End of Year Locker Cleanout

posted May 20, 2020, 10:37 AM by Dawn Johnson

Hello Risley Families,

The district has given us guidelines to allow our students to return to the building to pick up personal belongings from their lockers, return chromebooks, athletic uniforms, and/or musical instruments. To keep everyone safe during this process, we will be following social distancing protocols including all staff and students wearing a mask/face covering and maintaining a distance of 6 feet apart.

We have developed a schedule which allows 8 students at a time to enter the building which will be monitored by staff. Students will have 20 minutes to gather items from their lockers and drop off chromebooks and uniforms. Students who are NOT remaining at Risley next year must also return their instruments. We will begin with 8th grade May 26th – 27th; 7th grade May 28th & June 1st; and 6th grade June 2nd – 3rd.

Please check the grade level list below for your student’s scheduled time. In addition, if you are driving to the building, please write your student’s first and last name; time of your scheduled appointment; and grade level on a piece of paper displayed through your vehicle window for staff to easily direct you to the correct staging area. If your student is arriving by foot, please remind them to follow the social distancing guidelines and only arrive at their scheduled time.

Thank you for your continued support!

Mrs. Johnson

This message is to inform you that there has been a sewer main break at Risley that has interrupted water service and operations of the school. Because of this, it is necessary that students be released early from school today, Thursday, December 19. All parents and guardians are asked to pick up their children from school as soon as possible. Bus transportation services will operate at regular dismissal time.

All after school activities and events are also cancelled.

Again, parents of Risley students are asked to pick up their children as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding and support of the measures being taken in this matter.

Preliminary School Performance Framework Results

posted Aug 29, 2019, 10:05 PM by Dawn Johnson   [ updated Aug 29, 2019, 10:07 PM ]

Risley's School Performance Framework (SPF) results were revealed this past Tuesday with a celebration of noisemakers and cheers from the staff as Risley pulled up one category into Priority Improvement out of Turnaround!  The move is a result of increased growth rates in both Math and ELA, which also included slight increases in achievement.  The school still has much work to do this year, but the staff was elated to receive such encouraging results!  We look forward to continuing our efforts again this year!

Parents, Guardians and Risley Students, 
Please join me at the District Administration building's Arapaho room this coming Monday, March 11th, at 5:30 pm.  The External Management Organization (EMO) stakeholder's committee has recommended two finalists to help lead Risley International out of Turnaround status, and WE NEED YOUR VOICE!  We know how much you care about the success of students who attend Risley, and this meeting is your chance to hear the proposals from each organization, ask questions, and provide your feedback before a final decision is made.  Let's go Risley Bears! 

Hope to see you there!
