  • Dear Richmond Families,


    Welcome back to all of our returning families and welcome to any new families coming to Richmond this year. There have been a few changes with staff and some changes in the main office, and we are really excited about the year ahead! Throughout the summer, PPS has been sending out updates about lead water testing, radon, and lead paint. All of those updates can be found on the Healthy Schools page on the PPS website. The district has also put together a short video regarding details about drinking water. Like all PPS schools, our drinking fountains are turned off and will remain off throughout the year until further notice.  There are water coolers stationed throughout the school in each hallway. While there are papers cups attached to each cooler for student use, I am hoping that we can reduce waste by asking families to send their child(ren) to school with a resuable water bottle.


    We are looking at some additional changes particularly in how teachers, staff, and administration communicate with families. For example, the school recently started a Twitter account to send out special events, assemblies, and daily happenings at our school. Important news items will still be communicated through email. We will continue to have a monthly newsletter (Richmond Shinbun), however, we will not be sending home photocopies with every single student. The newsletter will be available on the Richmond website as well as a limited number of photocopies will be in the office. If you want a paper version of the newsletter sent home with your child, please contact the office. We will be soliciting feedback during parent-teacher conferences about our communication and other ways to strengthen home-school connections.


    I am excited about being the interim principal this year at Richmond. Please know that I am available if you have any questions, concerns, or thoughts about our school community.

    Dave Allen

    Interim Principal
