Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year at Essex High School, the pride and joy of Tappahannock. The administrative team along with many teachers and staff have been diligently working this summer, to prepare for our Essex Trojans. We want this to be a great year as we chase excellence! We are hoping this newsletter will provide you with the essential information that you need during this busy but exciting time. We have done the following:

  1. Updated our Essex High School Website - we have provided additional links which will provide you with lots of information. You will be able to access our School Quality Profile through the Parent/Student tab on the Essex High School website and through the Virginia Department of Education website. Be sure to take a look at the Administration's team "WHY"!

  2. Welcomed three (3) new members to our learning community: Ms. Andrea Sinclair, and Ms. Shanequa Holden, English teachers; Mr. George Page, Chemistry and Anatomy.

  3. Principal’s Teas- I will be conducting these chat sessions throughout the year, and all of them are listed in the newsletter. Each Principal’s Tea will give you an opportunity to enjoy a cup of tea, ask me questions, and learn more about EHS. Each session will be focused on a certain topic.

  4. An intentional focus on cultivating a school culture that strongly promotes academic excellence. I look forward to meeting you and our new students.

Educationally yours,

Damean Barfield
