Rissler parents, the school year is just around the corner! If you intend to send lunch with your child, plan a School Lunch Date before school starts so you can teach them to open all their lunch items.

Mrs. Todd and Mrs. Otto will get them to their proper location periodically throughout the week. Teachers will start gathering student supplies and materials for distribution sometime around May 15th. More information to come!

New Rissler Office Hours due to statewide stay-at-home order: Monday’s from 9-11am. Any other questions may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rissler parents: If you would like a printed packet for your child to work on at home, they will be available outside the main doors at Rissler Elementary in the newspaper stands provided by Trenton Republican Times. Please remember, these packets are not required, but supplemental work to keep your child engaged in learning until we return to school. We ask that you pick up packets one at a time if multiple people are trying to access the stands, similar to the car pick-up line after school, to maintain social distancing requirements. Packets are for an entire week, and will be filled with the new week's work on Mondays. Stands will be replenished each day with copies of that week's packets, as well as sanitized. If you have any questions or need to arrange for pick-up of any other items, please email email@example.com. Thank you Republican time for your generous contribution! Bulldog proud❤️
