HCPS offers new online form opportunity for parents


It’s a September ritual: weeks before autumn leaves fall, families of school-age children are blanketed with piles of back-to-school forms. But in Henrico County, paper forms are giving way to an online solution that makes the process easier for parents, students, teachers and school staff – while saving lots of paper.

Last year, Henrico County Public Schools adopted ZippSlip, a cloud-based hub that enables parents to fill out and return electronic forms such as field trip permission slips, medical forms and volunteer sign-ups.

The use of ZippSlip is optional; parents can still choose to use paper forms.
