Henry County Schools End to 2019-20
and Preparations for 2020-21
Henry County Schools concluded Remote Learning for seniors on Friday, May 8, and for all students on Friday, May 15. The end to the school year was not what anyone envisioned, but our students, staff, families, community, and board of education provided the right support and made all the right adjustments to successfully end the school year.
As we know many people are wondering what lies ahead for the 2020-21 school year, know that our district leadership team, including Superintendent Davis and her Executive Emergency Response Team, continues to be in constant contact and consultation with Henry County Emergency Management Agency officials and Georgia Department of Public Health Officials to get the latest updates on COVID-19's impact in our area.
The district leadership team has also been planning for the upcoming school year long before the pandemic occurred. We begin planning for the following school year, each year, not long after a new school year has started.
Understandably, our planning for the 2020-21 school year shifted back when schools were closed and has been adjusted to account for different scenarios that could occur based on the pandemic's progress or recession, guidance from state/national government and health officials, and input from our parents and community.
Above all else, the safety and well-being of our students and staff remain our top priorities, and decisions will be made with that priority at the top of our list of considerations.
Stay tuned to our website for updates throughout the summer as we continue to take proactive steps to ensure a successful start to the upcoming school year.
**As always, please utilize the guidance by CDC to help prevent the spread of common germs and viruses:
- Wash hands frequently
