RPS Direct Update - November 20 (PM), 2020

Dear #RPSStrong Family, Happy Friday! Just a few reminders tonight: All RPS schools and offices will be closed next Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for Thanksgiving. Please note that we'll be providing double meals next Monday and Tuesday. For more information, please go to www.rvaschools.net/meals. Our surveys about the second semester are still open. If you haven't had a chance to weigh in, please do so using the following links: Family Survey in English, Encuesta de Familias en Español, and Staff Survey. As of 5 pm today, we're up to 2,447 staff responses and 4,913 family responses (English and Spanish). Don't forget that the deadline to apply for out-of-zone schools and specialty schools is December 1 at 4:30 pm. To learn about the different programs at our schools, check out our Virtual School Tour. The Lit Limo will be very busy tomorrow. We hope to see you!
