Home Learning Opportunities
During COVID-19 Closure
Teachers and staff have been working hard to continue to provide ways for students to remain engaged in instruction during school closures due to the COVID-19 emergency. To help parents and students, we have put all of the school's individual plans for continuing instruction under the heading "Home Learning Opportunities". Click "Read More" below to find out how your school is connecting with your child to continue instruction during these difficult times.
PBS OFFERS DAILY CONTENT FOR STUDENTS
The department is thrilled to announce we have a new partnership with the state’s PBS stations to deliver daily instructional content for Tennessee students. Starting April 6 will deliver two hours of programming with high-quality instructional content from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. CST. Four hours of content will also be streamed overnight, which viewers can watch live or record.
Free Early Education to Families
The Tennessee Department of Education and Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation (GELF) announced a statewide partnership with ReadyRosie, an early education online platform, to provide short videos and free resources with simple, engaging activities for Tennessee families and children, ages birth through 3rd grade, to do at home.
Our schools' focus must be on learning and the child. Without question the greatest goal, and challenge, is to promote student achievement and development. In our communities, you will find wonderful students and parents. In our school system, you will find teachers, staff, administrators, and school board members who are highly skilled, enthusiastic, and dedicated to student learning and success.
The Humphreys County School System continues to provide excellent learning opportunities for our students as we prepare them for the challenges of the 21st century. Our educational programs are always growing and constantly improving. Our instructional methods must be subject to ongoing self-scrutiny. The words pride, safety, respect, responsibility, fairness, trustworthiness, caring and citizenship should be what Humphreys County Schools stand for as a district. The words must be a message to our community and all who pass by that something great and important is happening in our schools.
