In response to the COVID-19 health crisis, The Rivers School has closed its campus to all activities until further notice and has implemented a remote-learning program for all students. At the moment, we plan to utilize remote-learning until April 3, but it is possible we will need to extend its use beyond that date, depending on how the COVID-19 situation develops.

The goal of our remote-learning program is to provide instructional continuity and ongoing learning for our students during our school closure. While it would be impossible for such a program to replicate a regular school day, we believe this program will provide some structure and normalcy for our students during this uncertain time. It could even provide us all with an exciting opportunity to think differently about school and learning.

Online classes will begin on Wednesday, March 25. We ask that all students please familiarize themselves with the information on this site in order to be prepared to be an effective participant in this program.
