Howdy neighbors! Please be aware that Superintendent Jason Kamras has announced that Richmond Public Schools will be closed the 27th of January, which is a Monday. This is due to approximately a third of our teachers will be attending the Fund Our Future Rally being held at the Virginia State Capital!
Here’s just a bit more information surrounding the closure, straight from the horse’s mouth:
“I recognize doing so will create an unexpected childcare burden for our working families. On behalf of RPS, I sincerely apologize for this. I also want to acknowledge that some of our families face food insecurity and depend on school meals for their children. In light of this, our nutrition team will be preparing “to-go” bags for students to take home on Friday afternoon.
Please note that our school calendar includes extra time to account for inclement weather and other unforeseen circumstances. As a result, at this time, no additional days will need to be added to the calendar.”
-Superintendent Jason Kamras
