RPS Direct Update - July 14, 2021

Dear #RPS Strong Family, I'm reaching out with this special RPS Direct to share the following COVID-19 positive test result/s: Broad Rock Elementary School Summer Site: 1 student (in person) – The Broad Rock ES Summer Site will be CLOSED tomorrow, July 15, so that we can conduct contact tracing. Any individuals who were in close contact with the student – defined by the Virginia Department of Health as within 6 feet, with or without a mask, for 15 minutes or longer during a 24-hour period – will be notified. At this time, we plan to reopen the Broad Rock ES Summer Site on Monday, July 19. Please reach out to your primary care provider if you have any concerns, or contact the Richmond City Health District (RCHD) by calling their COVID-19 hotline: (804) 205-3501. Please also continue to wear your mask and stay physically distant if you are not vaccinated, and wash your hands. Our number one priority remains the health and safety of our students, staff, and families. Towards that end, we will continue to work in close collaboration with RCHD to ensure the well-being of the entire RPS community.
