Announcements

  • M.E.

    Miss Monique Evans has served with Miles Jones since 2019 and has hit the ground running! She works with students, staff, and parents both confidentially and with sincere concern. She participates on many committees in the school and desires the best for all. This is evident in the love and care she shows as she grooms our students for middle school success and guides our younger students in lessons in mindfulness and emotional awareness.

    Congratulations to you, Miss Evans for a job well done! 

    Happy School Counselor's Week!

  • RPS Direct Update - July 21, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Tonight's updates: Mask Guidance – Despite today's announcement from the Virginia Department of Health and the Virginia Department of Education allowing for more leniency with mask-wearing in middle and high schools, at RPS, we will be maintaining our 100% mask-wearing policy for all students, staff, and visitors. We feel this is the safest course of action, particularly with the surging delta variant.
