There will be a mini cheerleading camp for incoming 7th and 8th graders that are interested in cheer for this upcoming year. Cheer camp will be on Tuesday August 11th and Wednesday August 12 from 9-11am, in the East Campus Old Gym. We would like to have you fill out the attached google form, so we can get an idea of how many people are interested in participating. Students will need to make sure they have their school physical completed prior to attending camp. Students will also need to wear masks to the camp, per the Governor's mandate.

Fellow Cyclones – An update as to our start of school. Today the State Board of Education met as required by recent Kansas state statute to review COVID related education executive orders. In their meeting the board voted down the motion to uphold the Governor’s order delaying the start of schools until after Labor Day. That vote keeps us on a path to opening schools on our original start date of August 20th 2020. This date was approved by the USD 114 board of education at their regular meeting back in March. USD 114 is committed to continue our planning process for the start of school and have our schools open in a safe manner for both students and staff alike. Our task to plan for the start of school continues and rest assured, we will continue to do that regardless of the date. As I mentioned last week, we will ask for a bit of survey data from our families and staff so we can make the most informed decisions possible. Please find the family survey link in all our regular district communication methods and at the bottom of this message. I thank you in advance for your feedback. It will help our planning efforts to make the most informed decisions to start school. Because of the number of abnormal situations this pandemic creates across the state, news and information often changes quickly and without much notice. Additionally, situations that may be happening in a certain part of the state, may not necessarily be happening closer to home. I thank you all for your continued patience and support as we work in our planning for the start of the fall term. USD 114 will remain steadfast in helping make the best decisions possible for the good of our kids and staff.

Greetings Riverside family, this is Mr. Githens with an important announcement. This afternoon, during the governor's press conference, it was announced that K-12 schools in Kansas would not open until after the Labor Day holiday. We will make use of this extra time to plan and make the most of this situation. The delay in opening school will give Riverside more time to prepare for this unusual school year but it calls into question so many other things about what we already have on our calendars. It will take some time to sort through the implications of this order. We expect full details when the Governor’s formal executive order is released Monday July 20th, 2020. We also expect announcements from the Kansas State Activities Association for further guidance later as well. This is a difficult and challenging time. We stand committed to providing the best education possible while accounting for student and staff health and safety. Stay tuned for more details on how school will operate this fall. We can only start school when conditions allow us to do so. We are as anxious to have kids back in our building as you are. It is more than just what we do, it is who we are as cyclones. Rest assured, we miss our students! Thank you for your continued support of Riverside Schools. tbg

Summer conditioning for ANY of our 7th and 8th graders this season will begin on Monday, June 8th from 7:00 to 8:00 PM at the East Campus football field/track. We will do this each week Monday through Thursday at the same time each day. The participants will need to bring their own water/sports drink as the building will not be accessible at this time. If they need to use the restroom, I will make sure they get to one. For at least the first three weeks, we will be staying outside to do our activities and practicing social distancing. I do ask that if your student is not feeling well, do not send them. This is not mandatory so they will not be punished for not making it for feeling bad. I would like them to bring a backpack with an extra pair of shoes and a hoodie in it. We will use this in some of our activities as "extra weight". If the student would like to add a few other items, I have no problem with that. Cancellations of these sessions would occur if inclement weather is called for between the 6:30 to 8:30 time frame. I will open the gate between the two buildings for everyone to enter through. If you are the pick-up person, please be on time maybe even a tad early. I have tried not to miss something, but you may contact me through my email drkeller@cyclones114.org with any questions. Thank you, Mr. Keller.
