RPS Direct Update - January 13 (PM), 2021

Dear #RPSStrong Family, Thank you for all the wonderful suggestions about how to use the federal stimulus in response to COVID-19. The two themes I heard the most were: 1) adding instructional time and support to help catch students up both academically and social-emotionally; and 2) investing in our facilities to make them healthier places to learn and work. Please know that I'm going to incorporate both of these themes into my budget presentation for Tuesday. Again, thank you! Turning to the COVID-19 vaccine, as I shared on Monday, Virginia will soon transition to Phase 1B, which includes all RPS employees. We know there are lots of questions about the vaccine so I'm hosting a special vaccine edition of RPS Live! for our staff at 4:30 pm on Friday, January 15, on the RPS Facebook page. I'll be joined by Amy Popovich and LaWanda Dunn from the Richmond City Health District. If you can't make it, don't worry; we'll post a recording that you can watch at any time.
