Online Registration Launches July 6 Online Reg

Henry County Public Schools will strive to meet our mission of “Empowering leaders and life-long learners for an ever changing world.”  To achieve this mission, our strategic plan has a goal of using a systemic approach to innovative teaching and learning to ensure academic excellence for ALL students. We at HCPS believe that bringing our excellent teachers and curious learners together under the roofs of our buildings allows innovative practices to take place and creates the best environment for effective and successful teaching and learning. 

Our open enrollment process has been streamlined to an online platform, and we ask that each of you complete this form beginning Monday, July 6. Enrollment forms must be completed for every student each school year. We hope this new online form, which can be completed from any device through the Parent Portal of Infinite Campus, is more convenient for our families.

Jones Wins Again JonesWins

Brittany Jones, a Nutrition Department employee at Campbellsburg Elementary School (CES) who had previously been named the Kentucky School Nutrition Association (SNA) Employee of the Year, recently learned she had also been named the SNA Southeast Regional Employee of the year, an accolade that covers nine states. Because the Coronavirus epidemic cancelled both the state and national conferences at which Jones would have been honored, CES Cafeteria Manager Toni Jackson organized a red carpet recognition program at the school to acknowledge Jones’ accomplishment. “I’m truly thankful,” Jones said of the award and the program, complete with gift baskets, balloons and flowers. “I’m very grateful.”

Time to Immunize immunizations

Returning Henry County Public Schools students will need to have a current immunization certificate on file for the upcoming school year.

New requirements include a total of two Hepatitis A vaccines for all students and a second meningococcal vaccine at 16 years of age in addition to the regularly scheduled vaccines. Please contact your child's physician to ensure their vaccines are up to date.

The Henry County Health Department has upcoming dates for back-to-school vaccine clinics. Clinics will be held all day on July 22 and July 29 for vaccines only at the clinic. Other clinic dates and times will be August 6 from 4:30 to 8pm and August 8 from 8am to noon. Appointments can be made by calling the HCHD at 845-2882.

HCPS Sets Start Date for 2020 Calendar

Having concluded our 2019-2020 school year in an unprecedented fashion, we must now focus our full attention on reopening schools for the 2020-2021 school year. We have been closely following the situation and developing guidelines and have dedicated a great deal of time, effort and thought into what we can do as a district to protect our students and staff as we bring everyone back to school. This will be the first of several communications that you will receive over the next months concerning our opening.
