RICHMOND INTERMEDIATE NEWS
Please use our drive-up lane to drop your child off in the morning. Do not park on the west side of 12th street and have your child walk across the street. This is dangerous because cars are driving through in both directions. As an alternative to the drive-up lane, you are also welcome to park in a spot along the east side of 12th street (same side as the school), Oak or Indiana. This will help us keep all of our Richmond children safe during morning drop off. We greatly appreciate your help with this.
A friendly reminder there morning supervision does not begin until 7:40 a.m. Please do not arrive to school earlier than 7:40 a.m.
Thank you to all of our families who could make curriculum night. We had a great turn-out. If you were unable to attend, please reach out to your child’s teacher. We had presentations in each classroom and we would be happy to share them.
