HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Henrico County Public Schools’ free Back-to-School Kickoff event, originally scheduled for Friday, has been postponed.
8News received word of the cancelation from a school division spokesperson Thursday night, citing the soggy ground conditions and the likelihood of more rain on Friday.
The event has been rescheduled to Friday, Aug. 27 from 4-8 p.m. on the grounds of the Eastern Henrico Recreation Center.
Families will be able to enjoy fun activities such as giveaways, performances, a live DJ and food trucks. The “sprayground” water play area will be open for children to splash around in, as well.
In addition to the fun and games, parents will be able to register their child for school, talk with HCPS representatives and find more information about resources available to them.
