Recess

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.

Parent Volunteering

At Riley we welcome parental volunteers.  For safety and security of our students and the educational environment, we would like to remind all volunteers of the following guidelines

Parent Volunteer Guidelines

Volunteers - are anyone not employed by St. Johns Public Schools serving in capacity to assist within the school including, but not limited to, parents, grandparents, PTO members, guardians, etc.

-Parent Volunteers must be at the request of a teacher and must be supervised by the teacher while in the building.  Volunteers may be allowed up to 1.5 hours of time per day, unless otherwise requested by the teacher to the building administrator and approved by the administrator.

-Volunteers must be made aware of FERPA and confidentiality guidelines and agree to honor the law. (This will be done by either the classroom teacher or building administrator.)

-All volunteers must check-in at the office and sign-in and get their badge to help identify them as a volunteer.

-Volunteers are only allowed during normal school operating hours (9am-4pm), unless specifically serving in a scheduled before/after school activity approved by the administrator.

-Volunteers will only be working in the classroom with which they have volunteered, and if working in an unsupervised one-on-one capacity with students they must pass a mandatory background check.

-Volunteers may not bring other people with them to assist that were not requested by the teacher. (This includes younger children and siblings.)
