Richmond Community High School

A National School of Excellence

Principal's Message

  • Principal Massenburg On behalf of everyone at Richmond Community High, I would like to welcome you all to the new school year! On Tuesday, September 8, 2020, we will kick things off!! Now, 20/20 is normally a term used to express clear vision. Clarity. Sharpness. However, this 2020 looks a little different and perhaps not the start we envisioned. There’s some uncertainty and probably a little anxiety—normal as we knew it has changed. So, while some things are a little fuzzy, what continues to remain clear is the strength of the Pharaoh spirit. Your administration and teachers have worked tirelessly throughout the summer on our school’s re-opening plan so that we can continue to serve each of you and promote a spirit of leadership, teamwork, and collaboration.

    With that in mind, our theme for this year is “Standing FIRM in Our Excellence.” 

    I am truly excited to welcome each of you to the 2020-2021 school year. And yes, things look a little different. Your living room may be your classroom, and your PC is your whiteboard, but our commitment to excellence remains the same. We will do our best to ensure each of you feel connected, challenged, and supported through rigorous, engaging, and quality instruction. The pandemic may have changed the way we teach and learn, but no task is too large for a Pharaoh. Our goal is not only to survive, but to thrive as we redefine and shape our new “normal.” We will work together to maintain our legacy of excellence and provide a virtual learning experience where each of you can grow and achieve. It is important that we approach this school year with same positive vibes we have in the past, and I challenge you all to continue to find ways to make this yet another incredible and productive school year. ALL IN, ALL ONE, ALL PHARAOHS!

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - October 22, 2020

    Dear #RPS Strong Family, I'm reaching out with this special RPS Direct to share that an RPS employee has tested positive for COVID-19. This individual works at Linwood Holton Elementary School and was last there on 9-22. Though the employee's presence at this RPS site occurred nearly a month ago, we still encourage anyone who was at this location on the date listed above to monitor their symptoms and reach out to their primary care provider if they have any concerns. Individuals can also contact RCHD’s COVID-19 hotline at (804) 205-3501. Our number one priority remains the health and safety of our students, staff, and families. We will continue to work in close collaboration with the Richmond City Health District to ensure the well-being of the entire RPS community.

  • RPS Direct Update - October 21, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Don’t forget to tune into RPS Live! tonight at 7 pm on our Facebook page and RPS en Vivo on tomorrow at 5:30 pm on our RPS en Español Facebook page. We’ll be joined by Luke Hostetter, RPS Director of School Planning, to answer all your questions about applying to specialty and out-of-zone schools. As a reminder, the application portal goes live tomorrow morning! To learn more, please visit the enrollment section of our website and/or email your questions to Turning to Election Day, please remember that we will be closed for students and staff. Because parent-teacher conferences were originally scheduled for that day, we're moving them to Wednesday, November 4, and Wednesday, November 11 (after class ends). The division-level and school-based professional development previously set for those days will be rescheduled. Please look for more specifics about parent-teacher conferences from your student's school.
