    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    I hope this message finds you and your families well.

    Richmond Public Schools is currently in the process of scheduling student courses for the 2020-2021 school year! To best support families during our time of social distancing, Richmond Public Schools will utilize an Online Course Selection process, using online forms for all secondary (middle & high) school students. Online Course Selection forms are below and on Boushall’s school website, Facebook and Twitter pages. Use the link that your child will be in next year. If your child is going to ninth grade next year, the Online Course Selection forms are now available on the website of the high school your child is scheduled to attend for the 2020-2021 school year.

    In the event you need a Boushall Online Course selection form paper copy, they will be available at the school during food distribution hours and after hours in a box near our school's door bell. You can return in the designated box as well. All course selection forms should be completed no later than Friday, May 29, 2020. 

    Our school offices are currently closed due to COVID-19. However, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact the appropriate grade level school counselor listed on the school’s website.  On behalf of Thomas C.

  • RPS Direct Update - June 1, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, This evening, I find myself at a loss for words to adequately convey my anguish over the current state of our nation. And so I offer those of someone far more eloquent: Presidential Medal of Freedom Recipient Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Below is his column from this weekend's LA Times in its entirety. I urge you to read it. With great appreciation, Jason Click above to continue reading.

  • RPS Direct Update - May 29, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, A number of you asked that I re-share the resources from the Center for Racial Justice in Education. Here they are. I also wanted to address the growing criticism of those who have registered their outrage about the injustice of Mr. Floyd's death through protest riots. Now, more than ever, the words of Dr. King – particularly the challenging ones – resonate. "In the final analysis, a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it that America has failed to hear?" That's the question we must all confront. Let's make sure that we continue to do so long after the camera crews leave Minneapolis – not only as a country, but also as a school division. What more can we all do to hear – and be responsive to – the voices of those in our community who are most in pain?

  • RPS Direct Update - May 28, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Before diving into today's updates, I want to acknowledge the additional pain that is coursing through our community right now as a result of George Floyd's harrowing death at the hands of a white Minneapolis police officer. The similarity to the Eric Garner case, down to both men's cries – "I can't breath" – is chilling, to say the very least. Nearly 35% of RPS students are African-American young men. The America that they will experience over the course of their lives is fraught with racist prejudices – held consciously or not – that dehumanize them and make deaths like Mr. Floyd's not just possible, but common. We must change that. Our responsibility as educators is so much more than just teaching reading and math. It's about preparing our young people with the knowledge, skills, and social capital they'll need to construct a better, more just world – and doing whatever we can as adults to pave the way for them. Towards that end, I'd like to make a request of my fellow white members of the RPS community: If you haven't already done so, please discuss Mr. Floyd's death – and the long history of racialized violence that precedes it – with your children. Yes, it may be difficult. But families of color don't have much choice when it comes to "the talk" – it's literally a matter of life and death for them. For the entire RPS Family, here's a set of resources for talking with young people about race, racism, and racialized violence from the Center for Racial Justice in Education. Finally, to everyone who is processing this tragedy with great pain, please know that your RPS family stands with you – and always will. With great appreciation, Jason
