Staff Report

Thursday, May 26th, 2022

Richmond County School System Superintendent, Dr. Kenneth Bradshaw, sent the following message to school system families in response to the tragic school shooting that occurred yesterday at Robb Elementary School.

Dear Richmond County School System Families,

Like you, we are deeply saddened by the news of Tuesday's shooting at Robb Elementary School in Texas. Please join us in keeping the students, staff and families of the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District in your thoughts during this time.

School should and must be a place where students feel safe and secure. Though our schools dismissed students for summer break yesterday, school safety is always our highest priority. Our School Safety and Security Officers work and train year round on school safety plans and have a strong partnership with the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office to provide additional support when such needs arise.

If you or your child have any safety concerns about our schools, please report them to the school office or by calling our 24/7 TipLine that is always available to receive information at 706-828-1077.

The National Association of School Psychologists has information that may help you answer your child’s questions and support them as they process the news about this tragic event. 

Thank you for supporting our school system.


Dr. Kenneth Bradshaw
