  • As of July 1, 2019, Virginia law requires that all 7th grade students receive a TDAP booster vaccination prior to 7th grade entry (see fact sheets attached). Sixth grade girls are required to receive the HPV vaccine prior to entering sixth grade. However, parents and guardians have the right to decide if they want their children to receive the HPV vaccine or not.  Immunizations are currently down across the country as a result of the pandemic. Even though students will be learning virtually during the fall semester; enrollment and vaccination requirements still remain in place. In an effort to support our families, the Richmond City Health District (RCHD) along with local Health Systems have provided a list of resources for parents to connect our students to area providers via their "Don't Wait, Vaccinate Campaign". Please see the attached flyers. On Thursday, August 13, 2020 and Thursday, August 20, 2020; the RCHD will offer TDAP and HPV clinics for 7th grade students. HPV is a 2-series vaccination; and further clinics will be planned for students to receive their second vaccination.  HPV is most effective for both boys and girls, when it is administered between the ages of 11-12 years of age (see HPV info flyer attached). The flyers for these upcoming clinics will be provided as soon as they are available.

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - August 13, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, If you didn't get a chance to catch RPS Live! last night, I encourage you to carve out some time this weekend to do so. I was joined by four wonderful guests: Harry Hughes, our Chief Schools Officer; Cherita Sears, Principal of Thomas Jefferson HS; Latonya Waller, Principal of Boushall MS; and James Gordon, Principal of Oak Grove-Bellemeade ES. We discussed how RPS will be focusing on our students' social and emotional well-being during our virtual semester. I'm so grateful to these leaders – and the many others they represent – for truly demonstrating what it means to #LeadWithLove. With great appreciation, Jason Click above to continue reading!

  • RPS Direct Update - August 12, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Don't forget to tune into RPS Live! tonight at 7 pm on our Facebook page. I’ll be joined by Harry Hughes (Chief Schools Officer), Cherita Sears (Principal of Thomas Jefferson HS), Latonya Waller (Principal of Boushall MS) and James Gordon (Principal of Oak Grove-Bellemeade ES) as we continue our #ReopenWithLove discussion and answer your questions. We hope you can join! Switching gears, I know I mentioned our three new schools on Monday, but I have to circle back, as I have more pictures to share! A HUGE thank you to the School Board for prioritizing these new schools in our facilities plan, to Mayor Stoney and the City Council for introducing and enacting the Meals Tax to fund the construction, and to the public for eating out. We couldn't be more grateful! With great appreciation, Jason Click above to continue reading!
