Henderson County Schools to close Friday, Jan. 8

Announcement from Henderson County Public Schools:

Based on the National Weather Service forecast calling for an overnight accumulation of snow in our area this evening and potentially hazardous travel conditions tomorrow, Henderson County Public Schools will be closed for all students and staff tomorrow, January 8, 2021.  It is an Annual Leave day for staff.

We realize our current operation under Plan C means that many students are equipped to attend class remotely. However, the likelihood of power outages across our community and potentially hazardous travel conditions remain for our teachers who teach from their classrooms – where they can provide the most robust instruction with access to the district’s reliable technology infrastructure and their current teaching materials.

Therefore, Henderson County Public Schools will be closed for all students and staff tomorrow, January 8. We encourage our families to enjoy this first snow day of 2021!
