Student Schedules
Our leadership team has been working diligently on student schedules for the new school year. This is a lengthy, annual process that is impacted by many factors, including staffing changes and district course progression updates. The master schedules at both Lakeland and Harrison are adjusted each year to ensure the greatest number of students possible can be served in the classes they are requesting. Ultimately, there are students every year that end up not getting all of the courses they requested – both at Harrison and at traditional schools. We do our best to minimize conflicts and provide alternatives for students when conflicts do occur. Thank you for your understanding and patience when working through scheduling challenges with our school counseling team.
Harrison could not provide many of the opportunities we offer without the support of our amazing parents' association! We would love for all of our parents to join the HPA as members. There are three different membership levels available. If you would like to join by check, please click here to access the form and mail it in to the school. If you would like to join using your credit card, you can click here to access the online membership form.
The HPA invites all parents to join us on August 30 for "Mix'N'Mingle". This fun and informative parent event will give you an opportunity to meet other parents, alumni, and members of the HPA Executive Board. Registration includes appetizers and beverages. The event will be held at the school in the main rotunda and art gallery from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. The HPA General Meeting will immediately follow. Registration for the event will close on August 26. Click here to register now. Looking forward to seeing you there!
