Henderson County Schools
May 2018- CONNECT Newsletter
It’s only appropriate that the week set aside to appreciate our teachers and staff occurs just a short time before high school graduation. From the time our students start pre-school until they receive their diplomas, their lives are forever changed by special teachers and staff who inspire them and motivate them. They play a key role in helping our students navigate their journey from childhood to adulthood.
Each year, we hear stories of students who have success despite seemingly insurmountable odds. Standing behind every one of those stories is a teacher or staff member who was committed to making a difference. I see the difference our staff is making firsthand when I visit classrooms and schools.
The time our teachers and staff put into their profession, their classroom, their school, and their students is greatly appreciated. Thank you, HCS Teachers and Staff. You inspire and change lives.

ALL students (preschool - high school) must complete an online registration for the 2018-19 school year.
The primary parent/guardian of CURRENTLY enrolled students must log into their Infinite Campus Parent Portal account to complete online registration for all students in the household, including preschool and kindergarten or any student new to the household.
Any primary parent/guardian of a student NEW to Henderson County Schools, meaning the primary parent/guardian has never had an Infinite Campus Parent Portal account, must go to the local school to complete registration and provide required new student forms.
Middle school families with district-provided Chromebooks may use that device for online registration. Students must login to the Chromebook with their district provided login account. Parents must then login to the Infinite Campus Parent Portal with their parent account login to complete the registration process.
