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 ( or  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 - October 30, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, By far, what I miss the most this fall is face time (not FaceTime!) with our amazing students. Fortunately, I had the opportunity this morning to connect with a few Obama ES Stars when the Lit Limo and meal delivery bus stopped by. It was easily the highlight of my week :). I know I've said it before, but we owe an enormous debt of gratitude to the individuals on our food and transportation teams. They get up well before the sun rises to prep and deliver meals at more than a thousand bus stops – every single day. While I'm at it, can we please give it up for our teachers? I'm in awe of how creative, thoughtful, and determined they are with virtual instruction. Take, for example, the educators at Overby-Sheppard ES. They've arranged to have real-life authors visit their virtual classrooms to read to our students, discuss the writing process, and describe what it's like to be an author or illustrator. I just love that!

  • RPS Direct Update - October 29, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Last night's episode of RPS Live! featured a wonderful conversation about our new Community Hub model for family engagement. We have three hubs (Southside, East End, and Northside/West End) with 23 "family liaisons" who spend nearly all of their time IN neighborhoods – talking to families, checking on students, and providing support. Joining me for the discussion were Dr. Erin Brown, our new Director of Family Engagement, Chasity Rodriguez, our Southside Hub Coordinator, and Doron Battle, one of our East End Family Liaisons. I encourage you to watch this episode if you missed it! Switching gears, I invite you to show your love for our amazing school leaders by nominating them for an R.E.B. Award for Distinguished Educational Leadership. The nomination window closes Thursday, November 5, so don't delay! Speaking of deadlines, I want to remind RPS employees that tomorrow, Friday, October 30, is your last opportunity to make any benefits changes for 2021.
