Safety Policy-- Please be aware that a safety plan has been put into place by the Harrisburg School District. If the office staff is unfamiliar with the individual who is visiting or signing out a student, they will need to show identification. If parents arrange for someone other than themselves to pick up their student, please make them aware of our policy and inform the office of whom will be coming. Thank you.
North Middle School Parking Lot-- Please be courteous and vigilant as you enter and exit the North Middle School parking lot. As our building continues to grow, it is critical that we all take a common sense, neighborly approach for when you either drop off or pick up your student. A few reminders:We have several students with leg injuries whose parents require access to the handicap parking spaces. Do not park in a handicap spot without a parking tag. In addition, do not block a handicap spot.Please pull forward as far as you can while waiting for your student to leave the building. The pickup lane extends all the way to the east end of the building.Keep your eyes open for students being dropped off in the outer lane.Do not park in the street. If the pick-up line extends past the parking lot boundaries, be sure to find a spot to park in the parking lot.
