The Harrison School District is on schedule to end the current school year before Memorial Day.
Harrison School District Superintendent Dr. Stewart Pratt says during an interview Thursday on KHOZ’s “Around the Table” Program says the last day of school for students is May 26. “May 26 will be a half day for students. We’ll have a normal morning, and we’ll be dismissing all students around 11:30,” he said.
During his visit, Pratt also talks about the GOBSmobile bus. “It’s a 2000 school bus.” The goal is to bring resources for learning to students. He said the idea came from Executive Director of Federal Programs for the school district Susan Gilley and Dr. Travis Graham, the director of operations for the school district.
“People are quarantining and things like that, so we started working on that [the GOBSmobile]. We thought we could deliver reading materials, we could do STEM activities, some robotics, we could do Legos, we could do all kinds of things and bring food also,” he said.
The GOBSmobile was un-vailed earlier this month and will be utilized this summer.
