Welcome and Thank You

Welcome Back!  
We are excited to begin the new school year and provide excellent educational opportunities to the students of the district.  We also want to thank the district patrons for their positive impact on the school district by passing the recent tax levy!  The funding will help continue the improvements in our schools, attract and retain teachers and has already brought a positive outlook to the entire Richmond R-XVI community.
Thank you for your support!





Early Release for all schools will continue on Wednesdays as in past years.  April will be different, in that the Early Releases will not happen.  This is to ensure that our State Assessments are not interrupted.  Please check the calendar for your building events.

Richmond PTO is planning to have a few meetings at Dear Elementary.  All parents and teachers are invited to attend.  They begin at 6:30 PM on September 21st.

Safe and Secure Schools Project

The Midwest Digital Systems crew has been busy with the installation of various security features in each of the school buildings.  Cameras and software will soon be operational.  Installation of the new doors for the high school and middle school is also proceeding.  Thank you to the Richmond R-XVI voters to help bring these improvements to our security systems. 

NWEA MAP Test Window

Students in grades 2-8 will be taking the NWEA MAP assessment this fall.  The NWEA MAP is a computer adaptive test which will provide normed scores for both reading and math.  The test window has been set for Sept 10 through Sept. 21.
