Guidelines for School Volunteers and Visitors

With the start of a new school year upon us, we want to remind parents and other volunteers of the guidelines for visitors that are in place to ensure the safety of our students and staff. We value the positive impact of community volunteers and are grateful when parents and visitors are interested in supporting our schools. However, we have specific protocols which all prospective volunteers must follow.

All volunteers must submit an application to the school and receive clearance from the district before interacting with children in the school or chaperoning any school field trip.  Volunteers are now identified by two different categories:  Level I or Level II.

Riverside Middle School PTSA Proposed Bylaws

Riverside Middle School PTSA bylaws are up for renewal this year.  Bylaws are the rules our local unit must follow.  They provide structure of our local unit board, information on required meeting dates, and other information necessary for our unit to function.  Bylaws are adopted and amended by a vote of our unit's members at a general membership meeting.  PTA bylaws may not conflict with the National PTA or South Carolina PTA bylaws.  Please review the proposed bylaws that were presented by the PTSA Bylaws Renewal Committee and approved at the General Board Meeting on September 13, 2016.  They will be voted on at the General Membership Meeting on October 18, 2016 at 6:50pm that precedes the 7th and 8th Grade Orchestra Concerts at 7:00pm at Riverside Middle School.   Click for a copy of the proposed bylaws
