RPS Direct Update - September 15 (PM), 2020

Dear #RPSStrong Family, Thank you so much for all the feedback about our first week – and, in particular, about our schedule length. Please keep sending your thoughts – about what's working and what's not – by emailing me at jkamras@rvaschools.net. Based on what I've heard so far, it looks like some adjustments are necessary. We're working through the details and I'll have more information soon. Again, thank you for the feedback! Switching gears, today is the start of LatinX Heritage Month and we're thrilled to honor the history, culture and contributions of the LatinX community in Richmond and beyond. Before going any further, I want to acknowledge the differing perspectives on which term to use when referring to the LatinX community. At RPS, we use the term "LatinX" because it's considered by many to be the most inclusive, as it's gender-neutral. That said, we recognize and respect that others prefer Latino, Latina, or Hispanic.
