    Uniform Policy


    Students are required to wear the usual khaki or navy blue shorts or pants. Any Riverside spiritwear or Riverside

    uniform shirts are acceptable. Hoodies ARE permitted this year. 



    Water Bottles


    Students should bring a water bottle, as there is a refillable water station located in our hallway. A big issue that

    has developed is students not bringing a water bottle and asking teachers or the nurse for a cup. Please make

    sure they have a labeled water bottle to prevent this issue!


    School Supplies


    • whiteboard, 4 dry erase Expo markers
    • white board eraser (can be a sock, piece of felt, or a small piece of material)
