Note: Community recommendations are under consideration in accordance with numerous factors including Virginia law and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of HCPS and Henrico Police.
Mission: It is the mission of the Office of Safety and Security to guide, encourage and empower all members of the HCPS community to create an environment in which we can all safely learn, work and play.
Parents: The Henrico County Public School system wants to reassure you that safety is our first priority and we have put thoughtful planning into the safety and security of the school environment. Emergency readiness plans are developed, reviewed and updated on a continuous basis by our staff in close coordination with local police, fire, and emergency response teams. For security reasons, the specific details of crisis plans are not made available to the public. Staff training and school drills are conducted on a regular basis, even exceeding that which is required by the state. In addition, each of our schools goes through a rigorous and comprehensive safety audit.
In a non-emergency, please call your child's school to discuss your safety and security concerns.
If the emergency involves only your child, please contact the school.
