Reminders:

Attendance - A very important part in our students’ school day is arriving to class on time. Period one begins at 8:45. Teachers are supervising at 8:30 outside until the 8:45 start time. Arriving to school between 8:30 and 8:45 allows the students to mingle / visit with their friends before the start of classes. Arriving on time for class (at 8:45) allows the students to enter with their peers, hear morning announcements and begin lessons (hearing the introductory instructions and outline for the day) with their teachers. As well, in the broader scope, school is a microcosm of our bigger world...it is a chance to practice real life skills. Parents promoting the importance of arriving on time for class in elementary school are helping their children prepare for independently arriving on time for middle school, high school, appointments and jobs in the future. We respectfully ask for you to make this a priority in your homes this New Year and have all students to school on time.

Cashless - As you know, all Halton schools use a cashless system. At Harrison PS, it is our preferred method of having parents pay for fundraising events, food days and trips. We would be very happy to not manage any cash or cheques coming into the school and only use the cashless system. If you have not used it in the past, we ask that you take a moment to get set up on the system. If you need any help or guidance when using the cashless system, please let us know.
