The Toronto District School Board and Toronto Catholic District School Board are experiencing school bus delays. In particular, parents of students who use Attridge Transportation, Wheelchair Accessible Transit or Sharp Bus Lines should expect significant delays and the possibility that some buses may not be running due to an unanticipated bus driver shortage. We are working to fix this issue as soon as possible.

Riverdale C.I. Upcoming Events


Welcome Back BBQ and Meet the Teacher Night – Wednesday, September 28th, 2017 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
All parents and guardians from every grade are invited to attend a welcome back BBQ and informal information evening. Each subject area will have information regarding their curriculum and course outlines. Teachers will be available to talk about their classes and the course expectations. The format of the evening does not lend itself to individual conversations with teachers about individual students, but it is a good way to start communication. A light dinner, with vegetarian and Halal options will be served. Younger siblings are welcome.

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
