RPS Direct Update - July 12, 2021

Dear #RPSStrong Family, It's great to be back! Many thanks to the RPS team for holding it down while I attended a family reunion for the first time in almost two years. It's amazing how much I missed the simple things – like our (very loud) meals together :). Tonight's updates: Summer Session – The first day of our in-person PK-8 summer session is in the books! Big shout-out to the dozens of team members who made this possible. Thank you also to our families and staff for your grace and understanding as we iron out the inevitable wrinkles that come with reopening after 1.5 years of fully virtual operations. If you have any feedback, please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly at jkamras@rvaschools.net. Thank you! Mask Guidance – We recognize that the evolving guidance about who should wear a mask – and when – can be very confusing. To keep things simple and to continue to protect the health and safety of our students and staff, RPS is continuing to mandate masks for all students, staff, and visitors. Thank you for your support with this (still) important mitigation strategy.
