Virginia primary day now a school holiday for Henrico County students

High voter turnout is expected for the Virginia primary election on Tuesday, March 1st.

March 1st will be a student holiday and staff planning day for Henrico County Public Schools students and staff, school officials announced Monday.

The Henrico Electoral Board cited high expected voter turnout for the Virginia primary, which could cause disruption to the instructional day, block busses from entering and exiting school property, and present parking challenges as the reason for deciding to close schools.

Wednesday, March 2nd, previously a student holiday, will now be a regular instructional day to make up for the lost classroom time.
