Health & Safety Plan

Health and Safety Plan Update

 Dear Harrisburg School District Parents, Guardians, and Families:

We are excited to welcome all Pre-K through 12th grade students and staff back to school for in-person learning. Please note, all adults and students will be required to wear face masks while inside of Harrisburg School District buildings. Vaccinated teachers can substitute a shield instead of a mask when providing instruction. Students will have mask breaks while eating and outdoors. For outdoor sporting events at Severance Field, masks are optional, but recommended. As a District, we will continue our commitment to promote safety and mitigate risks associated with the spread of COVID-19.

In addition to the District's mask policy, Governor Tom Wolf and the Pennsylvania Department of Health recently announced a MASK MANDATE ORDER, which requires masks to be worn inside all school buildings, early learning programs and child care providers. The order takes effect 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 7, 2021. Click here for details and resource information
