In Person and Online Student Registration for the 2020-21 School Year Now Available

In-Person Registration:  We are eager to support you with Kindergarten and new student registrations and other preparations for the upcoming school year, no matter what the school year ultimately looks like (those plans are still being made on a county level). For now, we want you to know that our school will have “in person” office hours from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Monday through Thursday beginning Monday, July 20.  For the purpose of ensuring the health and safety of all, we ask that you make an appointment to register a child for school (or to bring documents to complete a registration that was started online). Unfortunately, we will be unable to accept visits without an appointment.

If you are a family who is new to the country, please contact the ESL Welcome Center (804-527-4604 or tmdalmond@henrico.k12.va.us) to schedule your registration appointment.  We will assist you with the process using a translator to help complete the required documents.

As a reminder, HCPS employees as well as visitors to schools are expected to wear a mask or facial covering when entering the building. When you visit to register your child, it is important that you bring and wear a mask or facial covering.

As an additional safety and health measure, please visit without your child(ren), if possible. We will have additional opportunities for you and your child to see the school in late August and September.

Again, please contact us (804-364-0840) to make an appointment to register your child. Information about the registration process and needed forms and documentation can be found HERE.

Online Registration:  You can also register your kindergartner or new student using the new HCPS Online Registration portal.  (Desplazar el cursor hacia abajo para leer este mensaje en español.)

Child Find Information

Do you have questions or concerns about your child’s development? Do you believe that your child might benefit from special education? Don’t sit back and wait. Take time to ask about…  Child Find

Child Find is the process school divisions must use to locate, identify and evaluate children who need special education and related services. It is the first step in the process of determining if a child is eligible for special education. In Henrico County, it is the responsibility of Henrico Schools to help coordinate the Child Find process.

For children already in school:
If you suspect that your child may have a disability, contact your child’s teacher to discuss the possibility of a referral, or call the HCPS Office of Exceptional Education at 804-652-3801.

For children age 2-5 (must be 2 by Sept. 30):
If you suspect that your child may have a developmental delay, contact the Preschool Testing Team at 804-515-1146.

For children birth to age 3: 
Please contact the Early Intervention Programs, Infant and Toddler Connection of Henrico at 804-727-8372.

Henrico Schools using “Anonymous Alerts” system to improve communication about safety concerns

What is Anonymous Alerts?

The Anonymous Alerts safety and anti-bullying reporting system helps combat negative activity in schools by empowering students to speak up. Social and peer pressure are some of the hardest obstacles for students to overcome.

The system allows for one-way or two-way anonymous encrypted communication between those submitting reports (students, parents or community members) and school division administration and staff members. System users have the option to remain anonymous or reveal their identity when submitting a report.

How does it work?

To use the new app, students, parents or others simply visit the Henrico County Public Schools website and click on the “Anonymous Alerts” button or the text link to submit a report expressing a concern. Anonymous Alerts apps can be downloaded directly from the Apple, Google Play or Chrome stores.

Users enter Henrico Schools’ Anonymous Alerts activation code – Henrico – and select the school to which the message should go. Informational posters explaining how to use the system will be displayed in HCPS schools and offices.

To send reports from the internet, go to: https://report.anonymousalerts.com/henrico.

To send a report from your phone:

  • Download the free Anonymous Alerts app from the Apple Store, Google Play store or Chrome store.
  • Launch the app and enter the activation code, Henrico.
  • Send important reports to school officials.
  • If desired, add a screenshot, photo or video about the incident.
