School Messenger
With our new partnership with SchoolMessenger, the district can now send text alert notifications to those of you in our Riverview community who have a cell phone number on file with the district.  Once you have decided to opt-in, you will begin to  receive the alerts regarding important communications like school delays or closures.

We have heard from some of you that you either didn't receive the text and would still like to opt-in.  Good News!  You simply  text "Y" or "YES" to 67587 from your phone and you will be signed up for SchoolMessenger going forward.
