On Feb. 3, the snow caused considerable headaches for many motorists. The timing of the snow and more of it than was forecast caused many parents to have concerns about the safety of their children while traveling home from school. I, like every employee of the Henry County Public Schools, make the safety of our children my number one priority each and every day. It gives me great comfort to know that the transportation staff performs their duties with a great amount of professionalism. I feel fortunate to have such dedicated, professional staff to transport our children home safely each and every day.

I would also like to thank County Judge-Executive John Logan Brent, Henry County Road Supervisor Glenn Baxter, State Highway Supervisor Terry Justice and the staffs of both the county and state road crews. Both road crews were very helpful in making the roads in our county as safe as possible for our buses and parents on their journeys home Tuesday afternoon, even escorting some of our buses down snowy roads. These folks rarely receive acknowledgement for the long hours and hard work that they do to make our roads safe during inclement winter weather. And lastly, thanks to the many parents who met the bus at the end of their roads to make our afternoon routes much more doable.

Henry County is a wonderful community in which to live, work and raise your family because of its helpful residents.
