RPS Direct Update - June 17, 2020

Dear #RPSStrong Family, Don't miss RPS Live! this evening for a discussion and celebration of Juneteenth. I'll be joined by student co-host Asia Goode, as well as Janine Bell, President of the Elegba Folklore Society, and Ma’asehyahu Isra-UI, RPS Instructional Specialist for History and Social Sciences. "See" you at 7 pm on our Facebook page! I also want to announce that we'll be closed on Monday in observance of Juneteenth. Why Monday and not Friday? Because RPS is already closed on Fridays during the summer (staff work extended hours M-Th). Thus, declaring Friday "off" doesn't provide any additional benefit to our employees, who will have already worked their full tour of duty for the week. To rectify that, we're closing on Monday. Please note that we will still have food distribution on Monday (and all Fridays throughout the summer).
