Riverview Junior High School 2016-2017 Retirees
school librarian/ media specialist
on their retirement!
We are so grateful for your years of service to our school. You will be missed!
13 Reasons Why Netflix Series: The Utah State Board of Education wants the following documents shared with all staff, posted on district and school websites and made available to parents:
- 13 Reasons Why Talking Points
- Recommendations for Reporting on Suicide
- Community Resources
- Tips for Talking about Suicide
The bottom line: If a student wants to watch the series, we tell them to watch it with a parent. We are also telling parents to watch it with their child due to the graphic content, language and storyline glamorizing suicide. If a student has already watched the series, we recommend the parent review the Talking Points with them.

Counseling Center Survey
Parents and Guardians of Riverview Junior High School Students:
To better serve our students and their families, every couple of years we ask for feedback from our parents, students, and staff regarding services in the Counseling Center. In order to streamline this process, the questions have been generated by the state. Please help us to better serve you and your student by going on-line and taking this survey. The more responses we receive, the better we can align services to the needs of our students.
There are two ways to access this survey. The first way is to copy and paste the following link into your web browser. http://www.ctesurveys.com/CTESurvey?PointerId=774&SchoolId=194

Thank you in advance for your help in taking this survey. There are 23 questions and should take approximately 10 minutes or less to complete.
