Dear Community Members,

In an effort to proactively slow the spread of Covid-19, Riverside Adult Ed will be making changes to our calendar. These changes are aligned with our collaborating RSUs’ careful decisions about how to best support our community health:

*All enrichment classes will be postponed. We look forward to rescheduling classes as soon as is safely possible.

*If you wish to cancel your registration for a class not yet begun, we can offer you a credit towards a future class (to be used by Dec 31, 2020) or reimburse your registration fee minus the processing fees.

*Classes that have already begun will be rescheduled.

*Academic services will continue online.  Our Academic teachers are prepared to keep ESL, math, reading, high school diploma, academics advising, and college readiness services running virtually.

*The CDC has offered some supportive ideas regarding managing stress and anxiety during this unusual time. Information can be found at

Please reach out with questions about your classes or adult education services. You can reach us at, or at 866-4119.
