McDONOUGH — There may be a light at the end of the tunnel for families who became teachers overnight in Henry County.

Henry County Schools Superintendent Mary Elizabeth Davis said Friday evening the district is currently planning to return to normal operations on Monday, April 13. Spring break will take place April 6-10.

Davis said as the date approaches, “we will use the guidance of state leaders and health officials to determine if that return date remains feasible.”

Davis also thanked families and students for their work during the sudden move to remote learning.

“Despite all odds, this has been an incredible week of success for our community,” she said. “I have been inspired time and time again while witnessing the work that has been accomplished by all of our families, students and employees this week.”

If the virus has not peaked and the country doesn't have a handle on the outbreak, then it would be prudent to close schools for the remainder of the year or continue with distant learning in order to protect our vulnerable population, some of whom have wife's, husbands and children which still live with their parents, working for the school system. Social distancing must remain and cannot be compromised by allowing classrooms to open.
