Wolverine Weekly Parent Newsletter

June 7, 2021

Square with "Wolverine Weekly" text

Henrico County Public Schools is working closely with the Virginia Department of Health to offer the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in select middle schools for students ages 12 and up. To assist with planning, please complete the short survey below by June 9. Vaccinations are not required to attend school in the fall, but students who are fully vaccinated and asymptomatic will not have to quarantine if exposed to someone else who tests positive for COVID-19. This means fully vaccinated, asymptomatic students would be less likely to miss in-person learning time, participation in extracurricular activities, and/or athletics throughout the 2021-22 school year.
