Principal's Message

Community matters

"Devote yourself to your community around you & devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning."
~Mitch Albom

In response to the SLCSD Board vote 1/9/20224...

Dear Riley Families,

I hope this message finds you well. Tonight, the School Board convened to vote on the proposed school closures, and it is with a heavy heart that I share the outcome with you. The board voted 4 to 3 in favor of closing all four proposed schools, including Riley Elementary, for the upcoming 2024-25 school year.

While we have been preparing for this possibility as a community, receiving the news is undoubtedly difficult as it transitions from a possibility to reality. Your resilience and support during this challenging time are truly appreciated.

In an effort to assist you in navigating the next steps and exploring your options, we will be hosting an information night at Riley Elementary this Friday evening at 5:30, coinciding with our Family Night. We have set up posters and computers to showcase your new boundary school for the next academic year, along with information about open enrollment options. This will be an opportunity for you to ask questions and gather essential details to ease this transition.

We want to express our gratitude for the beautiful community you have helped create here at Riley. Your collaboration, dedication, and involvement have been instrumental in making Riley Elementary a special place.

Please know that we are here to support you through this process, and we encourage you to attend the information night on Friday. Feel free to reach out if you have any immediate questions or concerns.

Thank you for your understanding, and let us come together as a community during this challenging time.

Warm regards,


Keslie Green, M.Ed


Riley Elementary 





I want to welcome EVERYONE to the 2023-2024 school year. I am excited for my second year as Riley's principal. It is my sincere pleasure to work with our dedicated staff and community to help provide an excellent educational experience for our students. We are committed to ensuring that your children receive the best support to learn and grow.

My vision for Riley is to provide students with an educational experience that inspires and motivates them to be lifelong learners and caring contributors to the world around them. Our goal is to provide a nurturing environment that meets the individual needs of each student, both academically and socially.

Families, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. Together, we can make a positive difference. A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children. Parents are invited to join our school community council. On our calendar, you’ll note the monthly meeting dates and times. Joining our School Community Council is a wonderful way to have your ideas heard, as well as support the vision of our school. We encourage parents to communicate with teachers and staff to foster a successful partnership.

We are excited for the opportunity to work with you and your child to provide a safe and productive learning environment. I encourage you to stop in or call me to share ideas, concerns, or questions. I wish your family, and especially your student, great success this school year.
