Harrison County Schools is excited to remind you that beginning Monday, March 15th, school will be in session for ALL in-person instruction students, four (4) days a week – Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Wednesday is reserved for VIRTUAL instruction for all students and targeted student services. Students will take home Wednesday’s breakfast and lunch meals when they leave school on Tuesday. Harrison Co. Schools will also be offering a drive-through meal service at the high school on Wednesday nights from 4-6 PM for full virtual students and children 18 and under that are not enrolled in school. If you have questions or concerns about this, please notify your school’s office. Also, please remember that we “spring forward” this weekend by moving our clocks ahead one hour. Daylight Savings Time begins on Sunday, March 14th. Regarding bus transportation Monday morning, please be aware that pick-up times may vary somewhat due to an increased number of students riding the bus. In many ways, it will be like the first day of school for Harrison County students. More students attending school at the same time will mean more traffic congestion on the Hilltop and at all schools during drop-off and pick-up times. The time change will result in dark conditions at morning bus stops. Please be patient and mindful of the increased traffic flow and the safety of all students. Thank you for your patience as we look forward to seeing more students in Harrison County Schools on March 15th!
