The Harrison Central School District provides this weekly COVID-19 update with information on the following topics:

  • HCSD Requests Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination to Reduce Unnecessary Quarantine

  • HCSD Hosted Voluntary COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic on November 22 for Students Ages 5-11

HCSD Requests Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination to Reduce Quarantine

When individuals are vaccinated against COVID-19, they help to reduce the risk of transmission in school and avoid having to quarantine following exposure to a positive person.   Since all students are now eligible for the vaccine,  the District is renewing the request for parents to voluntarily provide proof of their child's vaccination by completing this HIPAA-protected COVID-19 Vaccination Survey.

COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic for Students Ages 5-11

The Harrison Central School District partnered with White Plains Hospital to host a free, voluntary COVID-19 vaccine clinic for students ages 5 to 11 on Monday, November 22.  183 student received their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine at this clinic, and they have been scheduled to receive the second dose on Monday, December 13.  We realize that not every interested parent/guardian was able to schedule an appointment, and we are working to schedule additional opportunities to offer the vaccine in the near future. 

NYSDOH Guidance for Vaccine Reactions

NYSDOH recently published the following guidance to explain possible reactions to the COVID-19 vaccine and the steps to be followed:

COVID-19 Cumulative Testing Results

The District has begun voluntary weekly COVID-19 testing for a representative sample of students in each school.  Testing a representative sample of students each week will limit the spread of COVID-19 and ensure schools remain open for in-person instruction.  To learn more about the District's COVID-19 testing program, CLICK HERE.
