Our district website is currently offline due to a networking outage. Other districts in our area are experiencing the same issue. Our ESD is aware of the problem and actively working to resolve it.

Dear Parents and Guardians, As a district, we have worked extremely hard to find ways for our students to be on campus while following the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance from Oregon Department of Education, ODE. The Harrisburg School District Administration understands we have families and students who are emotionally and mentally overwhelmed. If you need someone to talk with please contact our schools main office to connect with a school counselor or get help from the county. Since September 8, 2020, our elementary school has successfully used in person learning model for grades k-3. On Monday, December 7, we added grades 4-6 using the limited instruction model. Today we received new guidance from ODE allowing the schools who were meeting in-person under the “Safe Harbor Clause” that we may continue on Monday, January 4, 2021. This is great news as our primary students need to learn and master the basic skills in reading, writing and math. We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we navigate an unprecedented school year. I hope that our metrics begin decreasing in Linn County therefore allowing our school district to begin bringing more students back onto our campuses. Thank you for your support. Please continue to stay safe and use caution over the holidays by following the CDC guidelines of wearing a mask, washing your hands and social distancing. Merry Christmas Everyone!

Winter Week Fun!

Winter Week
We're excited to let you know that as a district we are currently in the process of implementing a fully-featured internet filtering system for our district-issued Chromebooks. As stated in our current student device agreement form (https://5il.co/e0tu), previously internet filtering outside of our district was not an option. Now it is, and our Chromebooks will be fully managed even outside of our district network. We also want to remind everyone to make every effort to take care of those devices. We have seen a significant increase in device damage and our repair costs are significant. It's critical that students practice responsible technology usage as stated in our acceptable use policy (https://5il.co/e0qf) and that parents encourage those practices.

Digital Citizenship Reminder: Harrisburg School District is pleased to have been able to provide take-home mobile devices for students during distance learning. Please remember that this device is intended for school-related activities only. Students are expected to follow the rules set forth in the district’s technology acceptable use policies (https://5il.co/e0qf) and the law when using the system. While the Harrisburg School District actively manages district-issued devices, take-home devices do not restrict internet content while outside the district’s network. Therefore, it is important for parents to monitor their child’s use of technology and reinforce positive digital citizenship practices. Thank you for your support!

Harrisburg School Update I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. As we work with the Linn County Health Department, we are pleased to announce that we will have k-3 grades back on campus as we were before the pause on Monday, December 7. The buildings are being sanitized thoroughly and our food service staff will be back to work on Monday, December 7. In addition, we plan to continue with our plan of bringing grades 4-6 back for limited instruction. This is for two hours each day with contact in only two different cohorts. Building principals will provide the specific details for each grade sometime this week. We must social distance, wear facemasks, wash our hands frequently and stay home if feeling sick. We will continue to do our part by working closely with our local health authority and following all ODE/OHA protocols. Thank you to everyone for your continued patience and support as we work together to safely bring back our students.

We will have to see how the Linn County metrics are tracking. Our food service department will shut down for the next two weeks. Our food service department will begin preparing meals on Monday, December 7. District staff will perform deep cleaning in school buildings and the kitchen as positive cases are rising in the community.

HHS Leadership Christmas Project
Hello Harrisburg High School Families, It is that time of year again and we are gearing up for Parent/Teacher Conferences. Normally conferences are in person ,but due to COVID restrictions we are forced to make them virtual this year. Conferences will also be a little bit earlier than normal as they will be on November 12th and November 13th. Conferences on Thursday, will begin at 8am and run until 8pm. and on Friday from 8am and run until 4pm. There will be an hour long lunch from 12pm-1pm and dinner breaks from 5pm-6pm. Here is the conference schedule: November 12th 8am - 12pm 1pm - 5 pm 6pm - 8pm Nov 13th 8am-12pm 1pm-4pm Teachers are going to post a “Conference” Zoom link in their classroom page on the Harrisburg High School website, along with a schedule of times that they will be available. You can find the teacher classrooms, but going to Explore on the HS website and then scrolling down until you see Classrooms. Since we are not scheduling times for parents to meet with teachers, you will need to join the specific teacher’s waiting room for the teacher to speak with you. Please be patient with this process, it is new to all of us. If you are unable to connect with all of the teachers during conferences then feel free to reach out to them individually and set up an alternative time to meet with them. Thank you for your continued support in making Comprehensive Distance Learning the best we can make it for all.
