It is with great sadness that we have learned of the tragic loss of one of our students. Riley Morris, a student in 7th grade, passed away this week. Riley was part of our Bear family and was special to us. Our thoughts and prayers remain with Riley’s family. Members of the Richland Community Churches, along with school counselors, are available to help students and staff deal with their feelings and emotions. Contact a local church or the school’s office for more information. Please realize that reactions can be varied and can depend upon such factors as age, personality, and previous losses. Any changes in your child’s behavior related to this tragedy, should be brought to the attention of the school counselors.

Now that it looks like we are through the worst of the weather issues, I wanted to update everyone. Since we submitted a calendar with the necessary hours built in, we will not have to make up the snow days. However, we did take two COVID break days after Thanksgiving that will have to be made up. With travel plans already made for some of you, I didn’t want to take away spring break days. We will need to add two days to the end of the school year on May 24 & 25. Hopefully this is a situation we will not have to deal with in the future. Once again I thank you for your patience and understanding during the pandemic.

We have tried to keep as many students on campus as possible, but the positive cases and quarantine numbers amongst high school students continue to climb. Because of this, we will have high school students only go to virtual learning starting tomorrow, February 4, through Friday, February 12. Monday, February 15 is a day off, so in person classes for high school will resume on Tuesday, February 16. We feel that our students are better off at school, so we plan to keep the elementary and junior high school students here at this time since their numbers are so much better. Students who need a device to work on at home are being issued one. We have established a meal option for students who will be out and further information will be sent out regarding that. Please try to be as safe as possible at home, especially if you are quarantined or a positive case. We are making this change to try to get through this tough period and hope it will help stem the tide. Masks, social distancing, frequent thorough hand washing, and staying at home if quarantined, are all positive steps we can take to help in this situation. Also, please do not send any student to school if they have any of the COVID symptoms. Hopefully, this will get us out of the worst of things and thank you again for your patience and understanding throughout this pandemic.

To clarify, your student may be riding a different bus because of our combining some routes. We have contacted students about any permanent changes in bus assignments. Once again, if a Richland bus comes to your stop, please have your student get on, even if it is a different bus than normal.
12 months ago, Mr. Brian Lee
Mr. Brian Lee
We have had to quarantine two of our bus drivers and have had to change our routes somewhat. The Horse and Whale routes will be pretty much normal. If your child rides one of the other buses, please have them at their stop at least ten minutes early as we are unsure of what the effect the changes will have. The Sallytown / E Main portion of the routes will be about 15 minutes later. I believe the few students who are on a different route have been contacted, but if a Richland bus comes to your stop, please get on it and we will get your student to school. There will now be very little overlap where buses run in the same areas. Thank you again for your understanding and patience during all of this.

Mr. Brian Lee
We found out during the day today that we have a bus driver with a positive test result. We may have to quarantine up to two other drivers as we are still trying to determine contacts. We have arranged for substitute drivers this afternoon for anyone in question, which will also give us time to see where we are bus wise by Tuesday morning. (a reminder that Monday is a professional development day and we will not have students on campus) Your student's bus may have a substitute driver that doesn’t know the stops on the route. Because of this, we will have a vehicle driving in front of them to guide where the stops need to happen. We wanted you to know that we will get your students home safely and to not be worried about the vehicle stopping regularly in front of your bus. We did need to quarantine 8 students and their families have been notified already. Students sitting in the same seat every day will help cut down on that - so please help us let your child understand that. I would like to give a big thank you to everyone who helped us get through this situation and for your patience and understanding.

Mr. Brian Lee
We are about to have numerous students return to school after their quarantine period is over. If you had students who were quarantined, you should have been contacted to make sure the return date is correct. We have been working hard to make sure that we have the correct dates for everyone. This includes steps such as having to sometimes retrace through additional contacts as they become known. If your student is scheduled to return, please do not send them if they are showing any symptoms and have them report to the office before returning to class. If they were to end up being positive, that could restart the process all over again. Even if your student isn’t under quarantine, do not send them if they are sick. I apologize that this process is sometimes confusing and difficult to get through. We are working in concert with the health department and I want to give my appreciation to everyone involved in the process, from school employees to staff at the health department.

Starting tomorrow morning, breakfast and lunch will be free for all students at Richland, through the SSO program. This was the same program that provided meals during the COVID break last spring and into the summer. Any meal charges that have been made this week are being refunded to your students’ accounts. This program does not erase any previous outstanding balances in meal accounts, so please continue to pay those off. According to DESE, this program is scheduled to run through December, or until funding runs out - whichever occurs SOONER. Please understand that this may cause things to be much busier at the JH/HS at meal time, but we will work through the situation to make sure we get our students fed. Thanks again for your patience.

We are excited to see our students back in the classroom this Monday, August 24. As a reminder about the expectations this year, We ask that students wear masks on the bus; entering and leaving the building; in the hallways; and anywhere else that we cannot totally socially distance. It would be great if everyone wore masks throughout the school day as they have been shown to reduce the risk of the virus spreading. We are also trying to cut down on visitors to the bare minimum as well and ask that they wear masks while on campus. If you need to drop off something for your student or to get them a message, the building office of your child’s school will be more than happy to help. One of the other vital moves you can make to keep everything as safe as possible is to keep your student at home if they have a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher or have other symptoms. I would like to personally thank everyone for being patient and understanding as we work together to deal with these circumstances beyond our control. Once again, please stay home if you are sick!

I wanted to share some information about our virtual learning option. Students who select this option will have a two week grace period to change their minds and come back to seated learning. After that time, students will be expected to stay in the virtual mode until at least the end of the quarter to complete the grading period. This will help us effectively plan and schedule. Virtual students will be expected to log in daily and will have the same assignment deadlines as seated students. They will also not be able to visit campus during the school day. In addition, students who choose virtual learning will not be able to participate in extracurricular activities while in that status. This will include athletics and any activities that are not a part of a student’s course grade.

This is not the case - there has been no change on that front. We appreciate the thought of helping out and thank Better Lives Today for all that they have done (and continue to do) for our students and staff in getting extras, providing supplies for students in need, etc. We are grateful for anyone who is willing to provide assistance for students and to help with special projects , etc. However, please know that we will continue to provide the basic necessities for school and also for any needs that arise due to the ever changing situation we find ourselves in.

Any Richland Junior High or High School athlete who will be in grades 6-12 and plans on participating in athletics for the 2020-21 school year will need a physical. This does not include those athletes who turned one in for the 2019-20 school year as MSHSAA is allowing physicals on a 2-year basis (730 days), unless it expires throughout the school year (ex. A physical that was received 3/2/19 is valid through 3/1/21). While the MSHSAA PPE Form is now valid for a two year period from the date of the physical examination, all other pre-participation documents must still be completed annually for every student athlete. These forms are available in the high school office or you can download and print on the MSHSAA website (MSHSAA.org) under Sports Medicine.

I would like to commend our staff for their work in meeting the needs of our students in the food delivery process and continuing to prepare for student education in this time of uncertainty. I would also like to give a big thank you to our parents for their work in coming to pick up the homework packets on Monday! I was amazed by the number of you that came to the school to pick them up. It made the delivery on Tuesday much smoother than I anticipated. Thanks again. I know that some area schools have suspended these services but it is my intention to continue to provide them as long as possible. We are still currently scheduled to be out until April 6. I would like to remain optimistic about that date but we will have to wait to see how the situation unfolds before then. We will continue to keep you informed of any updates in that area. State mandated testing has been suspended for the current school year. There has also been some forgiveness for students in areas such as the testing requirements to qualify for the A+ program. Please keep following the recommended guidelines- groups of 10 or less, use social distancing, and don’t go out unless you need to. Hopefully these measures will help cut down on the number of cases. Stay safe and we look forward to when things return back to normal and we can see the students again.

Mr. Brian Lee
Dear Richland R-IV Patrons, Due to the continued concerns of the COVID-19 virus, we will be out of school until April 6. We have made plans to provide educational content to your students during this time. The teachers will have lessons online and we will be sending packets home for students without internet access. (or who would prefer that method of delivery) There will be two methods of getting the packets. We will have a parent pickup on Monday, March 23 from 9:00 am until 6:00 at each building. The elementary access will be at the front door and at the junior/high school it will be in the back of the gym by the library. We will bring the work out to you so that no one has to enter the building. We do not want students to stress out about the work but we want to provide opportunities for them to work on skills they will need to use when we return. For those of you who cannot pick up the packets, we will run a bus to deliver them on Tuesday morning, March 24. The teachers will also have “office hours” from 9:00 am to noon daily where they can be reached for any assistance that is needed, That will vary and may consist of email, phone calls, or online messaging. All extracurricular activities will be suspended as long as we are out due to the virus concerns. We also ask that outside groups not use our facilities as we are trying to ensure we have the social distancing suggested by the CDC. We have also changed our food delivery process a bit. We will deliver on Thursday and Friday of this week as we have been doing the last two days. Starting next week, we will deliver food on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Two days worth of meals will be delivered on Monday and Wednesday. These meals are available to any child 18 or under. (or any current Richland student who is over 18) Please continue to spread word of this program by word of mouth so that everyone knows about it. Once again, I would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding through these difficult times. I have been very impressed and proud of our employees as they have worked hard to meet the needs of our students. We will continue to work together for what is best for our students and community and eventually things will return to normal. Sincerely, Brian Lee Superintendent Richland R-IV School

Starting tomorrow morning we will be distributing school meals, free of charge. Two meals will go out at the same time, starting at 9:00 and will be delivered to your student’s bus stop. You don’t need to be a bus rider to get a meal - that is how we will know where to deliver it. In addition, we will have a grab and go station at the back side of the gym in the elementary school, if that works better for you. Please be patient as we work this process out. We also have no idea how many children will want meals, but we will work that our as we go. To help in our planning, if you do not want meals for your children, you can email that to me at blee@richlandbears.us Thank you for your understanding as we work together though these circumstances.

March 15, 2020 Dear Richland Patrons, I know there has been a lot of discussion of students and staff returning from a cruise during spring break. We have been in contact with local health agencies and continue to monitor updates from the CDC and other resources several times a day. This includes a discussion earlier today with the Pulaski County Health Department - who does not recommend that we quarantine those people as they return. The cruise line took precautions against the spread of any Infectious diseases. The passengers have been monitored for any signs of sickness and will be as they leave the ship. While symptoms can take awhile to show up, the cruise in question did not come in contact with any of the level three threat areas. This information is consistent with the recommendations of other health agencies. These protocols call for quarantine of people who have traveled to Level Three Threat areas, as detailed by the CDC. Basically, they are countries in Asia and Europe. There are a couple of areas of concern in the United States - mainly in Washington state and New York. We continue to check for updates and stay in touch with local, regional, and national agencies as the situation. We are committed to making sure our students and staff are all a safe as possible but want to disrupt their education as little as possible as well. We also talk with other area schools to get their thoughts. Each school has to do what they feel is best for their district. If the situation changes or our contact agencies change their positions on the best practices, we will keep you informed. Sincerely, Brian Lee Superintendent Richland R-IV Schools
