Principal's Message

Dear Henry Families,


We wish all of our Henry Hawk Dads a Happy Father's Day. We also wish everyone a Happy Summer Break. Thank you for your flexibility working with your child during these last few months with remote learning. We appreciate all of our Henry Hawk Parents for supporting your child's education.


We don't know what the 2020-2021 school year will look like yet, but we will keep you updated once we get more information. Tomorrow will be the teachers' last day of the 2019-2020 school year where they will be working on their planning for next year. We thank all of our teachers for working with our Henry students during remote learning.


That being said, here are some few updates for the summer:


  • Summer Office Hours: Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
  • Food Distribution: Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
  • Report Cards: sent by CPS by mail later this week.
  • Summer Learning: Students with an incomplete in reading and/or math will be contacted by administration to attend Summer Learning. CPS Summer Learning will take place from July 20th - August 14th. Please note, this will be remote learning.
  • We will continue to update you throughout the summer. Our next Henry Hawk News will be in July.


Have a great summer break!


Principal Gutierrez
