Superintendent's Message

September 1, 2021


Dear Riverview Community,


Welcome back!  We had a great first day of school.  Our Central Office Team was able to visit schools, classrooms, and programs at every school and everything went smoothly, with tremendous excitement to resume full day school, onsite.  It was so nice to visit with our students, staff, teachers, as well as a number of parents during the Kindergarten Soft Start Transition Program. 

Thanks to so many for making this such a successful start, including our PTSAs, parent volunteers, businesses and community organizations. 


I am looking forward to resuming so many of the activities, athletics, and events we have enjoyed over the years, such as middle school sports, career and technical education events, community service activities, and the visual and performing arts.  We will continue to follow state and county guidance and implement health and safety protocols through our school safety and health plans. 

We have 1.7% of our students participating in our new K-8 Edgenuity Virtual Program through Puget Sound Educational Service District, to keep as many students as possible engaged and enrolled as Riverview students. We are currently setting up additional support systems for the K-8 virtual program and are looking forward to celebrating the first day of school for that program and most of our Riverview Learning Center Programs on Tuesday, September 7. 

I am looking forward to interacting with everyone more than ever this year!


Sincerely and appreciatively,

Dr. Anthony L. Smith
Riverview School District
