To Our Crestwood Community,

Thank you for your partnership in helping our students do their remote learning projects this spring. You’ve been supportive, motivational, and gracious in helping us accomplish the shared goals of academic growth and social-emotional support for all. 

Starting June 4th, it’s time for teachers to start planning ahead for transitions to close out this school year and set up for the next. Teacher contact with parents and students will become more limited. Teacher focus will shift to other professional activities  like student records, documentation, and other end-of-the-year responsibilities.

Administrators continue to work on routine tasks like summer school, data analysis, scheduling fall classes, staffing needs, and closing out construction and financial matters. We’re also working with many local and state agencies to prepare our facilities, making multiple plans for the pandemic’s recovery phase. It’s a challenge that we’re ready to meet.

Please continue to monitor your email, district and school websites, as well as school social media accounts. 

We are one team with one voice, advocating collectively for all our kids.

All the best to you and your family,

Dennis Faletti
Riverside Middle School
