Welcome to Harrington Middle School!

Inspiring Potential. Enriching Futures.
Ms. Kathleen Haines
Principal
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.

Schedule Your Sports Physicals Early

A reminder that due to new laws this year, there is a "lag" between the time you turn in your child's Sports Physicals paperwork to the time they can actually try-out or practice on teams, or in any physical activity club. All of the forms have to be reviewed and approved by the School Physician first.  Please schedule your doctors' appointments now. (See forms you will need under the Parents Tab/Sports Physicals.)

The deadline for Spring Sports Physicals will be February 15. Please keep this in mind when scheduling your child's doctor's appointments.

Unfortunately, It Is Also Flu Season ...
The Burlington County Health Department has observed an increase in reports of norovirus, commonly known as the “stomach flu”. Symptoms usually include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach cramping and last for 24-48 hours. Norovirus is easily spread and can be a challenge to control in a school setting. Students will be sent home if they are experiencing symptoms. Students can return to school when their symptoms subside. However, they can remain contagious to others for several days. For this reason, strict adherence to handwashing and environmental cleaning polices is essential. Attached is a fact sheet on norovirus, and some handwashing guidelines that may provide helpful reminders.

2014 Education Summit Webpage Link

More than 100 community members participated in the district's 2014 Education Summit on May 15. Discussion centered on the transformation facing our schools, namely the new Common Core Standards, the new PARCC Test to be administered in 2015 and student attendance rates. The resulting group discussion led to a number of suggestions for better communication within the community.
Check out our 2014 Summit webpage here to view the presentation and check for frequent updates.
