Preschool for 5-year-olds
Due to the effects of the pandemic on the 2020-2021 school year, the Virginia Department of Education will allow children turning 5 years-old on or before September 30, 2021 to register in Preschool for the 2021-2022 school year instead of going to Kindergarten. The purposes of this year’s exception are for children currently attending virtual preschool to stay one more year for an in-person preschool experience, and for children that did not attend preschool this year, to have the opportunity to prepare for Kindergarten.
For more information, please send an email to email@example.com.
Preschool Enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year is now open.
RPS Preschool offers full-day, high-quality early childhood education to eligible 3 and 4 year old children living in the City of Richmond.
Please upload pictures of child’s original birth certificate, proof of income and two proofs of address to your application. An up to date immunization record and physical (performed within the 12 months prior to the date of entrance) will be required for students to start school.
Families of children with special needs are encouraged to apply.
If you need assistance with preschool enrollment, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For assistance in English call (804) 254-6181.
Para asistencia en Español llama al (804) 254-6180.

Dear #RPSStrong Family, My apologies for coming to you later than usual tonight – we just wrapped up John Marshall's graduation ceremony at The Diamond! That was our third one of the day: this morning was Huguenot HS and this afternoon was Open HS. All three were all absolutely fantastic (see below for some pix of our valedictorians). Big shout out to Principal Gilstrap, Principal Carleton, Principal Murray, and our Chief Schools Officer, Harry Hughes, for planning and executing beautiful ceremonies! And, of course, congratulations to our amazing, pandemic-defying graduates.
