A communication tool that allows Riverside staff to activate engagement across the community by providing two-way communication for updates, instruction, and more. It is convenient and accessible. It is text first and allows our staff to reach students and parents on the devices they already use. Text messages are more effective than voice calls. We know that 99% of test messages are opened, and 90% are read within the first few minutes. Download the Remind app on your phone today!!

- Tell then about non-school related topics
- Teach about their interests
- Engage in activities with them
- Tell hilarious stories – share inspirational stories – Do crazy things
Breathe-take two minutes each day to stop and breathe
Get at least 20 minutes of cardio each day
For two minutes each day-think/reflect on a positive experience from the last 24 hour
It’s Everything Riverside, in your pocket.
Riverside Community School District has a mobile app that helps students, parents, and community members know what is happening right from their phones. We know that families are using smartphones as a primary means to communicate. That’s why we’ve created an app that is custom-built for mobile. On the app, you can find cafeteria menus, real-time sports scores, contact information for staff, and event information.
You can download the app for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
