"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - January 21, 2021 (PM)

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Just a few updates and reminders tonight: This week's edition of RPS Live! is TOMORROW, January 22, from 4 - 5 pm. For the first 30 minutes, I’ll be joined by RPS nurses and a representative from the Richmond City Health District to answer more of your questions about the COVID-19 vaccine. For the second half hour, I’ll dive into our proposed budget for next year. I hope you can join for these important conversations! This coming Monday, January 25, is a teacher work day so there won't be any classes or meal distribution. Families can pick up an extra meal at our food distribution sites TOMORROW, January 22. Thank you to all employees who have completed the RPS Intent Form for the 2021-22 school year. As a reminder, it's due TOMORROW, January 22. If you have any questions, please contact LaTonya Leigh at lleigh@rvaschools.net. Congressman Donald McEachin is hosting his annual essay contest in celebration of Black History Month for middle and high school students. Please see the flyer below for details. All essays must be submitted by February 15. Click above to read more!
