March 23, 2019 Dear Riverside USD 114 Community, As I have said so many times, the towns of Elwood and Wathena are wonderful places to live and raise families. On behalf of Riverside USD 114 and the Board of Education, I would like to say thank you to everyone who has helped our school during the recent flood evacuation and relocation of students. Our school is very blessed to have such a supportive school community. Our district has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from parents, volunteers, the Cities of Elwood and Wathena, Elwood and Wathena Police Departments, Doniphan County Sheriff’s Department, Kansas Highway Patrol, Elwood and Wathena fire departments, the Missouri Air National Guard, Doniphan County Emergency Management, Kansas Emergency Management, members of the Elwood Gladden Drainage District, our local businesses, and our local churches. It has been great to see so many people working together to battle the floodwaters to protect our community, specifically our East Campus in Elwood as well the homes and businesses of many of our families. Please know that we are grateful to each and every one of you for supporting our students and staff during this time. Riverside has been privileged to work side by side with you in our school family. None of our students could accomplish great things without the assistance of all of us working together to relocate them and support them. We are hopeful that the threat of flooding in Elwood and east Wathena will be short-lived and we can resume our normal operation in the near future. If anyone encounters problems the school can help with, please contact our administration and we will work closely with you as partners to provide assistance. Over the past week, I have witnessed two towns come together as one community who cares about its members. Please know that you are greatly appreciated. Your support means so very much to the young people in our schools. Warmest Regards, Robert W. Blair, Superintendent
