HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- A majority of full-time Henrico County Public Schools employees may be prepared to return to the classroom, but less than half of Henrico families are ready to send their students back to school in person, according to a school system survey whose results were made public Monday. The school system surveyed full-time employees and all families of public school students earlier this month to gauge the choices they might make if the School Board decides to offer some form of in-person learning for the second nine-week grading period, which begins Nov. 16.

The board is set to adopt a plan at its Thursday meeting after receiving a recommendation from its health committee. Click here to read more about the survey results on the Henrico Citizen.
