Welcome to Rio del Mar Elementary
Where kind hearts and open minds rule
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year at Rio del Mar Elementary! Our office will reopen on Monday, August 3rd from 8:00 – 3:30 in case you know of any student who needs to be enrolled.
Our first day of school is Thursday, August 13th.
1st – 6th Grade Class lists will be posted on the library window next to the office Tuesday, August 11th at 5:00. We make every effort to ensure all children are placed. However, accidents can happen. If your child is not placed, please come to the office first thing Thursday morning and Cynthia or Nina will assist you in finding the proper classroom. I appreciate your understanding and patience.
Kindergarten class placement letters will be mailed on Friday, August 7th letting you know who your child’s teacher is going to be and what room they will be assigned. Included in this letter will be information about the Kindergarten Orientation, which is scheduled for Tuesday, August 11th. Mark you calendar! Children will have an opportunity to meet their teacher, see their classroom, become more acquainted with the school campus and hopefully reduce some of the first day jitters.
As a reminder, Wednesdays are normally “restructured” which means we have an early dismissal at 12:20 for all students.
If your child is a Kindergartener, he/she will have a longer day on these “restructured” days and will be dismissed at 12:20. All PM Kindergarteners will be come to school in the morning on Wednesdays and will be dismissed at 12:20.
On the first day of school, we send students home with the “first day packet” that contains a letter from me as well as information from the district. Please take a moment to read through the attached pamphlet, as there are a few critical pages, which will be specified in my letter. Thank you for your support with this.
I look forward to another great year and working in partnership with all of you.
