Dragon Days Video


Welcome Back Harlan Elementary Students.  Below is just a reminder of how we will handle any snow days ("Dragon Days") that may be ahead.  Let's work hard every day we are here.  Welcome to 2016!!!

"Old Man Winter" is just around the corner. In anticipation of severe weather days the Harlan Independent Schools has put together a DRAGON DAY plan to be used on traditional snow days. Through the use of DRAGON DAYS, students will stay engaged and we may not have to address our school calendar later in the school year.

We have put together a short overview video that outlines some of the highlights of what needs to take place on a DRAGON DAY. Additionally, we would like to make sure you know to contact the school Principal or Teacher if you have any questions.
