    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.

"RPS Direct" Emails from Supt. Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - August 6, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I'm thrilled to share the details of our student #ReopenWithLove Learning Kits! We're moving and heaven and earth to make sure they're ready prior to the start of the year, but please understand that a few things are out of our control (for example, COVID-related shipping delays). I'll continue to share updates as I have them. Thank you for your patience and understanding! I'm also excited to share that, starting this week, RPS staff and volunteers have been hitting the streets for a series of Community Walks to share #ReopenWithLove information with our families. You can find the full schedule here. As a reminder, for all the latest information about our reopening plans, just go to the main #ReopenWithLove section of our website. We're adding new details every day! With great appreciation,

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Please join us for this evening's School Board meeting at 6 pm on our Facebook page. As a reminder, you don't need a Facebook account to watch. We'll be digging into our reopening plan, which you can view here. We're incredibly grateful to the hundreds of students, teachers, principals, division and support staff, parents, caregivers, and community members who helped craft this plan. We're especially appreciative for the feedback we've received during our weekly Reopening Committee Meetings, weekly Principal Meetings, monthly Teacher Advisory Council Meetings, and nearly daily small-group teacher and instructional specialist meetings. There's still lots more work to do, but let's pause to express our gratitude to everyone who has helped thus far!

  • RPS Direct Update - July 30, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, It's hard to believe, but today is the last day of our virtual summer school, RPS SummerCamp@Home. I couldn’t be more grateful to everyone who made this innovative and exciting programming possible – from our incredible Academic Programs and Supports team to the wonderful partners we have at the YMCA and NextUp RVA. From all the feedback we've received, it sounds like RPS SummerCamp@Home hit the spot! But don't take my word for it. Listen to one of our parents, Meaghan West, who's this week's RPS Voice. Thank you for making the time to share you reflections, Ms. West! With great appreciation, Jason

  • RPS Direct Update - July 28, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, At Monday's School Board meeting, we'll be sharing additional details about how our virtual semester will work. We'll be discussing food, technology, academics, and much more. In advance of that meeting, though, I'd like to address one question I've received from a number of teachers: namely, whether you'll be able to teach from your classrooms. After considering feedback from dozens of RPS educators – including those on our Reopening Task Force – I've decided that we will not be allowing this. Please allow me to explain. First, opening our buildings for staff to use would undermine our commitment to doing everything humanly possible to safeguard the health and safety of our employees. It's quite possible that allowing in-classroom teaching would lead to several dozen adults being in a building at the same time. This would increase the risk of transmission precisely at a time when everyone is making extraordinary sacrifices to lower it. Second...

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! As you can see, we have quite a few shout-outs today, which always puts a smile on my face. Let's keep them coming! Please take a minute this evening to submit a shout-out to someone in the RPS Family who's made a difference in your life. It will only take a minute, but it will have a huge impact! With great appreciation, Jason
