HCPS Holding Public Information Meetings to Consider Redistricting Boundaries for New Elementary School

A new elementary school scheduled to open next year on Pouncey Tract Road could pull students from over ten other schools. Henrico County Public Schools plans to host a series of meetings to seek input from the community on the best way to re-draw existing school attendance boundaries.

Two public information sessions will be held, one each on September 6th and 7th. The meetings will begin at 6:00 p.m. at Deep Run High School.

Two volunteer representatives from each of the ten affected schools,  Colonial Trail, Gayton, Jackson Davis, Longan, Nuckols Farm, Pinchbeck, Ridge, Rivers Edge, Shady Grove and Short Pump, will be in attendance.

The School Board will consider the recommendations of the volunteer committee at their December 13th meeting.
