RDES Update

Achieving Together ... ONE Family

Notes from Mrs. Hyatt

Dear Richmond Drive Families,

The month of June has arrived. Only a few weeks of learning left for this 2020-21 school year. We will all continue to work hard and learn lots as we come to school each day.

Thank you to all students in grades 3-5 for their patience this past week as we began SC READY testing. Technology is not always on our sides, but with support from the Rock Hill Schools IT department, the district was able to work through the issues. Thank you students and families.

SC READY (reading) will take place this week beginning Wednesday, June 2. Face to face 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students will test on Wednesday. (Virtual students will test as follows: 3rd grade on Wednesday, 4th grade on Thursday, and 5th grade on Friday at Richmond Drive) Check out all of the details below.

Four year old kindergarten will return to Richmond Drive next year. If you know someone who has a child that will turn 4 by September 1, 2021, share the news. Enrollment is found on the Rock Hill Schools web site. https://www.rock-hill.k12.sc.us/Page/8308

Free Breakfast and lunch are served everyday at Richmond Drive for all students. Students need to arrive no later than 7:40 to pick up breakfast.

Thank you for supporting our students and staff!

With much appreciation,

Janice Hyatt
