- Superintendent Communication: I will send out communication via district news announcements on our website, Facebook, Twitter and/or a One-Call every Friday to update our district’s and county’s status and what is planned for the next scheduled school week.
- Athletics: The Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) has approved fall high school sports play-offs to continue as planned. The start of winter athletics was postponed by KHSAA. Winter sports may resume indoor practices on Dec. 14, 2020, and games on Jan. 4. 2021. These dates are governed by the KHSAA and are subject to change.
I am disappointed to have to move away from in-person learning since Henry County has been so successful. Credit goes to the incredible amount of hard work all our staff and your students have devoted to this unusual school year. We hope to be able to resume in-person instruction by the above dates or soon thereafter. Please watch for additional communications from me and your school with more specific details, as well as information regarding how to obtain school meals - a service we are committed to continue to provide to all our students.
Henry County students are resilient; they bounce back, but please keep your children and young adult(s) on top of their school assignments. If your child is struggling academically, please reach out to his or her teacher. If there are basic needs we may be able to help you with, please call either the Family Resource Center for elementary families or the Youth Services Center for middle and high school families. If your child has a counseling need, please do not hesitate to contact your school’s counselor. The times that we are in are harder on our kids than one may know.
I know this transition to virtual learning is difficult for many of you and your students, but please understand that we are here to support our families, with a commitment to provide high quality instruction to our students. We appreciate your collaboration, support and patience as we all work together as a school district and a community to do what’s best for our children and families, as well as our friends and neighbors.
