Patrick Henry School of Science and Arts is on a year-round school with classes that started the first week of August. It’s not off to a good start when it comes to Covid-19.

Details from Richmond.com.

All 53 fourth-graders at the Patrick Henry School of Science and Arts in South Richmond are quarantined after four positive COVID-19 cases among students.

The positive cases have cropped up just days into the school year at Patrick Henry, a charter school that is part of Richmond Public Schools.

On Monday, Superintendent Jason Kamras reported in a newsletter that one student had tested positive and was last in the building on Aug. 4. He followed up that announcement later in the day and announced two more positive cases at the school, located at 3411 Semmes Ave. The two students were last in the building on Aug. 6. Officials at the Virginia Department of Health confirmed the cases and that 53 students are in quarantine.

A fourth case was announced Wednesday afternoon in a message from the school to parents. Later Wednesday, Kamras said in a newsletter that the student was last in the school on Aug. 5.

Suspension Bridge to Belle Isle Closed Today

The bridge should be completed by the weekend.

Published

on

The suspension pedestrian bridge to Belle Isle is temporarily closed due to concrete falling from Lee Bridge.

The closure took place Wednesday after city officials received reports of concrete pieces being found on the pedestrian bridge.

“It was concluded that the concrete pieces fell from an open joint of the Lee Bridge. Consequently, the pedestrian bridge located directly under the open joint had to be closed in an effort to protect the public,” a release said.

While the engineers say there is no serious danger they’re putting in a scaffolding protection system along some stretches of the bridge. The installation is taking place today (Thursday) and is expected to be done Friday.

Dominion RiverRock is this weekend and temperatures are in expected in the upper 90’s so usage of the bridge and Belle Isle will be at a season-high.

Drink Beer and Help Friends of James River Parks

Raging James Pilsner is the latest release from Legend Brewing and a portion of each sale will got to Friends of James River Park.

Published

on

Friends of James River Park announced their latest partnership today and it’s tasty.

Legend Brewing Company is the oldest operating craft brewery in Virginia. As their Vice President of Operations, Dave Gott, told us, “It’s important that you be a part of the community – not just IN the community.” Legend has hosted our board meetings and annual get-togethers. On any given weekend (and often any given day) their parking lot is full of cars carrying kayaks and bicycles, and their patio is crowded with people who have spent the day enjoying the James River Park System.

Given their proximity to the James River and our Park, we were elated when they floated the idea of creating a special beer for our organization. Raging James Pilsner is their newest release, and a portion of the sale of each can will help us continue our efforts. Legend has supported Richmond for almost 30 years, and as we approach 50 years of commitment to the Park, we’re honored to partner with them on this.
