Mr. Vellozzi

Welcome students and families to Riverside High School and my class, Regents Earth Science

  • Hello Parents & Students

    The way I take student attendance is as follows:

    I check attendance once during the online/virtual learning. I check during the last 10 minutes of the class period. Students must be logged on for the entire 47 minutes in order to be marked present.  Please make sure you are familiar with your class times on TEAMS and are logged on. If in the event you lose the internet, you can easily get onto TEAMS class via your cell phone and using the TEAMS app. 

    I look forward to seeing everyone in class.

    Thank you, Mr. Vellozzi
