Richland Elementary School

Home of the Redhawks! We at Richland Elementary School believe...

-Students should be encouraged to set goals for themselves and work toward reaching them.

-Students should be in a safe and secure environment where opportunities are provided for all.

-Teachers should teach and model good character traits and students should be treated with dignity and respect.

-Our students must be actively engaged in their educations in order to learn, produce quality work, and become critical thinkers and problem solvers.

-A wide variety of research based teaching strategies and data driven assessment techniques accommodate a diverse population with multiple learning styles, and provide challenges that are conducive to an academic achievement.

-Collaboration among teachers, administrators, parents, and the community is essential for the continuous growth and effectiveness of our school.

Shelby County Schools announced plans to offer routine COVID-19 testing to all students and employees for the upcoming academic school year. The program will make testing available on-campus at each school on a bi-weekly basis. The testing program, called Test to Protect Our Schools, is free for students and staff. The program provides an additional tool to ensure the health and safety of faculty and students in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our First Testing day will be on August 20 from 12:00-3:00. Testing is optional, but participation is encouraged. Parents and guardians can sign up now to consent for their child(ren) to participate in the program or download a consent form and return it to their child's school. Unlike earlier versions of the test with a deep swab, this version consists of a quick swipe of the outer nostril. Results are ready within 24 hours.

Sign up to consent for your child to participate in the testing.

-OR-

Download and print a consent form to drop off at your child’s school. English / Spanish
