Construction setbacks delay new school opening in Harrison

Construction setbacks at the new STEAM-designated Harrison community school will force the school to operate from two campuses when it opens for the 2020-21 school year. The COVID-19 pandemic and other setbacks this spring caused the delays, Hamilton County Schools say in a news release.

Students through second grade will meet at the lower campus (formerly Hillcrest). Students in grades three through five will meet at the upper campus (previously Harrison Elementary).

Community orientations for parents and community members will take place in June.

“We’re looking forward to building a strong learning community for our children through innovative STEAM learning experiences,” says principal Wendy Jung. “We will reach our goals for the community’s young learners by closely collaborating with educators, parents and our community partners.”

The school plans to launch the new facility on Ferdinand Piech Way in December. Students will remain with their teachers and class groups as they move to the new building in January.
