Hello Harvey Clarke Families,


We hope you are having a wonderful summer! Here are some important dates:


Monday, August 5. School office opens. If you are registering a new student, please remember to bring your child's birth certificate, immunization record, proof of residency (mortgage statement, rental agreement or notarized affidavit connecting you to the property where you claim to live) and any IEP or 504 records if they pertain to your child. Our office staff will verify the address prior to enrollment.


August 19-22, Kindergarten Jump Start. This is an early entry program to help our new kindergarten students get acclimated to the school building and routines. If you have enrolled your kindergarten student already, there is no further action required on your part. You will receive a letter in late July with more details. Jump Starts runs 9am-12pm Monday-Thursday. Transportation is provided for students within the bus ride zone. Newly enrolled kindergarten students will be added to the Jump Start mailing lists.
