HARRISON, Ohio — Harrison Junior High is moving to remote learning from Dec. 15 through Dec. 18 due to a large number of student and staff absences because of positive COVID-19 tests or family member quarantines, Southwest Local Schools Superintendent John Hamstra said in a news release on Tuesday.

This announcement comes five days after the High School moved to remote learning because of an increase in COVID-19 cases.

Kindergarten through fifth-grade students will remain in school for face-to-face instruction for the remainder of the week.

The district’s holiday break begins Monday, Dec. 21.

Extracurricular activities for the junior high students will not be affected.

Meals will be provided for those in need on Thursday, Dec. 17, from 3 to 4 p.m. Parents are asked to call the school’s office at (513) 367-4831 to place an order before 3 p.m. on Wednesday. Meals can be picked up at the back entrance to the school’s café.
