Hello Riley Family, The winter season is near and the snowy weather is soon to be here. In the event of an emergency school closing, a delayed opening, or an early dismissal due to inclement weather, it is crucial that you review the "Home and School" procedures with your child. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to ensure that all emergency contacts and pick-up information is updated on Genesis and your childcare arrangements are in place. Upon an early dismissal due to inclement weather it is imperative that someone is available to pick up your child at the prescribed time. Please read and review the information on the "South Plainfield School District Emergency School Closing" document for detail information, procedures and resources including emergency closing notifications and protocols. Please post and save this information going forward during this winter season. Be safe and always continue to be great and kind. Mrs. T. Grier-DuPiche Principal

JOB WELL DONE Riley Student Council! The Riley Elementary Student Council Members gave a wonderful presentation of "What's Going On At Riley Elementary School?" at the Board of Education Meeting last night. The students shared several pictures, events and lesson activities students are experiencing and engaged in. These included creating and observing the effects of water and erosion, making applesauce after reading and learning about Johnny Appleseed, wearing pink on "PINK OUT FRIDAY" to bring awareness to Breast Cancer Month, and having special guests like Firefighter Dad, Mr. Kirkland, who taught kindergarten students about the importance of fire safety. The students also shared how they were excited to have the assembly with former pro AFL Football Player, Dewayne West, was able to have their annual Halloween Parade and festivities. Lastly, the students included photos of the Veterans Day Assembly Ceremony and how they look forward to watching Bedtime Story with Mrs. DuPiche every month. Thank you to the Riley Student Council Members and the parents for your continued support. Continue to shine bright like a diamond! Please enjoy the pictures below.
