For additional details on entry/exit procedures please contact the school office or your child's teacher.



DISMISSAL MANAGER must be used for any dismissal instructions. In the event of an early release, you will need to access this and let the school know who will be picking up your child. It's also a way to communicate if a babysitter or friend's parent will be picking up your child. You can access it from your computer at www.schooldismissalmanager.com. The SDM app is no longer available for download. For quick access to SDM on your Apple or Android mobile device, watch this 90-second video. Please note that anyone with the prior version of the SDM app must remove it from their device before following the steps in the video. 



  Safety First at Drop-Off / Pick-up 


Your children’s safety is our #1 concern at Riverside School. Unfortunately, we continue to witness unsafe actions by drivers during the busy times of drop-off and pick-up that put children and adults in danger of injury and property in danger of damage. With that, we'd like the entire community to become familiar with the “Rules of the Road” in regards to drop-off and pick-up. 


"Rules of the Road" at Riverside School

(this document is also on the school's Back to School page that Mr. Weiss
referred to in his mid-August email to families)


Volunteer for 15-minute morning Safety Duty shifts


Please read carefully and share the “Rules of the Road” document with your spouse, caregiver, grandparents, or anyone who may be dropping off or picking up your child to ensure that these rules are followed at ALL times. Please sign the document and return it to Riverside School.
