  • Intercessors

    Our Intercessors meet regularly on Wednesdays, 9-10 am, to pray for our children and our community.  All parents are welcome to join. Please contact Janey Smith for details. 

  • Always Check in

    When you arrive for your parent duty, come to the main entrance on Kensington Street and check in at the Office.

  • Parent Text Alert

    We have a text alert system for parents. If there is an urgent need to reach parents in our community, we will send a text alert. Please be sure your cell phone information is up to date in our ParentsWeb so we can reach you. To update, log into ParentsWeb, go to Web Forms, then Update Contact Information. Click on each parent's Custodial Parent Form, and update your phone number. If you choose to OPT OUT of the text alert system, scroll to the Parent Alert:cell phone option and select "no".

    Note this is not for regular contact of individual parents, nor is it a way for you to text the school. If you need to reach the school or a teacher, be sure to use the Office phone number, 703-532-1200, or send an email. If school is closed due to inclement weather, please follow our usual procedure and check Arlington County Public Schools for closures or check our website.

  • Carpool Matters

    This year both pick-up and drop-off will be on Kentucky Street. Enter the line by turning north onto Kensington Street from 24th St. Be sure to avoid blocking driveways and intersections during afternoon pick-up. This is courteous to our neighbors and required by Arlington County Code. 

    Please review – and encourage whoever picks up your children to review – our Drop-off and Pick-up guidelines, linked on our Parents page of the website. If you are looking for a carpool, take a look at the map of our families linked on our Parents page. And always, drive carefully in the neighborhood. We want to be good neighbors.

  • Give to Rivendell

    Rivendell operates on a modest budget, and because of God’s abundant provision, the generosity of many, and the wise and careful stewardship of our Board, faculty, and staff, we have covered our costs every year.  Rivendell School is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Please consider giving to "The Next Chapter" Building Campaign or Annual Fund.  Online giving now available!
