With a new school year beginning, we would like to remind families that Riverview School District uses a variety of communications platforms to convey information, news, school delays, closures, and schedule alterations throughout the year.
The following is a list of the various ways you can become connected to the places Riverview School District communicates and how to stay informed on the latest news and happenings across the district.
The Riverview School District utilizes the ParentSquare communication tool for all district and school-specific communications with parents, guardians, and staff. In our transition to ParentSquare, we will be ending our use of the Constant Contact email distribution service and SchoolMessenger text alerts, effective immediately. All messages and alerts previously received through those platforms will now be sent directly to you through ParentSquare.
Unlike previous district communication tools, ParentSquare does not require parents/guardians or staff to “opt-in” to receive notifications. By using the email address(es) and phone number(s) you provide to the district, ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each active family and staff member. To access ParentSquare through a desktop computer or PC, you can register an account by visiting https://www.parentsquare.com/signin.
To download the free ParentSquare app, visit the App Store (iOS) or Google Play store (Android) today.
To learn more about ParentSquare, visit our ParentSquare information page.
Each school provides opportunities to subscribe to receive email notifications. Our recently redesigned school websites offer a “Subscribe” button next to the news feed on the home page. Clicking that button allows you to subscribe and receive an email notification when a new article is posted to the school’s website.
Email notifications are available to anyone who chooses to subscribe to them and are a great way for community members and family members who are not parents or guardians of our students to receive updated information on school and district news.
For those active on social media, Riverview School District communicates through three official platforms.
Like or follow the school district on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/rsd407)
Follow the district on Instagram (@riverview407)
Follow the district on X (formerly known as Twitter) (@Riverview407)
In terms of reporting school delays and closures to the local news media, the district uses Flash Alert, which transmits our messages directly to Seattle-area television and news stations. Flash Alert notifications are also available to come directly to you. To sign up for these notifications via email, text message, or both, visit: https://www.flashalert.net/signup/
The Riverview School District website (https://www.rsd407.org) is also a place to find the latest updates and information regarding happenings in the district. Through our sharing of articles, or use of pop-up “lightboxes,” we attempt to provide you with the most current and up-to-date information regarding any delays, closures, or emergencies.
To visit our school websites, please click below:
Carnation Elementary (https://www.ces.rsd407.org/)

Two departments currently have their own websites, available by clicking below:
