Principal's Message



    Dear Parents and Students:

     Welcome to Rio Seco School.  Our staff and PTSA have wonderful opportunities for you to participate in your child’s education.  You and your children are the cornerstone of Rio Seco’s tradition of excellence.

     We have two ways to enter and exit the school.  You may use the EAST (adjacent to the Sports Plex) or the traditional entrance at the front of the school.  This additional gate will be open 8:15-8:45 a.m. and at both dismissals until 3:00 p.m.  Please note that the drop-off and pick-up zone in front of the school continues to be next to the curb.  Traffic must keep moving.  If you are waiting for your child to dismiss, please find a spot to legally park.  If you need to wait for an intermediate or junior high student, please find a spot in the parking lot so parents can continue to pick up primary students in the drop-off/pick-up zone.  Do not leave your car unattended.  There are two designated 10-minute office pick-up parking spots.  These are reserved for parents picking up students who are ill.  Thank you for your help and patience.


    School begins promptly at 8:30 a.m.  With the additional access gate, all students are expected to be at school on time.  Please have your child prepare their lunch, school clothes and homework the night before so they are ready to go.  Students reporting to school after 8:45 a.m. must report to the office to be issued a tardy pass.  Also, make sure your child knows how they are getting home each day and which gate to exit.  To ensure your child is safe, younger siblings cannot wait on campus for their older sibling to be released.  There is no adult supervision on the playground and in front of the school after dismissal.


    You can help school attendance by:

      1. Encouraging and supporting regular attendance for your child.

      2. If your child is ill, call the school promptly at 619-258-2205 and keep them at home until they are well.

      3. If your child has a dentist or doctor’s appointment, please bring them to school before or after the appointment so your child can be counted in the attendance record and not miss an entire instructional day.

      4. Make sure your child is in the class line on time.

      5. Please carefully read the letter regarding Procedures for Student Check Out and End of School Day.

    We look forward to a fabulous school year.  For calendar and other information, please check our Rio Seco School website at www.santeesd.net/rs or ‘like’ us on Facebook!
