Safety and Security

The safety and security of our staff, students, and campuses is a top priority. Riverside is dedicated to ensuring that processes and policies are in place to safeguard our children and staff from unexpected catastrophes to the best of our abilities. Riverside teams with professionals such as teachers, administrators, mental health professionals, local first responders, local emergency managers, law enforcement, and school board members to discuss, review, and update district safety plans.

For further information regarding Riverside's Emergency Operations Plan, please reach out to Superintendent Kaczor.
