Riverdale to Open in August

On Thursday afternoon, the school posted “Riverdale Academy plans to begin school, as planned, on August 7, 2020. We intend to follow our normal daily schedule.

“We are confident that we will be able to maintain a safe, healthy environment for the Riverdale family as we take precautions and implement procedures as prescribed in the document released by the Louisiana Department of Education on June 25, 2020.

“If you are interested in enrolling your child, please contact the school at (318) 932-5876. You may also email drester@riverdaleacademy.org or sgreer@riverdaleacademy.org.

The public school system has not announced plans for opening this fall.  At the last board meeting three scenarios were presented, depending upon the phase of reopening the state would be in later this summer.  Summer school was scheduled to begin on July 6th if the state had moved to Phase Three, which did not happen.

The School Board will meet Monday at 2:00 pm.  Further plans for school opening will probably be discussed at that meeting.
