Weekly COVID Report

As you know, Henrico County Public Schools and Wilder are doing everything reasonably possible to keep you informed about health concerns that are connected to our school. With that in mind, I have an important message to share with you. Moving forward, we will be sharing the number of positive COVID-19 cases and associated exposures ( close contacts) at Wilder each week as part of this regular communication. This notification will replace the community emails that we have sent previously. We hope this new streamlined approach will help keep you informed without flooding your inbox. HCPS will update the numbers on the main website once a week, by Monday afternoon.

9/13-9/17 Report:

4 Positive Cases and 4 Exposures

NEW! Fall SOL Testing Window

October Growth Assessments: Please read the following letter with information regarding October Growth Assessments, a new expectation of schools from the VA Department of Education.


Robotics Club Interest Meeting

The next Robotics Club interest meeting is Thursday, September 23 at 3:00-4:30 in room 2702!
