Room Parent Guidelines at Davis & Richmond

  • No more than 2 parents per classroom. Sign-up for room parents is through our PTO.

  • Present proof of full vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 test result from within the last 72 hours

  • Wear a proper mask at all times when inside

  • Complete the D303 volunteer form

  • Work with the classroom teacher on activities/games for the party.

  • No food will be eaten at the party but students may take home goodie bags.

  • It would be a good idea to come into the building earlier in the week to provide your volunteer form, ID, and proof of vaccination card. Otherwise, there will be a line of parents waiting to enter the building.

Thank you!

Lost and Found

There are many unclaimed and unnamed coats, water bottles, winter gear, masks, and MORE in the lost and found at Davis. The lost and found is located in the lunchroom at Davis, so your child may check everyday for items. Please review with your child if there is anything missing that he/she should look for in the lost and found and send an email to the teacher or office if your child does not find it.

Breakout EDU

Our second graders have been using their problem solving skills and social studies knowledge from their Needs and Wants unit to have fun with Breakout EDU! Students solved puzzles to crack codes, open locks, and work as a team to open the breakout EDU box. The students had a blast with Mrs. Bradley in the LRC!

Visiting Richmond? Dropping something off? We ask that ALL visitors/parents wear a mask when on school grounds - this includes our main vestibule.

Checking ID

If you come to Richmond to check out your student early, you will be asked for ID, so please bring it with you when you come.


Just a reminder that we do not accept fast food for students during their lunch. Please send lunch with students in the morning. If a child forgot their lunch, they can order school lunch or we will accept their lunch box with a lunch in it.
