Dear #RPS Strong Family,
I'm reaching out with this special RPS Direct to share that two RPS employees have tested positive for COVID-19.
One of the employees is a staff member at Fox Elementary School and was at the school on 9-3. The other is a staff member at Henderson Middle School and was at the school daily until 9-15. Both are now in quarantine, per CDC guidelines.
At the direction of the Richmond City Health Department (RCHD), we encourage anyone who was present at Fox Elementary School or Henderson Middle School on the dates listed above to monitor their symptoms and reach out to their primary care provider if they have any concerns. Individuals can also contact RCHD’s COVID-19 hotline at (804) 205-3501.
In addition, per RCHD protocol, contact tracers will reach out to anyone who likely had significant exposure to these staff members (within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes).
Our number one priority remains the health and safety of our students, staff, and families. We will continue to work in close collaboration with the Richmond City Health District to ensure the well-being of the entire RPS community.
If you have any questions, as always, please don't hesitate to contact me.
