Dear Richmond Families,

 

At last night's School Committee meeting, one motion passed unanimously.

 

The intent of the motion is to provide support for in person learning and health and wellness.

Motion 1: 

"I move that based on guidance from the CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics, DESE, and the DPH that the Richmond School require masks for all students, staff, vendors and visitors in school regardless of vaccination status.  This approach may change over time based on shifting data and external additional guidance.  The superintendent will update the School Committee at each future meeting."

  

Obviously, there will be many reactions to this motion.  We will work to clarify the impact.

If you have questions or concerns, reach out to me.

 

Thanks and have a good day.

Peter Dillon, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
Richmond Consolidated School

RCS Testimonials

 

I am a parent of 4 children at Richmond Consolidated School. We have been privileged to be a part of this school system for 8 years, and there is no school in the Berkshires that compares! Our family travels internationally, and has been exposed to the finest educational systems, and we have chosen to be at Richmond. The curriculum is diverse and differentiated, with a qualified support staff to meet the needs of all students. Our school teaches the whole child with a uniquely rich arts program and cross-curricular teaching. This is THE school in the Berkshires. — RCS parent

 

Richmond Consolidated School is positively exceptional: small classes, great teachers,rigorous academic programs that foster critical thinking as well as creative development, and a strong commitment to the arts and foreign languages. In fact, kids start Spanish in kindergarten. — RCS parent

We are so lucky to have found RCS. It is a hidden treasure in Berkshire County. Our two children entered this year as buds, now, blossoming. The food is excellent, local and fresh. The art is innovative and creative. The children have a sense of security and respect at RCS. It is a beautiful path for children, preparing them for another. We are above the moon over this school and all that it has to offer. — RCS parent

 

Richmond school is one of the best in the Berkshires. It's like having a private school education but without the cost. The principal in incredible and the sense of community is great. There is a strong focus on the arts and music that can't be found at any other local public school in the area. The food program is also one of the best often using locally grown or from their own garden produce. I strongly recommend Richmond to anyone looking for a great small school in the Berkshires. — RCS parent

 

My school is outstanding in every way: English, math, science, social studies, art, music, physical education/health, theater. This small school has a huge heart & offers a great education in a warm atmosphere. — RCS teacher

 

Richmond school is as good as any private institution one could send their children to. The teachers take great interest in their work and my kids love the school. My children have developed well there with caring faculty and great programs. I couldn't be happier. — RCS parent
