You can return in the designated box as well. All course selection forms should be completed no later than Friday, May 29, 2020.

"RPS Direct" Emails from Supt. Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - May 28, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Before diving into today's updates, I want to acknowledge the additional pain that is coursing through our community right now as a result of George Floyd's harrowing death at the hands of a white Minneapolis police officer. The similarity to the Eric Garner case, down to both men's cries – "I can't breath" – is chilling, to say the very least. Nearly 35% of RPS students are African-American young men. The America that they will experience over the course of their lives is fraught with racist prejudices – held consciously or not – that dehumanize them and make deaths like Mr. Floyd's not just possible, but common. We must change that. Our responsibility as educators is so much more than just teaching reading and math. It's about preparing our young people with the knowledge, skills, and social capital they'll need to construct a better, more just world – and doing whatever we can as adults to pave the way for them. Towards that end, I'd like to make a request of my fellow white members of the RPS community: If you haven't already done so, please discuss Mr. Floyd's death – and the long history of racialized violence that precedes it – with your children. Yes, it may be difficult. But families of color don't have much choice when it comes to "the talk" – it's literally a matter of life and death for them. For the entire RPS Family, here's a set of resources for talking with young people about race, racism, and racialized violence from the Center for Racial Justice in Education. Finally, to everyone who is processing this tragedy with great pain, please know that your RPS family stands with you – and always will. With great appreciation, Jason

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, We recently learned that an RPS employee who was present at multiple events at Mary Munford Elementary School over the last two weeks has tested positive for COVID-19. The employee was asymptomatic at the time and is currently in isolation at home, per CDC guidelines. For health privacy reasons, we cannot release the name of the staff member, but please keep this individual and their family in your thoughts and prayers.

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, As Memorial Day approaches, let's take a moment to remember those who gave their lives to defend our country – over 2.8 million since our founding. We are eternally in their debt. Let us honor their memory by striving every day to create a more perfect union, one that ensures true freedom – political, economic, and social – for all.

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, On behalf of RPS, I want to thank the School Board for adopting the budget last night, with a special note of gratitude to our Board Leadership, Chair Linda Owen and Vice-Chair Cheryl Burke. This process is never easy, as there's always less money than our students and teachers deserve. And this year was particularly challenging, as the revenue picture changed suddenly due to the coronavirus. Though RPS isn't receiving as much of an increase as we had originally hoped for, we're still up – in no small part due to the leadership of Governor Northam and Mayor Stoney. Very few school districts around the country are in such a position. We're extremely blessed to able to provide a raise, hire more staff, and launch new programming next year. Specifically, as of last night, the following enhancements are official!
