Henderson County School’s Mental Health Counselors want to make sure that students and parents have the ability to get a hold of them beyond email.  They are available from 9-2 one day a week throughout the summer and are also passing out “Grab & Go” activity packets on Thursdays from 10-1 at East Heights, Jefferson, and Bend Gate elementary schools while “Grab and Go” meals are provided by Henderson County Schools Child Nutrition Services.
