We are pleased to announce that Mrs. Medrano will be taking her maternity leave October 25th and expects to return on April 1st, 2019. Please join me in wishing Mrs. Medrano a healthy delivery and all the best with her newborn.

We are excited to welcome two new staff members to the RVCS team:

  • Lori Thomas, who has a wealth of experience, will assume Mrs. Medrano‚Äôs responsibilities and support our mathematics instruction.
  • Steven Norman is the new academic counselor. He will provide academic, career, and personal/social counseling students for students on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you would like to schedule an appointment or ask any questions, he can be reached at norman@riovalley.org.

Wednesday October 31st

Students are welcome to dress up (no masks please) and participate in a desk-or-treat put on by the teachers and staff. Lunch will run 15 minutes longer to provide time for this activity.

Students who do not celebrate Halloween are encouraged to participate in their regular morning classes, but then are welcome to leave at lunch or eat in the library. If you prefer your child does not attend school at all on this day, please make sure they are completing their school work from home.

Fog Willow Farms Excursion October 31st 9:30 am

11011 Cecatra Dr. Wilton, CA 95693

Fog Willow is not a farm that you will find mazes, cannons, and scary creatures. Fog Willow is a friendly, safe, exciting “Edu-tainment” farm where you can celebrate all that is agriculture, all that is family, and all that is fun.

We ask that the students wear closed toe shoes. The weather looks good for the moment, but if rain is in the forecast, please make sure your children and assisting parents are ready to walk around a farm and are dressed accordingly.
