    We are pleased to share the Equity Audit Report provided to us from a2z Consulting.  The report includes both qualitative and quantitative data from their equity audit of Livingston Public Schools.  The audit was commissioned last spring in order to gather feedback from an outside third-party regarding the impact of our efforts to foster inclusivity and equity in our district.

    BUILDING EXCELLENCE LOGOAs we head into the middle of the 21st Century with record high enrollment, Livingston Public Schools is faced with some important questions. What are the district's future facility needs? What building repairs, improvements and replacements are needed moving forward to provide our students with the best possible education? Livingston Public Schools remains committed to maintaining the legacy of excellence that attracts residents who place a high value on education and who wish to live in a community that exceeds expectations in all areas.

    The district has been pro-actively planning for the future in many ways, including closely monitoring enrollment, commissioning a demographic study, working collaboratively with Township of Livingston officials, and establishing a Long Range Facility Planning Committee.


    Visit the district's Long Range Facility Planning webpage to learn more about the committee, and view related presentations and press releases.

    Dear Harrison Families,

    I hope everyone had a restful Winter Recess. I want to thank the entire community for supporting “Livingston Neighbors Helping Neighbors” during our PJ/Yoga day on February 14th! This event was highly successful and brings us such satisfaction to know we are supporting our own community members with your donations! We raised $816.  Thank you!

    Also, if you haven't heard, we had a very special assembly for Mrs. Karen Raffa celebrating her service to Harrison School for over 35 years! The students did an amazing job singing in sign language to show her how much she means to them! It was a special day and lesson for all of our kids! Mrs. Raffa’s last day is Friday, March 1st.

    Did you know that over the next few weeks you can support the Harrison PTA by dining out on certain days at certain places?! Well, if you didn’t knowbefore, now you know! Please see the attached flier to know the days you can support these local businesses and they will give back to the Harrison PTA! Please mention when you dine on those days that you are a part of the Harrison School fundraiser. 

    At this time, I am sure you are all aware that we have exhausted all our Snow Days as a district. Dr. Block sent a message to the community explaining we will be having a half day session on Friday, April 5th to make up the day. For those parents who have already put into the parent portal that day thank you. If you already know you will not be in school, please put it into the parent portal asap so I can plan any changes to the day, if needed, based on numbers. If you are attending that day, there is no need to notify us.

    Kindergarten registration has begun! If you have a Kindergarten student that is attending the Livingston Public Schools next year, please start that registration process! Please see the instructions on the website!

    Our Trep$ program is looking for volunteer guests to come to our Workshop on Wednesday, March 13th at 2:50pm. The guests will give advice and constructive feedback to our students on their business ideas and products. Whether you are a business owner, working in product development, marketing or advertising and sales, we welcome you to join us on a fun and unforgettable chance to interact with our budding entrepreneurs. Please contact us at Harrisontreps@gmail.com if you are interested in participating.

    Next week, we have parent teacher conferences on March 4th, 5th, and 6th. If you haven't signed up for a session with your teachers already, please check their messages for information on signing up. Conferences will be on google meet and if any other arrangements need to be made please work them out with your child’s teacher/s.

    Thank you everyone!
