The reopening plans developed by Henry County Public Schools (HCPS) have been approved by the North Central District Health Department (NCDHD). HCPS provided its community with a series of eight reopening plans focusing on different areas of operations, including Online Academy, transportation, meals, cleanliness, student health, student safety, and attendance.
“I think your documents look good,” said Dr. Stephanie M. Lokits, DNP, APRN, FNP-BC,
Director of Nursing with NCDHD. “You seem to cover most of the major areas including when the students will be expected to wear masks, when temperatures will be screened and when you will be sanitizing, etc.”
Those plans can be reviewed by our families on the district website under the tab called, “Reopening Plans 2020-2021 (https://sites.google.com/henry.kyschools.us/reopeningplans/home).” They include a decision tree that outlines action items to be taken if a student or staff member experiences a COVID symptom, is directly exposed to the virus or tests positive for COVID.
“I think your documents are congruent with the current guidelines and are a great plan to get your students back in the classroom,” Lokits added.
