First Day of School

Greeting Raven’s Families! This is Sharon Bryant, Principal of Riverwood Middle School with a few reminders as we begin the school year!

We are excited to begin the school year on tomorrow, Monday, August 23rd. Students, please check PowerSchool or ClassLink and locate your homeroom class and room number if you have not done so already. Any student who is unable to access this information, please report to the media center in the morning to retrieve your schedule. If you are receiving this call then your child has been enrolled and we have a schedule prepared for them to begin tomorrow.

Please remember that at this time face coverings are required in all Johnston County Public School Facilities.

Please utilize our carpool for drop-off and pickup. Carpool drop-off begins at 7:35 am and pick up will be at 3:05. Please see the website for carpool drop-off instructions.

If you are a bus rider and have heard from your driver, please be at the stop 10 minutes before the designated time. Parents and students, please know this time could vary slightly during the first week of school. Please visit our website for additional information to include our “Here Comes the Bus Information” that will allow you to track your child's bus.

If you have not heard from a driver, parents please plan to transport your child to and from school until otherwise notified.

Sixth and seventh-grade walkers will enter the building through the doors at the end of the seventh-grade hallway.

Eighth-grade walkers will enter through the doors at the end of the seventh-grade hallway.

The tardy bell rings at 8:05 and all students will be required to enter through the front of the building.

Please visit our website for other pertinent information! Parents, please know that we are here to serve our students and community. We will be greeting and serving our students in the morning and unable to meet with parents at the start of the school day. Please visit our website for non-emergency matters and complete the form that relates to the concern you may have in order for us to contact you to discuss your inquiry. We value your time and do not want you waiting during the morning rush hours of the opening of our school year!

Students we are ready to SOAR as we kick off this school year!
