Welcome to Riley Elementary!

Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten Registration  will be held Wednesday, March 15 from 1:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. at the Wilson Center Gymnasium located at 101 West Cass Street.. No appointment is necessary but you should plan on registration taking about 30-45 minutes.

New Secretary at Riley!

Greetings Riley Elementary Family,

As you may have heard, we have a new secretary at Riley Elementary. Sheila McCastle has replaced Sarah Voisinet. Mrs. Voisinet took a new position, and Sheila has been hired as her replacement. Her first day at Riley will be Monday, March 6th. We are very excited to have her in this position and wish Mrs. Voisinet best wishes as she will be missed. Please make sure that when communicating in email that you make a correction on whom to email.

Thank you for your time and support.

coldAs the cold and flu season is approaching, it is so important to remind our kiddos to wash their hands.  We have also installed hand sanitizing stations in the cafeteria to help assist in clean hands before eating.

Letter from the Mid-Michigan Health Department

 Also, our School Policy is that any child with a FEVER, must be FEVER FREE for 24 HOURS before they can return to school.  If your child is sick, please keep them home.

Recess in the winter can be a lot of fun, especially when students are dressed appropriately! Please make sure your child has a warm coat, snow pants, boots, mittens or gloves. We do have a limited supply of hats and gloves, but we do not provide snow pants or boots. 

Speaking of recess, we adhere to the following district-wide guidelines:

* If the temperature or wind chill (temperature/wind chill = “feels like”) is 0 degrees or below, students will be inside for recess.

*Students may only be excused from outdoor recess with a signed doctor’s note. If your child is well enough to come to school, he/she is well enough to go to recess.

 Lunch Deposit Slip
To ensure proper credit, please make sure to include a deposit slip with all lunch money turned in to the school.  Print deposit slips here.  Thank you.

Preschool Program

If your child is not old enough for Kindergarten, St. Johns Public Schools also offer a Preschool program.  Please click on the following link if you are more interested in learning about this program and let us know if you have any questions.  St. Johns Preschool Program


***If your child needs a temporary (1 day) bus change for their ride home, you AND the receiving parent (where the child is temporarily going) both MUST either call or send a note to the office.  A Bus Pass can NOT be granted without notes or calls from both of you.   Thank you for following these necessary procedures.***
