Henrico Edflix! Virtual Learning – LifeReady On-Demand Learning


Welcome ES students and families!

Henrico County Public Schools is committed to providing engaging review and enrichment experiences for students during a district closing. As a result, The Department of Teaching, Learning, and Innovation has created a Virtual Learning Plan to support all K-5 students with optional opportunities for review and enrichment that support connections to previously taught material. Beginning on May 4th, elementary teachers will engage students in 4th quarter concepts. Our optional learning opportunities extend the “6 C’s” skills and attributes within the Henrico Learner Profile, and concentrate on social emotional learning.

Who: Students in K-5

Why: Optional Virtual Learning experiences will expand students’ ongoing instructional time during a divisional school closing and support parents interested in additional resources.

What: These resources will engage students through the HCPS Virtual Learning Page which contains optional performance tasks and choice board menus for review and enrichment. Optional independent learning activities covering standards from the 4th quarter will be available starting May 4th. Activities and resources will be created in two-week episodes for access on the HCPS Virtual Learning Page. HCPS-approved digital resources to support review and enrichment experiences will be linked through CLEVER and will be available to all students.

K-5 Season 2, Episode 1 April 14 – April 24 (released April 13)

  • Establish virtual learning routines and expectations for at home instruction

  • Inform students and parents on how to interact with performance tasks and choice boards rooted in the attributes and skills within the Henrico Learner Profile

How: Students will work on the various optional activities at a pace and time that works best for your family. Teachers will connect with students during the extended closing through virtual meetings and other creative learning experiences. While our weekly targets for online class meetings are approximately 60 minutes (K-1) – 90 minutes (2-5) , other learning activities will include student engagement in performance tasks, choice boards, and independent activities, along with teacher feedback with individuals and/or small groups.
