Monday, 2 pm: Moments ago, Gov. Ralph Northam announced that all public schools in Virginia would be CLOSED FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE SCHOOL YEAR in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus and COVID-19. Like you, I am stunned and saddened to be seeing those words become a reality. However, Henrico County Public Schools fully supports all that is necessary to ensure the long-term health and safety of our community.

A decision of this magnitude creates an entire universe of new questions that we will begin to answer for you. We will be updating any previously communicated information and guidance, and we promise to stay in touch as all of the information that’s important to you becomes more clear. For now, we felt it was important to pass along today’s major announcement as soon as we found out.

Updates will continue to be posted to our COVID-19 page:

Thank you for reading, and please know that the Henrico County Public Schools team will be here with you every step of the way. We will continue to get through this together.



Amy E. Cashwell, Ed.D.
