Harrison Park Weekly Update

September 7, 2021

Nuts and Bolts

Thank you for sharing your students with us! Our first week we are always working on fine tuning our systems and we appreciate your patience during this time. We enjoyed seeing our students back in the building smiling through their masks and so excited to learn.

A few things to remember:

1. Middle school hours are from 8:45-3:15. Students enter and exit through the back doors. Doors open at 8:38am and will be closed at 8:55am. Students who arrive after 8:55am will need to enter through the main doors. We strongly encourage you to use 85th Ave. for drop off and pick up.

2. Kindergarten students will enter through the library doors (between the cafeteria and main entrance) at 8:53am. They will exit through the cafeteria doors at 3:05pm.

3. 1st-3rd grade students will enter at the gym doors at 8:53am. At dismissal students who have an exterior door (Whitmore and Dunn) will be release from their classrooms. Other students will be released from the gym doors and lined up by their teachers sign.

4. 4th-5th grade students will enter and exit through the main doors. Doors open at 8:53am.

5. Please be mindful of drop off and pick up times and watching for students who may be crossing the street. Also, please do not park in front of fire hydrants, no parking signs, designated bus area, yellow curbs or neighbors driveways.

Once again thank you so much for collaboration on getting through this first week. We appreciate all of you.
