End of Year Awards

This year, our end-of-year student award will occur in your child's classroom as part of the year end celebrations. Your child's teacher will share with your more info about how they are celebrating student success this year.

Student Technology

This year, we will collect all student devices and service them over the summer so that they can receive maintenance. Students will stop sending devices home on Thursday, May 20. Please return all school issued chargers to Harris as well.

Last Student Day

It is hard to believe, but we are nearing the end of this school year. We are so proud that we have been able to enjoy onsite learning with your children. You have been amazing partners in education during unusual times. As a reminder, our last student day is Thursday, May 27.

COVID19

Thank you for continuing to be diligent in your efforts to keep your family and other Harris students healthy and safe. Please self screen at home and be sure that you don't send a sick child to school this year. In addition, if any member of your household has a pending COVID-19 test, you should not send your child to school until the results of that test return negative. Thanks for helping us slow the spread at this difficult time of year.
