  • Dear Parents and Guardians,

    As you know, Final Exams and Early Release days for 9-11 grade students begin tomorrow Friday, May 21, and then continue next week May 24 - 26. During this time, the school day will run from 8:20 - 12:00. The full schedule of final exams can be found on the school website - www.RiverwoodICS.org. If your child is exempt from a final exam, he/she does not need to attend class/school. The teacher will mark the absence as excused.

    It's hard to believe but the last day of school is next Wednesday, May 26.

    Students should return all textbooks to their teachers by next Wednesday as well as any other school materials that were not returned last year due to COVID. If your student has questions about what to return and when, please have them reach out to their respective teacher/coach.
    Rising 10th -12th graders should keep their device over the summer and should not return it until they graduate from Riverwood or withdraw from the school.

    Good luck to all Raiders during final exams - finish strong!

  • Dear Parents and Guardians,

    Just a few weeks of school left to close out what has been a challenging, but amazing, year! Below is the announcement from FCS and Superintendent Looney regarding an update to the mask policy for FCS. Please read carefully and speak with your student about the changes.


    Superintendent Mike Looney shared that Fulton County Schools will be taking a measured, cautious approach to relax COVID-19 protocols, which includes updating COVID-19 restrictions and mask mandates in phases. There are several factors spurring these changes, including Governor Brian Kemp’s lifting of restrictions on group sizes and ending a ban on large gatherings. Also, vaccines are now readily available to those 16 years of age and older. In this new phase, employees and students who may have been exposed to COVID-19 but have been fully vaccinated will not have to quarantine, providing they are symptom-free.

    Beginning Monday, May 3, 2021:

    · For outdoor activities only, masks will be recommended but not required for students in grades 9-12 and employees in high schools. All other safety protocols will remain in effect for this group of individuals.

    · At school-sponsored outdoor events and activities, masks will be recommended but not required for visitors/spectators.

    · Capacity limitations are lifted on all outside school venues (stadiums, fields, etc.).

    · Coaches may attend banquets.

    All other existing COVID-19 risk mitigation strategies will remain enforced for the balance of the 2020-21 school year. This includes requiring all staff, students, and visitors to wear a mask while inside an FCS facility, and adhere to recommended social distancing, surface sanitizing, and handwashing. More information on the new mask mandate can be found here: https://www.fultonschools.org/cms/lib/GA50000114/Centricity/Domain/228/MaskUpdate.pdf

    Have a great week,
