Henrico, Va., Oct. 16, 2020 — Henrico County Public Schools families, staff members and community members will have an opportunity to voice their thoughts about the school division’s second nine weeks at a “Listening Town Hall” to be held virtually this Tuesday from 6-8 p.m. The input session will be attended by Kristi Kinsella, Brookland District School Board representative, and Marcie Shea, Tuckahoe District School Board representative, who will listen to constituent input on behalf of the Board.

The School Board will get a recommendation Oct. 22 from the HCPS Health Committee on an instructional approach for the second nine weeks of school, which begins Nov. 16. The Listening Town Hall is an opportunity to voice comments and input before a vote takes place.

The event is designed to gather input from community members and staff members. No new material will be presented at the session and Board members will not be accepting questions.

There will also be a chance to provide input by submitting online comments, and at a public comment period to be held Oct. 22 at New Bridge Learning Center auditorium at 5915 Nine Mile Road in eastern Henrico. More information about those opportunities will be available this afternoon at the School Board’s webpage, at https://henricoschools.us/school-board/.
