The City of Henderson just released their “Resident Recovery Grants”. Residents financially impacted by COVID-19 can complete one application to receive a grant for utilities assistance, childcare costs, and the cost of internet services for education. The link for the application and website are listed below. Applicants must be residents of the City of Henderson and funds are paid directly to the resident and it is taxable so they will be required to complete a W-9.
(1) Resident Recovery Grants:
In addition to this assistance Henderson also has a housing assistance program to help with rent/mortgage payments. The program allows for payment of rent, mortgage, and utilities arrears back to March 1, 2020, as well as utility deposits, security deposits and emergency lodging. Payments for services are made directly to a landlord, mortgage company and/or utility company.
(2) Housing Assistance:
Also for families who need childcare and/or remote learning assistance we also are running our full day childcare/distance learning program – Battle Born Kids/Teens. In this program students are provided with time and space to participate in distance learning and parents receive a log at the end of each day that outlines what their child completed and what may still need to be completed at home. The program is $20/day and the registration link is below:
(3) Childcare and Remote Learning Assistance:

We are asking anyone interested in participating in school athletics this year to complete the Sports Interest Form for your corresponding grade level (Elementary/Middle School/High School). If you have more than one student at Sloan Canyon we would ask that you complete a form for each student athlete. Your responses will give us as athletic administrators a better understanding of the sports students are interested in and what teams/sports we may be able to offer as restrictions are lifted. In order to have a team we must have enough athletes to fill a complete roster.
At this time there is little change in the proposed schedule sent out from NIAA for High School Athletics. The only changes that were made was to allow for first contests in each sport to occur one day earlier. This is conditional to minimum practice regulations being met.
At this time there has been no new correspondence from NCSAA regarding athletics for K-8 grade. We will notify our families when updates are given.
As previously mentioned in our past correspondence, all state and local guidelines will be followed as we plan for return to athletics as restitution are lifted. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we prepare for athletics to return to Sloan Canyon.
