Happy New Year! I hope you each had a restful and joyful holiday season with your family and friends.
As we prepare for the next COVID surge, we have a variety of safety protocols in place here at Henry such as being a vaccination and testing site. We require masking for all students and staff indoors and outdoors and our custodial crew clean each room with COVID sanitizing protocols. We are working with district staff to adapt our safety standards and remain responsive to the changing conditions of the pandemic.
For a list of vaccine centers near you, please go to http://myturn.ca.gov/. If you cannot find a vaccine center near you, contact your primary care provider or health office. We are nearing the end of the first semester. In order to support all students, we offer Academic Labs (Tutoring Sessions) for students Mondays-Thursdays from 3:30-4:30 p.m. in the Library. Any student can access these Academic Labs to get support from our teachers and students from our Link Crew.
We are beginning to plan for our next school year by meeting with students and parents about courses to enroll in for the 2022-23 school year. We will share information with students via English and History classes.
On behalf of the Patrick Henry High School Faculty, we want to thank you for being our partner in education so we can ensure all students graduate with integrity, purpose, and options.
Congratulations to The Henry NJROTC for qualifying for the State Championship. The super bowl will take place in February 2022 with only two schools from Area 11 being able to qualify for the National Championship in Pensacola, Fla.
LADY PATRIOTS LACROSSE
The Lady Patriots Lacrosse Program would like to host a “Middle School Night” for our home game on Feb 23 at 7 p.m. vs OLP. We are welcoming any and all community families to come watch our game against OLP that night. We are attempting to continue to grow the interest in the neighborhood in the program going forward. We encourage all the community to attend any of our home games throughout the season and cheer us on as we continue to build the program. Having been on a steady rise with a CIF Championship in 2019, the Lady Patriots were one of the top eight teams in San Diego County last year. This is an exciting time to be a member of the Lady Patriots Lacrosse team and we hope to continue that growth for years to come.
