Weather Closure

Rivendell will be closed Tuesday, January 16 due to inclement weather. This includes all daycare, enrichment classes and meetings.

Board of Directors

The leadership of the Rivendell Board of Directors is extremely important. These individuals commit to keeping the school financially sound; advise the principal about good practices of financial management and distribution; determine the availability of dollars for raises and other compensations; oversee facility management; deal with legal issues and insurance; listen to the principal and all stakeholders for input about specific issues such as the lunch program, playground development and fundraising opportunities.  The members of the Board serve three-year terms. Perhaps the most significant aspect of Board service is the fact that these people volunteer their time and expertise in the service of the school.  This is a testimony to their commitment to the vision of Rivendell and contributes significantly to the culture of participation, ownership and responsibility.

Board elections are held each Fall. If you are interested in being a member of the Rivendell Board of Directors, please contact the Board president or anyone of our Board members at the link above. You can also fill out our Application for Board membership and bring it to the office.

If you see an area of improvement for our organization, we would like to invite you to email the board at
