Distance Learning

Parents/Guardians, 3/12/2020


Henrico County Public Schools is committed to providing engaging learning experiences for students during a district closing.  As a result, The Department of Teaching, Learning, and Innovation has created a Distance Learning Plan to ensure the continuation of learning experiences at home.


We have highlighted our plan below so that families can understand and support learning at home during our time out of school.  Below you will find information around our strategies for supporting your child while at home.


Who:  Students in grades kindergarten through 5th grade will participate in Distance Learning Plans that include a wide variety of “at home” learning experiences.


Why:  Distance Learning Plans expand students’ ongoing instructional time during a divisional school closing.


What:  Distance Learning Plans provide opportunities for students to replicate learning experiences that would happen if the students were in school. 

  • Performance Task (Supports the Henrico Learner Profile and targeted Standards of Learning)
  • Core Content Choice Board  of Activities (Various levels or rigor, student chosen experiences)
  • Math Connections (Targeted numeracy experiences)
  • Reading Connections (Targeted reading and writing experiences)
  • CLEVER Connections (Optional online at home access)
  • Digital Library Resources (Optional online at home access)
  • Reading Resources (Optional online at home access)
  • Digital Copy of Parent Literacy Resource Document (printed version included in student packet)


How:  Students will work on the various activities at a pace and time that works best for your family.  We do ask upon returning to school that your child bring back the following:

  • Performance Task Project (Participation grade and for feedback)
  • Choice Board Document (Participation grade and for feedback)


In an effort to better guide your support at home, our department has created a Distance Learning website.  This site will connect you to our KG-5 teacher guides and student resources for instruction at home. This link can be found below.


We appreciate your support in ensuring that instruction continues at home during our time away from school.
