RDES Update

Achieving Together ... ONE Family

Notes from Mrs. Hyatt

Dear Richmond Drive Families,

What a beautiful weekend! I hope you had the opportunity to go outside and enjoy the sunshine.

Please remember consistent schedules at school and home are very important. As the days grow longer, we tend to stay up later in the evening and push bed times to a later time. Children in elementary school perform much better if they have 9-10 hours of sleep each night.

WOW! We are headed into the last nine week of school for the 2020-21 school year. Please remember it's important to come to school everyday with charged computers.

With much appreciation,

Janice Hyatt


Please stay safe and healthy, by social distancing and washing your hands frequently.

Please wash your child's masks each week.
