To our Lower School Campus Neighbors,
We hope all of you have stayed well and safe since we emailed you all last in April.

We wanted to let our neighbors know that Harker will be returning to in-person learning for all students for the 2021-22 school year. There will be a variety of small, grade-level orientations and activities over the next two weeks and classes officially start on Wed., Aug. 25.

Upcoming Events Include:

Mon., Aug. 23
8:30-10:30 a.m.: Gr. 1 & 2 Parent Orientation and Breakfast
3-7 p.m.: Kindergarten Orientation and Dinner

Tues., Aug. 24
8:30-10:30 a.m.: Gr. 4 & 5 Parent Orientation and Breakfast
11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.: Gr. 3 Parent Orientation and Brunch

Wed., Aug. 25
School officially begins
8-10 a.m.: Parent Welcome Breakfast and Volunteer Sign-Up

As you can imagine, the students are very excited to come back to their beloved campuses, and we are equally excited to welcome them. We will also be educating and reminding our parents, via orientations and emails, to follow all traffic safety regulations and to be respectful of our wonderful neighbors.

By way of background, we operated our school year program almost entirely remotely for the 2020-21 school year to keep our community safe. We were able to operate our summer programs, open to all students, the past two summers following all necessary mandates.

We have three San Jose campuses, one for each of our divisions:
Lower School (K-5): 4300 Bucknall Avenue
Middle School (Gr. 6-8): 4545 Union Avenue
Upper School (Gr. 9-12): 500 Saratoga Avenue
Good communication and working partnerships with our neighbors at each of our campuses is important to us, and we welcome any suggestions, concerns or questions you may have. You can email neighbors@harker.org or call us at 408.871.4600 any time. You can also subscribe to regular email updates from us here: https://www.harker.org/about/good-neighbors/subscribe

Thank you, and take good care,
