Keep Raintree Together
As Henrico County looks to redraw the 2021 school boundaries, there are several options that would separate Raintree into two different High School zones: Tucker and Godwin and/or Godwin and Freeman. This would not only divide our community, but would prohibit students from walking to school, creating traffic safety and bus transportation concerns.
Raintree was the first master plan community developed in Henrico County in the mid-1970’s. Although the original development included less, what has become, generally referred to as Raintree, encompasses the whole quadrant from Gaskins to Pump and from Gayton/Quioccasin to Ridgefield (for our purposes here, including Raintree West and the Gayton Forest subdivisions).
We have a decades old, established, strong community that is now threatened by Henrico County Public School redistricting project. For nearly 50 years, our children have walked our community trails together, spent summer days at our anchoring community Raintree Swim & Racket Club, and attended elementary, middle, and high school together as a united community.
Please sign the petition and submit comments to Keep Raintree Together at Godwin High School and let the Henrico School Board and the Redistricting Committee know that residents of Raintree oppose any option that splits our community.
