would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to fill out our survey.
