May 4, 2020

Dear Riverdale Families and Community, 

On Monday, April 20, 2020 Governor DeWine closed Ohio schools for the remainder of the year extending our distance learning. One of the challenges we have been faced with is graduation. We developed a plan and discovered that it would not be approved. We developed another and another and another. Each plan did not meet the criteria that we did not know of. For this reason we waited for guidance from the Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Department of Education. Here is our plan:

Graduation:
We will be holding an individual graduation ceremony for each senior and their parents. There will be 10 or less people for each individual graduation. Photos and video recordings will be taken during the graduation ceremony. We will “air” the graduation video at a later date for all to see. When and how you can view the video will be communicated through Facebook, Twitter, our website, and our app.

Senior Parade: 
On May 17th we will have a parade for our seniors. This is a great opportunity for the Riverdale Community to show support for the Class of 2020 and to send them off on their next chapter in life. You can see the parade route on our website. 

The meal pickup program will continue through May 20, 2020. Additional dates and times have been set for students to pick up their personal items and turn in all school owned items such as textbooks, Chromebooks and chargers.

May 13th School Hard Copies Due-Drop off in Wharton, Mt. Blanchard, Forest 11:30-12:30
May 14th Senior Chromebook/Textbook Drop-Off and Personal Item Pick-up
                10 AM - 12 PM or 4 PM - 6 PM at Riverdale Schools

May 19th 3rd-5th, 9th-11th Chromebook/Textbook Drop-Off and Personal Item Pick-up
                10 AM - 12 PM or 4 PM - 6 PM at Riverdale Schools

There have been ups and downs for everyone in the school community. We are going to finish this school year strong and please know that we are preparing for different scenarios next fall. We expect more information from the ODH and ODE in the coming weeks and months.

Best regards, 

Jeff Young, Superintendent
