Beginning tomorrow, Monday, September 21st, our AM Kindergarten will be in class from 8:15 am - 11:00 am. Our PM Kindergarten will be in class from 11:50 am - 2:35 PM. First and Second Grades will be in class from 8:15 am - 2:35 pm. All of these grades, K-2, will be on-site, at school! Hooray! YES- we will have PE! YES- we will have LIBRARY! YES - we will have RECESS! We know everything will look and feel a little different but we have worked hard to create a new normal of exciting and engaging activities for your children when they are at school. PE will be held in the Middle School Gym just a short walk across our MPR room. Recess will be held in various spots around our HES property to ensure social distancing of the grade level cohorts. Library will be a traveling model. Students will get to choose a book weekly; however it will remain at school due to the COVID-19 requirements. We are following all the guidelines so that students can be in school, stay safe and be learning every day! Watch for photos on Facebook tomorrow!

How will ODE’s Graduation guidance impact college admissions? A: The Oregon public universities are committed to ensuring that new students who intend to enroll at our institutions are considered fairly in light of the educational interruption they have endured. No student admitted to our institutions for fall 2020 will have their admission rescinded due to changes in grading policy or the inability to complete their coursework, so long as they still graduate. Students who apply to our institutions are still subject to a review process that focuses on one's ability to succeed in college, but now recognizes that some situations are beyond their control.

Grading during Distance Learning Recently, Oregon Department of Education (ODE) provided guidance around grading during the Distance Learning for All,(DL4A) for grades 9-11. Harrisburg School District made the decision to move to a Pass/No Pass/Incomplete system for grades 3-11. This holds students current GPA’s harmless during this closure. The teachers will determine grades of Pass/No pass/ Incomplete based on the staff interaction with students and work completed. Teachers are tracking their students who participate during the connection times and work completed.

The governor's executive order gave five stipulations for school districts to do in order to receive state school funding. One of those is to continue paying employees through the closure. We are looking into having staff perform painting and possibly other maintenance items around the district while following social distancing guidelines. We are planning to have classified staff work with teachers and be available for phone calls, paper packet copying and collating each week.
