In honor of Virginia School Principals Appreciation Week, here’s a quick video shout-out to some of the principals that are making a difference in students’ lives!
There is a new traffic pattern for drop off and pick up. Click here to down load a copy of the new map.
The Parent Portal Access for Schoology has now been opened to Hungary Creek parents. This will allow you to follow all of your students’ courses throughout the school year.
In order to provide the highest level of security of your student’s personal information while also allowing you access to create and connect your Schoology account, HCPS has stored your child’s Schoology Access Code within PowerSchool. This means that parents will first create or sign into PowerSchool, locate the Schoology tab, and use the information found there to create and connect their Schoology account. Once a parent has completed setting up Schoology, they can sign into Schoology independently of Powerschool. Remember – Powerschool will continue to be the gradebook of record. When checking/verifying your child’s grades always refer to PowerSchool.

The Henrico County School Board made a decision at its monthly meeting, March 23, on the small-scale first phase of a two-year middle school redistricting process. The Board chose Option C for the first phase, which will move a small pocket of Hungary Creek Middle School’s attendance area to Holman Middle School starting in fall 2017. The move is designed to reduce overcrowded conditions at Hungary Creek, and will only apply to students who are currently in fifth-grade or younger.
Where is the pocket and how will affected families be notified?
The pocket affected by the Board’s move is a small area north of West Broad Street where Gaskins and Hungary roads intersect with Springfield Road. Sixty-eight rising students from Springfield Park and Longan elementary schools will be shifted from Hungary Creek to Holman, and those families will receive detailed information about the change and next steps shortly. Affected students would not be moved again as part of the 2018-19 phase. For more details, including a map, visit our redistricting page: henricoschools.us/redistricting
With the 2017-18 shift decided, the process will now focus on draft options for more extensive 2018-19 shifts affecting more HCPS middle schools. While the small-pocket part of Option C was chosen for the 2017-18 phase, the more sweeping Option C proposal is just one option being considered for the 2018-19 phase, along with Option A in addition to any potential future options that are created and released to the public.
How can I comment on the larger-scale 2018-19 options?
There are two in-person events specifically designed for public input:
- At an informal open-house-style community input session April 6 from 6-7:30 p.m. at L. Douglas Wilder Middle School (6900 Wilkinson Road), members of the public can drop by, see maps of proposed options displayed in the gym and discuss the draft options with staff members and the redistricting consultant.
- A public hearing May 11 from 6-7:30 p.m. at New Bridge Auditorium (5915 Nine Mile Road) will be a more formal format with an agenda that will include a chance for members of the community to address the Board. Each person’s remarks will be limited to three minutes.
Community members are also encouraged to weigh in by using the online survey/comment form. The form, along with news and resources related to the process, can be found on HCPS’ website, at henricoschools.us/redistricting.
The redistricting process will not affect current middle or high school students.
