    Jayem Family,

    Welcome to the official start to the 20-21 school year!  This time of year brings on so much excitement! New beginnings, a fresh start, and opportunities for growth!  This year is no different.  We may be starting the year in an unconventional way, but it is still a start!

    We know that we are trend setters! The Joy and Pride leads the way! So as we embrace our new virtual year, let's do it with:

    Pride - Knowing who we are

    Love - Why we do this work

    Joy - Learning a new way of being

    Patience - With ourselves and each other 

    Hope - Meeting our students where they are

    Inspiration - What guides us to be amazing

    Transformation - Never falling back into mediocracy

    Excellence - Exceeding Expectations

    Together we are Justices 


    Excellence is loading...

    Jayem, let's get ready! 

    We will Exceed Expectations with Excellence!

    We love you and there's nothing you can do about it!

    Excellence is Loading.....

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - September 23, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, A huge thank you to everyone who submitted public comment about our schedules for Monday night's School Board meeting, and to the REA leadership for providing feedback directly to Dr. Epp today. We're using all of this input to make a few more adjustments to the draft schedules we shared on Monday. I'll circle back soon with updates. In the meantime, please feel free to continue reaching out to me with any additional thoughts. Don't forget to tune in for RPS Live! tonight at 7 pm on our Facebook page. I'll be joined by Karla Ramos (Manager, Office of Multicultural Affairs for the City of Richmond), Fernando Rodriguez (Communications Director, Richmond & Henrico Health Districts), Jannette Duhart (RPS Bilingual and EL Language Coordinator), and Yahusef Medina (RPS Bilingual Family Liaison) for a discussion of the heritage, culture, and diversity of the Hispanic/Latino/Latina/Latinx community in Richmond. With great appreciation, Jason

  • RPS Direct Update - September 22, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I am devastated to share that we lost two RPS students last night – one from Franklin Military Academy and one from Richmond Alternative School – in two separate tragedies. The students had connections to a number of other schools, including Henderson Middle School, Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School, Chimborazo Elementary School, and Huguenot High School. All of these communities are grieving this evening; please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. On behalf of RPS, I want to extend my deepest condolences to both students' families. As a parent, I can't bear to imagine the pain they are experiencing right now. I pray that the RPS family will do whatever is necessary to provide them with a glimmer of light amidst the darkness they now face. With great appreciation, Jason
