    HOW DOES SPORTS WORK THIS YEAR? (Basketball) 

    b ball

    Henry County Schools sports programs are still up and running.  For detailed information about any sport, click our Athletics page on our website.  

    Our head boys basketball coach is Coach Elliott Montgomery and our head girls basketball coach is Coach Keshaun Peterson.  The ELHS Boys Basketball team were the Region 4AAAA 2013 State Basketball Champs and our ELHS Girls Baskeball team earned a spot in the 2020 GHSA Final Four tournament.  We would LOVE to see the Class of 2024 dominate the court!


    HOW AM I GOING TO LEARN OFF OF A COMPUTER?

    remote

    Online learning is new for almost all of us.  Our district, administrators and teachers have spent months preparing for an engaging and meaningful experience.  Your Google Classroom account is where your classwork is located.  There is also a Google Meet link inside the account where your classes will be live streamed.  Participate the exact same way that you would in a face to face setting.  

     

    But if you find yourself struggling, LET US KNOW.  We are ALL in this together.  If you need extra help, in a couple of weeks, we will be able to offer tutoring through Instructional Focus.  Remember that your teachers have "Office Hours" at 7:45 AM and 3:15 PM.  Send them an e-mail letting them know that you need more attention.  Most teachers have a classroom Remind account.  Send your teachers an SOS text letting them know that you need help.  And remember that NO question, is a "dumb" question.  Most people are afraid to ask and have the exact same questions that you do.

     

    If you have issues with technology (it happens to all of us), e-mail Lawson Molony at lawson.molony@henry.k12.ga.us.  They will schedule a time for you to check your device.
