RPS Direct Update - January 14 (2nd PM), 2021
Dear #RPSStrong Family, I'm overjoyed to share that the registration link for the COVID-19 vaccine has now been emailed to all RPS employees! I want to thank Dr. Danny Avula, the Virginia Department of Health, and the Richmond City Health District for moving so swiftly to ensure that all teachers, administrators, and support staff have access to the vaccine. I also want to thank Sandra Lee, our Chief Talent Officer, and her team for coordinating everything behind the scenes. Though the vaccine is not required, I strongly encourage our employees to take it. I acknowledge and understand the hesitation among some in the Black community given egregious historical injustices and deception by the medical profession. Given this, please take whatever time you need to develop a level of comfort with the inoculation.
