Henry County Schools’ kindergarten program provides programs focused on the academic and social-emotional development of young children. It is designed to ensure that our youngest learners develop the essential foundational skills and concepts needed to become successful students. This program focuses on a standards-based curriculum that addresses language and literacy, Math, Social Studies and Science along with Fine Arts to include Art, Music and Physical Education.
The 2019-20 school year starts on August 1, 2019.
We are excited to start this journey with you!
Kindergarten students follow the same school calendar as all elementary schools. Your child will be expected to be in school for the entire instructional day. Regular school attendance in the kindergarten program is required. Attendance is closely monitored. If your child will be absent or tardy for any reason, please provide a written excuse upon the child’s return to school.

Allergies and Medical Information
Please inform your child’s teacher and the school clinic aide of any known food or medical allergies, or medical conditions. Parents/guardians must complete a medical form providing any important information needed to ensure that all medical needs are met in the event of an emergency.

If an adult is not present in the afternoon, your child will be returned to school.
