Good evening Riverside Middle School Families. This is Sarah Willhite, your Assistant Principal, with an announcement regarding academic evaluations for student promotion and/or retention. It has come to the attention of district and school leadership that rumors regarding the promotion/passing of all students as a result of our remote learning process are currently being discussed within our school community. Today Mr. Howard and myself received notification from district leadership to correct this inaccurate assumption and clarify any other misunderstandings. It can not be assumed that students who were at risk academically at the time of our school closure will be promoted. It is important that students approach this learning process with the intent to do their very best. At present the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction has not approved nor recommended that grading be determined by a Pass/Fail, in the event that they do, schools will be required to provide evidence of student learning to support their decision. At risk students who are able to access materials (online and/or materials provided) and put forth very little effort to complete assignments, could detrimentally impact their likelihood for a passing grade. As part of your family we want your child to be successful during this difficult time. Students should do the very best they can under these circumstances. They should participate in the lessons and complete tasks assigned to them. Teachers will continue to provide feedback to students and this information will be used to determine how students will be evaluated at the end of this academic school year. Please help us by encouraging your child to maintain that growth mindset and continue to explore their learning during this remote learning process.
To all of our staff members, parents, and grandparents who served in our Armed Forces, we thank you for your service! Veterans’ Day 2019
