Schools and Departments Closed Updates

Dear Hendry County School District Families and Employees,

Based on the recommendation from the Governor of Florida, distance learning in Hendry County will continue through the end of the school year. This step is necessary in order for us to continue doing our part in stopping the spread of COVID-19.  The safety and health of our students, employees, and families remains our top priority and we will continue providing services including online learning and meals for students. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.

Sincerely,
