Things to Know:

  • Toys for Tots:  The United States Marine Corps and the United Way of Fresno County have again teamed up this holiday season with Central Unified to collect new, unwrapped toys thru December 13thto distribute as Christmas gifts to needy children ages 0-12 in the community. Collection bins are posted in the Rio Vista front office.  Donations can be dropped off before school and after school.
  • Rio Vista Yearbook:  Yearbooks are now on sale!  If you have not yet purchased your child’s yearbook, do so before Winter Break to receive the $5 discount.  Yearbooks are $45 thru December 31st.  Go on-line to www.yearbookordercenter.comto order your yearbook.
  • Foggy Day Schedules:  Fog season is fast approaching!  Channel 18 begins broadcasting foggy day schedules at 5:30 p.m.  Updates are announced at approximately 7:30 a.m., 8:30 a.m., and 9:30 a.m.  (Classes begin on time.)
  • Holiday Joy:  Each year, the students, parents, and staff members of Central Unified School District participate in the Holiday Joy canned food drive, which is co-sponsored by God’s Family Church in Fresno.  The food drive unites the efforts of the district’s schools and departments into one coordinated community-wide campaign. Thanks to the generosity of all, the Central Unified community provided holiday meals to over 300 Central families last year!  Dry and canned food items---particularly canned meats, soups, dry pasta, baking items like flour and sugar, cereal, juices, canned fruits and vegetables---are some of the recommended items for donation.  Unfortunately, we cannot accept jars of baby food, but rice cereal is allowed.  Also, we cannot accept any expired food, so be sure to check the date.  The Holiday Joy campaign will conclude on December 11th.
  • 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 code is available on our website for you to review.
  • 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.
  • 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.    
  • CAMPUS VISITORS:  Please remember that all parents visiting the school must first check in at the front office.  If you are going to be on campus you must have a visitor badge at all times. Angelica or Mia in our front office will be more than happy to assist you!
