2017 September Opening Procedures

I trust that this school year has been both productive and enjoyable for you, and that you have many happy memories of your past school year at Riverdale.



Please read the following information (re: opening day procedures - September, 2017) very carefully:



1.    Next year the total amount for the activity fees will increase for the first time in a decade from $50 to $55 to cover the increased cost of running activities in the school.   The Student Activity Fees are $25.00 for the Yearbook, $4.00 for the new agenda app and $26.00 to support extra-curriculars or can be combined for a single fee of $55.00. For payment, Riverdale is moving to online payment for all school related fees with the SchoolCashOnline system. To register students and pay fees click on the following link Schoolcashonline.  Other payment options are available through the main office.



2.     Grade 10 to 12 students will pick up their timetable and information package on Wednesday, August 30th. Grade 10’s are to report to the auditorium between 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m., Grade 11’s report to the auditorium between 1:00 p.m.-2:00 p.m. and Gr. 12’s are to come from 2:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m.  Parents/guardians or a sibling with a note can pick up another student’s timetable during the designated times.  Grade 9 students will receive their timetables and pay their activity fee on Thursday, August 31st at Moving on Up.



3.       On Tuesday, September 5th, Grade 9 students only should be at school at 9:15 a.m. to find their Home Form.  Their Home Form class will be from 9:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. At 11:00 a.m. they will be dismissed for the day.  Grade 9 students who did not pick up their timetable on Thursday August 31st  should come between 8:30 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. to pick up their timetable before class starts.

Grade 10 to 12 students will report to their Home Form class at 11:30 a.m. Class will be from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. At 12:30 they will be dismissed for the day. Grade 10-12 students who did not pick up their timetable should come between 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. to pick up their timetable before class starts.

On behalf of the staff I would like to wish you a very happy and safe summer and we all look forward to seeing you back at Riverdale in September.

Today's Weather

Entrance Restrictions

Special restrictions have been put in place to control the enrolment of Riverdale to ensure the school population does not greatly exceed the building capacity. Riverdale C.I. is a closed school that only accepts students in regular program who are going from grade 8 to grade 9. Students must apply by March 1 of their grade 8 year to be eligible for admittance. Riverdale does not admit students after this point. Please contact the school to determine if you are eligible for admission.

Attendance, Lates and Signing Out

Being in class every day, on-time and ready to learn is essential for all students.
If a student is going to be away from school please follow the procedures outlined in this letter.

When a student is more than 15 minutes late for school, they must sign-in at the Attendance Office. If they are late because of an appointment, or similar situation, it is best if they arrive at school with a note indicating why they are late.

If a student needs to leave before the end of the school day, we must have contact with a legal guardian before they can leave. The best way for them to do this is to have a note from home when they come to sign-out. Where this is not possible, we will need to contact a guardian before they are able to leave which may cause delays.

Many of our students attend Jummah Prayer on Fridays. In order to accommodate this, we have a letter for families to sign giving permission for students to sign-out weekly. If this applies to your, please complete the form available below. Mosque Permission Form Sept 2014.doc
