"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras
Dear #RPSStrong Family, Lots to cover tonight, so let's dive in! First, I have a couple of updates about the vaccine registration process for RPS staff: As I noted on Friday, the Richmond City Health District (RCHD) had to cancel hundreds of appointments and disable the registration link that was previously shared. We've learned that a number of RPS staff had their appointments inadvertently canceled. I'm so sorry about the frustration and anxiety that caused. Please note that there will be a new registration system and new vaccination events scheduled for February. I'll share more information about this as soon as I have it. Finally, our nurses will be reaching out to any RPS employees who are currently working in-person (for example, bus drivers and nutrition workers) to ensure they are vaccinated – if they want to be – during the events scheduled for this week and next. If you have any other questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Click above to read more!
Twitter Facebook Instagram LinkedIn YouTube Friday (PM), January 15, 2021 Dear #RPSStrong Family, Happy Friday! I have a few very important updates tonight about vaccine registration: You may have just seen a news alert that thousands of registrations for the vaccination events next week at the Richmond Raceway were cancelled. To clarify, as I understand it, the intent was only to cancel invalid registrations. The upcoming events are strictly for school, police, and fire personnel. A number of individuals outside these fields signed up. Those are the registrations that were cancelled. The freed up slots will be distributed by each of the localities in central Virginia. I don't have more information on how that process will work just yet. As soon as I do, I'll share it with you. If you were not able to register yet, I'm told there will be more opportunities with a new registration system by early February. Again, as soon as I have more details, I'll share them. Like all of us at RPS, our public health officials are attempting to do something that's never been done before. So many people have extended us so much grace over the past year; I humbly ask that we do the same for our colleagues at VDH and RCHD. They are literally working day and night to distribute the vaccine as quickly as possible.
