EXCELLENCE WITHIN R.E.A.C.H.
Riverview Gardens School District family,
This morning the nation mourns the loss of men, women and children in Moore, Oklahoma. The full extent of the damage caused by yesterday’s storm may not be known for weeks but the impact of destruction can be felt across the country today.
It is an educator’s worse nightmare to learn that among several dozen victims, children were caught in the path of the tornado while at school. Our hearts and prayers go out to those families. Although weather conditions such as those seen in Oklahoma are rare in our area, be assured that Riverview Gardens School District students and staff annually conduct and participate in natural disaster drills. In addition, District transportation services are halted when severe storm warnings are in effect.
As continued coverage of the disaster becomes more detailed and if local forecasts continue to indicate possible heavy rain, some children may become sensitive to storms or have concern with safety during inclement weather conditions. School counselors are available to speak with students. In addition, Behavior Mental Health services are available at (314) 469-6644.
The Riverview Gardens School District salutes those who gave their lives to protect others and to those who responded first to the victims of the tornado. Our deepest condolences are extended to those who have lost a loved one during this tragedy and our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the Oklahoma community.
