Achieving Together ... ONE Family
Notes from Mrs. Hyatt
Dear Richmond Drive Families,
This week February 8 - 12 is Bus Driver Appreciation Week! Bus Drivers are an extremely important part of our everyday life for school. Although this year is different, we are also dependent on bus drivers for field trips. If your child currently rides the bus, take a minute to thank their bus driver. It's as easy as saying "thank you," making a card, or giving them a little treat! Bus Drivers are wonderful!
Valentine's Day will be celebrated this week but will look a little different this year in Rock Hill Schools as we continue to keep everyone safe during COVID-19. The school will be providing all food and fun for Valentine's Day. Although it's not what we all desire, we are not allowing any food, drink, or cards to be brought into the school. Thank you for your understanding.
With much appreciation,
Please stay safe and healthy, by social distancing and washing your hands frequently.
Please wash your child's masks each week.

Consider connecting with our school counselor
Mrs. Spain works with students on an individual basis for short-term counseling/student strategy sessions for finding solutions. If long-term counseling is more appropriate, requests for school-based community counseling can be made to serve the identified student needs. Parents are always welcome to consult with Mrs. Spain about counseling and student support services available to students and families.
There is still time to order a yearbook.
