Schedule your child's parent conference!

Parent conferences are coming February 8 and 9!

To give greater flexibility in scheduling parent/teacher conferences, Riley has now made conference schedules available via the internet. Starting January 9, parents will have the opportunity to access their teachers’ calendars and schedule a convenient conference time.  If you have not made an appointment by the day before conferences begin (February 7), teachers will pick a time for you and notify you in a take-home note.  

The school welcomes you to come in and use one of our computers if you do not have internet access at home or work.  Alternatively, you may access the internet via the computers at your local library.

The password associated with logging on was emailed to parents January 6.  It also was sent in a text and will be sent out in several home notes.  If you struggle to access the scheduling site, please call the front office at 801-974-8310. 

Please be sure to take advantage of this opportunity to efficiently schedule your appointments.  Remember, the appointments are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Word of the month--Dedication!

Dedication means to be devoted or committed to something.

Ways to show dedication:

  • In order to excel, you must be completely dedicated and be prepared to work hard.  Without 100% dedication, you will not achieve your goals.
  • Don’t wait for report cards to make a change.  Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it.  Start it fresh by working hard in school and completing your work.  You’ll be pleased with how much you can learn and how high your grades can go.
  • Dedication means trying, even when something is difficult.
  • Think about what you want to be when you grow up.  What do you want to achieve?  What will it take to get there?  With dedication, you can reach your goal.
  • Not sure how to reach your goal?  Ask your teacher for help.  They can help you get there, step by step.
  • If you believe in yourself, have dedication, and never quit, you’ll be a winner.  The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
  • What will you dedicate yourself to for the rest of this school year?  Make a goal and never give up.

Open Enrollment!

For the coming school year, students interested in enrolling in a Salt Lake City school, who live outside the district or school boundaries, may submit an Open Enrollment Application during the Early Enrollment period from December 1, 2016 through February 17, 2017. Applications are taken in the Student Services Department of the Salt Lake City School District Administration Building.

Students may apply for enrollment in schools designated as “Open” to transfer. Selected schools, programs and grades may be at capacity for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year and not available as a choice for out-of-resident students.  A list of available schools, grades, and programs or other information pertaining to the open enrollment policy may be obtained after November 30, 2016 from the Student Services office at the above address or by calling (801)578-8206 or (801)578-8475.

Students currently enrolled in (6th) grade must apply for transfer to the middle school of their choice and eighth (8th) grade students must make application for the high school of their choice during the Early Open Enrollment period.

A $5.00 processing fee will be charged at the time of application and may be waived for qualified applicants.

Parents and students will be notified in writing by March 31, 2017 of acceptance or rejection of the request for an Open Enrollment transfer to that school.
