Dear Parents and Carers
The Department of Education has advised me that Harrisdale SHS is closed to all students and staff tomorrow (Friday, 8 February). This is due to the bushfire emergency declared by the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) that poses a threat to lives and homes in the area.
Parents are asked to keep their children home tomorrow. Should you wish for your child to attend school tomorrow, please make arrangements for him or her to report to Thornlie Senior High School, Ovens Rd, Thornlie, where Harrisdale SHS staff will be located.
I understand that media outlets are also informing families of the school’s closure tomorrow.
I apologise for the inconvenience caused; however, the safety and well being of our students and staff, and keeping out if the way of DFES operations in the local area tomorrow, is the paramount consideration.
