Body Safety

Indiana Senate Bill 355, which was passed in the spring 2017 state legislative session, requires all public schools in the state of Indiana to provide all students grades K-12 with child abuse and child sexual abuse prevention education. For more information, please click on the parent letter below.


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.
