Welcome to River Glen
Head Lice (Read Me!)
Lice can crawl and cling firmly to hair; they do not jump or fly. They spread mainly through head-to-head contact. Sharing clothing, bed linens, combs, brushes, hair ties, and hats may also pass lice along from one kid to another. Kids are most prone to having lice because they tend to have close physical contact with each other and often share personal items. Pets cannot spread head lice from one kid to another.
It is important to follow lice treatment directions exactly because using them too much or too frequently may be harmful. Follow the directions on the product label to ensure that the treatment works properly.
Students may return to school when all nits have been removed from their hair. Lice eggs (nits) look sort of like dandruff, only brushing or shaking them off can’t remove them. The Health Aide/ Clerk will examine the student’s head before reentry into the classroom.

Principal Young's News
I am so excited to join the River Glen family this year. River Glen school is an innovative partnership among families, community, and school staff focused on raising global citizens and leaders of the 21st century. By implementing the Two-Way Bilingual Immersion model, we develop academic excellence, bilingualism, and biliteracy while developing a positive multicultural environment and social culture that promotes respect, inclusion, serving others, and accepting responsibility. Our school vision is aligned with our SJUSD mission to close the achievement gap and to provide all students with the finest 21st century skills.
River Glen offers an 80/20 model of Two Way Bilingual Immersion in Spanish. Students begin learning all subjects in Spanish and increase English instruction each year. We also offer Art Vista and music for K-8 students in addition to a variety of after school clubs like academic chess, science and art.
Our school has a very active parent organization, HABLA, which organizes fun events for students, fundraises for enrichment activities and provides important parent information.
Please check our calendar for upcoming meetings and events like School Site Council, SELAC, Caminata, Día De Los Muertos celebration, Cesar Chavez celebration and more.
There are so many ways you can be a part of the River Glen family and make our school great. I look forward to a wonderful year with students, staff and families.
