The Principal’s Corner


Greetings Lemasters Community,

On behalf of the entire Lemasters Elementary School faculty and staff, I
would like to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year. My name is
Travis Brown Jr and I will again be serving as the principal of this
wonderful school. This will be my 4th year as the leader of Lemasters,
my 16th year in Riverview Gardens, and my 28th year in education. I look
forward to working with you and your scholars.
As a staff, we will be focusing on providing all students with a safe and
nurturing learning environment. In order to reach that goal, we will need
the support of families and the surrounding community. I know that
together, we will make this a great school year.
Student attendance is always a key component for student success at
school. The hours for elementary schools will remain the same for the
2022-2023 school year. Classes begin at 8:05 a.m., with the exception of
Late-Start Wednesdays, in which classes will begin at 9:05 a.m. We will
allow students to enter the building 15 minutes prior to classes beginning
at 7:50 a.m. Each student will have the opportunity to eat breakfast and
lunch at school, each day. Students that attended Lemasters last
school year should bring their RGSD issued devices.

As we maneuver through the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic, face masks are
optional. Uniforms are mandatory. (Tan-Blue-Black Khakis, Solid
