Harrison Herald


Weekly Update

We began taking our Illinois Assessment of Readiness tests in grades 3-8. We have noticed that many students aren't charging their Chromebooks. Any reminders that you can give would be great!

Our Springfield trip was absolutely amazing. The students represented Harrison well. It was awesome to see them outside of the traditional four walls! There were so many good questions and learning opportunities. It didn't rain on us too bad either!

Don't forget that we have student led conferences today! Our students are doing great things. Encourage them to show you!

Wednesday, April 20 is an Early Release Day!

COVID Update

As we continue to navigate out of the COVID pandemic, it is important that we're all still doing our part to keep each other safe. We will be treating COVID as one of the infectious viruses that can be found in schools, but we still need your help. If your child does not feel well, please keep him/her home. If your child is exhibiting any of the symptoms below, it is highly recommended that you take your child for a COVID test. When a COVID case is reported to the school, we will send home a letter to the grade level notifying parents that there is an active case (similar to strep, chicken pox, etc. letters). We truly appreciate your support over the last two years, and we're excited to be on the other side of the pandemic.

COVID Symptoms

Fever or chills


Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing


Muscle or body aches


New loss of taste or smell

Sore throat

Congestion or runny nose

Nausea or vomiting
