    Greetings Albert Hill Family,

    Out of an abundance of caution, we are cancelling tonight’s performance of Bedtime stories as told by my dad who messed them up. We are extremely proud of Mrs. Vollmer, all student performers, and the stage crew who prepared for the show over the last few months. They had an amazing performance last night! We would also like to thank the Albert Hill staff who assisted, our PTA and wonderful parent volunteers who made this all possible.

    We ask for your understanding in this decision that we have made to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and community. Thank you for your continued support.

    In partnership,

     

    Tashiana Ivy

  • Rezoning – Please see below from some FAQs regarding rezoning implementation.
    • How do I find out what school my child is zoned for? Just click the button below and you'll be taken to a map where you can enter your address and see your zone for next year. Click on "View School Zones" and then make sure you've checked the box for "Board Approved" elementary, middle, or high school zones.
    What school am I zoned for next year?
    • What did the Board decide about "grandfathering?" The Board voted to provide any rising 5th, 8th, and 12th graders (students who will be in those grades NEXT year) with the option of remaining at their current school regardless of the new zones. (We will soon share the formal process for eligible students/families to exercise this option. Please do not use the Open Enrollment/Specialty School application platform, SmartChoice, to make this selection.)
    • If one of my children is “grandfathered-in” at their current school, can my other child/children remain at that school? No. Siblings must attend their zoned school unless they received their current placement through Open Enrollment in a previous year.
    • Will transportation be provided for students who are “grandfathered-in” at their current school? As is common practice in Virginia school divisions, transportation will not be provided for students who are “grandfathered-in” at their current school. 
    • Can I opt to send my child to a school other than the one to which they are assigned under the new zones? Students may attend a school other than their zoned school only by applying through the Open Enrollment or Specialty School Application process.
    • Will students with IEPs be “grandfathered-in” at their current schools? Students who have IEPs will not be "grandfathered-in" unless they are entering 5th, 8th, or 12th grade at the start of the 2020-2021 school year.
    • Will IEP services for my child change if they are rezoned to a different school? No. Students will receive the services outlined in their IEP regardless of the school they attend.
    • How will RPS support the transition of students with IEPs? RPS staff will work with parents to ensure that students have smooth transitions to their new schools, including setting up "Transition Meetings" with the relevant special education teachers, as necessary.
    • How is RPS going to build community for students who are going to new schools? We will host a number of open houses and community-building events during the spring and summer to help introduce students/families to their new schools.
    • Where can I go if I want to learn more about the rezoning process? Please visit the RPS website at rvaschools.net/rezoning.

  • Did you know you can link your Kroger account to Albert Hill so that the school receives rewards from every purchase you make?

     Here’s how you do it -- first, open up your Kroger app. In the top right corner of the app, from the opening screen hit the four square symbol in the top right corner. Then press My Account, and then Community Rewards under the Loyalty tab. It'll ask you to sign in with your email address, and then all you have to do is search for Albert Hill.

     It couldn’t be easier to support Albert Hill!

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I hope you all had a chance to enjoy the beautiful weather today! I managed to squeeze in a family bike ride to the Union Presbyterian Seminary. The pathways and ramps make an excellent race course for our boys :). Since it's Sunday, I'm sticking with shout-outs. I'll have lots more to share tomorrow. Have a wonderful evening! With great appreciation, Jason Click above to read more!

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Since it's Saturday, I'm just doing shout-outs. Before I get to them, just a quick reminder that we still need volunteers to help with our food distribution program. If you're willing and able, please sign up here. Thank you! With great appreciation, Jason Shout-outs! – Please keep sending them to me at jkamras@rvaschools.net! I want to say thank you to Mrs. Renesha Parks for continuing to provide professional development opportunities for all Special Education Staff during school closure...Again, thank you Mrs. Renesha Parks, you’re the BEST!

  • COVID-19 Update - April 3, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I know the days of the week have all sort of blurred together, but happy Friday nonetheless! A few notes before we head into the weekend. I want to remind everyone that RPS@Home, our pre-packaged online lessons, will launch on Monday. I'll send a quick message when it's live, along with some introductory notes. We have a School Board meeting on Monday (5 members in-person and the others virtually, per VA statute), where I'll be sharing recommendations about how to handle third quarter and final grades. In my Tuesday RPS Direct, I'll provide an update based on our discussions Monday evening. Click above to read more!

  • COVID-19 Update - April 2, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, As I shared yesterday, we'll be rolling out the 2nd generation of our online learning plan, which we're calling "RPS@Home," on Monday. In preparation for that, I want to clarify expectations for our teachers during the closure. First let me say how thrilled I am that so many of our educators have taken it upon themselves to leverage YouTube, FaceTime, ClassDojo, and so many other online resources to stay connected with their students and support them academically and emotionally. Because of their efforts, I am prouder and more inspired than ever before to be a part of the RPS Family! I do want to be clear that these efforts – while laudable – are not required. Many of our teachers have children of their own and/or other family members to care for all day; some are sick themselves; and some are struggling with economic insecurity because their partners just lost their jobs. On their behalf, I am humbly asking for grace from our families during this very difficult time. Click above to read more.

  • COVID-19 Update - April 1, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I'm excited to share that we'll be rolling out the 2nd generation of our online learning plan, which we're calling "RPS@Home," on Monday. It will have a daily schedule of lessons for just about every grade and subject, with very clear directions for students and families. We're hoping RPS@Home will provide more structure so that families have less to figure out on a day-to-day basis. I'll have a lot more information about this in my Friday message, so keep an eye out for it! One important caveat: To be able to access RPS@Home, you're going to need a computer and internet access. That's why we're asking any RPS family who needs these resources to let us know ASAP by filling out this survey. Please spread the word!

  • COVID-19 Update - March 31, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, As I have shared previously, given our unyielding commitment to educational equity, we're working furiously to provide computers and internet access to any RPS students who need them. If your child needs these resources, please complete the survey as soon as possible. We are advertising the survey in English and Spanish via texts, robo-calls, social media, traditional media, and – starting tomorrow – in-person at our food distribution sites. Still, we recognize that these communication channels don't reach everyone, so please share this information with your networks. Shout-outs! – Please keep sending them to me at jkamras@rvaschools.net! Click above to read more.

  • COVID-19 Update - March 30, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, As you have likely seen by now, the Governor just issued a stay-at-home order for the entire Commonwealth. I've received several emails asking what this means for our food distribution program and our efforts to help students continue to learn. In short, these activities can and will continue. Both the plain text of the order (see relevant sections below) and guidance from State Superintendent Lane have confirmed this. Click above to read more.
