Dear Riverton Families,
Riverton School is preparing for our preschool program for the 2023-2024 school year.
The program meets the needs of our children with special needs, in addition to providing a
supportive environment where students with and without disabilities can learn together.
This developmentally appropriate, play-based program will address reading and
mathematics readiness skills, language development, fine and gross motor skills and social
skills. The curriculum will be aligned with state standards in order to prepare students for
the district’s kindergarten program.
We are currently accepting applications for a limited number of openings. The program
will be from 8:10-11:00 A.M., Monday through Friday. Students will be selected by lottery
on Tuesday, February 28, 2023 at the Board of Education meeting in the Riverton School
Gym. The cost for this program will be $3,200, payable in two increments by September 1,
2023 and December 15, 2023. You will be notified by mail of your child’s status following
the lottery. Approximately eight to ten openings are anticipated to be available through
the lottery. Students who are not selected in the lottery will be placed on a waiting list.
In order to qualify for the program, your child must meet the following criteria:
● Riverton resident, age 4 by October 1, 2023
● Fully toilet trained
● Up to date immunizations
Documentation of each must be submitted with your child’s application.
Parents are responsible for transportation and ensuring regular attendance.

Again, students not selected will be placed on a waiting list.
