Henry County Public Schools is excited to announce that the first dose of the COVID vaccine will be administered to our staff members next week. In order to accommodate the mass vaccination event, we will close to in-person instruction on Thursday, Feb. 4. All students will learn at home virtually on this day.
We have appreciated your support, flexibility and cooperation throughout this pandemic. Providing these vaccines is a huge step forward in getting things back to normal while continuing to offer added protection and safety to our staff and students.
All HCPS employees who requested the vaccine have been provided an appointment. In total about 240 employees throughout the district will receive a vaccination.
We will likely announce another NTI day next month to administer the second dose after we receive confirmation of receipt of the vaccinations. Please know we are working under the constraints of receiving, storing and administering the vaccine as well as the time and administrative constraints of our vaccination provider.
Thank you in advance for your continued collaboration as we do everything in our power to protect the health and safety of our staff, students and families, and that we work hard to ensure our ability to hold in-person instruction.
