Principal's Welcome Letter

Dear Parents, Guardians, Staff and Students,


          Welcome to Rio Linda Preparatory Academy!  I am excited to be a part of this school community.

          As I begin my first year as Principal of Rio Linda Preparatory Academy, I am deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your children.  We will accomplish this by setting high academic standards for all children and provide a supportive system to assure students reach the expectations.  Focusing on school culture, setting high expectations for all students, setting high standards for teacher performance and engaging the community, it is our goal to set the stage for students to be college or career ready and contributing members of society.

          I am pleased to share some of the outstanding programs at RLPA.  A variety of academic offerings including Project Lead the Way, MESA, AVID, Choir, and Leadership.

          We invite you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering, joining our PTA, or attending and supporting school events.  Research has shown that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child's education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child.

          Communication is also a key to a successful educational experience.  Together, we will continue to improve the quality of our school community and provide the best for the children of RLPA.  Education is a partnership between the school, parents/guardians, students, and community.  All children are more successful when we work as a team to achieve educational goals.

          I hope your visit to our website will give you a quick glimpse of life at RLPA.  Please explore our links to find out more about curriculum, programs, and daily events.

          I look forward to meeting you all this school year and getting to know your children.


Thank You,


Cindy Harrison

Nov. 16 Message from Superintendent Dr. Steven Martinez


Our school community is the latest to be stunned by gun violence which struck two Grant Union High School students last Friday, taking the life of an innocent, promising and beloved student and injuring another. Words cannot adequately express the shock and deep sadness caused by this tragic incident, and I ask you to hold the family in your heart and prayers.


On Friday afternoon, five varsity football players were returning to campus after getting something to eat. At the intersection of Silver Eagle Road and Mabel Street, multiple shots were fired at their vehicle. The students, seeking safety, drove to Grant. Staff responded immediately and secured emergency services for the injured students.


In the face of shock and tragedy, your colleagues focused on caring for our students, and I know you join me in thanking them for their compassion and quick actions.


Support services are being provided for the students and staff at Grant, as needed. Additionally, we have heightened police presence at the school throughout the week. As always, we remain committed to providing safe schools.


Please keep the families in your heart, and continue to support the students and staff at Grant as they face the pain from this devastating loss.


If you have any information, please contact the Sacramento Police Department, as they are conducting the investigation.

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.
