COVID Response Plan

COVID Response Plan – Presented on August 31, 2021

Greenwood and Henrico County Public Schools are committed to providing in-person learning opportunities for all students this school year. This opportunity will be available based upon the current health and safety conditions as defined by our health committee, and the guidance provided by the Virginia Department of Education.  This document serves as planning and implementation for our face to face instruction for the 21-22 school year.

HCPS & GES are committed to five days a week of full length in-person learning in a safe and healthy school environment. Based on current health data and trends, along with the latest guidance from health experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Virginia Department of Healththe Henrico County School Board voted unanimously to open the 2021-22 school year with a mask requirement inside schools and offices for all individuals (employees, students, etc.), regardless of vaccination status. Mask use also remains required on school buses due to a federal order.

Moving forward, masking protocols will be reviewed approximately every two weeks at the School Board’s public meetings (view the upcoming School Board meeting dates here.)

Please note, this document will be updated throughout the school year to reflect the most up to date guidance that has been provided by HCPS.
