Riverside School has moved to remote learning for all of its students for the remainder of the school year. We are currently accepting applications for 2020-21 and interested applicants may contact Debra Mitchell.


RIVERSIDE SCHOOL IS COMMITTED to supplying appropriate information during the coronavirus / COVID-19 crisis.


That said, despite the coronavirus pandemic, Riverside students, teachers, administrators, staff and families—all with a touchpoint to the school—are actively engaged, dedicated and devoted to learning, teaching, information sharing and enjoyable endeavors.



▶ STUDENTS are continuing to learn via online lessons, and one-on-one Language Fundamentals classes are still happening.

▶ TEACHERS are unwavering in their commitment to educating students on core subject learning, as well as incorporating cooperative instructional strategies.

▶ FUN ACTIVITIES such as Morning Assembly continue daily, and we see dozens of familiar faces
log on to interact and share updates, sing songs and
tell corny jokes!





RIVERSIDE EXTENDS A SPECIAL THANK YOU to all who have contributed to the Annual Fund. Your support has enabled Riverside to upgrade the school’s technological resources like laptops, iPads and document cameras, which are so important in the current remote learning setting.


Below, please find additional information and please don’t hesitate to contact Riverside at: (804) 320-3465 with any questions or feedback.
