"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - January 25 (PM), 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Please email me your principal shout-outs to celebrate Virginia School Principal Appreciation Week! Also, make sure to tune in for RPS Live! on Wednesday to meet and learn from a few of our amazing school leaders. As always, you can catch the livestream on the RPS Facebook page at 7 pm. Reminder for RPS staff: Don’t miss "Mindful Mondays" and "Be Well Wednesdays" with our partners at SCAN and BareSOUL! See the flyer below for additional information and check your RPS email account for previously sent registration links. As a mentor of mine used to say: In education, all we are is a group of big people helping a group of little people. And if the big people aren't healthy, the little ones won't be. Please take the time to care for yourself – it's absolutely critical.
