District News & Info

  • River Valley School to Participate in MOCK THREAT TRAINING

    River Valley Community,

    This message is to inform you that our entire district will be conducting a “Mock” threat scenario on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at River Valley High School. This scenario will simulate an active shooter with law enforcement and fire responding to the High School.  This TRAINING will affect the entire district with the Middle and Elementary Schools simulating “lock” down, as we would do for an actual occurrence at any of our buildings.

    The High School will be the focal point for this TRAINING of the students, staff and local emergency agencies within the county. All media outlets have been contacted along with surrounding county agencies and school districts to inform them that this is TRAINING.  We will have signs posted on the roadways leading up to and adjacent to the High School/Middle School buildings indicating that this is TRAINING.  For parents; you will still have access to the Middle School, Heritage and Liberty but there is no access to the High School from 7:50 am-12:00 pm.

    We are doing this to better educate everyone on how to react to these types of emergency situations should they ever occur. If you would have any questions in reference to this TRAINING, please contact Steve Ross at sross@rvk12.org or by telephone at (740)725-5808.

    Again, please note, THIS IS TRAINING. Thank you.

    Per the Ohio Department of Health (ODH), pursuant to Section 3701.13 of the Ohio Revised Code, students are required to have immunizations or a medical waiver in place to attend school. Beginning with the start of the 2016-2017 school year, all pupils entering the 7th and 12th grade are required to be vaccinated against meningococcal disease.  New state mandate for 2016 states that one dose is required prior to entry into the 7th grade, in addition to a Tdap (Diptheria, Tetanus and Pertussis) booster and a second dose is required prior to entry into the 12th grade.  If you received your first dose after your 16th birthday, then a second dose is not required. Per state guidelines, documentation of the required immunizations and/or medical waiver MUST BE PROVIDED TO THE SCHOOL within 14 days of the start of the 2016-2017 school year or risk exclusion.  Please contact your primary care provider or local health department to schedule an appointment. A copy of your current immunization record may be emailed, dropped off, faxed or mailed to RVMS or RVHS prior to the start of the 2016-2017 school year.
