News & Announcements

Cobb Named HCPS Teacher of the Year CobbTOY

It’s not every day that the superintendent of schools shows up on your doorstep with an award, but that’s what happened to Lori Cobb, a teacher at Eastern Elementary School, last Thursday. Cobb was chosen from among a group of six teacher nominees from each school as the Henry County Public Schools (HCPS) Teacher of the Year.

Normally, the HCPS Teacher of the Year is recognized at a dinner program at which the winner, which is kept secret until the announcement, is named. With the restrictions of the Coronavirus this year, an in-person program was not an option. The district instead held a virtual recognition program which included all the nominees, their principals and any other family or friends they wanted to invite. At the end of the virtual program, the winner was announced live in the virtual meeting with a home visit from HCPS Superintendent Terry Price.

HCPS Families Can Apply for Food Assistance PEBT

Through the Kentucky Department of Education and the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Henry County Public School families can apply for the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT). This financial benefit of $313.50 is meant to subsidize the meals families lost during the mandated school closure. Because many students in our district qualify for free or reduced-price school meals, HCPS is classified as a Community Eligible Provision (CEP) district. Due to this classification, EVERY student in our district can apply for the P-EBT program.

Enrolled students who receive SNAP benefits on an active EBT card will automatically receive additional funds for P-EBT on their cards. The guardian or parent does not need to do anything to receive this additional funding.

Enrolled students who receive Medicaid or KTAP benefits based on income levels below the NSLP income guidelines, or who are in foster care, will automatically receive a P-EBT care in the mail with instructions. The guardian or parent does not need to do anything to receive this supplemental benefit.

HCPS will continue meals through June Meals

From mid-March through the end of May, Henry County Public Schools (HCPS) will have served nearly 200,000 meals to its students even though not a single child has been at school. Henry County Public School’s Nutrition Services Department committed to provide a healthy breakfast and lunch to every child in the district through the Coronavirus closure. Now, it wants to do even more.

“We are so thankful for everyone that helped with meal service during the Covid-19 school closure. From businesses donating bags, other school nutrition directors sharing their ideas, and employees throughout the district stepping up to help wherever help was needed,” said Anna Fugate, HCPS Nutrition Services Director. “I want to specifically thank the school nutrition staff for all of their hard work. Each staff member has gone above and beyond to ensure that children receive meals. And as the school year comes to a close, we are excited to continue offering meals throughout the month of June.”
