January 2021 is National Mentoring Month, and we hope you will join us in saying "Thank You" to our incredible teachers, administrators and staff members that have worked tirelessly to ensure all our students still have acces to education, even if it might look a little bit different this year.
At Richfield Public Schools, we want to be part of the solution—part of helping to realize Dr. King’s dream: that his children and children everywhere “will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
Information about the online course, "Connected: How to Show Up For Your Kids in the Digital Age" available free to RPS families through the Spark & Stitch Institute.
This update includes important dates for the transition of PK-5 students to the hybrid learning program.
Even if you missed the back to school sale, we still have a sweet deal for you! For a limited time, purchase your yearbook for $60 (plus tax).
At last night’s school board meeting, we recommended a return to hybrid learning for students in grades PK-5 effective Monday, January 25. This applies only to those students who were previously enrolled in the hybrid program. Please carefully review this detailed information if this transition applies to your child.
Following the guidance from Governor Walz last week, we will remain in distance learning when we return from break, but we anticipate transitioning back into hybrid learning for students in grades PK-5 shortly after.
To help ensure you receive information about programs and resources for your family, including events and activities at school, we are moving to an e-flyer system called Peachjar.
If you’re looking for a way to stay up to date on your child’s academics, you can use automated emails through Schoology, which will send you a daily or weekly email with key information on grades, missing assignments and more.
We're partnering with the Spark & Stitch Institute to offer a series of webinars for RPS families: Parenting in a Pandemic, The Science of Motivation and Showing Up For Your Kids in the Digital Age.
