It's almost that time. Please be aware of students on your morning commute. 🚌🐯🚸 ⚠️ If you're driving behind a bus, allow a greater following distance than if you were driving behind a car. It will give you more time to stop once the yellow lights start flashing. It is illegal in all 50 states to pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children. ⚠️ Never pass a bus from behind – or from either direction if you're on an undivided road – if it is stopped to load or unload children ⚠️ If the yellow or red lights are flashing and the stop arm is extended, traffic must stop ⚠️ The area 10 feet around a school bus is the most dangerous for children; stop far enough back to allow them space to safely enter and exit the bus ⚠️ Be alert; children often are unpredictable, and they tend to ignore hazards and take risks.

This morning seven HHS seniors committed to the education profession in a signing ceremony in front of their teachers, parents, and college officials. Veteran teachers shared some words of wisdom and commended them for choosing such a challenging and rewarding profession. Harrisburg administrators reminded them that, as part of district policy, graduates of Harrisburg High School seeking a job in education are always guaranteed an interview in the district. The students will head to USD, USF, Augustana, and Southwest Minnesota State University in the fall. We are #TigerProud! 🐯🎓

The following are TWO important messages from the Harrisburg School District: 🚧 Minnesota Avenue Construction 🚧 Beginning tomorrow, Wednesday April 3rd, construction will begin on SD-115/Minnesota Avenue. Construction will be completed in phases over two years, with the first phase taking place between just south of the Minnesota/Willow St. Intersection north to the Apple Orchard. No other traffic, other than local traffic, will be able to travel on Minnesota during this time. For the time being, the contractor will allow our students coming from the west on 110/Willow St. to turn north on to 115/Minnesota Ave. to get to Tiger Way from 7:30 – 8:00am. After 8am, and for the rest of the day, all traffic will need to enter & exit through the SOUTH of the school (onto Willow St.) and may proceed east or west from there. Affected bus routes will not change until fall, and further details will be provided at that time. Please encourage students to drive along paved routes. 🐯 Last Day of School 🐯 Barring any further missed school days, the last day of school will now be Thursday, May 23rd due to make up days.
⚠️ We are hearing that the roads in the country are in tough shape, with water going over some of them. This may be a good day for you to consider alternate options of the best way for you to get your children home if you live outside of town. Our buses will travel where possible, but with conditions changing constantly, we cannot guarantee we will get down each road. Please consider your best options under the circumstances.
