"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - April 13, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I want to wish the RPS Sikh community a very happy Vaisakhi – the Sikh New Year – filled with love, unity, and equality! Turning to more somber news, please join me in extending our heartfelt condolences to the family of yet another RPS student – a young man from George Wythe High School – who was shot and killed over Spring Break. No words can fill the hole created by this devastating tragedy, but I hope that our collective prayers will provide some solace to this student's family and friends. Tonight I also want to acknowledge the anguish and pain caused once again by the killing of a Black man at the hands of police. Daunte Wright's killing – which occurred just miles away from the murder of George Floyd – was utterly senseless. Closer to home, our community has also been rattled by the video of Army Lt. Caron Nazario being pulled over and assaulted by Windsor police last December.

  • RPS Direct Update - April 12, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Welcome back! I hope you all had some time to rest and recharge in the beautiful sunshine last week. I managed to get away for a couple of days and I'm incredibly grateful for the time with my family. Let me start tonight by wishing a Ramadan Mubarak to all RPS students, families, and staff who observe Ramadan! We hope this month is filled with love, peace, and reflection. Today's updates: Two Logistical Notes – First, I want to highlight a new translation feature. If you look in the upper right corner of this email, you'll sink links to our five most commonly spoken languages (highlighted in the red oval in the screenshot below). Just click and you'll be taken to a Google translated version of the day's RPS Direct. Second, I've streamlined the links section at the bottom of the email. If there's anything missing that you feel is critical, please let me know!
