• ENROLLMENT SCENARIOS FOR ATTENDING RIVERVIEW PK-8 SCHOOL

     

    WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

     

    If Your child IS currently enrolled in a Thompson School District school:

    Your student is currently enrolled in a TSD school and you live in Riverview’s attendance area (click here to verify-using your home address: School Locator).  Your child’s enrollment will automatically “roll” to Riverview (current grades K-7).  You will need to complete the  “Annual Student Registration (ASR)” using your parent portal account at:  https://thompsonco.infinitecampus.org/campus/portal/parents/thompson.jsp.  This is an annual update for you to verify your child’s emergency contacts and update annual permissions. This “tool” will be available in your parent portal account beginning in a week or two.  Reminders will be sent out by your child’s current school of enrollment as well as by Riverview in the future.

    If you do not currently live in Riverview’s attendance area and want your child to attend Riverview:  You will also need to complete the “OPEN ENROLLMENT” application to submit your request to attend Riverview.  The first window for open enrollment applications begins in November 2020 and closes the first week of January 2021.  Decisions on these first round requests will be made and letters will be sent out from the district on Friday, March 12, 2021 notifying families of their acceptance or denial.  Here is the link to apply:  https://www.thompsonschools.org/Page/22930  After January 8, 2021, you would need to apply for the second round of Open Enrollment, the window for this opens Friday, April 2, 2021.  Decisions on these open enrollment requests will not be made until August 2021.

     

    WHAT IS OPEN ENROLLMENT?.......Open Enrollment is applying to attend a school that you do not live within their boundaries area.  Beginning in the 21-22 school year, Riverview will open and boundaries will change for some students currently attending Winona Elementary, High Plains and Conrad Ball Middle School.  Be sure to check the school locator link mentioned above if you are not sure which school is your neighborhood school.  Open enrollment is never guaranteed.  Many factors contribute to whether or not a school can accept an open enrollment request.

    PLEASE NOTE:  If your child is currently enrolled at one of the district charter schools (LCS or NVCS) and you wish to enroll at Riverview (and live in our attendance area), please complete this form: Enrolling at Riverview from LCS or NVCS Form in addition to completing the “annual family update”.  Your child's enrollment will NOT automatically “roll” to Riverview because you previously applied to attend one of these schools (not your neighborhood/home address school).   This will give Riverview permission to have the enrollment transferred to us for the 2021-2022 School Year.
