Skipwith Weekly Health Report – As you know, Henrico County Public Schools and Skipwith Elementary are doing everything reasonably possible to keep you informed about health concerns that are connected to our school.

Most importantly if your child is feeling sick, running a fever, or has COVID-like symptoms please keep them home and call the school to report the illness so we can help you determine their return date.

Kindergarten Registration: Online Kindergarten registration for the 22-23 school year begins Monday, April 18 using the following link https://henricoschools.us/registration/  

If you have any family, friends, or neighbors who have a child that will turn 5 by Sept.30, 2022, please remind them to go to the county or Skipwith website to complete the online registration forms. You can also direct them to call the school to set up an appointment to register their child for the 22-23 school year.
