School Calendar Change
Harrison Community Schools would like to thank those who participated in our survey to add April 19th as a day of instruction.
In an attempt to find the best way to make up days which have been cancelled due to this unprecedented winter weather, Harrison Community Schools asked for parent/guardian input.
From the response, with 82% in favor, Harrison Community Schools will add April 19th, as a half day of school.
As of today, the State Legislators have not come to an agreement if further relief will be given other than the current law which allows for six days of forgiveness due to conditions not within the control of school authorities and three additional wavier days which must be approved by the State Superintendent. A total of 9 days. Harrison has applied and been approved this past Monday for the wavier. With 18 closures to date we are required to makeup 9 days.
By adding February 15th last month and now April 19th, we will reduce the number of makeup days in June from 9 to 7 barring no other closures or changes to the law.
