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:
- Shirts or polos with collar – solid colors
- 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
