Principal's Message

  • Principals Photo Dear Lion’s Den Parents, Students, and Community Members,

    Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our school community, including our amazing students, our loving staff, our supporting families  and partners, and our exciting programs!

    As your principal, I am honored to lead our school community to help provide an exciting and rigorous educational experience for our students. Our team is committed to ensuring that our students receive the best possible support to learn and grow. 

    This year’s theme is “Holton has D.R.E.A.M.S.” - Determined, Resilient, Encouraged, & Authentically Motivated Students and Staff! My vision is to provide students with an educational experience that inspires and motivates them to be lifelong learners and caring contributors to the world around them. Our goal is to provide a nurturing environment that meets the individual needs of each student, both academically and socially.

    As you may know, Linwood Holton Elementary is special for a number of reason, but one of the reasons is YOU. Be sure and find ways to engage yourself in school life – your child will notice and respond. There are numerous opportunities for parental involvement. Together, we can make a positive difference. A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children. Families, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. May we all be present for the joy of learning, the satisfaction of a job well done, and the comfort that comes from belonging to a community. 

    If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out by phone (804-228-5310) or email (nhurt@rvaschools.net or jjeffers3@rvaschools.net).  Your concerns are our concerns, and we are always here to partner together to find a solution. All staff members can be reached by email as well, and you should expect to receive a response to your email or phone call within 48 hours.  

    Nikea Hurt, Ed. D.

    Proud Principal

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - September 25, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Happy Friday! Make sure to read all the amazing shout outs today; there are nearly three dozen! To close out the week, see below for a few pictures of our students' "classrooms" that families have shared with me. They've put a huge smile on my face, and I hope they do the same for you. With great appreciation, Jason

  • RPS Direct Update - September 24, 2020 (PM)

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I'd like to begin this evening by acknowledging the pain coursing through our community yet again in the wake of the decision yesterday by a Kentucky grand jury not to charge any of the officers involved in the death of Breonna Taylor with homicide or manslaughter. Outcomes like this only tear at the unhealed wounds borne by so many within the RPS family. Please check on your colleagues, friends, and loved ones this evening. Please recognize that they may need extra time and space to process this latest injustice. And please be there for them, in whatever capacity they need. Thank you. I also want to take a moment tonight to express my profound gratitude to 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 Coordinator), and Yahusef Medina (RPS Bilingual Family Liaison) for a candid, insightful, and educational discussion on RPS Live! yesterday about the Hispanic/Latin-American/Latino/a/x community in Richmond and RPS. A big thank you as well to Carlos Hernandez, our interpreter for the evening. If you missed this episode, I strongly encourage you to check it out here. With great appreciation, Jason
