From the desk of the principal…

Greetings parents and guardians,

We are in full swing of the school year.  I am hopeful that all of you are working closely with your child’s teachers to make sure that your student is doing his/her best.  In order for students to be on track for graduation, students must earn all required credits.  Failing a course puts your child at-risk of not being on track.

Successful students report to school on time every day and are prepared with required materials and supplies.  Parents, please make sure that your child is prepared and ready to learn daily.  Our school doors open beginning at 7:00 a.m.  Please ensure that your child arrives to school in time to complete the scan, go to the restroom and locker and be in his/her seat before 7:30 a.m. We continue to have a number of students reporting to the tardy room in the morning.  Again, this will not earn your child any academic credits.

After school, parents please make sure that your child is staying after school for academic support.  Recently, we have had some students loitering in the surrounding parks causing disturbances for the community.  This is unacceptable.  Students are not to be loitering after school.  If your child does not have any after school activities to attend, students are to leave and go home.  This ensures that our students are demonstrating respect the “TIGER” way.


I look forward to a rewarding and successful 1st semester.  Our students need to take advantage of the opportunities that Riverside University High School has to offer.  Parents, please continue to encourage your child to do their best, try their hardest and give their all!

In closing, let’s remember to be kind to each other.

Principal Harris
