Click for larger image

Considering the number of days we have missed school this year, to date, it is necessary to adjust our calendar and, in some cases, the length of our school day, in order to meet the 180 day instructional requirement set forth by the state of Indiana.   Because of the number of schools, statewide, that have had to cancel classes, the state has granted options for “make-up” time that have not been granted previously. The following plan reflects the make-up schedule for the LPCSC that will be submitted to the state for approval. In the event that additional snow days are necessary, a revised plan will be submitted.  

The plan addresses the need to make up 5 school days that, as of March 10, 2014, are necessary to make up. It is important to realize that some urgency exists to begin make-up hours, considering that it is possible that additional snow days may accumulate. In designing the plan, an effort was made to avoid students having to attend classes after our June 8, 2014 graduation date. Another interest was to schedule some of the extended days, so we could use the time for ISTEP review. In cases where the daily schedule is altered, it is done so by adding one hour to the existing day, considering that 6 extra hours equates to one make-up day.

Thank you for your support, commitment, and sacrifice that will benefit our students. Parents are encouraged to contact their child’s school Principal with any questions.

Beginning the week of January 21, 2013, Riley School will begin the “Adopt-a-Cop” program. This is a cooperative effort between the LaPorte Community School Corporation and local law enforcement agencies. 

We will be fortunate to have Officer Nate Thode as our “Adopt-a-Cop” officer at Riley. He will be in the building at various times. Officer Thode is also a Riley parent. He may walk the hallways, greet the students at the door or join students for breakfast and/or lunch. He may be able to make several visits a week. He has already visited the cafeteria during Kindergarten lunch.

We are looking forward to this collaboration. Please contact the office if you have any questions.

Starting August 20th, yogurt lunchables  will NO LONGER be offered as a school lunch choice in Elementary Schools. The new regulatory guidelines issued by the National School Lunch program have necessitated these changes.  PB & J and Salads will still be offered as an option to the regular "hot lunch" choice.

Riley Elementary School received an A grade for the 2011-2012 school year. This grade reflects Riley’s most recent academic performance. Indiana’s A through F grading system is designed to provide you a clear and concise assessment of how well your child’s school is doing. 

Letter grades are calculated based on data collected throughout each school year. Indiana recently shifted to a more comprehensive way of measuring and reporting school performance, as required by state law. These grades take into account a variety of factors, namely student performance and student growth.

You can view the A through F school accountability report card for Riley Elementary School at the Indiana Department of Education’s COMPASS website at http://compass.doe.in.gov This report details all of the components that factored into Riley’s letter grade this year.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact the Riley office at 219-362-3235. Thank you for your continued support of your child’s education.
