    Happy New Year Fox Family!                                                                                        

    From the bottom of my heart, I hope that each and every one of you had a healthy and safe holiday season.  I am so thankful for the break and the time that I was able to spend with my immediate family, unplugged, and just being together.  This Hanukkah and Christmas were different than they have ever been for our family (as I am sure they were for you as well), no parties, no gathering with extended family; but upon reflection, I will cherish the time I had with my two sons and husband!  

    Now it is time to get back into the routines of school for our kiddos!  Even though I cannot hug and ‘high-five’ everyone, I am looking forward to seeing all of your faces tomorrow, Monday, January 4, 2021!!!  So, find and gather your school materials (EL and Math books, paper/pencils etc.) put your headphones with your computer, charge your Chromebook, make your lunch/snacks, go to bed early so you can be ready for morning announcements at 9:05 am Monday morning!

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - April 22, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Just a few quick updates tonight: Course Selection – The deadline for 6th-11th graders to select courses for next year via SchoolLinks has been extended until May 7. Students can access SchooLinks by going to Clever and choosing the SchooLinks icon. Please reach out to your school counselor if you have questions. DonorsChoose – On Tuesday, May 4, starting at 7 am, every donation to an RPS project on DonorsChoose will be matched 50% thanks to SONIC Drive-In (while funds last). This means that a $20 donation will become a $30 donation, a $100 donation will become a $150 donation, and so on. Teachers: whether you need books for your students, a new coding kit, or something else entirely, now is a great time to create a project on DonorsChoose! Donors: Check out the RPS DonorsChoose page on Tuesday, May 4, to help fund these great projects!

  • RPS Direct Update - April 21, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Today is National Administrative Professionals Day and I'd like to send a very special shout-out to my amazing colleague Mildred DeLoatch, who does a whole lot of magic behind the scenes to help me do my job and keep RPS running. Thank you, Mildred! Please send your shout-outs to recognize the wonderful administrative professionals in our schools and offices and I’ll be sure to include them in RPS Direct. Today's updates: COVID-19 Vaccine – Earlier this week, Virginia entered Phase 2 of the COVID-19 vaccine rollout. In Phase 2, everyone 16 and older is eligible to receive the vaccine, which includes many of our high school students. Right now, 16 and 17-year-olds only qualify for the Pfizer vaccine and a parent must be present. To schedule an appointment, please register at www.vaccinate.virginia.gov. For additional resources and FAQs about the vaccine, visit the VDH website.
