The Henrico Education Foundation could use our help!

Feb 22, 2018


Act fast and help HEF raise an additional $10,000
Make February the month to strengthen Henrico County Public Schools! Two anonymous donors have teamed up to generously match contributions up to $10,000 to the Henrico Education Foundation (HEF) Annual Fund before February 28th. That means for the next nine days, your gift to HEF will be doubled. A gift of $100 will become $200…$500 will double to $1,000…and your gift of $10,000 will become an astonishing $20,000. With your help, we can reach the goal for our matching gift challenge and enhance the quality of public education in classrooms across Henrico County. We’ve already raised the first $6,001. Make your gift today and help us reach the goal before time expires!

Our Impact
The Henrico Education Foundation’s (HEF) work in support of HCPS is more important than ever as principals and teachers look for new instructional strategies and approaches to improve public schools and ignite student learning.  Founded in 1993 as a public-private partnership with the school district, HEF serves as a catalyst to create innovation, identify research-based solutions, replicate best practices in additional classrooms, and connect strategic partnerships with public schools. HEF funds creative instructional approaches with strong academic goals that directly address the opportunity gap and increase student achievement. The foundation supports all schools in Henrico County, working to provide every student and teacher the support and resources they need for success.
Thank you for investing in our schools and the future of our children. Together we are strengthening public schools by empowering teachers, inspiring students and engaging the community. For more information, visit our website www.henricofoundation.org.

Drop Off Loop Image

Drop Off Loop

Parents may drop off students in the gymnasium parking lot in the morning starting at 8:05 a.m. There are signs directing parents to the drop off area.  Parents may pick up their child starting at 3:15 p.m. in the gymnasium parking lot.  Signs will be posted in the gymnasium parking lot to assist with traffic pattern.

Identification of Student Drop Off and Pick Up Areas:

Parents may drop off students in the gymnasium parking lot in the morning starting at 8:05 a.m. There are signs directing parents to the drop off area.  Parents may pick up their child starting at 3:15 p.m. in the gymnasium parking lot.  Signs will be posted in the gymnasium parking lot to assist with traffic pattern.

Directional Flow of Traffic:

Parents must enter through the entrance of the gymnasium parking lot to drop off/pick up their child and leave through the exit.  Parents must also enter through the entrance of the Main Office parking lot for an appointment and leave through the exit.  Signs are clearly posted at each location.

Procedures for Pulling Up to the School:

At the parent pick up/drop off location in the gymnasium parking lot, the school staff will direct traffic so that parents will pull toward the front of the parking lot.  Parents are to pull up in the loop as far as possible to allow traffic to flow more smoothly.  This is in an effort to deter parents from attempting to drop off students on Lydell Drive.

Procedures for Student Pickup:

Parents will be directed to pull forward and park in the gymnasium parking lot as they did at the student drop off location.  They will have to pull forward toward Lydell Drive and wait for their child to arrive.  During the school day, if a parent or visitor is found parking in the front loop during any other time besides parent drop off, they will be asked to move their vehicle immediately and park in the designated parking area.
