HCPS closed for Students Tuesday, January 26, 2016

Henrico County Public Schools will be CLOSED on Tuesday, January 26, 2016. Employees: Code 2 (12-month employees report two hours late; all C&M employees report on time.)

 

As we have stated in the past, we ask that all 12-month employees exercise caution and take their time on the roads Tuesday morning. However, we also realize that some may not feel safe to drive. Please know that you are welcome to take annual leave if you prefer not to get on the roads.

 

Also, if you see a member of your school’s C&M team, please give him or her a pat on the back for the tremendous efforts being made to prepare approximately 70 school sites for the return of all employees and students. It’s an enormous job to clear all those parking lots, bus loops, sidewalks and walkways. We are hopeful that conditions will keep improving so that we may welcome back everyone as soon as possible.

 

For students preparing diligently for their midterm exams, no decision has yet been made to alter the schedule. If such a change becomes necessary, we will let you know.

Director, Communications & Public Relations
