    Mrs. Zeeb, Congressman Takano, Ms. Sugden and Mrs. Daltrey, Principal
    Students from Ms. Sugden's, Mrs. Zeeb's  and Mrs. Connor's class made Valentines for our veterans.  Congressman Mark Takano came to school to personally receive the Valentines from our students.  While here, Mr. Takano thanked students who were part of the project and told them how much our veterans appreciate receiving their cards.  In addition, Mr. Takano took time to answer students' questions about his job:
    Q:  How long does it take to fly to Washington?
    A:  "About 5 hours" (He then showed the route on a classroom map -- to which the student replied, "That's a tiny plane.")
    Q:  What is your job?
    A:  "My job is to make laws.  I'm working on one this week about kids.  One of the reasons I became a Congressman was to help kids."
    Q:  Have you met the president?
    A:  "Yes."  He later added, "I've been invited to parties at the White House." (Kids then responded: "Oooo!")
    Before Mr. Takano left, he complimented the children on their listening skills, adding, "You have been better behaved than members of Congress!"

  • Welcome Back!
    We hope your summer was restful and everyone is excited to return to school.  School starts on August 25 from 7:40 a.m. - 2:05 p.m., except on Wednesdays all students are released at 12:50 p.m. for teacher collaboration time. On the first day of school your child will bring home a folder with a lot of important information and forms that should be filled out and returned to school the next day.  Your support with this is very much appreciated.
    Class lists are posted on August 22.  Our staff is working very hard to ensure that every student has a successful year.
    Back-to-School Night is Thursday, August 28.  A flyer will come home outlining the night's events.  Our PTO and Outdoor Ed. Booster Club will be present to answer questions you may have regarding how you can get involved or questions about their organization. 
    Please take the opportunity this school to volunteer at least one hour of time to your child's school.  If every parent volunteered one hour, that would be about 600+ hours helping make our school an even better experience for your/our students.  Of course, parents are always welcome to volunteer as much as they would like.  In September, we will host a Volunteer Orientation and all parents are welcome to attend.  At the orientation, volunteers are shown how to use the school office equipment, should the need arise.  Volunteers working more than 4 hours per week are required to have a TB test and fingerprinting by the Department of Justice.

  • District of Choice Applications to be Accepted Beginning Nov. 1

    RUSD is a District of Choice and welcomes families living outside RUSD boundaries to submit District of Choice transfer requests for the 2014-2015 school year between Nov. 1, 2013 and Jan 1, 2014.

    Click HERE to download an application in English.  Para Espanol, oprima AQUI.

    As a designated District of Choice, any K-12 student may apply to attend Riverside schools, even if RUSD is not their home district. Per state law, a student's home district may not prevent District of Choice transfers into the Riverside Unified School District. The District of Choice option is available to any student who does not live within RUSD boundaries but is interested in attending RUSD schools for the 2014-2015 school year. Admission to the district through a District of Choice transfer does not guarantee students a place at their school of choice. However, every effort will be made to accommodate specific school requests.

    Questions may be directed to the RUSD Pupil Services Department at 951- 352-1200.
