A Message from Superintendent Terry Price

Dear HCPS Community,

Please read this letter with your child(ren) and reflect on the ways in which each of you can do your part to help make this the best school year possible given the constraints of the current pandemic. Because in-person instruction is best for most students, we are putting our best efforts into making this option available for families. For those who need distance learning, we are providing a solid educational experience through the Online Learning Academy. It is our hope that by implementing the Online Learning Academy and A/B high school schedule, both of which allow for lower classroom numbers, we can safely continue in-person instruction for those who choose that option. We know that no matter which learning model you choose, this year will be like no other.

We all need to work together to make the best of one of the most challenging situations many of us have faced.

Personal responsibility will be essential to successfully navigate the upcoming school year. We need parents to emphasize to their students the importance of following health and safety expectations. In our experience, students typically rise to the occasion when the important adults in their lives ask them to modify their behaviors.

Here are the ways that parents can help:

HCHS Students: There are a lot of HCHS teachers and staff who want to help you this school year! Can you identify them all in these pictures? Let us know how we can help you! As a team we created "we are" statements because we are dedicated to helping you!

Fall Sports Fan Guidelines

The fan and attendance guidelines for all Henry County athletic events were developed following the guidelines provided by the KHSAA and school and local health officials. Refusal to follow the guidelines or any unsportsmanlike conduct can lead to suspension of the athletic event or removal from the facility. These guidelines are subject to change as information regarding COVID-19 changes. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding during these different times as we get our athletes back on the field. 

Please contact contact Stuart Dill at stuart.dill@henry.kyschools.us with any questions.

Please Complete this Form

It has been brought to our attention that not everyone has the ability to complete the required Household Income Form that was recently sent out in Word format. In an effort to make it user friendly for all of our families, you can now complete the form via this link https://forms.gle/8yPNwxZrNcFF6AaG7 and submit it online. Please remember that you only need to submit one form per household. If you have already submitted the Word document that was sent previously, you DO NOT need to complete this form. If you are a family that is direct certified (i.e. receiving food stamps) you DO NOT need to complete this form. If you have any problems or questions please contact the Board of Education at 502-845-8600. Thank you for your continued cooperation during this time.

Meal Program Update MealFlyer

Henry County Public Schools is pleased to announce a change to our current meal program. The USDA recently announced that we can revert back to the guidelines of the Summer Feeding Program which we were operating under in the spring and summer.

The change means that HCPS can now serve a breakfast and lunch to ANY child from birth to 18 years of age each day Monday through Friday. Henry County School Nutrition is partnering with the Henry County Public Schools Transportation Department to provide these meals to all children in the county beginning Sept. 3 through October 2 (with the exception of Sept. 7, Labor Day).

Some of our schools will serve as meal pickup locations, and we also offer mobile pickup locations on WiFi-enabled buses in areas of the county with poor internet connectivity. Meals can be picked up from New Castle Elementary School, Henry County High School and Eastern Elementary School from 10am to 1pm (also a change from 10am to noon), Monday through Friday. Mobile bus locations for meal pickup Monday through Friday include: Pleasureville City Hall, Cowboys in Pendleton and Turners Station Christian Church from 9am to 12pm; Lockport Baptist Church Pavilion from 9:30am to 12pm; and Campbellsburg Baptist Church from 9:30 to 10am (meal delivery only, no WiFi on this bus). Under extreme extenuating circumstances, we may be able to offer limited home delivery. To request home delivery, please call Anna or Ellen at 845-8600.

If you have questions about our meal program, please call HCPS’ School Nutrition Department at 845-8609. Thank you for the opportunity to serve your family in this way.

Mask Donations Accepted CoveringsLogo

As many of you know, Henry County Public Schools is preparing to be healthy at school when we do return to the classroom for in-person instruction in October. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, all staff and students in first grade and above will be asked to wear a mask unless they have a medical condition that prohibits them from doing so. While wearing a mask is one of the most effective ways to stop the spread of COVID-19, we understand masks may be forgotten, lost or damaged during the school day and require replacement. We also know this pandemic has impacted so many Kentucky families who may not have the resources to provide a mask to their child each school day, and we must try to reduce additional barriers from keeping our kids safe. This is why we are excited to share Coverings for Kids, an initiative by First Lady Britainy Beshear and Lt. Governor Jacqueline Coleman.

Coverings for Kids seeks to collect mask donations – handmade or otherwise – to provide to Kentucky schools at no cost. Donations of child and adult size masks will be accepted. These donations will help our students, faculty and staff remain healthy at school at the time of their return.

Meals Will be Provided through Oct. 2 MealProgram

Henry County School Nutrition is partnering with the Henry County Public Schools Transportation Department to provide meals to Henry County students while all our students are learning at home to begin this school year. Meals will be provided to all students enrolled in Henry County Public Schools from Wednesday, August 26, through Friday, October 2 (with the exception of Sept. 7, Labor Day).

At this time, federal and state regulations say we MUST return to the protocols of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP) just as we would for a routine school year. We will be using your child’s lunch number the same way we do during a normal school year to track the number of meals we provide. WE WILL MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT IF THESE REGULATIONS CHANGE TO THE SUMMER FEEDING PROGRAM (SFSP). If that were to happen, we will operate under the guidelines we used to provide meals during the spring and summer months.
