Secondary Structures Survey – our District would like feedback from students, parents and staff about the models we have used for our student timetable (quarter, semester, linear, hybrid).  In addition, what are your thoughts about PLT?  Please note that these are two independent questions.  PLT could be part of any model.  A link to the student survey is on our website as part of the WAAG.  We’ve also posted a QR code around the school which will take you right to the survey.  Make your thoughts known.  You have until this Friday, March 4th.

Happy SPECIAL Birthday to Ms. Samra, our Day Custodian. She does an amazing job keeping our school clean and safe! Thank you to her temporary partner, Ms. Pannu, who has helped with additional cleaning during the day as part of the extra Covid safety measures. Today is her last day at McMath.

Big GOODBYE to Ms. Goulas, our amazing Vice Principal for the last 8 and a bit years. She has been a huge part of this place with her friendly, caring approach. We’ll miss her! Richmond Secondary School is definitely fortunate to have her with them starting March 1st

The office will be closed during lunch today.

If you have submitted a parking pass application to the office but haven’t received your parking pass, please see Ms. Goulas today.
