Parent Letter - March 19, 2020

Good afternoon,

 We have always focused on being a team at HES, and this is a time for us to shine.  We appreciate your grace and positivity as we wade through uncharted waters to assemble a non-traditional educational plan for your students. Our staff has been working diligently to make this a success.

 As the district communication stated, this morning, Henrietta ISD will remain closed until April 6.  Our plan is explained below.

Pick-up and Delivery of Instructional Materials and Requested Meals:

  1. We will have buses run their normal routes on Mondays, leaving the campus at 3:00 p.m. for the purpose of delivering requested meals, assignments, and picking up completed work.Buses will stop at homes and designated meeting points along their routes.In order to have home delivery, someone will need to be available to walk out to the bus to retrieve the meals and instructional packets.Stops will take longer than a normal bus route, so please bear with us on times.
  2. We are offering a second option for town students and for those who will not be able to meet a bus along their route.These families are welcome to take advantage of our drive-thru service on the east side of the high school cafeteria. This service will begin at 3:00 p.m. and end at 6:00 p.m. on Mondays.
  3. If you live on a bus route and will not be available to meet the bus, please contact Kendra Bennett at or 940-720-7910 ext. 2.
  4. If you would like to request meals, please email include the name of the child(ren).

 Instructional Details:

  1. You will be contacted by your child’s teacher with a plan for how they will deliver instruction to your child.
  2. A stakeholder survey has been emailed out. Please complete that so we have information about the best ways to continue instructional services. We will do our best to accommodate your needs.While many things will be offered electronically, there will be other options for those who need them.

 During this time, give yourself, your kids, and everyone some grace.  Your kid’s mental health is the most important thing.  How they feel during this time is what they will remember.  Our purpose in sending this is not to overwhelm you or create more anxiety.  Our intention is to give guidance and as much clarity as we can.

 Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.  We care, and we are here to support you and your children through this time.

Warm regards,

Kendra Bennett
