Principal's Message

  • Principal Jones Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!  What a profound change we’ve experienced over the past few months.  As we now know, RPS is prepared to implement Distance Learning for all students, beginning September 8, 2020.    Virtual or Distance Learning is defined as instruction in which the students and the teacher are in different locations.  It’s important to note that Distance Learning includes a range of methods and strategies, not limited to a full day of digital/online learning.  Our teachers will connect with each of their students on a regular basis, prioritizing their time together to focus on the most important, relevant learning.  For this to be effective teachers and parents must work as a team to co-facilitate learning, design consistent routines, and establish a learning environment in which students can thrive. Our unique journey together has just begun, so please be ready to keep adjusting in the weeks ahead.  Let’s work together even harder to strengthen our partnership and commitment in order to make this a Great Year of Learning for our Ginter Park scholars!  We appreciate your patience, support, and grace as we move forward together.  Gator Nation...Stronger TOGETHER!!

  • 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).
