We will post a list of acceptable birthday treats once the school nurse has finished checking the classrooms for allergies.

This past spring I notified the community that Richland would be testing our water for lead in both schools. The bill signed into law by Governor Rauner on January 16, 2017, mandated all schools constructed prior to 1987 must conduct sample testing on water by December 31, 2017. To assure the safety of our students and staff we conducted testing on all water sources used for drinking and cooking throughout the entire campus. These tests were, professionally administered, using the mandated two flush system. First flush water must sit between 8-18 hours before taking the sample. Second flush, sample taken after water ran for 30 seconds after first sample. The samples were sent to an IDPH (Illinois Department of Public Health) accredited lab for analysis. Results from the tests came back the second week of June.
