Week at a Glance - Updated 7/23/14
Colonel Home Blitz - In an attempt to increase face-to-face contact with parents, Henderson County High School will conduct our Colonel Home Blitz in a new way for sophomores, juniors and seniors. Advisory (PLT) teachers will call each home to set up an appointment. Parents and students will complete forms, pay fees and meet with the advisory/PLT teacher to pick up schedules on their designated day between Tuesday, July 29th and Thursday, July 31st. Schedules will not be issued until forms are completed, fees paid and parents meet with advisory/PLT teacher. For any household not reached by phone for an appointment and for any family who misses their appointment, a home visit by school staff will be made but schedules will not be available until the first day of school. If you have not been contacted by July 23rd, please call your child’s unit office to update contact information and schedule an appointment.

Each event will be conducted the same way. Please enter the grounds by the stadium access road closest to the Kangaroo station and park in the back lot of the high school on the evening of your child’s unit orientation. Please enter the building through the South entrance by the greenhouse and join us in the cafeteria between 5:30 and 6 p.m. We will start promptly at 6:00 in the cafeteria with a few comments for everyone; we will then keep parents for a parent meeting with administration while students meet with their advisory teachers and get their schedules. Please be prepared to fill out student emergency cards and forms and pay student book fees of $50. Advance copies of these forms are available on the Henderson County High School website. These forms can be printed and completed before this event so they can be just handed in at orientation. If you do not know what unit your freshman is assigned to, please call the high school between 8 and 4 for this information. We look forward to seeing you on the evening of your child’s unit orientation and to the beginning our successful high school experience together!
