In the event school is closed or dismissed early, the announcement will be made through the following media:
District Website: harrisburg.k12.mo.us
Facebook: Harrisburg R-8 School District (See Facebook link available at the bottom of this page.)
SchoolMessenger: Alert messages for all SchoolMessenger subscribers.
Radio Stations: KRES (104.7) and KCLR (99)
Television Stations: KOMU-Channel 8 and KMIZ-Channel 17
Once the decision is made to close school, the above media outlets will immediately be notified, an alert will be posted on the school district’s website and Facebook page, and a SchoolMessenger message alert will be sent. The school’s website and Facebook page are typically the fastest and earliest announcements to the public when an unscheduled school closing occurs. If you have not signed up for SchoolMessenger and would like to do so, you may sign up on the district’s website homepage under Resources/Parents.
