Pandemic Preparation Information

Due to the COVID-19 Crisis, our school administration has developed a flexible school plan to deal with the different scenarios that may face us during the school year.  Virginia and CDC recommendations are being followed with social distancing  and screening measures in place. The plan was approved by the Virginia Department of Health. Our first priority is the safety of the students and staff of the school. 

Two Awesome CFR Students

If school needs to close again in the fall, C.F. Richards is prepared to provide quality distance learning to the students in grades K-8. Families will also have the option of continuing to have their student continue learning from home while the school is open if the need arises.
