• Student belongings pickup week of June 2-4.

    May 27, 2020

    Dear Rieke Rocket community,


    We hope everyone is healthy and enjoying this unbelievable weather! We are busy still as Team Rieke, teaching from a distance while making plans to close up the building and creating a transition plan for next year. I eagerly await news about next fall, as do all of you, but for now we wait.


    Next week June 2-4 we will be distributing student belongings to families here at Rieke. Teachers have put student belongings from the classroom, best we could, in labeled bags. In addition, Ms. Mitchell has student art portfolios. We will have a small team of staff here to hand off items to families during their grade level time windows. If you drive, please park in Wilson lot near the paving construction fences. The entrance from Vermont is closed. Then walk down the paved path west of the gym to the covered area, where we will be handing you student bags. People can then exit via the main stair case. If you have library books we will have a drop off cart, and we will have the lost and found items out if you want to look through. Please follow current social distancing guidelines. We have to be done daily by 2:00, as that is when the building is locked up.

    The schedule for student belonging pickups:

    Tuesday June 2

    9:00-11:00 Kindergarten

    11:45-1:45  Grade 1


    Wednesday June 3

    9:00-11:00 Grade 5

    11:45-1:45 Grade 2


    Thursday June 4

    9:00-11:00 Grade 3

    11:45-1:45  Grade 4

    If you have kids in multiple grades we will do our best to accommodate to save you from multiple trips. Stuff not picked up will be stored in classrooms until next year.


    Our newest video news show is still under construction. I will let you know when it is ready. In addition we are working on plans for the “new” last week of school, June 8-10. As those plans are ready to release, I will communicate those plans. Hang in there, be kind, care for each other with grace, and know we miss you all!
