Virginia Primary day now a school holiday for RPS students

March 1st will now be a school holiday for City of Richmond and Henrico County students.

Following a decision by Henrico County Public Schools to close schools for the Virginia Primary, Richmond students will now have a school holiday as well on March 1st.

The district has taken this action due to the potential impact on instruction for our students and staff as well as the number of voters who will require access to our facilities, according to Richmond Public Schools spokeswoman Kenita Bowers.

While schools will be closed for students, all employees should report as normal.
