Davis Richmond E-news

May 25, 2022

Dear Parents,

Summer vacation officially begins today for our students and families. Report cards will be available in Home Access Center on June 2nd after 9 a.m.

The staff of Davis Richmond wishes you a safe and happy summer, one filled with continued learning through reading, wondering, exploring, and writing. Take time to read daily and to enjoy leisurely conversation afforded us by long summer nights.

Enjoy your additional family time! We look forward to seeing you again on Wednesday, August 10th. We will have a school supply drop off event planned for Tuesday, August 9th from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. at Davis and Richmond. Here you can drop off school supplies, confirm how your child will get to and from school and meet your child’s teacher.

This is our last edition of the e-news for this year. We will start up again at the end of July. If you have any questions over the summer, our offices are open.
