Hoya Hello

Please join us for our Hoya Hello on Monday, July 30! Please see our Hoya Hello flyer for details about our freshman orientation, new student orientation, and more! We hope to see you there!

Parking Update

Parking decals will not be available for pickup until Hoya Hello on Monday, July 30, 2018!

Due to some delays caused by construction here on campus, we will not be distributing parking decals July 16 through July 19 as originally planned. We are in the process of reevaluating the total number of spaces in an effort to maximize our student parking availability. However, please remember that we will have a limited number of spaces available to students and that not all students who submitted an application will receive a parking spot. There will be specific information on how to pick up parking decals sent out the week before Hoya Hello.

2018 AP exam scores will be available online beginning on Friday, July 6.

First Day of School on August 1, 2018

For the first day of school, students will report to their advisement class first to pick up CCSD information and school updates. Please see our August 1 bell schedule for more information. We look forward to welcoming you back for another awesome year!

Student Schedules

Students received course request profiles in May, which lists their core classes. Please use course request profiles to determine which pre-course assignments students need to complete.  For the fall semester, we schedule the courses with a 'Y'. Then, we schedule courses with a 'B' for the spring semester. While we make every attempt to keep students on the same course rotations from year to year, scheduling conflicts may warrant a change. We recommend that students complete all pre-course assignments for the upcoming school year during the summer. 

Harrison Construction Is Underway!

We are very excited to be getting a new gymnasium and new performing arts center here at Harrison! Beginning this week, the administrative team will be including updates about the upcoming SPLOST project for the school community in our weekly eBlast. These updates will include important information regarding parking on campus, temporary traffic patterns during construction, and also other project logistics that will help the Harrison community prepare/plan ahead for time spent here on campus. 

We will use a temporary traffic pattern plan during the SPLOST construction for next school year. Please begin to familiarize yourself with this plan now. The bus port will be closed off for the entire school year, so bus traffic has been rerouted to the front of the school. As you are planning ahead for next year’s appointments (doctor, dentist, etc.) please try to give yourself an additional 30-45 minutes to account for the heavier traffic on campus. We ask that you please be patient, flexible, and extra careful while driving through campus.

Key points: We will only allow bus traffic in/out of the bus port entrance to the school. All parent/student traffic must use the main entrance for both entry to and exit from campus. There will be signage posted throughout campus to help facilitate these temporary routes.

For more information about SPLOST IV, please visit the Cobb County School District SPLOST IV website. To see the gym and performing arts projected views, please visit our SPLOST IV page.

LGE Community Credit Union/Cobb County School District Partnership

Harrison High LGE Debit CardLGE Community Credit Union (LGE) has partnered with the Cobb County School District (CCSD) to support our schools and students. As a new feature of this partnership, LGE has created high school spirit cards where each high school in our district will have their own VISA card (debit or credit) that contains their unique high school mascot logo along with the logos for LGE and CCSD, as an exclusive partnership. This is a great opportunity for each high school community (teachers, staff, students, and parents) to participate in, because this program is designed to create team spirit in each high school environment while at the same time, create an opportunity for each high school to raise additional funding.

How can you get a LGE/CCSD VISA spirit card?
High school spirit cards are available starting in April of 2018. The high school spirit cards are available for teachers, students, parents, and community members. If you are already an LGE member or want to join the LGE Community Credit Union, simply visit an LGE branch. LGE branches are conveniently located throughout Cobb County. 

How will you and your high school benefit from this partnership?
As part of launching the high school spirit card program, LGE will be giving each high school $1,000 for participating. On top of that, LGE will implement a revenue share with each high school. High achool revenue sharing will depend on how many teachers, students, and parents signup for the VISA card and how often they use their cards. The more participation and transactions a high school has, the more money that goes back into the pockets of each school. In addition to benefiting the CCSD high schools, if a teacher, student, or parent has a high rewards checking account, they would also get 2.00% earnings every time they use their high school spirit card. In addition, they would also get 1.00% cash back on all VISA credit card purchases if they also sign-up for a high school spirit credit card!

Tell me about LGE Community Credit Union and their products and services.
LGE Community Credit Union is a large, well respected credit union which offers a range of financial banking services including checking, savings, loans, insurance, and more. LGE high rewards checking features 2.00% APY earnings on balances up to $25,000 based on HRC requirements. Additionally, LGE offers 1.00% cash back on credit card purchases. LGE members also have access to LGE financial advisors that can meet with you to uncover your needs and long-term goals, and then build a complimentary financial plan that will help you to determine a savings and investment strategy that is appropriate for you, your family, and your future.
