    Communication between home and school is very important. 

    Harrisfield Public School will be communicating with families using School Messenger and the Harrisfield Public School Facebook page.

    A monthly newsletter will be sent to families by School Messenger.  Please ensure you have a valid email address with the office. 


    It is the parents/guardians responsibility to report your child's attendance daily! If your child will be LATE or ABSENT please remember to report this using the School Messenger reporting system BEFORE 9:15 AM. If your child will be leaving early, parents/guardians have a responsibility to report this using the School Messenger reporting system BEFORE 1:30 PM.

    Please help limit classroom interruptions during instructional time.

    All meetings will take place on the 1st Monday of each month, in person (staffroom) and online (zoom) at 7 PM. Please email harrisfieldhsa@gmail.com to request the link to join the monthly teams meetings.
