"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - September 21, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, On behalf of RPS, I want to extend our heartfelt sympathies to the two students who were injured in the shooting yesterday at Heritage High School in Newport News. Thankfully, both students will soon heal physically. The emotional trauma, however, may last for quite some time. I pray that these young people have the support they need to process yesterday's events and ultimately move through them. I also want to acknowledge the fear and anxiety in our own community related to a number of disturbing social media posts about RPS high schools over the last 48 hours. Please know that we take every potential threat extremely seriously. We're grateful for the security and investigative support we've received over the past two days (and continue to receive) from the Richmond Police Department and the US Department of Homeland Security. I assure you that we will continue to remain vigilant, as our number one priority is – and always will be – the safety of the RPS family.
