  • There is NO LEFT TURN when leaving the Harris parking lot during the hours of 2:30PM-3:00PM

  • Students cannot arrive on campus until 7:45 AM as there is NO School Supervision until this time. For the safety of your child, please be sure they are not left unattended.

  • Reminders: Parents will not be allowed inside the building without prior approval. Safety for our children must remain top priority.

  • Students will not be removed from their classrooms until parents arrive even if calling in advance.

  • The cut-off time to pull students out early is 2:35PM (1:35PM on Weds) If you arrive after this time to sign your child out, you will have to wait until the dismissal bell rings.

  • We understand life happens and there are times when you may be late after school to pick up your child. Please be sure to communicate with the front office if this should occur. Otherwise, we expect your child to be picked up on time as school ends promptly @ 2:55 PM (1:55PM on Weds) (11:55AM on half days)

What Does It Mean To Be A Title I School?

Title I is the largest federal aid program for public schools. Schools can be designated as “Title I” if certain criteria are met. Title I is the federal government’s commitment to closing the achievement gap between low-income and moderate to high income students. These funds are used to help all students meet academic standards. Click the links below to learn more!

How We Implement Title Funds at Harris

Hello! I am Ms. McCullough. I am one of the teachers that is funded by our Title I funds. I teach the ELL 4th through 6th grade students that speak English as their second language or the students whose main language in their homes is a language other than English. Half of my duties is to monitor students that have tested as proficient English speakers. I push into classrooms and work with these students to make sure they continue to thrive in their classrooms without any gaps that may be linked to their language.

I have been at Harris since 2018. I am a member of this community and I am very dedicated to our students and families. I am very happy and proud to be part of the Harris Hawk family!
