As we move forward in our current educational world and all of the challenges we face, Henry County Public Schools elementary students will NOT be returning to in-person learning on December 7, 2020 according to the governor’s Executive Order.
In a meeting with the Commissioner of Education today, he reiterated what the governor’s order covered; one being the status of our county. The order states that if a county is still in the red category, no in-person learning can take place. Today’s county incidence rate is 48.7 and we need to be at 25 or below. Yesterday’s state totals of reported COVID cases were over 4,100 which is extremely high for a one-day total.
Again, I will evaluate mid-week, every week, to discuss a return to in-person learning if requirements are met. I will be notifying the school community and parents each week so that plans can be made for child care, etc.
Henry County Public Schools will continue to provide meals to students as noted in the current schedule that can be found on our website [front page] as well as on social media. Should you have additional questions, please feel free to call our board office at 502-845-8600 or your child’s school.
Please periodically check our media outlets to be informed. Information is added and/or changed frequently. Thank you for your cooperation and support!
