Richmond Community High School

A National School of Excellence

Principal's Message

  • Principal Massenburg Pharaohs,

    At the close of each year, I take time to pause and reflect on the successes and challenges that came with being a part of the Richmond Community family. This year, I was reminded that 2020 was a year unlike any other, but in spite of unexpected and—at times—difficult circumstances, we prevailed! We can take pride in our ability to adapt, embrace change, and achieve.

    Each new year brings about another 365 days to set new intentions and tackle new goals. So as we usher in 2021 and the second half of the school year, I am excited to welcome everyone back. All signs point to an incredible finish! Let’s recommit to our core values by remaining innovative, adaptable, and eager to learn!

    Never forget that excellence is in our DNA, woven into the very fabric of who we are. I look forward to a fresh start on January 4! Please remember: We are Pharaohs..., leading the way while standing FIRM in our excellence! ALL IN, ALL ONE, ALL PHARAOHS! Bring it on, 2021!

  • RPS Direct Update (PM) - January 22, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I have some important updates regarding the COVID-19 vaccinations scheduled for next week. Due to the national vaccine shortage, the Virginia Department of Health is rescheduling RPS employees who were previously registered for January 25, 26, 30, and 31. (See the FAQs below for more information.) Of note: If your appointment is on Monday, January 25, it will be moved to a new time on Friday, January 29. If your appointment is on Tuesday, January 26, it will be moved to the same time on Wednesday, February 3. If your appointment is on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday (January 27, 28, or 29), there will be no changes. If your appointment is on Saturday, January 30, your appointment will be moved to the same time on Thursday, February 4. If your appointment is on Sunday, January 31, your appointment will be moved to the same time on Friday, February 5. If you were originally scheduled for next Monday, Tuesday, Saturday, or Sunday, you will receive an automated confirmation of your new appointment from “Acuity Scheduling” in the coming days. On Monday, January 25, RPS nurses will begin reaching out to everyone impacted by these changes to provide assistance. Click above to read more!

Boushall Middle School on 1/14) Thomas H.
