HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) - Henrico County Public Schools is considering modified draft calendars for the 2022-23 and 2023-24 school years that include a before and after Labor Day start to the school year.

HCPS announced earlier in June that it was considering pre-Labor Day starts to allow for more time to be built in for cultural and religious observances.

The school board won’t decide on the calendar proposals until late August, but not before getting more input from families and staff during virtual informational sessions in July.

Here is a look at the proposed calendars:
