Harrison Park Weekly Update

Welcome Back!

Welcome Back HP students and families!

The start of school is fast approaching.

Below you will find dates and schedules for the opening of school. Starting on September 1st (grades 1st-8th), your child will be back to a regular schedule, reconnecting with friends, spending time in classes and getting to know new teachers.

We look forward to welcoming our new and returning families and hope that everyone can join us on Monday, August 30th for our Back to School Night from 6-7:30pm.

Communication and involvement is extremely important to us at Harrison Park. PLEASE be sure to check our school website at https://www.pps.net/Domain/122. As well as “Like” us on our Harrison Park K-8 Facebook page. All updates, current events and opportunities for you to get involved in our school community will be posted on these sites. Our Parent/Student handbook can also be found on the website.

Your child’s timely arrival at school is important so that instructional activities can begin promptly. Due to current COVID protocols visitors are only allowed in the building by appointment only and with a mask.

We will have new pick up and drop off sites for you and your child.
