You are invited to participate in discussions on the future of Harwood Union High School. The School Board is seeking your input on how to proceed. The community will be receiving further information in the coming weeks with summaries of the three main categories.

The Board welcomes feedback from our community and one of the easiest ways to share your thoughts is to send an email to [email protected], which will go to every Board member.
