Rivercrest Parents and Community The extreme cold weather that we all just went through took it’s toll on some parts of our school and we need one more day without students to have everything fully operational for their return. So, students will be off on Monday and will return on a normal schedule on Tuesday, February 23rd. Rivercrest will be under a water boil notice when we return on Tuesday. We will have water which has been properly boiled and disposable cups available for all students when they return, and we are in the process of trying to secure bottled water. Parents, please send bottled water for your child to drink during the day if you are able to do so. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Stanley Jessee

These are “bad weather days” and not “remote learning days” Again, the temperatures and weather conditions can be dangerous, so please take care of yourselves and be careful.

Rivercrest ISD Parents and Community, In anticipation of the extreme weather conditions that are forecast for this weekend and next week, Rivercrest ISD is cancelling classes for Tuesday, February 16th and Wednesday, February 17th. I know the forecast for the rest of the week doesn’t look very promising, but we will make those decisions as we get closer to that time and have more current information. As a reminder, all students are out of school Monday due to a scheduled staff development day. These days that are taken off next week are not “remote learning” days, they are “snow days”😊. It isn’t very often that we get snow in our area so I hope our kids (and parents) are able to enjoy time playing and having fun! Keep in mind though, the temperatures and conditions this weekend and next week will no doubt be uncomfortable, and can also be dangerous, so please take care of yourselves and be careful. Stay warm and be safe, Stanley Jessee

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

The Football District Executive Committee met this week and voted to change the district start date. The district schedule start date has been moved up one week in order to allow for make-up games if a team were unable to play a district game due to COVID. The schedule could be amended again during the last 2 weeks of the season to allow more make up time. To move the date up one week, we have had to cancel our game with Chisum. The Chisum game was our Homecoming game. Homecoming will now be the week of September 25 vs. Wolfe City. This week’s game against Harleton is unchanged. Sept. 18. @ Como Pickton Sept. 25.
