RDES Update

Achieving Together ... ONE Family

A Message from Mrs. Hyatt

Parents and family members,

What an amazing week we all had at Richmond Drive. Although there were a few things to work out and find a better solution, the students and staff had a week full of learning and growing! Thank you all for your support each day.

Each week I will send out a message through email and text to keep you up to date on the great happenings at RDES.

We are posting signs that state "Masks are Highly Encouraged" as we notice cases of Covid and the variant on the rise. You, as a family, need to make the best choices for your family. If you have any questions, please contact our school nurse, Nurse Ellen McKinnon. She will assist you as much as she can.

Once again, we are blessed to have all of you here learning and growing at Richmond Drive.

Be sure to follow us on:

With much appreciation,

Janice Hyatt
