Back to School
Dear RPS Family,
Welcome back! As we start the 2023-24 school year, l am excited about the fantastic journey on which our students, staff, and families are about to embark. I continue to see first-hand how joy, dedication, and warmth flow through the halls of each and every school in the division. At RPS, we love you here. We strive for every student to feel a sense of belonging in the classroom, and for every parent to feel engaged and secure in their child’s education. As we approach the start of school, know how excited we are here at RPS to see your child back in the classroom. Each school year is a fresh start, and we’re truly excited to start things off right!
Please download our 2023-24 Family Checklist. It includes everything you need to know and do for the upcoming school year. Please complete each item that applies to your family as soon as possible, and return beginning-of-year paperwork by August 31 (August 3 for RPS200 schools).
As always, communication between our schools and families remains the key to our success. Towards that end, I want to highlight some of the best ways to stay connected with RPS:
RPS Direct – Visit www.rvaschools.net/rps-direct to subscribe to my daily email!
Remind Messaging – Visit www.rvaschools.net/remind to sign up for our text messaging system, which provides critical updates about your school and the division.
Our staff are excited to welcome you back and get off to a year full of excitement, discovery, and love! We love you here and are honored to serve you and your family.
With great appreciation,
Call the Family Support Line at (804) 780-6195 if you need further assistance!
