64th Annual Awards Banquet Cancelled

After careful consideration and for the health and safety of everyone, the Angier Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the 64th Annual Awards Banquet, which had been postponed due to COVID-19.

If you purchased tickets or provided a sponsorship for the event, please be on the lookout in the mail.

At this time, awards for Man and Woman of the Year, Business of the Year, and the R.H. Ellington Award will be presented at the Annual Crepe Myrtle Celebration in September.

School reassignment period extended

The Harnett County Schools reassignment period for all students has been extended to June 15 at 11:59 p.m. No applications for reassignment will be accepted after this date for the 2020-21 school year. If your application is incomplete, it will be denied after this date.

Reassignment applications for rising Kindergarten families are now being accepted at https://harnettncc.scriborder.com/. Click on the link the appropriate link for rising Kindergarten reassignments within county or out-of-county.

Here are some important reminders:

  • Students must be enrolled at their attendance area school before being eligible to apply for a reassignment.
  • Reassignments are not guaranteed for rising Kindergarten parents, but priority will be given to families who have a student currently attending the school they are requesting to be reassigned to.
  • If the reason for reassignment is child care, a notarized child care form must be completed and uploaded before the application will be processed.
  • If a student lives out of the county, a release from the county where they are domiciled must accompany the application. Even if the child has never attended school in that area, we must have a release form. Families that live out-of-county and are not employees of Harnett County Schools will be required to pay tuition. The tuition amount will be determined after July 1 and a letter will be mailed to parents regarding the amount needed to be paid for the 2020-21 school year.
  • A Kindergarten verification form will not be required to apply for reassignment for the 2020-21 school year.
  • Parents will be notified via email by July 1 if their application has been approved or denied. Please keep a copy of the approval email to give to your reassigned school.
  • The deadline for rising Kindergarten reassignment applications will be June 15 at 11:59 p.m. No applications for reassignment will be accepted after this date for the 2020-21 school year. If your application is incomplete, it will be denied after this date.
