In January, Henrico Schools will make adjustments to curbside meal service

Distribution at 12 schools will be consolidated with nearby sites

Henrico, Va. Dec. 16, 2020 — Henrico County Public Schools will consolidate curbside meals distribution at 12 schools with lower participation rates and merge service at those facilities with nearby schools, effective Monday, Jan. 4.

Each of the discontinued sites is three miles or less from an alternate site with curbside meal service. Families aren’t limited by these sites, however, and can choose to pick up school meals at any other HCPS school. The last day for curbside pickup service at the 12 sites will be Thursday, Dec. 17. Neighborhood meals distribution at bus-stop sites will continue unchanged. A list of alternative sites is below:

HCPS’ School Nutrition Services Department has answered the challenge of a highly unusual school year by distributing free breakfasts and lunches to students using a two-pronged system — free curbside pick-up service at HCPS schools, and teaming with HCPS Pupil Transportation Services to distribute free meals directly to 61 stops in Henrico County neighborhoods, using school buses. See an online map of school and bus stop distribution sites by going to https://tinyurl.com/HCPSMealsSites.

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.
