Dear Harvey Education Center families,

District

Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to move to remote learning for tomorrow at the Harvey Education Center. We have also closed our tuition-based programs and child development center for tomorrow. All HEC families and staff have been notified of this change.

We are working with the health department to contact trace a positive COVID-19 case reported this evening. We wanted you all to be aware of what is happening at the HEC.

We apologize for the length of this message, however we feel there is a lot of important information included and we want to always be transparent with the community on how decisions are made for our schools.
