COVID closures don’t stop us from recognizing our great population of students at TMS!
Recipients of our Quarter 1 TOPS (Tuckahoe Observable Profiles) Awards were recently recognized virtually. Congratulations to these Patriots for earning honors in our first virtual school year!
Each quarter, teachers nominate one student–from every grade level they teach–who exemplifies traits in the International Baccalaureate. Examples of these traits are in being Principled, Knowledgeable, Open-Minded, Balanced, etc.
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
Henrico, Va., Nov. 19, 2020 — Input and information sessions on three HCPS school attendance boundary “priority areas” have concluded, with one proposal put on hold and the School Board seeking further input on the other two. An update on the proposals, commonly referred to as “redistricting”:
- At the Nov. 12 School Board meeting, members decided to postpone the proposal related to the way students are assigned to Quioccasin Middle School. It will be revisited for further public discussion in fall 2021.
- The Board is still seeking public input on two other proposals:
- Provide written comments anytime by using the General Feedback Form on the HCPS redistricting webpage: https://henricoschools.us/redistricting/
- Submit written public comments specifically for the Dec. 10 School Board meeting by going to the School Board’s page: https://henricoschools.us/school-board/ (Please note that the public comments form is different than the “General Feedback Form” on the redistricting page, but all comments are carefully reviewed and considered.)
- The Board will hold a Jan. 14 public hearing on the redistricting proposals for the two priority areas. Depending on the status of the pandemic, the public hearing may be virtual.
- Jan. 29 (tentative): Possible School Board vote on redistricting changes.
- The three information and input sessions have concluded, but you can view videos of the sessions at https://henricoschools.us/redistricting/.
The two ongoing proposals for implementation in fall 2021 are:
Effectively using additional capacity at Holladay Elementary School
This proposal would move some preschool students at other schools to Holladay Elementary School, which will double its capacity when a current construction project is completed. The moves would free up instructional space at Crestview, Dumbarton, Johnson, Lakeside, Longan and Echo Lake elementary schools.
Addressing overcapacity at Colonial Trail and Rivers Edge elementary schools
This proposal would address overcapacity at Colonial Trail and Rivers Edge by moving some students to other schools. Besides Colonial Trail and Rivers Edge, other schools that may be affected are Kaechele, Longan, Springfield Park, Twin Hickory and Echo Lake elementary schools.
A third proposal, for elementary feeder patterns into Quioccasin Middle School has been postponed and will be revisited in fall 2021. This proposal would realign the feeder patterns for Quioccasin Middle School, reducing from three to two the number of high schools that Quioccasin students attend. It would also reduce the number of middle schools that feed J.R. Tucker High School from five to four. Under the proposal, students at MaybeuryElementary School would attend Quioccasin Middle School instead of Tuckahoe Middle School. Students at Skipwith Elementary School, and Jackson Davis Elementary School students who live north of Three Chopt Road would attend Tuckahoe Middle School instead of Quioccasin. Colonial Trail Elementary School students who live in the Trails at Short Pump and the Crossings at Short Pump would attend Pocahontas Middle School and Mills Godwin High School instead of Quioccasin Middle School and J.R. Tucker High School.

A 2019-20 comprehensive countywide redistricting process had been scheduled to be phased in beginning this year. The School Board announced in April that it would delay that process to allow the community to focus on the public health crisis. In September, the Board announced that it would discontinue the comprehensive process and focus instead on solutions for the three specific areas of concern described above.
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.”
