Parking Lot Change of Direction

We would like to announce that the Riverside pick up/drop off flow of traffic will be changing back to how it was prior to this year, effective Monday, December 19th.  We would like to thank you for being patient with the current routine as we tried to explore an option to alleviate traffic congestion on 6th street.  While we believe the congestion was reduced during pick up, we do not believe it is as safe a routine as we’ve had in the past.

Again, effective Monday, December 19th the direction of traffic at Riverside Elementary for pick up/drop off will return to the more ‘natural’ flow of traffic.  Please view the map below to see the new routine.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at your convenience.

Thank you,

Darrin VandenBerg, Principal
