Updates from Riverview School District - August 26, 2021

Dear Riverview Community:


The purpose of this communication is to provide updates to our Riverview Community as we move closer to the return of full-time, in-person learning and the first day of school on September 1, 2021.


In this update, we share links to the new bus routes for the 2021-2022 school year, updates and additional information (including an updated FAQ) on Edgenuity and the Puget Sound Online Learning Cooperative virtual learning program, a link to September menus, and more.

 

2021-2022 BUS ROUTES NOW AVAILABLE FROM OUR TRANSPORTATION TEAM!


The Riverview School District is happy to share new bus routes with our Riverview Community, as well as a note from our amazing Transportation Team! If you have any questions regarding bus routes and how they relate to your drop-off or pick-up needs, please contact our Transportation Department at (425) 844-4540.


The Riverview Bus Drivers are excited for our drivers to return and drive our amazing students for the 2021-2022 school year!


​Please select the tab (or link) for your student’s school to see up-to-date bus routes for the new school year. Each year, and especially during the first few weeks of a new school year, bus routes can change. The inbound and outbound routes can be in a different order than the past.


Pick-up and drop-off times may also change, so it is best to not rely on previous year's bus schedules.


Bus numbers can also change, with some students needing two different buses, or riding a transfer bus. Most elementary buses will have a color assigned to their route. A placard with your bus’s color is located by the entrance door of the bus to help your child find their bus home.


If you have any questions regarding these routes, or any routes posted on the district website, please contact the Transportation Department Offices at (425) 844-4540.


Thank you! Riverview School District Transportation

Please note: The registration deadline is by the end of day on Tuesday, August 31.

  • Curriculum is self-paced at the grade level of the student.

  • Riverview students participating in our Alternative Learning Experience (ALE) programs including this virtual program, will begin their online coursework on Tuesday, September 7. Course beginning and ending dates are aligned to the RSD school calendar.

  • The program requires an adult guide (Edgenuity uses the term “Learning Coach”) to support the student through the online curriculum. This is especially important for elementary students.

  • Once registered, students/families will receive an email from the Edgenuity teacher with teacher contact information, links to the curriculum, and additional information for the courses for the semester.
