• River Valley Middle School and High School Lock Down Drill

    River Valley, in coordination with local law enforcement agencies, conducted a school-wide search of the River Valley Middle and High Schools. This was a county-wide initiative that River Valley chose to participate in. Law enforcement officers brought in drug sniffing dogs who did a sweep of the buildings and parking lots. During the sweep, students were held in their classrooms until the dogs had cleared the building.

    School Administration worked alongside law enforcement to uphold the safety and well-being of our students. We continue to provide our students with a safe educational environment and continue to hold this as our utmost importance.

    If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact your building administrator.

    Have a safe and great day!
    River Valley Administration

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.


Dear River Valley Family and Friends:

As I write this memo, the weather once again is becoming hazardous at times.  When I make a decision to delay or close school, I always follow a process in which student and staff safety comes first.  When the weather is questionable, I am on the roads early and I stay in constant contact with our transportation coordinator, our building and grounds supervisor, and the superintendents from nearby school districts.  My decisions are only made after careful consideration for everyone's safety.  Thank you for being flexible as we at River Valley work together to keep everyone safe.

I am proud of the successes we have achieved together as a district.  Our focus on student success continues to yield positive results.  As our current test scores are tabulated the parent reports should be sent to your homes in the next few weeks.  Our elementary and middle school student achievement scores have steadily improved.  Our high school staff is working hard to better understand the new state assessments.  I am grateful to our wonderful staff, great students, parents, and grandparents, all of whom are committed to our educational programs and higher achievement.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's education, talk to you child's teacher or building principal.  Also, please do not hesitate to contact me if necessary.  I am looking forward to working together to create a great future for our kids.


James P. Peterson - Superintendent
