Harnett County Schools COVID-19 Updates


To limit the spread of COVID-19, Governor Roy Cooper announced an executive order on March 23, 2020, that North Carolina Public Schools will remain closed for all students and staff until May 15, 2020. Students and staff members will work remotely during this time. The district has outlined the following procedures that will be utilized through the remainder of the Governor’s executive order regarding school closure.

Assignment Packets
Remote Learning will continue throughout the closure of school. Teachers will have remote instruction through May 15th. Parents and students currently have materials in place for the next two weeks from our previous assignment packet pick-up times. Additional materials/work will be distributed to parents/students at all school sites on:

  • April 6, 2020, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
  • April 27, 2020, from 11:30 am. To 3:30 p.m. and from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 pm.

These packets will include work for three weeks/15 days. Students in grades 6-12 that have internet access at home can access assignments through Google Classroom. Printed assignment packets for pick up are for students in grades 6-12 that do not have a device and/or access. Printed assignment packets will be provided for all K-5 students.

School Lunch and Breakfast
Children ages 18 or younger will be eligible for meals. Families can pick-up bagged lunch for the day and breakfast for the next day (two meals in one bag). We have six school sites that will provide curbside pick-up meals between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Meals will be served Monday – Friday. Parents are welcomed to pick- up meals for their household. No one will be denied meals during pick-up times.

The following schools will be providing curbside pick-up meals:

  • Angier Elementary School
  • Boone Trail Elementary School
  • Coats Elementary School
  • Harnett Primary School
  • Johnsonville Elementary School
  • South Harnett Elementary School

Student Enrollment
Harnett County Schools will not transfer, enroll or withdraw students in the current 2019-20 school year until further guidance has been provided by the state. As a district, we are currently evaluating alternative methods to enroll students once that guidance has been received.

The school reassignment window for the 2020-2021 SY has been extended to June 1st, 2020. Rising kindergarten students are not permitted to apply for reassignment until after a new kindergarten registration period has been established by the district.
