HENRY, COUNTY- Henry County Schools has moved to Level 4 of the district’s 2021-2022 COVID-19 Management Plan & Continuum of Multi-Layered Mitigation Strategies. It happened after the school's recent briefing as well as consultation with Piedmont Henry officials, the Department of Public Health, Henry County government leaders, and the Henry County Emergency Management Agency.

The recent adjustment to district operations is based on updates on the latest health metrics that include a significant increase in the number of coronavirus cases in the county.

Prior to the beginning of the new school year, district officials had modified the Covid-19 playbooks from last school year. The playbook gave guidance about physical space adaptations as well as response protocols to coronavirus cases on the school.

“The leaders of our county meet regularly to discuss the current impacts of this pandemic on the vital operations and services of this county – healthcare, government, education, and emergency services. The most recent meeting consisted of some of the most concerning COVID-19 reports seen yet, and our schools are not immune from the accelerated rate of this virus in Henry County,” said Superintendent, Mary Elizabeth Davis.

Davis also said that one of their top priorities this year was to provide in-person learning for their students, but they have to do it safely. All information leading up to the start of the school year allowed them to open their campuses with masks being an option but strongly recommended. However, the metrics in their county had changed, and this added layer of prevention had to be made a requirement for their campuses at that time.
