Team Chesterfield families,

As we receive new guidance daily from the state and federal levels, Chesterfield County Public Schools continues to adjust plans for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. Please keep in mind that while school buildings are closed for in-person instruction, learning continues. Our role now is to continue to prepare students for success in the 2020-21 academic year to the best of our ability.

Today’s communication includes information about grading. We apologize in advance for the length of this message, but want to be as clear as possible about our work and expectations related to it.

This guidance has been provided by the Virginia Department of Education: “Whereas the VDOE recognizes that decisions on grades are a local decision, the VDOE does not recommend grading work completed during the closures since schools are closed.”


Chesterfield, VA. March 26, 2020 – Our community has been faced with a challenging time given our current environment. We understand the impact that COVID-19 has had on our families and students. From schools closing for the remainder of the academic school year and halting educational opportunities to families facing economic instability and food insecurity, the hardships many are facing are not going unnoticed. A lot has been thrown at Chesterfield County and the world during these last two weeks. However, even with all of that, we still have people asking, “How can we support our community members in need?”


Thank you to the families who joined us recently for a Winterpock community meeting regarding the potential relocation of the center-based gifted program currently located at the school.
As you know, Winterpock Elementary currently is the most overcrowded elementary school in Chesterfield County (137 percent capacity as of last week). Student enrollment grew by 125 students from February 2019 to February 2020 alone. Growth in the area is projected to continue at or above the current rate based on construction underway in the school attendance zone.


As you may know, the School Board and Board of Supervisors have approved construction plans for a new elementary school that soon will be built in the Magnolia Green subdivision. The yet-to-be named new school is slated to open in Fall 2022.

The school division will host a community meeting on Jan. 15 to discuss construction plans. The meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria at Winterpock Elementary.
