Student Handbook

On behalf of the Riverside Elementary staff, we welcome you to a new and exciting school year! Whether you are new to Emporia or a returning family, we look forward to building a partnership with you and your child that will last for many years. Our teachers, counselors, administrators, and support staff are committed to providing a quality experience in our schools!

We believe that your child’s success in school is dependent upon many factors. A few of these include regular attendance, good communication between school and home, and the hard work of our students and staff. Parents are a key to student success, and we invite you to be actively involved in our schools and in your child’s education.

Please refer to this handbook throughout the school year as a reference. It should provide answers to many questions that you may have, but feel free to call us or stop by the school office should you need more information. We are more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

It is a pleasure to have you as a member of the Emporia Public School family! We are looking forward to working with each of you in the coming year!
