Harrison offers a variety of opportunities for families to participate in their child's learning. Anyone interested in volunteering must register with FCPS and clear a criminal background check here. You can also find out about districtwide opportunities here.
All visitors must sign in at the front office every time they enter the building. Please make an appointment if you need to meet with your child's teacher.
Attendance at school is essential for good performance and high achievement. A written excuse, dated and signed by the parent/guardian, is required for all absences. Excused absences include illness, death of an immediate family member, religious holidays for which prior approval is given, medical and dental appointments, and special cases approved by the principal. Children are tardy if they arrive after 7:45 a.m. and must obtain a tardy slip from the office.
Picking up your child
We want all of our students to get home safely each day. To have an orderly and safe dismissal, we must know about all changes to transportation before 3 p.m. each day. No change in transportation will be permitted unless we have a written note from the family. During the school day, you must come into the office to sign your child out. Children can only be released to family members (ID required) listed on the Emergency Dismissal Card. Children are only released from class when called from the office. Families should not park on Bruce Street during dismissal.
