Harrison Community Schools has kicked off Phase 1 of the 2018 bond project. As we progress throughout the project we will be updating our website on a regular basis to allow our community to see the progress we are making on the renovations and new construction.
Thank you again Harrison for “Stepping Up For Our Students”
Students, Parents, and Staff Welcome Back To School!
Harrison Community Schools will be welcoming students back for the 2018 – 2019 school year on Monday, September 10th. With the beginning of school new adventures are experienced for not only the students but for our staff and community. Again, like last year, I’m looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead and the excitement that starting a new school year brings.
On Tuesday, September 4th, the teaching staff will return for three days of intense professional development with all staff reporting on Wednesday, September 5th for our traditional opening day. As always, our major focus will be on student learning and implementing teaching strategies that improve classroom instruction.
This school year will be one of excitement and promise for our secondary students, parents, and staff. The newly renovated Harrison High School and Middle School will give our students a learning environment which will promote a quality academic setting while providing a safe and secure facility for our students. Sometime mid to late September we will be hosting an “Open House” of both facilities for the community. Please continue to follow the paper, school newsletters and our website for the date.
I would like to remind the community to visit our website at www.harrisonschools.com. There you can find many important features for the district and individual buildings including registration information, bussing, and food service. It is my sincere hope that this school year brings the most rewarding experience for all students, parents, and staff.

*ATTENTION PARENTS OF BUS STUDENTS*
Coming sooner than we may realize….
Harrison Community Schools begins after Labor Day this year. The 1st day of school is Monday, September 10th.The transportation department would like you to make note of a few very important factors: Your students need to be registered at the bus garage between July 30th and August 17th. Staff will be ready to have you fill out a registration form between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. If the bus number, driver name, pick up and/or drop off locations and times cannot be given during your visit, your driver will call you with the information within a few days. Routing cannot be done effectively if we are not aware of the needs of all riders.
