As the Rio Salado Surprise building remains closed until further notice, Rio Salado College and RISE, as a student organization of the college, have set a policy that NO classes are allowed to meet in person through the end of the year (2020). This includes the Non-Fiction Book Club and Hooked on Books Book Club. All classes must be scheduled and held via Zoom during this period of time.

Important Information re: Cancellations and Changes
When we have to cancel or change a class date, it is very difficult to get the message to everyone. If you are registered for a class that cancels, we email everyone in the class first and call anyone who doesn’t have an email listed. If the class cancels at the last minute, we call everyone who has registered for that class. Then we send an email blast about the cancelled class to those who have email. We will then note it on the home page of the RISE website, www.riselearning.org. For those who don’t have email or the internet, we print a sign and post it on the RISE bulletin board and on the windows by the classrooms. That is another reason it is so important to register for classes whenever possible.
Remember to check your name off the attendance sheet at the door or
add your name if you are not pre-registered. We just need a headcount!
ALWAYS remember to wear your badge when coming to classes or in the building.
Did you lose your badge? Your first badge replacement will be free of charge,
HOWEVER, the next replacements will cost you $5.00 (cash only) each.
Do you know someone you think would make a great presenter for RISE? Do you have an idea for a subject that we haven’t touched on yet? We would LOVE to hear from you!
