It has come to our attention that on Tuesday, March 10, a student from Avon High School visited Riverton Parke at the end of the day during athletic practices. The Avon student was in the area visiting a local family, and the local family brought the student to RP during their visit to campus. Though Avon High School is currently on an e-learning schedule due to illness within the corporation, there is no evidence that indicates the student who visited us is ill or has any connection to the ill students in the Avon area.
We have addressed this matter directly with the family who brought the student to the school. We have also shared the information regarding this situation with the Parke County Health Department.
We recognize our responsibility to keep our students and staff safe and healthy. We will continue to monitor the situation and communicate with the public if there are any issues that need to be addressed. Thank you for your understanding.
