Welcome to Harrington Middle School!

Ms. Kathleen Haines
Principal
Inspiring Potential. Enriching Futures.
The Thomas E. Harrington Middle School is home to 1,056 students in Grades 7 and 8, and 125 staff members, each school day. The professional staff of our school makes a daily commitment to go beyond minimum expectations while we continue to raise our standards. Harrington students make daily contributions to their school and their community.

Our achievements are also a result of the efforts made by area businesses, parental support, advisory groups, local public agencies, and individual community members. Collectively, these resources enhance and enrich the total teaching and learning environment.


Our school provides students with many opportunities to develop academic concepts and skills, acquire fundamental knowledge, determine interests and special talents, and experience a sense of belonging.


Harrington's 2017-2018 General Supply Lists

If It's Summer, It Must Be Time For Summer Reading Lists!

Mount Laurel's Summer Reading Program includes suggested books for students in Grade 1-7. Students are encouraged to create a log of books read for discussion in class in the Fall. Please recognize that your child may select a book that is not on the suggested list that fits his or her individual interests and reading level. Should you have questions about the Summer Reading Program, please contact your school office, which will be open throughout the summer. The following letters to parents detail the program by grade level. The suggested list is also linked below.
 

INSTRUCTIONS TO ACCESS ELECTRONIC REPORT CARDS

Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s),
 
We have recently implemented a new feature inside of Powerschool, called SwiftK12, allowing us to
send report cards and other important documents via the Powerschool Parent Portal. 
 
 
 

Central Registration July 5 to September 7

Don’t wait until the end of summer to register new students! Classes are formed and bus routes developed throughout the summer. Late registrations impact class sizes and may result in transportation delays for your child. So, if you are new to the area, or are registering a new student for the first time in Mount Laurel, please do so as soon as possible. Click here to access our Online Registration System to begin the process.
 
For kindergarten, your child must be five years old or or before October 1, 2017. If you are unsure of your sending area school, check this link or call district Administrative Offices at (856) 235-3387.
 

The registration process begins online, where you can fill-out all of the necessary forms in advance. Our 2017-18 online registration system is available here. The registration process is not completed until you bring the originals of the required documents to the school for verification. For more information on the documents required, visit our Registration webpage.


Our Central Registration Office is open this summer at the Margaret L. Haynes Center at 354 Mount Laurel Road every Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
 
That office will be open from July 5 to September 7. Before and after those dates, registration will take place at the school your child will attend. Please note that transportation services will be delayed by two days for any student registered on September 3 or later.
 

THE HARRINGTON HEALTH OFFICE IS GOING GREEN

Attention Parents:

In an effort to go green, any medication forms, that need to be signed by your physician, can be found on the Mount Laurel School District website as well as the Harrington School website. Forms are for administration of oral, asthmatic, diabetic medications as well as epinephrine. Forms are also available at school. No medication can be administered without the forms being signed by your physician.

Any medication stored in the nurse’s office from 2016-2017 school year needs to be picked up by Tuesday June 20th. After that time, all medications will be discarded.

Reminder - Fall interscholastic sports physicals must be submitted to school by August 15th to be processed in time for tryouts. DO NOT DELAY!

Thank you,

The Harrington Health Office

Sports Physicals Procedures

The laws governing sports physicals have changed at the state level and are extremely stringent. All sports physical forms must now undergo an additional level of review by our district physician. Implementation of these laws may actually preclude some students from participating if guidelines are not followed. 
  
Here are three very important factors to consider this year:
 
1.) Sports physicals will not be offered in our schools this summer. These physicals must be completed either by your family physician, or at the medical facility of your choice. Some suggested facilities are listed below.
 
2.) The deadline for submission of sports physicals is August 15th for any student planning on trying out for Fall Interscholastic Sports. Physicals submitted in September will not be processed in time for the fall sports season.
 
3.) Parents should be aware that sports physicals submitted will only be accepted if the examining doctor has signed the statement that he/she has completed the required professional development module on cardiac assessment. We are required to return any physical paperwork to the parent/student if this statement is not signed by the doctor.
 
Find more information and the complete Grade 5-8 Physical and Athletic Form Packet at this link.
 
August 15th: The deadline date for Fall Sports.
Mid-October: The deadline date for Winter Sports.
Mid-February: The deadline date for Spring Sports.
