Welcome Back, Bulldogs!
Dear Henderson Bay High School Families,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome everyone to the 2020-2021 school year!
All of us here at Henderson Bay High School have been working hard to prepare for the return of our students and we are looking forward to another year of excellence. Our dedicated educators have been engaged in professional learning opportunities to keep their teaching skills honed, and our committed custodians have been meticulously cleaning and disinfecting our building. While we know this school year will be different than previous ones, it will not damper our spirits nor our dedication to provide the top-notch education our students deserve!
Students are scheduled to begin the 2020-2021 school year on September 8. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and as required by the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department, students will start the school year in a remote platform and come back to school for in-person learning as soon as possible using a dialed approach.
As done in previous years, families and students will have a couple of options for orientation. Our HBHS Orientation event will be held virtually this year and occur on two dates; Thursday, Sept 3 at 6:30 PM and Friday, Sept 4 at 9:00 AM. More information will be forthcoming. Please visit our webpage for supply lists, the school schedule, student meals, and other pertinent information.
Communication between home and school is critical, especially during a time when circumstances can change overnight. I will provide information to families via text, email, and our school webpage. To receive these updates, please ensure your information in the Parent Portal is accurate.
This school year will be a new journey for all of us, but please know that I am committed to keeping our students, staff, and families healthy and safe while we navigate through these unchartered waters together.
I look forward to a great year with you and your child!
Brian Tovey, Principal
