Dear Harrison Families,

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers in our Harrison Community! I hope everyone enjoys a relaxing day! Thank you to the PTA for organizing our Plant Sale on Friday and adapting to bring it inside for our children! It was wonderful to see our children walking around to pick out gifts to share with the important people in their lives. Not only was this a valuable lesson on the gift of giving, but this was also an important fundraiser! Thank you to all who supported it!

The New Jersey Standards Learning Assessment (NJSLA State Testing) starts this week for our 3rd grade students and during the week of May 16 for our 4th and 5th graders! If you have a child who will be taking this test, it is important that they get a good night's sleep and follow normal routines for coming to school! Students should also arrive on time. If they are late they will not be able to take the test for that day and must make it up on another day. It is also very important for all students to bring their charged Chromebooks to school.

Beginning tomorrow, May 9, 2022, parents should report early dismissals in the Genesis Parent Portal.  Parents are no longer required to call or email their child’s school if a student needs to leave early.  As of May 9th, all attendance reporting including absences, tardies and early dismissals should be reported using the Genesis Parent Portal.  Attendance reporting instructions can be found on the front page of our school website. View instructions for how to report early dismissals in Genesis.

As you all may be aware already, on Friday,  May 27 there will be no school, due to the extra snow day that we did not have to use! Please use this extra day off to enjoy your Memorial Day weekend! Thank you to all the servicemen and women in our Livingston community who serve in the armed forces and also those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. 

Kindergarten registration for the 2022-2023 school year has been opened! If you have or know of a family who has a Kindergarten aged child next year, please let them know to register ASAP. For more information about Kindergarten registration please click HERE
