|To check out Season 2 of Henrico Edflix:
· Go to HCPS’ Virtual Learning website, where you’ll see the Henrico Edflix logo. Click “View Episodes.”
· Under “Who’s watching Edflix?” select the student grade level, which will tell you more about the activities involved in each season.
· For students in kindergarten through fifth grade, you’ll see “Season 2: Episode 1 (April 14-24),” which is made up of two parts: “Performance tasks” and “choice boards.” Performance tasks are in-depth projects for your students. Each choice board has columns for subjects such as language arts and math; K-5 students choose at least one activity from each column on the choice board to complete each week.
· For students in grades 6-12, activities and episode “time slots” are different, because these students are using Schoology on HCPS-issued laptops, and often have different course objectives than elementary students.
· Pre-K students have unique needs, and their seasons reflect that.
· There’s also a “Families” viewer option, with links and resources to bring you together as you learn.
· Students with disabilities will benefit from accessible virtual lessons from their exceptional education teachers. Students with disabilities who are moving forward with learning in high school credit courses will continue to receive support from their special education teachers and case managers.
Through Henrico Edflix, we want to offer engaging and enriching ways for your student to learn (and maybe “binge-learn”) during a challenging time. These lessons reinforce the central pillars of the Henrico Learner Profile just like lessons taught inside the walls of your student’s school. While the format is different, we will continue to strive for new ways to connect with your students, and give your family the flexibility you need.
What if you need help with Henrico Edflix? Of course, whether our buildings are open or closed, our staff and faculty are here to help. If you have questions, please start with your child’s teacher or school counselor. As for what else is part of HCPS’s on-demand learning plan?

Thank you for your willingness to adapt and try new things during this time, to keep your students engaged with learning. While it’s not easy, together we are working with creativity to make sure Henrico students have the support they need to succeed.
