Richards Covid-19 Public Notifications

Richards Patrons:

In an effort to keep our Richards Family informed, we have created a Coronavirus Updates tab located on the Richards homepage of our website:

Please reference this site for all updates regarding identified positive cases.

In an effort to keep our community informed during the 2020-21 school year, the number of all reported cases involving Richards students and staff will be included here, even if there was no risk of exposure on district property or during a district event.

The number of new weekly cases reported on the dashboard is reflective of Richards students and staff only. Not all positive cases include the potential for exposure in Richards school or during a Richards event. Public notification occurs when a potential risk for exposure has been identified in the school setting or during a school event.

This dashboard will be updated weekly and will not include personally identifiable information.

Melonie Bunn, Ed.D.
