The primary focus of the Harlan Independent School District is to provide our school community and specifically school aged students with high-quality educational experiences.
The District Mission and Vision Statements are deeply rooted in the fundamental principles that the developmental needs of students are critically connected to a healthy, vibrant school experience.
We remain focused on achieving that mission through in-person learning for our students. After 18 months of adjusting to different learning models, our district has grown stronger in remarkable ways. However, we have learned there is no substitute equal to in-person learning for schools and families. The dynamics of personal, face-to-face interactions inside classrooms, hallways, cafeterias, and extra-curricular events cannot be ignored.
After nearly 4 weeks of successfully holding in-person learning, the Harlan Independent Board of Education has endorsed our School Operations Plan that will allow us to continue to operate under the current parameters of required masking for students, staff, and visitors while inside school buildings.
We will monitor local and school conditions on an on-going basis and make necessary adjustments as needed. At this time, the Harlan Independent School District has a total of 7 positives student cases, which is less than 1% of the student population.
Ms. Sue's class is learning "All About Me." Today are they are making self portraits.
Come out tonight and support the Harlan Middle School Lady Dragons for 8th Grade Night and their game against Lynn Camp! 8th grade night will begin at 5:30! Good luck Lady Dragons 🐉🐉🐉!

Harlan Cross County Records Fall in First Meet of Season
In their inaugural season, the Harlan Elementary School Girls Cross Country Team achieved a feat rarely seen in the sport in the Harlan County All Comers Season opener. Fielding their first team in school history, the young runners made quick work of the 1-mile course on their way to achieving a perfect score of 15 points. Led by 6th grader Harper Carmical who crossed the finish line with a time of 10:35, Harlan also captured 2nd through 6th place respectively.
5th grader Cooper Thomas started off the season with a strong race, building on an exceptional year in 2020. Cooper was the leader of the Dragon pack with a 3rd place finish and time of 10:52:84 for the boys’ team.
8th grader Dylan Cox was blazing fast on his way to smashing the school record in the 3000m event. With a time of 12:02.75 Cox has clearly set himself apart from the field and established himself as the leader of the pack.
Harlan High School Junior Mia Pace is the veteran on this years squad and helped lead the Dragons with an 11th place finish on the day.
