Harris Weekly Update

Schools Remain Closed This Week

FREE School Supplies!

We would like to thank all of our amazing parents/guardians for working so hard to ensure your students are logging into their google classrooms everyday. We wouldn't be able to do this without your support! To show our appreciation, teachers will be handing out FREE school supplies on Monday, April 27 from 12:00-1:00 PM, to the first 150 students. To receive your FREE bag of school supplies, drive into our parent pick up/drop off area. Teachers will bring the supplies to you! Remember, this is on a first come, first serve basis. We look forward to seeing you on Monday!

We are in the process of planning for the 2020 – 2021 school year. Our office needs to know if your child will NOT be attending Harris Elementary next year. This information will help us project our staffing needs and prepare our records for a smooth transition for you and your child.
