TES End of Year Activities!

Field Day

Parents, please be on the lookout for Field Day 2020 which can be found on the Episode 4 Choice Board.  This year’s Field Day was put together by Elementary School Physical Education teachers from around the county and should be a lot of fun.  Field Day will include an Opening Ceremony, Teacher Dance, and many fun activities that can be completed at home.  One final task will allow students to help the teachers complete Field Day 2020.  Students will be asked to create the final station to make Field Day complete.  Mr. Seward would love to see the final station your student creates.  Please visit Mr. Seward’s Flipgrid at https://flipgrid.com/seward1013 to upload a video of the created station and for extra Field Day instructions from Mr. Seward.

End of Year Student Conferences

In the coming days classroom teachers will be scheduling final individual student conferences by providing a platform for parents to sign up for a time that is convenient for your family. Conferences will take place virtually between June 8-12 and will last 10-15 minutes. This will provide students an opportunity to connect individually with their teacher and share positive reflections of growth from the 2019-2020 school year. Parents are also invited to attend the conference.

Final Class Meetings

Teachers will facilitate a final class meeting with their students during the week of June 1 and will communicate with you about the specific date and time of this culminating meeting. This will be a time for celebrating the students’ school year as a whole class community, and will be the final face to face virtual experience for students with their teacher and classmates. Teachers will not schedule class meetings during the week of June 8 as they will be completing end of the year check out procedures and holding student conferences.

Student Send Off “Drive By” Celebration

We have really missed seeing our students! On Friday, June 12th from 4:30 – 5:30 we would like to provide an opportunity to wave good-bye to our students from a safe distance. The TES staff will be safely positioned on the sidewalk and lawn in the front of the school to wish our TES students a wonderful summer. We are asking that parents drive by the school by coming down Forest Avenue from the Tuckahoe Shopping Center and heading toward Patterson Avenue. This way the children will be able to see their teachers and we can all wave goodbye. Fifth Grade parents will be receiving more detailed information regarding the “Drive Thru” Completion Celebration on Thursday, June 11 from 4:30 – 6:30.

Report Cards

End of the year report cards will be mailed later in June. Parents will also receive pertinent grade level specific information (i.e. 5-6 Accelerated Math letters, CogAT testing results, ACCESS test results etc.) at that time. Supply lists will be sent home as usual; however, I do not encourage parents to purchase those items until we get closer to the fall, as we do not yet know the format in which the 20-21 school year will begin.

COVID-19: An important announcement

Concern about COVID-19 (coronavirus) has created a rapidly evolving environment where changes are being made quickly in the interest of public health.

Starting Monday, March 16, Henrico County Public Schools will be closed for students for two full weeks of school (through Friday, March 27). We will continue to assess the situation, and decide later if we need to extend this period of closure.

We realize this creates many questions about how students will continue their learning. We have a thorough plan in place, and detailed information about student learning will be communicated in a separate message.

Our teachers and staff will use Monday, March 16, to continue their preparations. “Virtual learning” experiences (digital and non-digital) will be available to students of all grade levels starting on Tuesday, March 17.

During this unprecedented experience, we will continue to do everything possible to ensure the health and safety of our community. The HCPS Facilities and Pupil Transportation departments will conduct additional cleaning of school buildings and buses, and continue to assess the best cleaning practices.

Additionally, for many of our students, the meals provided at our schools are a crucial part of their daily nutrition. Additional plans are being made to address this vital need across the Henrico Community.

Please know that this is not a decision that we make lightly. We realize that any change to educational schedules is disruptive and inconvenient. However, our priority must always be the health and safety of our students, staff members and community.

Again, more details about student learning will be forthcoming in separate communications. Visit the “COVID-19” page on our website for full information from HCPS.

An important message for families of students who use bus transportation

This is an important message for families of students who use bus transportation:

First day of school is almost here! Our drivers have been working hard to rehearse their routes and make sure Sept. 3 is the beginning of a great week. With that in mind, we ask for your patience next week as some buses may experience delays. Here’s why, along with answers to some other frequently asked questions.

What can I expect during the first week of school?

Thousands of Kindergarten and preschool students are riding a school bus for the very first time. We take extra care with these students, such as requiring authorized adults to show ID in order to get them off the bus in the afternoon. Afternoon delays are inevitable as parents become accustomed to our process, and as our drivers meet many of these families for the first time. In limited instances, bus delays may become very lengthy on the first couple of days, but those delays should quickly shorten as everyone gets used to the new routine.

We also realize that the first week of school can often be filled with emotional moments and “must get” photo opportunities. Sometimes this will result in buses being behind schedule.

Where can I find bus information?

Bus stop information is now available on our website as well as through Rycor Online Forms and PowerSchool. We recommend students be at their morning bus stop five minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive. Please review bus stop safety procedures and follow the direction of bus drivers.

Will you let me know if the bus is running 10-15 minutes late?

Pupil Transportation staff makes every effort to notify parents of significantly late buses through School Messenger text messages. For more information on our automated communication methods, click here to visit the Communications and Community Engagement page 

What if I need to call someone in the Transportation department?

If you would like to speak to someone in our Transportation department, you can do that too by calling one of our zone offices. Henrico is a big county that is served by several different transportation zones. To find the zone office that is responsible for your student’s school, click here.

How do I make a formal request regarding my student’s transportation?

Transportation staff receives hundreds of written requests from parents in September. Parents should complete the “School Bus Request Form,” also linked on the web page.  Priority will be placed on assigning new or recently moved students. Requests for changes to bus stop locations will be addressed as a lower priority.

Here’s to a great 2019-20 school year!

Josh Davis
Director, Pupil Transportation
