Dear Rio Linda Preparatory Academy Families:


A Day to Remember: The STELLA Team visits RLPA



RLPA students, staff, families and community members had an opportunity on September 19 to see our friends from the University of Eindhoven in the Netherlands bring their award winning STELLA solar car for a visit to our school. Not only did our students get an opportunity to ride in the car, they also had a chance to speak with the college students who designed and built STELLA. Later the STELLA team worked with Project Lead the Way and 6th grade students in building their own smaller versions of the solar car. This event was covered by local media and a slide show of the visit can be viewed at our district website – Additional photos can be seen on our school website. Our thanks go to Ms. Glover who spearheaded the effort to bring STELLA to RLPA. Dr. Peter Van Deventer, a diplomat and clean energy advocate will make a return visit to RLPA in October to watch students race their mini solar cars.

Parent Teacher Communications:

Parents/Guardians have you contacted your child's teacher this month? Communication between you and the teacher is critical to your child's success. Inform teachers how they can communicate with you.  You can use School Loop, student agendas on a daily basis if needed, email, text, or the good old fashion phone call.  Please inform the office if you get a new phone number.  We need to be able to reach you in case of an emergency and when I send calls to all parents about school activities.

Superintendent's October 17 Letter to Staff

Many outside the district believe the past few days have taken a heavy toll on all of us, but that is clearly not the case. We are stronger as we continue to move as one to transform our district into a stellar learning organization. We will not be distracted.


On Wednesday, October 15, 2014, Board member Cortez Quinn pleaded no contest to a felony count of conspiracy to obstruct justice in a paternity case and two misdemeanors for illegally taking gifts and loans.


The Board of Trustees has yet to announce how it will fill Mr. Quinn’s seat. Trustees are examining legal options and obligations and will make a decision that is in the best interest of our students and community. The issue will most likely be addressed at the school board meeting on October 21, 2014. I want to assure you that we will keep you informed about the process and any decisions that are made. We will do so with complete openness and transparency.


At the end of the day, Twin Rivers Unified School District is all about students. Our mission is clear: To inspire each student to extraordinary achievement every day. Together we will ensure that Twin Rivers excels in every aspect of our mission as we move forward. 


We Are TR!  Thank you for putting students first.

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.
