"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras
Dear #RPSStrong Family, Tonight's updates: Hispanic and Latin American Heritage Month – We're honored to celebrate Hispanic and Latin American Heritage Month, which runs from September 15 through October 15. Join our monthlong celebration via Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and be sure to use the hashtag #SomosRPS (#WeAreRPS)!
Dear #RPSStrong Family, Happy Friday! Tonight's updates: Mask Reminders – Parents and caregivers, please be sure students have their masks on when approaching and boarding the school bus. This helps ensure a safe and speedy boarding process. Please also make sure to send your students with a mask that fits their face. Adult size masks are not appropriate for small children, as they do not fit tightly (see CDC graphic below). If you need pediatric masks, your school can provide them. Thank you for helping keep RPS safe! COVID-19 Vaccination Mandate – RPS employees, please be reminded that you have until October 1 to submit full proof of vaccination or obtain a religious/medical exemption. Though I pray it doesn't come to this, please understand that any employee who does not meet the requirements of the mandate will face progressive discipline, including loss of employment.
