RPS Direct Update - January 11 (PM), 2021

Dear #RPSStrong Family, I want to begin tonight with a brief update about the COVID-19 vaccine. As you are likely aware, Virginia is currently in Phase 1A of distribution, which is focused on healthcare workers and residents/staff of long-term care facilities. We'll soon be transitioning to Phase 1B, which includes essential workers and individuals who are 75 and older. Please note that all RPS employees are included in Phase 1B. We are currently in conversations with the Virginia Department of Health about timelines and operational details. As soon as I have additional information, I'll be sure to share it in my RPS Direct. In the meantime, please continue to wear your mask, practice physical distancing, and wash your hands. These simple steps remain absolutely critical. Turning to the events of last week, a number of you reached out for guidance about how to support children and young adults in these uncertain times. Please see below for a few resources.
