Distance Learning Plans

Who:  Students in grades kindergarten through 5th grade will participate in Distance Learning Plans that include a wide variety of “at home” learning experiences.

Why:  Distance Learning Plans expand students’ ongoing instructional time during a divisional school closing.

What:  Distance learning plans will provide opportunities for students to replicate learning experiences that would happen if the students were in school.   These activities were grouped together for KG-1, 2nd-3rd, and 4th-5th grades to ensure a wide spectrum of rigor.  Below you will find what comprises the distance learning plan.

  • Performance Task (Supports the Henrico Learner Profile and targeted Standards of Learning)

COVID-19: An important announcement

Concern about COVID-19 (coronavirus) has created a rapidly evolving environment where changes are being made quickly in the interest of public health.

Starting Monday, March 16, Henrico County Public Schools will be closed for students for two full weeks of school (through Friday, March 27). We will continue to assess the situation, and decide later if we need to extend this period of closure.

We realize this creates many questions about how students will continue their learning. We have a thorough plan in place, and detailed information about student learning will be communicated in a separate message.

Our teachers and staff will use Monday, March 16, to continue their preparations. “Virtual learning” experiences (digital and non-digital) will be available to students of all grade levels starting on Tuesday, March 17.

During this unprecedented experience, we will continue to do everything possible to ensure the health and safety of our community. The HCPS Facilities and Pupil Transportation departments will conduct additional cleaning of school buildings and buses, and continue to assess the best cleaning practices.

Additionally, for many of our students, the meals provided at our schools are a crucial part of their daily nutrition. Additional plans are being made to address this vital need across the Henrico Community.

Please know that this is not a decision that we make lightly. We realize that any change to educational schedules is disruptive and inconvenient. However, our priority must always be the health and safety of our students, staff members and community.

Again, more details about student learning will be forthcoming in separate communications. Visit the “COVID-19” page on our website for full information from HCPS.
