Harrisonville School District Sends Love to Lamar – Hurricane Harvey Help Now Underway

The Harrisonville School District has “adopted” the Lamar Consolidated Independent School District (CSID) just outside of Houston to provide ongoing Hurricane Harvey relief.  The Lamar CISD has 27,000 students.

The first need is for backpacks and school uniforms, which include khaki pants, shorts, skirts, and red, white, or navy blue polos. The polos must be generic and without logos. They need all sizes, child through adult.  All backpacks and uniform clothing must be new.  The Harrisonville School District will be collecting items at the Harrisonville Football Game on Friday, September 8 at Memorial Stadium and during the school day at any of our schools the week of September 4-8. The first round of donations will be headed to Lamar on September 16th. This is meant to be an ongoing relationship with Lamar and as needs arise, we will share, collect, and transport.

New ‘No Parking’ Zones Designated Around Harrisonville High School

This summer, based on recommendations from the Harrisonville Cares Coalition, the Harrisonville City Council passed new parking regulations impacting Elm Street.

There is no parking on the south side of Elm Street at any time.  There is no parking on the north side of Elm Street, which is the side HHS sits on, from 7am to 4pm on school days between Price and Mechanic Streets.  There is also no parking on the north side of Elm from 11am to 4pm on school days between Price and Halsey Street.

This means drivers can park on the north side of Elm for evening events.  This will provide for safer exiting procedures after night events as no one will have to cross the street to get into their car.

Within the HHS campus, there are a few no parking areas, specifically in the drop-off and fire lanes which are painted red.  Do not park a car in these locations at any time.

Points of Wildcat Pride from the Harrisonville School District

Harrisonville High School Senior Soccer Player Seth Wiebusch broke the school record for assists in the August 29th Harrisonville vs. Excelsior Springs Soccer Game.

McEowen Elementary School students & staff recently celebrated the completion of a summer reading challenge with a pizza party.  The students were challenged to read 1500 minutes over the summer either by themselves or with someone.

Prepare Your Pooch: September is National Preparedness Month

Tips from the Humane Society of Missouri Disaster Response Team to Keep Pets Safe in Times of Disaster

From power outages to tornados, fires to floods, disasters for Missouri residents are unpredictable and often unexpected. When making a disaster plan, many people forget about protecting their furry family members. These four-legged friends are left behind by owners who are not prepared to properly care for them during or after a disaster. However, with a little extra preparation, pet owners can have a plan in place to ensure all of their loved ones remain safe.

September is National Preparedness Month, and it is the perfect time to put a plan in place for the whole family, including pets. The Humane Society of Missouri’s Animal Cruelty Task Force offers these four tips, which could be the key to survival:

  1. Create a plan: Create an evacuation plan that includes your pet and inform close friends and family. Identify pet-friendly places to go in times of distress and make sure your pet has identification, including a collar with ID tag and an up-to-date microchip, at all times. In addition, be sure to include a plan for pet care if you are away from home when disaster strikes.
  2. Make a disaster kit: Include medications, medical records, leashes/harnesses/carriers, current photos and descriptions of your pets, five days’ worth of food and water, and anything that will reduce your pet’s stress, like their bed and toys.
  3. If you evacuate, take your pet: Don’t assume your pet will be fine, even if you think you will only be gone for a short period of time.
  4. Listen for information: Whether it’s over the radio or on your phone, listening and following news outlets is key to receiving updates on where to go and what to do during an emergency.
