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.

One hundred days. One hundred yays.
That’s how Henrico County Public Schools (HCPS) will recognize the special, day-to-day contributions of school division employees at every level.
Anyone can nominate an HCPS employee by completing an online form.
Starting in December, HCPS employees will be recognized on weekdays as recipients of the school division’s “Yay of the Day” honor.
“Recognizing our employees and celebrating good work are moments we need to make happen more often,” said Amy Cashwell, HCPS Superintendent. “Our more than 7,000 staff members do amazing things each and every day. This will be one small way to shine a light on their hard work and dedication.”
If you want your child to attend a school outside of your assigned school zone next year, you must apply to Henrico County Public Schools (HCPS) for a variance. (This does not apply to students who have been accepted into HCPS Specialty Centers or special education programs.)
HCPS Variance Request Deadlines:
- February 15, 2021: Students in Grades 5-11
- March 15, 2021: Students in Grades 1-7
