Rivercrest ISD will have a two hour delayed start on Thursday, February 11, 2021. Weather forecast calls for precipitation with temperatures near freezing which could make roads hazardous. Classes will begin at 10:00 am on all Rivercrest campuses. Weather conditions are concerning throughout the weekend and as we prepare to come back to school next week. Monday, February 15th is a staff development day so the students will not be in school that day. Due to the expected extreme temperatures and chance of precipitation, Rivercrest is going to go ahead and call a two hour delayed start on Tuesday, February 16th. This will give us time to evaluate weather conditions

“Caught Being Kind” at Rivercrest Elementary We're celebrating Random Acts of Kindness Week February 8th-12th. Our faculty will be watching closely to "catch" students demonstrating kindness. If your student is "caught" then their name will be placed on the KINDNESS BANNER and they might win a door prize! If you'd like to reinforce KINDNESS at home, here are some things to think about. "Catch your child being good." Find something that you like and praise them for it! "You made your bed without being asked, that's terrific!" or "I was watching you play with your sister and you were very patient." These statements will do more to encourage good behavior over the long run than repeated lectures. Make a point of finding something to praise every day and be generous with rewards. Your love, hugs and compliments can work wonders and are often reward enough. Soon you will find you are "growing" more of the behavior you would like to see! Have fun spreading kindness and please let me know if I can assist you in any way. Stacy Irwin, RES Counselor

Rivercrest ISD will be closed today, Monday the 11th, due to hazardous road conditions. Classes will resume on a regular schedule on Tuesday, January 12th.
Rivercrest ISD will have a two hour delayed start tomorrow, January 11th, due to concerning weather conditions. The delayed start will give the District time to monitor road conditions as early morning temperatures could possibly fall below the freezing point. Buses will run two hours later than normal and classes will begin at 10:00. Notifications will be sent in the morning if there are any changes to this start time. Also, because Red River County has more than 30 active COVID cases, Rivercrest is under a mask mandate. All staff and students must wear a mask at school when they are not able to socially distance. Thank you, Stanley Jessee
Due to the increased number of active COVID cases in our communities during the Christmas break, Rivercrest ISD is postponing the return of school for students and staff until Monday, January 11th. This will allow students and staff more time to monitor, and quarantine, if necessary, after the Christmas break. Students and staff will return on a regular schedule on Monday, January 11th. High school basketball games will continue as scheduled. Thank you for your understanding, Stanley Jessee
Rivercrest ISD will release at 1:00 tomorrow to begin Christmas Break! Classes will resume Jan 6, 2021. Have a Merry Christmas!

Face Covering Update November 10, 2020 Dear Rivercrest Community, On October 28, 2020, Red River County went under a face covering mandate for 14 days because there were more than 30 active cases in the county. I received word from Red River County Judge, L.D. Williamson, that the 14-day mask mandate will end at the end of the day on Tuesday, November 10th because the number of active cases is below 30 in Red River County. Although the requirement to wear a mask is being lifted, I want to encourage all of our Rivercrest students and staff to continue to wear a mask while inside the building and when it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social distancing. Because our students and staff have been wearing masks, we have not had to send any student home for quarantine due to close contact with persons who tested positive. Please keep in mind that if the number of active cases in Red River County go above 30 at any time in the future, we will be expected to go back to a face covering mandate. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Sincerely, Stanley Jessee Superintendent Rivercrest ISD
Parent Portal has been updated, and the issue that was causing multiple alerts to be sent to parents has been fixed. If you have experienced problems with Parent Portal alerts, please check your settings in Parent Portal. Instructions are in the attached document: https://5il.co/mm04
October 27, 2020 Dear Rivercrest Community, Red River County has been exempt from the face covering mandate issued by Governor Abbott in Executive Order GA-29 because we had less than 20 active cases in the county. Since that executive order came out, the number to be exempt was increased to 30 active cases. I have been notified by Red River County Judge, L.D. Williamson, that at this time Red River County has 30 active cases and Red River County is no longer exempt. Starting on Wednesday, October 28, 2020, face covering will be required for all students in grades 4 – 12, staff, and visitors at Rivercrest ISD, while inside the building and when outdoors in public space, wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social distancing from another person not in the same household. This requirement will remain if affect until further notice. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Sincerely, Stanley Jessee Superintendent Rivercrest ISD
