Principal's Message

  • Dear Woodville Elementary School Community,

    Thank you for your ongoing commitment to Woodville Elementary School. As you recently learned, Principal Shannon Washington will be leaving at the end of the 2020-21 school year. We’d like to thank Principal Washington for her leadership and commitment to Woodville students and the community over the last four years.

    I’m excited to announce the appointment of Rickeita Jones as the interim principal of Woodville ES for the 2021-22 school year. Mrs. Jones has spent her career working to ensure that children have what they need to succeed and fulfill their purpose in life. Prior to being selected as the new interim principal, Mrs. Jones served as the assistant principal at Westover Hills Elementary School in RPS. In this role she supported students’ academic and social and emotional growth as well as supported teachers with professional learning. Mrs. Jones began her career as a science teacher in RPS, served as a department chair for science in Henrico Public Schools, and was the principal of Meherrin Elementary School in Southampton County, VA. She has a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Virginia Union University and a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Virginia State University.

    I am confident that Mrs. Jones’ experiences have prepared her for this opportunity – her past experiences as a principal and her current work in RPS – speak volumes to me about her work ethic, her commitment, and her passion. Mrs. Jones is eager to engage with the Woodville ES community and you should expect her to reach out soon.

    I want to thank you in advance for welcoming Mrs. Jones and know that I look forward to working closely with the Woodville ES community to ensure both the short-term and long-term success of the school.

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - September 24, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Happy Fall Friday! Tonight's updates: Richmond Virtual Academy (RVA) Waitlist Update – Please note the following: By next Friday, October 1, we will notify all preschool-5th grade families of their status – whether offered a seat or not – via the email address they used to register their student/s on the waitlist. In the interest of fairness, we are using a randomized selection process to identify students for the limited number of available seats. As I shared last week, there are unfortunately no more virtual seats for middle and high school students. Any family who is already enrolled in virtual can switch to in-person at any time by completing the Switch Pathways Form (Formulario de Cambio de Decisión).
