Frequently Asked Questions
When is the first day of school for the 2023-2024 school year?

August 31st is the first day of school. (GPI students start August 30th.)

Where can I find the school calendar?

You can find the Riverside School Board calendars under “School Information” under the Parents & Students tab on the yellow menu of the website.

Please note that schools have a school-based pedagogical day that does not appear on the calendar. Your child’s school will share its calendar.

Where can I find the School Supply Lists for my child?

You can click on the “School Supply Lists” square in the Quick Links section of the website (bottom) or under “Parents” under Parents & Students tab on the yellow menu of the website.

When will I receive information for the first day of school?

Our schools and centres are closed for a few weeks in the summertime. School and centre staff comes back around mid-August; however, teachers are back in schools only on August 24th. Therefore, emails to parents will be sent only a few days before school starts (August 31st). Depending on the schools, it could also be possible that an email is sent the day before the first day of classes.

Can I find out the name of the teacher that will teach my child before school starts?

Although some schools start working on class groups early, new registrations in the summertime could mean that groups and teachers are susceptible to change. Parents and students will find out on the first day of school.

Where can I find the information on my child’s bus route?

Transportation information for the 2023-2024 school year will be available on August 23, 2023, on mozaik portal. We therefore invite you to check the information from that date.
If you need help login in Mozaïk: Quick reference Guide.

A new online platform for information and transport requests will be launched at the end of August 2023. This will facilitate communication with the school transportation service, both to place a transportation request and for general questions. This will be available at the end of August 2023. More information will follow!

My child will eat at school at lunchtime. How much are the noon-hour supervision fees?

The school will let you know this information as it is a decision taken by the Governing Board.
