From HCPS Superintendent Terry Price:
On Friday July 24, 2020, I met with the 2020 high school senior class officers. Based on our initial discussions last spring, it was determined that our first reschedule date for graduation and prom would be August 7, 2020. Based on current conditions and information obtained from the Kentucky Department of Education and the Governor’s office, we will not be allowed to make this happen.
The next date chosen by the senior officers was October 3, 2020. In our meeting, and based on senior student input, it was decided to forego an in-person graduation and prom for the 2020 senior class. The main reason for this decision dealt with students not coming back to HCHS for this event due to students beginning college, careers, and various jobs. The officers expressed great gratitude regarding the virtual graduation and the drive-thru diploma pick up with pictures and teachers held at the end of last school year.
The senior officers have decided to use the remainder of their class funds to purchase additional gifts for the seniors. The officers directed me to arrange this with Mr. Sageser, Henry County High School Principal. The delivery of the gifts will be handled in a drive-thru fashion on a date TBD. Students’ names will be drawn for each gift and distributed to each student.
