Dear Parents and Students,
As principal of Harrison Central Junior Senior High School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great school year. Our vision at Harrison Central Junior Senior High School has not changed considering these challenging times. Our top priority is to provide a well-rounded educational experience for students in a safe and secure environment. As we move forward, I would like to inform you about some important information.
I look forward to working with you this school year. Let’s make it the best one ever! And as always, go Huskies!!!
Respectfully,Kenneth M. Parker, Principal (PreK-12)Todd Dunlap, Assistant Principal (Grades 10-12)Justin Clifford, Assistant Principal (Grades 7-9)
Harrison Hills City School District’s Board of Education approved the Harrison Central start plan last evening. Student and staff safety are the key to this plan while still providing a sound educational environment. The plan is attached below:
Thank you to staff, parents, students, and community members for your continued support of Harrison Central. We can certainly get through these unique times together.
The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not currently recommend the use of face shields as a substitute for masks/face coverings. That is because, at this time, it is not known what level of protection a face shield provides against the spray of respiratory droplets from the wearer to people nearby. There is currently not enough evidence to support the wearing of face shields to control the spray of respiratory droplets.
Ohio’s K-12 facial covering order requires facial coverings that cover the nose, mouth, and chin. There are limited exceptions to the order. If one of those exceptions applies to an individual, a face shield would be appropriate. Schoolwide use of face shields instead of masks is not appropriate and does not meet the requirements of the order.
The Harrison Hills City School District will provide all PK-12 students with his or her required school supplies to start the upcoming year. As always, Harrison Central students are not charged any fees for instructional materials.
As a welcome back gift, all students will be provided with their own Huskies water bottle for use throughout the school day. Additionally, all classrooms, lunchrooms and high traffic areas will be provided with hand sanitizer.
Parents from other school districts requesting enrollment in Harrison Hills School must submit an application to the Superintendent's Office between March 1-March 31, 2020. Parents/Guardians who are interested in the open enrollment program may complete the form at http://www.hhcsd.org/OpenEnrollment.aspx
Applications received prior to March 1, 2020 will not be accepted.
