Dear Henry-Senachwine Families:

Please review the updates below.

COVID-19 Case Updates:

With the intention of keeping you informed regarding COVID-19 cases that emerge in the District, we plan to provide you with updates as positive cases are reported to us.  

The administration has been informed that two individuals at Henry-Senachwine Grade & Junior High School have tested positive for COVID-19.

As a reminder, when a positive COVID-19 case is reported, the administration works in conjunction with the health department to contact individuals who have been in close contact with a positive COVID-19 case. 

Also, a reminder to  parents/guardians that if any of your  children have symptoms, all the siblings have to stay home until the symptomatic student has a negative covid test.  You can get a rapid covid test by calling the Marshall County Health Department and scheduling an appointment.  The Marshall County Health Department phone number is 309-246-8074.
