    Jayem Family,

    Welcome to the official start to the 20-21 school year!  This time of year brings on so much excitement! New beginnings, a fresh start, and opportunities for growth!  This year is no different.  We may be starting the year in an unconventional way, but it is still a start!

    We know that we are trend setters! The Joy and Pride leads the way! So as we embrace our new virtual year, let's do it with:

    Pride - Knowing who we are

    Love - Why we do this work

    Joy - Learning a new way of being

    Patience - With ourselves and each other 

    Hope - Meeting our students where they are

    Inspiration - What guides us to be amazing

    Transformation - Never falling back into mediocracy

    Excellence - Exceeding Expectations

    Together we are Justices

    We will Exceed Expectations with Excellence!

    We love you and there's nothing you can do about it!

    Excellence is Loading.....

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - October 23, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, My apologies for the technical glitch that held up my RPS Direct last night! Here's what was supposed to go out: I just finished participating in the Policy Pathways 2020 Awards Ceremony, which honored Governor Wilder and six area youth, including Terri Lee from Franklin Military, Jazz Miles from Richmond Community, and DeJia Graham from Franklin Military (see bios below). Policy Pathways is an innovative education program whose mission is to prepare young people to lead in the policy sector. This evening's celebration was incredibly inspiring, and that's in no small part due to the visionary leadership of Dr. D. Pulane Lucas, President and CEO of Policy Pathways. I also want to recognize School Board Member Dawn Page, who serves on the organization's Board of Directors, and School Board Vice-Chair Cheryl Burke, who nominated all three of the RPS students who received awards tonight.

  • 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.
