Lunches must be pre-ordered at www.MySchoolAccount.com. Orders must be placed before midnight Thursday for the following week. MySchoolAccount offers parents the ability to monitor their child's meal purchases, track what children have been eating for the past 30 days, make deposits directly into student meal accounts, transfer funds between students, and have an email reminder sent when an account balance gets low. Deposits and pre-orders can be made through ACH or Credit Card payments. Each child's account will be updated nightly so that pre-orders and account balance information will be current the following day. Please refer to the Lunch Menu page under Resources for more information.

Reminder to Turn in Forms and Pay School Fees
If you have not done so already, please complete and return the forms included in the student's Orientation Day packet of materials. The information on these forms will enable us to contact you in case of inclement weather or in the event your child is sick or injured. In addition, please remember that school fees for Physical Education for all elementary and middle school students are due on August 17. Only those students enrolled in a high school health or PE course are required to pay the PE fee. In addition, students in 8th grade and high school must pay a $60 laptop fee. This fee is payable in three installments of $20 each. The first installment payment is due on August 17. Please remember that it is a school policy that students who owe school fees will not be allowed to participate in school sports teams, clubs, or attend school field trips or other school events. Refer to the "Penalty for Non-Payment of Fees" in the Student/Parent Handbook and on the school's website for full details.

Yard SaleThe National Elementary Honor Society will host the 2nd annual Rent-A-Space Yard Sale on Saturday, September 29, 2018 from 8am-12:00pm at River Mill Academy. All proceeds will allow NEHS to do community service projects throughout the school year.

How This Works: Each space will consist of two parking spaces for $20. Spaces will be sold on a first come first serve basis. Each participant will keep their own earnings from their sale.

There will be food/snacks available for sale as well as fresh lemonade and soft drinks. It’s a great way to get rid of some of those things that you never use or wear!

To rent a space print the reservation form, attach cash/check made payable to RMA and send back to school. We will contact you with space assignments once money is received. For more information contact Jane Johnson at jjohnson@rivermill-academy.org, Paula Horning at phorning@rivermill-academy.org,  or Jenny Rudd at jrudd@rivermill-academy.org for more information.
