Marilyn Bates » Mrs.Bates


Hello, Parents and Students, and welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!

My name is Mrs. Bates, and I am very excited to start the new school year with you! We will all be learning so much and having fun too, whether we are learning at home or in the classroom. This year is the start of my 22nd year at Rio Vista. I live in Yorba Linda with my husband and two daughters.

I want to take this time to give you some important information for the start of school on Tuesday. First, a caution: since we are all online, please expect our technology to fail us at times.  It has happened in the past and will continue to happen. Stay calm. If Zoom isn’t working on the first day, send me an email message and have your child work on iReady lessons until they can join the class on Zoom. Your child should also click on the Google Classroom tile on their CLEVER dashboard before Tuesday and find “Mrs. Bates - 1st Grade”. They have already been added to our class.

When getting onto Zoom, students must first log in to CLEVER using the QR code or username/password provided in their materials (first page of the RED “Toolbox” folder) you will pick up at Rio Vista on Monday. They then click on the Zoom tile. This ensures that they are using their PYLUSD student accounts. Try this before our first day of school.
