free and reduced meal program
With every new school built over the last 20 years, the school board and administration anticipated and planned for future growth. Our most recent growth challenges are in Harrisburg proper, where new subdivisions have accelerated already rising student enrollment. Liberty Elementary is at capacity. Three of the new developments are located in the Liberty school zone, increasing the need for additional space. Last year, the Tiger Reserve program was moved to Adventure Elementary to make more room at Liberty. Additionally, Head Start and Jr. Kindergarten was moved from Liberty to Freedom. There are also four new developments currently underway in the Freedom school zone which will also push Freedom closer to capacity in the near future. The school board’s commitment has always been to build the right size at the right time, without raising the mill levy and imposing any new burdens on taxpayers. The District has been able to do this through the continued growth in property valuation with the addition of new neighborhoods and businesses coming into the community. Through the passing of bond elections, Harrisburg School District citizens have shown they value the District's foresight to stay ahead of growth and provide quality learning facilities for students. In order to maximize use of current facilities, address overcrowding, and ensure the right size is built at the right time without raising taxes, the District will be proposing a solution to build a new elementary school and convert Liberty to a joint use facility which would house Early Childhood grades and share spaces with the city of Harrisburg. A public meeting will be held Tuesday, August 16th at 6:30 PM in the Liberty Band Room located through the District Office main entrance (Entrance E). We encourage the public to attend and subscribe to our new podcast, Harrisburg 41-2, which includes the topic of growth and will address our current needs in a future episode, released in the near future.

While free meals for all students were a welcome relief during the pandemic, these benefits will end at the of this school year. When the pandemic hit, the federal government funded a program that allowed all students—even those who were not previously eligible—to receive free meals. However, recently they have declined to continue funding this program. If your child qualifies for free or reduced meals, they can still receive them, but you must take action to make it happen! If you are concerned that you may not be able to afford school meal prices, we urge you to fill out an application for free or reduced meal benefits as soon as possible. You can find a copy of this application on our website or contact Chris Beach, Child Nutrition Director. The process is simple and can be done online, but Chris is happy to answer any questions you may have. The District is always available to support families, so think about what option is best for you, and let us know if there is any way we can assist.
