Richmond School Closed until
March 27, 2020.

Good afternoon families, this is an important message from the School District of Philadelphia. All schools will be closed starting Monday, March 16, 2020, through Friday, March 27, 2020. Containment efforts in surrounding counties have resulted in significant staffing challenges for our schools, making this closure necessary to support student and staff safety. A letter with more information is available in the alert at the top of your school website and on Thank you for your flexibility and understanding during this difficult time. Please stay safe.

The vision of the Richmond Elementary School is to ensure that all students achieve academic excellence by engaging in the best instructional practices.

PSSA in on the Way!

Students in 3rd-5th are be preparing in class and may work at home by visiting websites that help them with grade-appropriate skills.    Kids can choose specific skills (literacy and math) to work on and get 10 free questions a day!  Kids can read passages of their choice and answer questions. This is great if you are not whether your home library is on grade-level.
