Print this articleNew Safety Protocol



Our security protocol was put in place several years ago and continues to be the policy of LaPorte Community Schools.  When visiting Riley, ALL visitors will need to check in at the main office. 

1. You must have a current background check on file in office to be able to visit the classroom or eat lunch with your child. 2. A Visitor’s Badge will be issued to you. This badge must be visible at ALL times. 3. Upon leaving the building, return your visitor badge to the office.

We understand this will be more time consuming, however, the safety and security of our students, staff and visitors is our top priority. Thank you for your support of Riley Elementary School and all the schools of the La Porte Community School Corporation.


Print this articleStudent Dismissal Changes

Beginning in the Spring of 2015 we will be dismissing all walkers and parent pick up students at 3:07 pm.  All children riding buses will be dismissed at 3:10 pm.  Traffic has always been heavy at dismissal from school. If you are picking up your child, please park in two straight lines in front of the building leaving an aisle in the center for through traffic. There is no parking in front of the timbers by the tree on the east end of the drive or at the front entrance. If you leave your car to get your child, the best pick-up method is to park your car in a space in the back lot and walk to the northeast entrance of the building to get your child. You can exit that parking lot onto Glenwood Street. If your child can ride the bus, please consider using it at dismissal to cut down on the traffic in front of Riley.  Beginning with the 2015-16 school year, if a student is not picked up by 3:20 he/she will be sent to Child Care and the parent will be responsible for paying the cost of childcare.  Thank you for your cooperation with this policy.
