  • Hello everyone! 

    I wanted to make you aware of the Redd ES Library Homepage. When you are there, I have a page called Useful Links which has many sites and links that can help your student(s) stay involved. 

    If you click here you will be directed to the Library page. Once there, click on the the Useful LInks tab. This is located on the left hand side of the page. I just added Junior library Guild's free eBook access and the Kennedy Center's site where students (and everyone else) can watch my favorite author, Mo Willems! I will add more links as I find them.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or comments. My email address is Jbreiden@rvaschools.netCheck it out!

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - August 11, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, We are thrilled to virtually welcome back our students on September 8 for the start of the 2020-21 school year! While this fall may look and feel a little different, one thing will be the same: our commitment to teaching, leading, and serving with love. Last week, we shared #ReopenWithLove, our reopening plan for the fall. I encourage you to read it and follow up with any questions you may have. You can always contact me at jkamras@rvaschools.net. Here are just a few of the most important elements: Fall meal distribution will begin on August 31 through our bus system, with over 1,095 stops daily. Most students will be able to pick up their meals between 7 am and 9 am. For K-12 students, the school day will start at 9:15 am, right after our meal distribution. For Pre-K students, it will start at 9 am or 9:15 am based on the location. Students will experience a full instructional day, including a mix of live instruction, independent work, and small group or one-on-one check-ins. Click above to continue reading!

  • RPS Direct Update - August 10, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, It's hard to believe, but our three new schools are nearly complete! Henry L. Marsh III Elementary School (replacing George Mason ES), Cardinal Elementary School (replacing Greene ES), and River City Middle School (replacing Elkhardt-Thompson MS) are BEAUTIFUL! If you haven't driven by them lately, I encourage you to do so. I guarantee they'll put a huge smile on your face. Thank you, RVA, for eating out and funding these modern facilities that shout "We love you!" to our students. With great appreciation, Jason

  • RPS Direct Update - August 6, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I'm thrilled to share the details of our student #ReopenWithLove Learning Kits! We're moving and heaven and earth to make sure they're ready prior to the start of the year, but please understand that a few things are out of our control (for example, COVID-related shipping delays). I'll continue to share updates as I have them. Thank you for your patience and understanding! I'm also excited to share that, starting this week, RPS staff and volunteers have been hitting the streets for a series of Community Walks to share #ReopenWithLove information with our families. You can find the full schedule here. As a reminder, for all the latest information about our reopening plans, just go to the main #ReopenWithLove section of our website. We're adding new details every day! With great appreciation,

He'll also be playing a key role in the implementation of our racial justice policy agenda and working to develop mentoring opportunities for new teachers. Click here to learn more. Please join me in thanking Mr. Robinson for taking on this incredibly important leadership role! Turning to school reopening, please note that we've launched a #ReopenWithLove section of our website, where you can find all the latest information about our virtual semester, including the full #ReopenWithLove plan.

  • RPS Direct Update - August 3, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Please join us for this evening's School Board meeting at 6 pm on our Facebook page. As a reminder, you don't need a Facebook account to watch. We'll be digging into our reopening plan, which you can view here. We're incredibly grateful to the hundreds of students, teachers, principals, division and support staff, parents, caregivers, and community members who helped craft this plan. We're especially appreciative for the feedback we've received during our weekly Reopening Committee Meetings, weekly Principal Meetings, monthly Teacher Advisory Council Meetings, and nearly daily small-group teacher and instructional specialist meetings. There's still lots more work to do, but let's pause to express our gratitude to everyone who has helped thus far!

  • RPS Direct Update - July 30, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, It's hard to believe, but today is the last day of our virtual summer school, RPS SummerCamp@Home. I couldn’t be more grateful to everyone who made this innovative and exciting programming possible – from our incredible Academic Programs and Supports team to the wonderful partners we have at the YMCA and NextUp RVA. From all the feedback we've received, it sounds like RPS SummerCamp@Home hit the spot! But don't take my word for it. Listen to one of our parents, Meaghan West, who's this week's RPS Voice. Thank you for making the time to share you reflections, Ms. West! With great appreciation, Jason
