At the school, district, and state level your feedback is always important to us. As we wrap up what is likely the most unusual year in the history of education, one of the items that factors in to our overall state report card profile is the parent, student, and teacher survey. Please review the letter below provides a link and the access code with which to complete the parent opinion survey. Your feedback is important to our school as we plan for next year and as other parents look to this information to inform their decisions about middle school. Please take a moment to provide some feedback that we can use to celebrate or to grow from. Thank you for your feedback and unwavering support of Riverside Middle School!
Parents or Guardians,
Summer School Applications are now available for students that are required or have been invited to attend summer school. If you have any questions, please contact Danielle Orgovan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students interested in taking a virtual class this summer should follow the steps on the document linked below and contact school counselor, Bethany King, with any questions. She can be reached at email@example.com. Please note that these are traditionally year long classes taught in 6 weeks and you must have access to a computer and internet throughout the course.
In preparation for 2021-2022, we need to know if your student's transportation method will change for the new school year.
If the method of transportation is going to change, we need you to complete the 2021-2022 Transportation Request Form below and return it to Mrs. McDaris, our Guidance Clerk, as soon as possible. Forms should be submitted to the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This applies to current virtual and brick-and-mortar students.
If the transportation method is not going to change for next year, you do not need to complete the form.
Brick and mortar AND virtual students enrolled in Algebra I will be taking the End of Course Test (which counts 10% of their grade) in person at RMS on May 26, 2021 (make-up testing will take place on May 27, 2021).
Virtual Students should RSVP here regarding their intention to attend.
As you review the state testing schedule, we ask that you not schedule any early dismissals on these days, and that students arrive to school on time (prior to 8:30am). Once students begin testing, they must continue and finish. Please make every effort to have your student present for testing days. If a student must be absent, there are makeup testing days built into the schedule.
Also, per state testing security mandates, for the duration of the testing session, students may not have access to any devices such as cell phones.
Should you have any questions, please reach out to us at: email@example.com / 864-355-7912 OR firstname.lastname@example.org/ 864-355-7913 We appreciate your support in helping us complete required state testing.

ALL 8th-12th grade students, along with a parent/guardian and a school counselor, are required to participate in an Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) conference each year. This is a state-required meeting to discuss your student’s current career and future interests and review important information as they begin to prepare for high school. As the IGP sign-up deadline has now passed, counselors will be contacting students to schedule these meetings.
We ask that all families view this IGP Informational Video and review the documents included prior to your student’s meeting. The same information will be covered with all families. Please contact the appropriate Guidance Counselor listed below for any questions. We look forward to meeting with you. Thank you!

GCS requests community’s help in reversing COVID spread. As COVID cases in Greenville County and the State of South Carolina continue to rise, Greenville County Schools is asking students, parents, and the greater community to help ensure the return to in-person school in the district is not derailed by rising numbers. GCS is asking all citizens to follow DHEC guidelines to help reverse the current increase: wear a mask when in public, avoid large gatherings, frequently wash or sanitize hands and high-touch surfaces, stay home and away from others when sick, and seek medical advice when running a fever, developing a new or worsening cough, experiencing shortness of breath, or losing the sense of taste or smell.
As Greenville County Middle Schools start the process of returning to full-time in-person instruction, we ask that our Riverside Students & Families watch the attached videos as a review of proper procedures for wearing a mask.
