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
