Summer School 2021

The Harrisonville School District will be offering summer school to students entering grades 1-8.  Summer School is set for May 24-June 21 from 8 a.m.-2 p.m.. 

Due to construction on several buildings, our space to host summer school is limited and therefore enrollment will be limited. As classes reach capacity, students will be put on a waiting list.  

Students entering grades 1-5 will attend class at McEowen Elementary School while those students entering grades 6-8 will attend class at Harrisonville High School.


This year we have partnered with Catapult to offer Summer Journey. The program provides a combination of core academic courses and enriching Journey classes which include STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) courses.   In the morning, all students will review skills from this year to help prepare them for the next grade level.  In the afternoon, students will be able to pick from six different exploratory classes where they can extend their learning.

The district will run bus routes to centralized pick-up and drop-off locations based on enrollment. Breakfast & lunch will be served at both schools and through a continuation of the Summer Food Service Program and the USDA,  all meals will be free.

We will continue to follow health and safety protocols outlined in our back-to-school plan for summer school 2021 including wearing masks when social distancing is not possible and frequent sanitizing and handwashing.  We will also continue to follow health department quarantine/isolation procedures if students are exposed to a positive COVID case or test positive themselves. We will not offer online summer school during quarantine/isolation.

Students entering grades 9-12 will have the opportunity to enroll in Edgenuity  (online) courses including Personal Finance and Health, on-site classes including Lifetime Sports and Driver’s Education, and Speech which will be a hybrid (online & on-site).  More information was sent to parents of students in grades 8-11 by HHS.

The Community Center will once again offer after-school care for a fee.  The district will provide transportation to the Center. See this link for more info from the Community Center.
