George Wythe High School

Dedicated To Excellence

  • Principal Dear George Wythe High School Families,

    I hope your summer has been enjoyable despite these very challenging and uncertain times we’re currently living through. As we plan for the first virtual opening in the history of Richmond Public Schools in just a few weeks, I want to make you aware of some changes that we’ve made that will help your child be successful in a virtual high school environment. I also want to encourage you to reach out to the school team if you have questions or need additional information.

    First, every RPS student will have a district issued Chromebook in order to access the virtual platform. Schools will call families who had not yet picked up a Chromebook and/or hotspot to be sure your child has what s/he needs. You may also reach out to the school directly to
    share remaining needs including if you’re having issues with a Chromebook or need technology assistance. Secondly, all RPS high schools will implement a modified schedule for the 2020-21 school year where students will take four classes for the first semester of the year and then take four different classes for the second semester. This new schedule has benefits for students and teachers and works especially well in a virtual setting.

    Additional information will be shared during the grade-level virtual Back-to-School Night meetings we will host for students and parents later this month. We’ll send information with the date/time of the meetings shortly.

    Respectfully yours,

    Dr. Joseph Pisani

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - September 17, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Thank you to those of you who've sent feedback about our virtual instruction so far. I can't tell you how much we appreciate it! As I shared earlier in the week, it's clear we need to make some adjustments for students and teachers alike. Our Academic Office is working on some updated schedules as we speak and we'll have something concrete to share at the School Board meeting on Monday. In the meantime, please keep sending me your feedback about this, or any other, aspect of our virtual instruction. Thank you! Turning to my RPS Direct from Tuesday, I want to apologize to members of the Hispanic/Latina/Latino/Latinx community who felt overlooked, erased, or whitewashed by my comment that, "At RPS, we use the term LatinX" for this highly diverse community

  • RPS Direct Update - September 16 (PM), 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, It's National Arts in Education Week and we're thrilled to celebrate, as we know the arts aren’t extra, they’re core - for every child, in every neighborhood of our city. We're fortunate to have an amazing team of fine arts teachers across the division who bring their expertise and passion to their (now virtual) classrooms every day. Just take a look at this video created by Sharon Russell, the Art teacher at Albert Hill Middle School! As a reminder, don't forget that we're launching RPS en Vivo tomorrow at 5:30 pm on the RPS en Español Facebook page. I hope to see you there! Finally, please make sure to read the latest contribution from Rodney Robinson (see below) about the film "Black Boys." He's included links to some powerful articles that I encourage every RPS educator to read.
