The HCPS Health Committee meets regularly to consider current pandemic conditions and trends in the Richmond region and in Virginia. It is made up of 16 individuals from the Henrico Health District, the HCPS administration, the HCPS Student Health Advisory Board and the community. The committee provides updates and makes recommendations to the School Board and HCPS administrators. HCPS reviews and considers these recommendations (along with additional factors including federal, state and local guidance, as well as additional community feedback) to help determine and implement the safest possible conditions for in-person learning for students, employees and the community.
HCPS is planning for a return to five days a week of in-person learning in the 2021-22 school year. Visit our “Back to School” page for additional details.
Below you will find the most recent public presentation materials from the HCPS Health Committee, as well as meeting notes/minutes dating back to 2020.
