    On Wednesday, February 17th Perry Harrison and Chatham County Schools will join the world in celebrating Digital Learning Day! On this day our school will focus on using technology to strengthen our students’ learning experiences. Digital learning incorporates many different aspects of learning including, online activities, blended learning, and digital content/resources.  

    Our school has won over $4,200 worth of technology grants this year! The grant money has mainly gone towards buying iPads and doing technology based project learning. The PHS PTA has also purchased our 3D printer and several Osmos, an interactive educational iPad app, for our teachers and students. The school has invested in robots for computer coding and an iPad cart with over 20 iPads.

    ·       Each day we will close the traditional front driveway entrance from approximately 2:30-3:15.  During this time frame, cars will enter via the traditional driveway exit and proceed through the upper parking lot.  An additional lane has been added to this part of the driveway to accommodate the traffic pattern.

    ·       Two car rider queue lines will extend from the front of the school through the upper parking lot.  Drivers that intend to pick up car riders will join and follow one of the two queue lines.

    ·       No procedural changes will occur for picking up students and exiting the driveway.

    ·       Individuals that wish to park and access the school or leave campus between approximately 2:30-3:15 are advised to utilize the gravel parking lot on the corner of Hamlet Chapel Road and River Rd, and follow the pathway that extends through the wooded area. Please use the front door(Main Entrance).


    • All cars entering in the mornings should enter through the second gate which is the entrance with the yellow gate arm.
    • Please stay in the line and not go around cars as some students do exit the car on the left.
