Broad Rock Parent and Community Newsletter August 8, 2020
Dear Broad Rock Family,
Virginia's three-day tax free weekend started yesterday and runs through Sunday. Families can buy qualifying school supplies, clothing and foot wear tax free. This year our school supply list will look a little different. There is a virtual school supply list for the first semester as well as an in person school supply list for the second semester.
Additionally, each RPS student will receive a #ReopenWithLove Kit that will include all the supplies and subject specific materials they will need to start our virtual school year. The goal is to make sure each student receives their kit prior to the start of the year but we recognize that there might be shipping delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic and an increased demand for these items. We will keep you updated on when you can expect kits to be available.
Please click 2020-21 school supply list and details about the #ReopenWithLove Kit below.
Stay safe and healthy!
