  • Preschool for 5-year-olds

    Due to the effects of the pandemic on the 2020-2021 school year, the Virginia Department of Education will allow children turning 5 years-old on or before September 30, 2021 to register in Preschool for the 2021-2022 school year instead of going to Kindergarten. The purposes of this year’s exception are for children currently attending virtual preschool to stay one more year for an in-person preschool experience, and for children that did not attend preschool this year, to have the opportunity to prepare for Kindergarten.

    For more information, please send an email to preschool@rvaschools.net.

  • 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.
