An Important Message from HCPS: April 7, 2024
Posted on 04/07/2024
HCPS LogoDear Families, Faculty, and Staff,

Last night, our valued partners at the Hanover County Sheriff’s Office and Hanover County Fire-EMS responded to a shooting in the far eastern portion of our county. Tragically, a juvenile was killed. We extend our deepest condolences to the family of the victim of this heartbreaking incident.

Understandably, there has been considerable concern following this shooting. While the Sheriff’s Office continues to conduct its investigation, we have confirmed with the Sheriff’s Office that the victim was not a Hanover County Public Schools student or a Hanover County resident.

While the victim was not one of our students, we recognize that such incidents can still deeply affect our school community and our broader community. As with any tragic incident – involving our students or otherwise – please be assured that our school counselors and staff stand ready to support our students. If your students need additional support, they are encouraged to visit their school counseling office.

Again, we send our deepest condolences to the victim’s family and are prepared to provide additional support to any students who may be in need.

Thank you.

Hanover County Public Schools
