The Harllee Highlights

Harllee ECC Family Newsletter---Summer 2020 Edition

Principal's Note

July 14, 2020

Hello Hawk Families!

I hope this e-mail finds you and your family healthy and safe! Our Harllee teachers and staff miss our students and families; and are excited to continue planning for the 2020-2021 school year. Although our campus is currently closed for summer vacation and will open next week Monday, July 20th we want to ensure all Harllee families are in the know. We are excited to launch our virtual family newsletter, "The Harllee Highlights." This newsletter will provide families with up to date information so that you can stay connected as information may change quickly during this time. In coming editions we will provide back to school information and introduce new Harllee staff. This information will also be updated on our website.

As we await further details from the district specific to the options for the fall, we want to say how much we have appreciated your support, patience and understanding.Thank you for your participation in the June survey on preferences on your child's learning environment. This survey was not binding and you will be able to update your preferences in August if needed. As we receive information from the district, we will ensure that you have it for your planning purposes. We look forward to being together virtually or in person very soon!

Your Proud Principal,

Amber Shields

Frequently Asked Questions-- Back to School

Q:Will school open in August?

A:Yes, at this time DISD is planning on providing face-to-face school beginning on August 17th. DISD is following CDC, state, and local guidelines and if changes are needed, we will communicate with our parents and community. There is a DISD board meeting scheduled for next Thursday, July 23rd where the district will propose an updated plan.

Q: What if I change my mind and want to pick the other option?

A: At this time we are asking that families stick with one option for an entire grading period. If parents/guardians need to change options, they will contact the school for further instructions.

Q: Can I attend only part-time and then have remote learning at home for other days?

A: No, at this time, parents/guardians must choose to attend at school, or you must choose remote learning at home.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. If you have more questions, please send to Mrs. Shields at
