Mary Munford Elementary School

Dedicated To Excellence

  • Greg Muzik Though this school year is projected to be different from any other, together, we will continue our tradition of providing an outstanding education to our students and quality service to our families. I am truly honored to continue leading the Munford community for the 2020-2021 school year with support from Ms. Miller, Ms. Gordon, Ms. Carlotti and the many wonderful teachers and support staff.

    We have accomplished so much as a school community and will continue to do so. This new learning model does not need to be a barrier, but instead will serve as an opportunity to change our mindset as it relates to the delivery of instruction and engaging students in learning.

    This year, I am very much looking forward to providing exceptional educational experiences for our students.  We want our students to LOVE learning and LOVE coming to school, even if it is virtually. With your help, we can instill life-long values in our students to work hard, exceed expectations, be kind to others, and to appreciate their education.

    Though we are forced to adapt our teaching and learning methods to address the conditions of the pandemic, our support for our students and families remains the same, and we will do everything in our power to keep our students thriving.

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - September 15, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, While we've been overjoyed to return to school despite COVID, we've also been heartbroken by another pandemic that plagues our community – gun violence. I'm devastated to share that, in the past 48 hours, five RPS students have been shot. We've also lost two students to other causes (unrelated to gun violence or COVID). These tragic events remind us of the grief and trauma that so many RPS students, families, and staff face daily. The RPS family is hurting tonight. Let us all pause this evening to check on one another, support one another, and extend grace and love to one another.

  • RPS Direct Update - September 14, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, One of the issues that came up during public comment at last night's School Board meeting was our school lunches. We heard concerns about the amount/quality of the food provided and the lack of hot meals. Before I address both of these issues, I want to thank everyone who shared feedback. Thoughtful, constructive dialogue about what's working – and what's not – is critical to our collective success and I'm deeply grateful for it. For the start of the school year, we decided against hot lunches and instead went with "grab and go" meals, as we were concerned about students bunching up in the lunch line for as much as 5 minutes, increasing the risk of transmission. We also had logistical concerns about hot lunches given that many of our schools use multiple locations for lunch (not just the lunch room) to ensure 6 feet of distancing. All that said, we do hope to eventually transition to hot meals once everyone has become accustomed to our mitigation strategies and we feel more confident in our ability to execute on the logistics. I'll also note that we have a significant number of vacancies on our food and nutrition team, which will make it difficult to provide hot meals right now. Fortunately, last night, the Board approved an increase in the hourly rate for our food and nutrition employees to help with recruitment and retention.
