COLORADO SPRINGS — Harrison School District 2 has announced they are canceling in-person classes for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year due to the COVID-19 crisis. However, they will continue with remote learning opportunities through May 21.

In a press release sent Monday, the district said "Harrison School District Two believes this is the right move to protect the health of students, staff, and community while also being transparent. The district believes that once the stay at home order is lifted, social distancing and limited group gatherings will continue for several weeks, if not months. The district is not comfortable to return to school buildings while implementing these recommendations with fidelity to keep students and staff safe."

During this time and until May 21, 2020, Harrison School District Two will continue to offer food service for children through age 18.

Harrison School District 2 is also working to address new plans for graduations and other year-end celebrations that can happen safely and still celebrate students, parents, and staff. Those plans will be announced as soon as they are finalized.
