Tuckahoe Elementary Office Hours – Information

Tuckahoe families,

 

We are eager to support you with 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). We will have additional opportunities for you and your child to see the school in late August and September.

 

Again, please contact us so that you can make an appointment to register your child. Information about the registration process and needed forms and documentation can be found HERE.

 

Thank you, and we hope that you and your family continue to have a safe and enjoyable summer!

  3. Complete the three forms available in the portal:

    • Enrollment Form (parts 1 and 2).

    • McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act screening form.

  1. Upload the additional documents spelled out on our registration page.

  2. Submit your registration to your school online.
