George Wythe High School

Dedicated To Excellence

  • Principal Dear George Wythe High School Families,

    I hope your summer has been enjoyable despite these very challenging and uncertain times we’re currently living through. As we plan for the first virtual opening in the history of Richmond Public Schools in just a few weeks, I want to make you aware of some changes that we’ve made that will help your child be successful in a virtual high school environment. I also want to encourage you to reach out to the school team if you have questions or need additional information.

    First, every RPS student will have a district issued Chromebook in order to access the virtual platform. Schools will call families who had not yet picked up a Chromebook and/or hotspot to be sure your child has what s/he needs. You may also reach out to the school directly to
    share remaining needs including if you’re having issues with a Chromebook or need technology assistance. Secondly, all RPS high schools will implement a modified schedule for the 2020-21 school year where students will take four classes for the first semester of the year and then take four different classes for the second semester. This new schedule has benefits for students and teachers and works especially well in a virtual setting.

    Additional information will be shared during the grade-level virtual Back-to-School Night meetings we will host for students and parents later this month. We’ll send information with the date/time of the meetings shortly.

    Respectfully yours,

    Dr. Joseph Pisani

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - September 22, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I am devastated to share that we lost two RPS students last night – one from Franklin Military Academy and one from Richmond Alternative School – in two separate tragedies. The students had connections to a number of other schools, including Henderson Middle School, Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School, Chimborazo Elementary School, and Huguenot High School. All of these communities are grieving this evening; please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. On behalf of RPS, I want to extend my deepest condolences to both students' families. As a parent, I can't bear to imagine the pain they are experiencing right now. I pray that the RPS family will do whatever is necessary to provide them with a glimmer of light amidst the darkness they now face. With great appreciation, Jason

  • RPS Direct Update - September 21, 2020 (PM)

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Quick reminder that we have a School Board meeting this evening at 6 pm, which you can watch on our Facebook page. We'll be discussing a number of topics, including draft proposals for adjusted schedules (see pages 9-16 here). We crafted these proposals based on all the feedback we received over the past week or so. I personally read hundreds of your emails (thank you for sending them!) and tried to guide our team by synthesizing everything I heard. Please note that they are, by no means, final. I humbly ask for your grace as we continue to refine these drafts with additional feedback. (Dr. Epp, our Chief Academic Officer, will share more tonight about the ways we're hoping to get additional input.) Click above to read more!
