During the COVID-19 outbreak, The Richardson School (TRS) – a MyPath Company – continues to support its day school students via virtual and distant learning opportunities.  We’re here for those we serve, and for each other.  Here’s how we’re working together amid the challenges of COVID-19: 

  • Our school settings are closed to the public and visitors. Only essential personnel of TRS or essential vendors may enter our facilities.
  • Our facilities are following CDC guidelines relative to social interaction as well as personal and environmental hygiene, and we are consistently monitoring client and staff health.
  • Our teachers are providing virtual and distant learning options to our enrolled students.  Families are being provided with multiple interactive, live and individually prepared curriculum options to support each student’s continuing education.
  • TRS personnel not actively engaged in virtual learning options are offered continuing work opportunities in other MyPath Company settings.

TRS continues to accept inquiries related to our school and its services.  To contact an admissions representative, please use the Contact Us link at the top of the page.
