Notes from Mrs. Hyatt

Dear Richmond Drive Families,

Spring is in the air! The weather today felt like spring may be a little closer. Please write your child's name on the tag inside jackets. This is the time of year coats are left around the school and finding the owner is difficult at times.

Earlier this week you received information about the RDES PTO coupon book fundraiser. Monday students in the face to face setting will have one coupon book sent home to sell and you may sell using the on line platform. Those of you in the virtual setting may sign up and sell using the online platform. There are many great coupons that are valid in our area. Thank you all in advance for supporting the Richmond Drive PTO.

What an amazing staff we have at RDES. Each week as Mrs. Owens and I visit classes we see exciting lessons with student highly engaged. We try to take pictures and share in the newsletter, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Those of you in the virtual world, we would love to see your children in action too! Please send pictures of them involved in their school work so we can share.

With much appreciation,

Janice Hyatt


Please stay safe and healthy, by social distancing and washing your hands frequently.

Please wash your child's masks each week.


Morning Drop Off Safety

For the safety of our children, please pull forward to drop off each morning. This will allow three families to drop off at the same time under the awning.

Thank you,

The morning staff
