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!





Picture Days are here.  Dear Elementary and Richmond Middle School will have their pictures taken on Tuesday, August 25.  Sunrise Elementary will have pictures taken on Friday, August 28.  RHS already had their pictures taken at registration time, and retakes were August 20th.

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.

Emergency Drill Procedures / Safety in our Schools are a topic for each building this week.  Drills are practiced regularly.  This is a great time to go over your home emergency procedures and help reinforce our classroom discussions.
