    The Harper Park community can keep up with German on Twitter!  Do not feel obligated to follow the account--the account is public, and easily viewable on all devices!
     
    (if there are sudden county wide power outages, and LCPS email issues, this is the fastest and easiest "last resort" way I can relay a general message to families while I work around the issue.  I also post interesting German stuff!)
