February 21st – February 25th was Texas Severe Weather Awareness Week. Severe weather may strike with only a few minutes of advance warning. Richland Springs School participated in the National Weather Service’s tornado warning drill for schools on February 24. Emergency preparedness for tornadoes is part of our district’s Emergency Operations Plan. Students also participated in a fire drill on Thursday as a wind-blown grass fire burned a portion of the football practice field and the highway right-of-way adjacent to the school. Your child’s safety is our #1 concern.
Cheerleader tryouts will be held March 11. March 11 is the Friday before Spring Break. Spring Break will be March 14 - March 18.
Attendance is important! Encourage your child to be at school every day. The elementary students in Accelerated Reading (AR) were recently rewarded with an ice cream party for meeting their goals. Junior high and high school students who exceeded their reading goals were treated to a meal. READERS ARE LEADERS!
We have a great community, students, teachers and staff. It looks to be a great year at Richland Springs.
Community involvement is the key to our success!
