2022-2023 Proposed Calendar

05-10-2022 - The 2022-2023 Calendar was approved at the April 12, 2022 School Board Meeting. RCPS has every intention of keeping the calendar and the school start and end times as posted unless (1) McHarg Elementary is unable to open as expected. Again, RCPS is very optimistic that the division will be able to open all schools on August 15/16 and will keep the community up-to-date on the progress throughout the summer. Information on how the staggered start (August 15/16) will affect each grade level will be posted sometime in June and an alert will notify the community of that information. (2) RCPS is currently working with TripSpark Technologies to deliver accessible, flexible, and comprehensive transportation services to the school community. After review of proposed school bus routes for the 2022-2023 school year, the start and end times may vary slightly. As with the progress of McHarg's opening, RCPS will keep the community up-to-date on start and end times throughout the summer.

Superintendent’s Message

As we move into the holiday season, I would like to thank our entire school community for the efforts they have made to ensure that the opening of the school year 2021-2022 has been special for all. We have had a successful first quarter grading period under very difficult and challenging circumstances and continue to make great strides during the second quarter. In fact, I was asked by the state superintendent, Dr. James Lane, to share our successes with superintendents throughout the commonwealth just recently during one of our monthly superintendent meetings. I am hopeful that the successes we have seen over the last fifteen weeks will continue and that the COVID19 Pandemic will diminish in the near future so we can move to a sense of normalcy we have not experienced for close to two years. Please know how THANKFUL we are for our Great Students, Great Staff and Great School Community Members!
