Dear Parents and Guardians,


Welcome to the new school year! As we look forward to a great year, listed is important information for students and families. The first day of school for students is Monday, August 30, 2021. As we welcome students back for in-person learning, it is important to reinforce the importance of students being in school each day and on time. School hours and the instructional day for students is:


  • High Schools - 7:45 a.m. – 2:45 p.m.
  • Middle Schools – 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

*Please note: Cougar Academy and HVLA will follow the middle school hours

  • Elementary Schools - 8:50 a.m. – 3:50 p.m.



During this year we will continue with our current uniform policy for students in grades K-12. Students are asked to wear the following:

  • Tops
    • Shirts or polos with collar – solid colors
  • Bottoms
    • Pants – tan, dark blue, black or gray
    • Skirts – tan, dark blue, black or gray - knee or ankle length
    • Jumpers – tan, dark blue, black, or gray - knee length
  • To ensure safety, students are NOT to wear flipflops


Additional information regarding uniforms may be found on the District and each school’s website.


            I look forward to a positive school year and working together with parents and guardians to make great things happen for the students of the Harrisburg School District.





Mr. Eric Turman
