Important HCPS Updates

Dear Parents and Families of Hopewell City Public Schools, 

About a week ago, I provided you with updates on our plans for continuing student learning this spring while school buildings are closed.  I want to follow up with some important updates and reminders.  

Our teachers and staff have been busy building the plans and resources for this learning, which will launch on Tuesday, April 14th.  All plans and resources will be provided electronically through the teacher or school website. We also will provide paper copies of the plans outside the front of each school on Tuesday from 10am to 7pm.  During these same hours on Tuesday, we will provide Chromebooks to check out for any student grade K-12 who doesn’t yet have one.  

Starting next week, our school administrators will be at each school to answer phone calls and help with other needs between 10am and 7 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  In addition, starting on the 14th you can call the main phone number at the School Board Office at 804-541-6400 between 8:00a and 4:00p and we will be happy to help you and get you to the right person as needed.  Administrators are available throughout every day by email. We continue to work regular hours and more as we also follow the orders of the governor and advice of public health officials to keep everyone as safe as possible. 

To help answer questions you may have about our learning plans and other topics, we have created a Frequently Asked Questions, or FAQ, section on our website at  If you have a question you don’t see answered there, there is a link for you to send in a question and we will follow up with you and continue to add more information to this page.  

Please be patient as it is likely we will need to make changes as we go through the coming weeks, as guidelines from the state also continue to be updated.  

We miss your children so much and hope to see them again very soon.
