Need to know

Things To Know:

Things to Know: • TARDIES: One of our Fantastic Four beliefs is to “Be there, Be ready!” This means to be in the seat before the bell rings – not running through the door as the bell rings. Timeliness is an important skill that our students need to develop to be college, community, and career ready. • BIKE RIDERS: Reminder---students riding their bikes to school MUST wear a helmet. This is not a Rio Vista rule, it is a California Vehicle Code which carries a $150 fine if the student is stopped by law enforcement. Please make sure that your student wears a bicycle helmet when riding a bike – at all times, not just coming to and going from school. We appreciate your help in enforcing this safety issue. • PE CLOTHING: Students have the option of purchasing PE clothes with the school name/logo. If you prefer not to purchase PE clothes, be sure to provide dress code compliant plain red shorts and plain gray t-shirts for use in your student’s PE class. (PE clothing will be available for purchase thru the PE department.) • STUDENT CHECK-OUT: Reminder---anyone checking out a student must ALWAYS bring their driver’s license, California ID or valid passport with them. If you do not have a proper ID, you will not be able to check a student out.

Parent Tip: Keeping Children Safe

Parents and caregivers who drive on campus and in neighborhoods near school can play an important role in enhancing safety near schools by following safe driving practices.

Dress Code Reminder:

• DRESS CODE: Please remember: 1) no leggings or tights may be worn unless they are worn beneath dresses, skirts, skorts, shorts or culottes, 2) excessive wear is not allowed, and 3) no skin nor any undergarments may show. Please keep jeans with excessive wear/excessive fraying for weekend wear. The district dress code guidelines is available on our website for you to review.
