Students are required to sign and follow the Riverdale Student Driver Policy. A copy of this form must be on file in the office.
Automobiles must be driven on and off the school grounds in a slow, safe manner, are to be locked, are off limits during the school day, and must be parked in the student parking lot during school hours and all practices.
After school, automobiles will exit as directed by school personnel.
Students guilty of automobile rules violations or reckless driving will lose the privilege of driving to school.
Between the hours of 7:30 – 8:15 a.m. and 2:10 – 2:45 p.m. student traffic will enter the campus from the north and will exit to the west. This is very important for the safety of the younger children during these rush periods. Please drive slowly during these times and do not pass other vehicles. Parents delivering students will enter the west driveway near the Kindergarten building and exit the other west driveway. In the afternoon, parents will enter the same entrance as the morning and leave the same way.
Disruptive or destructive behavior that interferes with students’ safety will not be tolerated. Bus riders are responsible for their actions at the bus stop as well as on the bus. The bus driver has the right to assign seats and/or take reasonable action to ensur the safety of the students. Drivers are in complete charge of buses and will report students who refuse to cooperate in carrying out safety and conduct regulations. Students may lose bus riding privileges for the following offenses:
- Use or possession of tobacco.
- Abusive language or cursing.
- Vandalism or destruction of property.
- Fighting (Suspension is another disciplinary action.)
- Disruptive behavior.
See Red River Parish website for rules on the shuttle bus.

- The parent shall contact the school office prior to making the change.
*If the student does not have a bus contract filed in the office, the parent shall send $5.00 per ride with the note to the teacher.
