Harford County Public Schools American Education Week starts Monday with Grandparents Day


This week Harford County Public Schools will be full of visitors as parents, guardians, grandparents and friends stop by to see what happens during a typical day at school. This year’s theme is “Great Public Schools: A Basic Right and Our Responsibility.” The district has designated specific days for visitors interested in particular grades in order to control the flow of visitors. However, visitors are welcome on Thursday and Friday as well. Here’s the information from the school district:
