Henry County High School will have an open house from 5-6:30 p.m. on Thursday. The E Building entrance should be used.
Incoming 10th-grade parents and students are encouraged to attend.
Parent information sessions, especially for rising 10th-grade students and transfer students and parents will be available at 5 p.m. and 5:45 p.m. in the Little Theater.
Because of construction and teacher in-service, this is the only time available between now and the time school starts that students will have access to the hallways.
The first day of school will be from 8-11:30 a.m. on Friday. Attendance does count, and all classes will be on an abbreviated schedule.
All students should report to their homeroom classes when they arrive. The first full day of school will be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Aug. 6.
Beginning this year, students who arrive at school before 7:30 a.m. will be required to report to Patriot XL in the HCHS library.
Buses will not arrive before 7:30 a.m., and students who arrive between 7:30-7:45 a.m. will report to the cafeteria, since the gym is currently closed because of construction.
Students arriving between 7:45-8 a.m. may report to the cafeteria or may enter the E Building.
Breakfast will continue to be served at no cost to students in the cafeteria each morning.
Most students will ride the same buses they rode last year.
If you have moved or need bus information, please contact the Transportation Department at 642-5523 before the first day of school.
With construction going on at HCHS, there will be a few changes this year. The main entrance of HCHS will be at E Building, across from the field house. Parents and visitors to the campus should enter at this entrance.
Bus drop-off and pick-up will relocate to the A lot (typically teacher parking) on South Wilson Street. Car riders should be dropped off and picked up in C parking lot (tennis court).
For safety and congestion purposes, please do not use the A lot or the field house lot to drop off or pick up students.
“We appreciate your patience and understanding during the construction process,” HCHS Principal Michele Webb said.
