District calendar adjustment Dear Parents and Guardians, I would like to extend a most sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of you for partnering with the school staff by bringing your children to school ready to learn while following the health protocols. Last year we were one of the few districts that had an elementary school open its doors on the first day of school, and stay open throughout the year. Our middle school was also one of a very few schools to welcome students back for full in-person days. Our high school, as well, had opened its doors to part time days for all students. During this time we didn’t have a single outbreak. All of us made major sacrifices and pivots to make sure that our students were safe and getting the best education available to them. We all worked extremely hard. This year, however, has been different. At the beginning of August we were forced to adapt to new mask mandates which created much controversy in our community. As cases began to rise we had many students who were forced to quarantine and every staff member stepped up and made sure that our quarantined students still had access to their education through online learning and packets being sent home. We are now beginning to see students experiencing learning loss and struggles behaving in the classroom. Many of our staff are working much harder and longer to compensate for the loss of learning by meeting with students virtually and creating packets. Staff shortages are creating a hardship on teachers and principals as they cover classes. In many ways our staff is working longer and harder and this year is proving to be much more difficult than last year. The school board voted last night to give staff a much needed work day and an extra day off during Thanksgiving week. Many districts in our region, and across the state, are providing staff with a much needed break. At the school board meeting on November 8th, I recommended to the school board that Monday, November 22nd be a non-student contact work day and that November 23rd be a paid day off for all staff. The school board voted unanimously in favor of this recommendation. Please note your children do not come to school the week of November 22nd so your families may enjoy time with family and friends during Thanksgiving. The board and district administrators want to recognize the great work all of our staff are doing and have done the past three months. Hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and celebrate all we have to be thankful for in this school district and community.

Dear Harrisburg Families, Our Summer Enrichment Camp, for students who received an invitation, is very close! For students entering the 2021-2022 school year in grades 3-5 your summer camp will be July 26-30 from 8:00-11:30 each day. Students entering grades 6-8 will have their camp the following week on August 2-6. We will provide breakfast for those who need it from 8:00-8:15. Our first session will run from 8:15-9:30 where students will then get a fifteen minute recess before going to their second session of the day. That session will be 9:50-11:05. From there we will provide a lunch until 11:25. If your student does not need a lunch please feel free to pick them up at 11:05. Pick-up and Drop off location: Students who are not riding the bus can be dropped off and picked up outside the middle school near the front entrance. There will be signs posted and staff visible so you will know where to leave your student. If your child needs breakfast we will escort them to where breakfast is being served. Childcare: If your camper is in need of childcare once the two sessions have ended please email Mr. Jarman at: so we can get an idea of how many students. Please know that the childcare hours end at 3:30 each day. Students who are in the childcare program will be engaging in fun activities and will receive a snack, as well. Again, please email Mr. Jarman if you will be requiring this service after camp.

The Southern Linn Youth Services Team thanks the Siletz  Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund for their donation of $3106 for the 20-21 school year. It was their generosity that allowed the team to provide financial assistance to students and families in the Southern Linn region. Without the financial support of the STCCF our team could not have helped these families during this difficult school year.

Dear Harrisburg Community, Last week we received new information relating to students wearing masks while at school, school athletic events, and extracurricular activities. It is important to know that these new guidelines are optional and do not have to be implemented by school districts. Harrisburg School District leadership has met and decided to adopt the following change to students wearing masks: Harrisburg School District staff, at their discretion, will allow students to remove their masks during supervised outdoor activities such as outdoor PE and recess. Students will still be required to wear masks while on campus and in classrooms and will still be required to maintain social distancing at all times. Thank you for partnering with us as we complete a very challenging school year. We are in the final few weeks of school and will finish EAGLE strong.
