Harrison Central Elementary School parents were surprised to learn the school expects them to pay the postage on report cards delivered to their homes.

The school sent a letter home with students Monday advising parents and guardians to send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to teachers by May 12 so report cards can be mailed at the end of the year.

Superintendent Roy Gill said sending the envelope is needed only if parents do not want to either pick the report cards up in person or access them online.

The letter also advised parents of the start of annual state testing for students, which will take place over the next month.

Gill said he would contact the school principal to try to settle the matter.
