    E-SPLOST 6 - Vote Tomorrow

    Good afternoon, HCS Families,

    Tomorrow is the day to vote on the E-SPLOST 6 referendum. Before heading to the polls, we hope that you will take a moment to visit our district website to find out more about the history of the Education SPLOST, its importance in our community, the many projects that have been completed since the first pennies were collected in 1998, and what's on the horizon as a part of E-SPLOST 6.

    As a reminder, this is not a new tax. It is a continuation of the one-cent sales tax that everyone who spends a dollar in Henry County pays for.

    You can also watch any of the following videos of town halls from our board members' respective districts. These district-specific sessions will give you a better glimpse into what your district will be receiving as a part of E-SPLOST 6. Also, you can visit your school's website to find out what your specific school will be receiving as a part of E-SLOST 6. There's plenty of information available for you to make an informed decision on the future of education for our students.

    Dist. 1 Town Hall w/ Dr. Pam Nutt
    Dist. 2 Town Hall w/ Mr. Makenzie McDaniel
    Dist. 3 Town Hall w/ BOE Chair Mrs. Holly Cobb

    Good evening, Henry County Families,

    It has been a busy start to the new year, and it is time to begin planning for the 2021 -2022 school year. We are excited to share that next school year will include some new virtual learning options for all families.

Elementary students will have three options if they would like to choose online learning.

    Families for our elementary learners can choose blended, full virtual, or Evening Academy options. Please see the attached flyer for more information.

    Message to HS Families - ACCESS 2.0 (Assessing Comprehension and Communication in English for English Language Learners) testing in Georgia

    Parents,

    The window for ACCESS 2.0 (Assessing Comprehension and Communication in English for English Language Learners) testing in Georgia is open and has been extended to March 26, 2021. Like the Georgia Milestones Assessments, the state requires ACCESS 2.0 testing be conducted face to face.
    As a result of the state window extension and Henry County Schools students currently utilizing remote learning, the school district has adjusted its window for testing English Language Learners (ELLs). All ACCESS 2.0 testing occurs during the school day.

    Specifically, Henry County Schools’ plan for ACCESS 2.0 testing is as follows: 

    • January 13-February 5, schools may schedule individual testing appointments for English Language Learners who have been on-site learners to come to school for testing. 
    • February 8- February 25- ESOL teachers will schedule remote English Language Learners to come onsite during the school day for testing. 
    • Each remote English Language Learner will be assigned one week (4 consecutive days Mon-Thurs) to be assessed onsite: Feb 1 - 5 or Feb 8 - 12 or Feb 22 – 25
    • Remote English Language Learners may use HCS bus transportation to and from school during their assigned assessment week.
    • If a student’s testing is completed prior to the end of the week, the school shall communicate with that student’s family, so the child may return immediately to remote instruction if the family desires it.
    • March 1- March 18- ESOL teachers will finish assessing in-person English Language Learners.
    • March 19-March 26- ESOL teachers will conduct any make-up testing with English Language Learners unable to test in previous weeks.

    Families who need transportation to school for ACCESS testing while all students are engaged in remote learning should contact your child’s ESOL teacher to arrange transportation.

    If you have questions about ACCESS 2.0 testing, you may contact your child’s English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) teacher or building administrator.

    Message to Families - School Starts Monday!

    Jan8


    Good afternoon, HCS Families, 

    We hope that you all have had a restful and energizing semester break. It's hard to believe it is time to start the second semester, but we know that this half of the school year is one of the most exciting as everyone really hits their stride and learning moves to even greater heights!

    As you know, everyone will start Monday in a remote learning environment, and this learning method is slated to last for two weeks. For students making their way back to the remote setting, think back to how the school year started in August through September, as Monday will entail a similar environment. Everyone will need to log in on time for each class. It is important that you are present and ready to participate in your classes in order to have a successful start in 2021. Don't forget to charge your personal learning device over the weekend.

    And since everyone will be remote, that means that students wishing to receive school meals will need to complete their pre-orders in time to pick them up on Wednesday. You can use the following video (Click Here ) to hear important information regarding the pre-order process, pick-up locations, and MySchoolBucks.com accounts. In order to receive meals on this upcoming Wednesday, January 13 from 11am-1pm, you must pre-order no later than 8pm on Monday, January 11.

    We hope everyone has a great weekend, and we'll see you all online on Monday!

    Message to Families - Henry County Schools to Return to Full-Remote Learning

    Jan4


    Good evening, Henry County Schools Families, 

    As shared in an earlier communication with you this week, we have kept a keen eye on the local impacts of COVID-19 in our community, and we have unfortunately seen the number of cases rise dramatically in our county. This troubling trend created a sense of urgency in our school district to look at all options for the continued health and wellbeing of our school community.

    In our board-approved Gradual and Staggered Return to Campus Plan adopted originally on August 31 and updated on October 19, the process by which the district would shift to remote operations when needed, was outlined. Key to this comprehensive formalized plan is the expectation by the board of education that the superintendent work with our strong and well-established community partners – Georgia Department of Public Health District 4 officials, Piedmont Henry Hospital executives, and county emergency management agency officials. As a result of continued and in-depth consultations over the semester break and late into this evening, it has been determined that all learning will move to full remote starting Monday, January 11, with a current anticipated return to optional on-campus learning on Monday, January 25.

    A decision such as this is not made in isolation, and like similar critical decisions made during this pandemic, we are confident in the sound collaboration with trusted partners and experts. Along with the full endorsement and agreement from the board of education, our school community will continue its successful efforts in providing an exceptional educational experience and a focus on the health and wellbeing of all students, staff, families, and community members.

    More information on essential operations for the successful continuation of remote instruction will be released this week. Thank you as always for your support and understanding during these complex times.

    Message to HS Families - Update to EOC Test Weight Changed for Student's Final Grade

    EOC

    Henry County Schools High School Families, 

    As shared in an earlier communication with you this week, we have kept a keen eye on the local impacts of COVID-19 in our community,The Georgia State Board of Education held a meeting on Monday, December 21 regarding End-of-Course (EOC) tests and the weight this grade bears on a student’s final course grade. They recommended and approved changes to this grade weight, and accordingly, Henry County Schools is modifying how grades in EOC-associated courses will be calculated for these courses ending during the first semester (December 18, 2020) of the 2020-2021 school year. This new calculation will impact students who are taking Algebra 1, Biology, American Literature, and US History.

    A student’s performance on the EOC compared to the student’s classwork average will determine the weight of the EOC score in the student’s final grade.

    For example: 

    • If a student earns a higher score on the EOC than the student’s cumulative grade prior to the EOC score or final exam grades being entered, then the EOC score will comprise 20 percent of the final grade since the EOC score will positively contribute to the student’s overall grade.

    • If the student earns a lower score on the EOC than the student’s cumulative grade prior to the EOC score or final exam grades being entered, then the EOC score will comprise 0.01 percent of the final grade. This will minimize any negative impact the EOC score would have on the child’s overall grade.

    Campus Messenger - Phase 4 - October 26th

    Phase 4

    Good afternoon, HCS High School Families,

    Yesterday during a special called meeting, the Henry County Board of Education moved forward with the final phase of our gradual return-to-campus plan. The original plan was shared at the beginning of September, and the first three phases of the plan have been enacted. Phase 4, the phase that would allow high school students choosing on-campus learning to return five days a week, was originally presented with an unknown start date.

    With health metrics continuing to be well below the threshold that was set to indicate unfavorable conditions in the county, the date of Monday, October 26 was adopted as the start date for Phase 4. This means high school students whose families chose on-campus learning during the selection window will now be able to return to campus five days a week.

    All families who chose to continue with remote learning will be able to remain in that learning environment.

    We are glad that conditions in our county allow for this latest transition to our final phase, and we look forward to seeing our on-campus-learning students back on our high school campuses for a full week.

    You will be receiving further communication from your school's respective principal soon with more details.

    If you would like to know more about the decision of the board of education, you can read the latest press release

    Our Pre-K through 8th-grade students are back on campus five days a week, while our high school students still remain on a split schedule as a part of Phase 3 of our return to on-campus learning plan. Strategic partnerships with healthcare officials in the community have helped in the development of a comprehensive Return-to-Campus playbook and protocols to ensure the safest of environments for our on-campus students.

    If you would like to know how a typical day would be for students returning to campus, check out this video.

    Have questions? You can reach out to your zoned school’s officials for answers and further clarification.

    We are excited to begin Phase 3 of our Return-to-Campus Plan tomorrow. As a reminder, remote learning students will continue as normal,
    but all Pre-K through 8th-grade students whose families chose for them to return to campus (and all self-contained special education program students)
    will be back on campus five days a week. For our 9th through 12th-grade on-campus students, you will still remain on a split schedule.
    Last names A through M will be on campus Monday and Tuesday, and be remote learners Wednesday through Friday. Last names N through Z will be on campus Thursday and Friday, but work remotely Monday through Wednesday.

    Second Round of On-Campus Returns for Phase 2

    Parents and Guardians,

    Tomorrow marks the #Second1stDayOfSchool for students returning to campus with a last name beginning with the letter N-Z.  For those completing their on-campus Phase 2 return on Monday and Tuesday, it was great to see you.  We created a little highlight video of the return, and hope our students coming back tomorrow and Friday will get a better picture of what to expect. Click Here

    To help us #KeepHenryHealthy, make sure you screen your children for any symptoms before sending them to school.  Here's a video from our district nurse, Amy Rivers. Click Here  We have also attached the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Screening Tool.

    And finally, make sure you check your bus transportation information by using the following link and entering your address to find bus stop times, numbers, and location.

    We look forward to continuing our Phase 2 Return-to-Campus plans tomorrow!  And for everyone not back on campus, we'll see you online!

    Student Home Health Screening Before Heading Off To School Each Day

    Parents and Guardians,

    We are thrilled to welcome our students who have selected in-person learning back to the building this week! In order to #KeepHenryHealthy, we need your help screening your child(ren) for symptoms of COVID-19 everyday before you send them off to school. Please build in a little time in the morning to check for the symptoms outlined on this communication from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. If your children have any of these symptoms, please do not send them to school and consult with your healthcare provider, as needed.
