About Us



Welcome to L. Mendel Rivers Elementary School website! The faculty and staff at Rivers Elementary are dedicated to providing our students with a safe, secure, and caring environment where the highest quality education can be achieved.
As we prepare for the upcoming school year, our community health issues with Covid-19 continues to change. Our district and school is dedicated to creating plans that will adjust to the changes. Rivers is putting in precautions that will aid in keeping our students, staff and community safe for the 2020-2021 school year.  We understand that change is difficult and appreciate your understanding and cooperation during these uncertain times. 

At Rivers Elementary, we encourage cooperation among school, home, and community because we believe the cooperative effort is necessary to the success of the whole individual-intellectually, emotionally, and physically. Because we are committed to the learning process of each child and believe all children can learn, we challenge each to achieve a level of success in accordance with his or her abilities and potential. By equipping students with knowledge and skills we strive to prepare all students to become lifelong learners and productive citizens in an ever-changing world. As we work together, open communication is encouraged. We welcome your calls, questions, and involvement in the education and of your child at Rivers. We are looking forward to the 2020-2021 school year.
