The Henry County School Board has announced that Henry County High School will reopen this fall.
It will be the first school to reopen in North High School since the district moved out of the city in January of 2018.
North High had closed on April 4th of this year.
The school board said it will offer the students a free summer course in math and science.
“We are thrilled to welcome Henry County to our district,” board chair Steve Dorsch told Ars.
“Henry County High is an iconic school, and it’s an exciting time for our community.”
The Henry High School reopened to students on March 23rd, 2018, but the district has not yet opened the school to students.
Dorsk said that after many months of discussions, it was determined that the best way to continue to provide an exceptional education for our students is to open Henry High in 2019.
Henry High has a full year of instruction planned.
It was announced that students from North High will not be able to take the free summer courses.
North is located in north Henry County, which is a mostly rural area in northeastern Pennsylvania.
The Henry School Board plans to continue the North High program and open North High to students this fall, but only after the district moves into a new building, Dorsky said.
“It’s a tough decision to make, but North High is our school, it’s a beloved institution and we’ll be welcoming students to Henry County for the 2019-20 school year,” he said.
North will be closed from March 27th to April 3rd and will have a new staff member for the 2018-19 school year.
Henry County will have to move into a building at a nearby facility.
The schools were closed on March 18th, 2018.
