Dear Harrisburg School District Families, We are happy to announce that we have purchased Go Guardian, an internet security software that will protect and safeguard your children while they are using district issued equipment. Go Guardian protects students by limiting the websites they can access and allows their teachers to see what websites they have been accessing while using district issued chromebooks and while on the school district’s network. There are also many internet security threats that exist and Go Guardian is how we protect our students from those threats, as well. However, due to the nature of the protection that Go Guardian provides us, and that we have it installed on every district issued chromebook we are unable to allow students to bring their own personal chromebook, laptop, or iPad to school. Additionally, we would like all Harrisburg School District (HSD) students to use HSD devices while on campus as a way to maintain equity of education while here. Each school has apps and websites that teachers and students can use at any point during the day. All district devices have been set-up to ensure that all students have equal access to the apps that pertain to them. This way we can ensure that all students have the exact same access to the educational processes that teachers are providing. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our technology coordinator, Paul Lambert at email@example.com. Thank you for your understanding on this matter.
The high school announcements are back!! They will be published once a week for the time being. See the below link for this week's announcements https://5il.co/olms

Harrisburg High School students are involved with this group and were involved in making the below flyer. Linn County STAND (Students Taking Action Not Drinking) is a group of high school students from throughout Linn County working to enhance positive school climate through media campaigns and activities that address underage drinking, tobacco use and mental wellness. Please see the flyer for more information https://5il.co/o0i0
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!
Dear Harrisburg Families, I wanted to update you on some positive changes and deadlines as we approach the end of the first semester. Please take a moment to review these changes and share them with your student(s). Second Semester Changes: In order to make a smooth transition with limited disruption for students back into in-person learning we will need to make some changes to the schedule for the second semester. Our goal is to create a schedule that works under our current distance learning model, and works for a hybrid model that allows all students back on campus daily while reducing the amount of courses that students have to focus on at one time . At the beginning of the second semester (Feb. 1st) the following changes will take place: -Students will take only 3-4 classes per quarter. The majority of classes will meet twice daily (with teachers) for 45 minutes. This will provide 90 minutes of daily instruction with teachers for each course. -Students will earn .5 credits per quarter for these classes. -Students should be scheduled for 2 core classes (Math, English, Science, Social Studies) and 1-2 elective classes for each quarter. Example schedule: Quarter3: Math, Science, Art. Quarter 4:English, Social Studies, Welding 1. (This schedule would earn a total of 3 credits for the second semester) -Student cohorts will be divided into groups that link them with other students that are taking similar courses. Schedules will be determined by the school based on current courses and cohort requirements -There will be a few courses that will continue meeting daily for 45 minutes for the entire second semester (mainly college-now, AP courses, and band) These courses will earn .25 credits per quarter. Again, for a successful return for all students to have an opportunity to return to campus each day we need to see a drop below 100 cases per 100k people in Linn county over a two week period. As stated above, we will need to implement this schedule at the semester as it is the best fit for the requirements connected to the hybrid learning model. This model will allow us to immediately return students for classes when the numbers drop. Missing Assignments form Quarter 1 and Quarter 2: Any past due or incomplete assignments from the first or second quarter will need to be completed and turned in no later than Friday January 8th, 2021. By establishing this date the thought is that this would provide students the opportunity to complete missing work during the holiday break, and establish a deadline that motivates students to do so. It also would ensure time for grading and feedback to take place before the end of the semester which is January 28th. I have asked teachers to focus the last couple of weeks of the first semester on large culminating projects in lieu of our traditional finals. Thank you again for your continued support, and know that our goal is get students back on campus as soon as it is possible. Sincerely, Josh Stauber, Principal Harrisburg High School
The Harrisburg Key Club at Harrisburg High School and Food 4 Home have decided to help families through these tough times. We realize that for some families it is tough enough to “get by” month to month, and the holiday season only adds additional expense. We want to offer families assistance so that the long break does not create additional challenges. Please click on the below links for both English and Spanish versions of this letter. Please fill out the form and return to the HS ASAP. https://5il.co/noua English version https://5il.co/noub Spanish version
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!

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.

Harrisburg High School 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.
Just another reminder High School picture day is this Friday November 13th from 10am-6pm. You can pick up an order form at the office or go on life touches website and use the picture ID code: EVTDFV8D7. Students must enter the north doors by the gym wearing masks and keeping 6 feet apart. Pictures are in the gym one at a time, you only may take your mask off when the photographer says it is okay. When done you will exit out the south doors.

Wanting to get some information out to parents about grades. Progress reports have gone out and you should be receiving them soon. With distance learning this year it has been decided that we will continue to collect work from students assigned during 1st quarter, 1st and 2nd quarter assignments can be turned in until the end of the semester one which is January 28th. Because of this there is a possibility that you will see a different grade in the wazzle gradebook than what you see on the progress report. Also if your child received a summer packet for classes they got an incomplete on from last spring they can still turn those in to the office when completed and get credit for those classes. Summer work can be placed in the mail box out front by the gate or dropped of in the office. If you have any questions please call the front office. Thank you, Kim Kahle

First four weeks It is hard to believe we are completing four weeks of school in the 2020-21 school year. Our elementary school has grades k-3 meeting on campus for in person learning. Principal Geddes and team have done an amazing job following all of the ODE guidelines for health and safety purposes. Students and staff all wear facial coverings and follow social distancing as much as possible. Recesses are set up uniquely in order to comply with limiting the cohort mingling. Our food service department provides meals in the hallway, so students can eat in their classrooms and sanitation stations are located at every entrance. Our custodians are busy wiping surfaces, door handles and empting garbage cans. They have a restroom system in place that only allows 2 people at a time in the restroom, room capacity signs posted outside every room. As a reminder to our parents and guardians, as you come onto campus to pick up your son/daughter or drop off, please practice social distancing and wear a facial covering. Our success is the Harrisburg community’s success and in order for us to stay open for in person learning, we must continue practicing the safe practices recommended by the CDC. The good news is we remain student and staff free of any positive COVID-19 cases. In the Harrisburg School District, we have a wonderful staff of caring and professional individuals. It will take all of us working together in order to provide a healthy and safe place for our children to learn and grow. If you have questions or concerns please call me at 541-995-6626.

Thank you to everyone that has been patient with us as we continue to work hard to make distance learning as engaging and productive as possible. Our goal is to provide an online education that looks vastly different then last Spring by utilizing a new learning management system called Canvas. Unfortunately this has come with many unforeseen challenges that were out of our control. Rest assured that we are working closely with the Canvas implementation team, and our local ESD to overcome these. Understand that our staff will be very flexible and patient with students and families as we all become familiar with this new format of learning. It appears that we are very close to having things up and running and ask for your understanding as we iron out the details. With that being said, your student should receive an email that contains a Zoom link from each of their teachers prior to classes starting tomorrow. If we are unable to hold classes tomorrow because of the air quality and encroaching fires then this link will still work when we do get underway. Thanks again for your understanding and continued patience.
HS Families- Canvas is up and running. Please follow these important steps for your students to be able to login to Canvas. 1. Click on the Canvas Login link on the HS website. There is a button on the picture next to the Registar and FamilyID buttons. 2. This brings you to the Canvas login page. Your student needs to click on the Forget Password link. 3. Your student needs to enter their school email address and click on the Reset Password link. It may take up to 30 mins to receive an email from Canvas. 4. Once the email is received your student will be asked to reset their password. Once your student is able to login in to Canvas, they may not be able to see their classes. Canvas is still loading the courses and students.
HS families, we are still experiencing some issues with Canvas and logins for students. We hope to have that resolved soon. Stay tuned for updates. Thank you for your patience.
Due to air quality, the High School will close at 2:30 pm today- Tuesday, Sept 8th and all day Wednesday, Sept 9th. If you have issues with logging into Canvas and/or student email, please contact Kim Kahle @ email@example.com

The decision has been made to make our second semester (3rd and 4th quarters combined) Pass/NoPass for all students grades 7-11. This will hopefully take some of the pressure off of our families and students as we work to provide education through distance learning. Thank you.

April 2, 2020 Please review the following update regarding the expectations and details of distance learning for Harrisburg Jr/Sr High School students: Our staff has spent this week (March 30-April 2) working hard to adapt to the world of distant learning. They have been very involved with developing creative ways to educate our students remotely. All of this starts with making sure all of our families have the necessary equipment and materials to access education. Starting next week (April 6-9) you should be able to access material for your students to work on. During this week please make sure that contact is made with each of your student’s teachers. The expectation is that your student needs to make contact with each of their teachers at least once per week. This can occur in a variety of ways which includes email, Zoom, or by phone. Our goal for this week is that everyone (staff, students, and parents) becomes familiar with the process of distance learning. I am asking my teachers not to enter grades this week as we realize there will be some challenges that need to be overcome and I don’t want additional stress placed on students that are adjusting to this style of learning. On April 13th we will officially start providing Distance Learning where teachers will be establishing due dates, requiring assignments and assessments, providing feedback, and entering grades. The expectation is that students will spend approximately 30 minutes per day for each of their classes. Students will also need to continue to make weekly check-ins with their teachers. This will provide the opportunity for all students to earn their credits for the second semester. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work together to provide the best possible education for our students during these challenging circumstances.
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.
Here is a link to ODE parent resource. Yesterday I mentioned online distance learning. I was incorrect in using online in my sentence. Distance learning is not digital learning. More to come..
