Thank you for taking the time to ask your student to keep up with their homework and getting their work back to their teachers in a timely manner.  Teachers may be contacting you if they need to conference with you about your child’s academic progress.  If you would like to conference with your child’s teacher, please call to schedule an appointment with the teacher.  Parent/Teacher Conferences are scheduled for March 16-17 and March 19-20.

School Wide Kendama Ban


Due to an over abundance of issues related to kendamas being on campus, starting Monday October 28, 2013, kendamas will not be allowed on campus at Rio Linda Preparatory Academy. Students should keep their kendamas at home or risk them being confiscated by school staff. Unfortunately, the rise of problems such as theft, students/staff being hit by kendamas, and class distractions have alleviated to the point that a school wide ban has become necessary at RLPA. Any questions or concerns should be directed to school staff or administration.
