Safety First

Parents,

Just a few reminders...

Please make sure to pull in to a parking spot that when you are picking your student up from clubs and tutorials. We can not have the driving areas blocked. This is a hazard for students and the staff. Thank you so much for you help with this matter.

Friendly reminder about cell phones

Please remember that all students must have their cell phones off and in their backpack. If a student is seen with their cell phone, it will be taken up and placed in the front office. We will then need a parent to come to campus and pay the $10 fee. Thank you for your understanding.

CRLP had so much fun!

Ms. Melgarejo’s 8th & 9th grade CRLP had the amazing opportunity to submerge themselves in Texas History on Saturday March 5th by visiting The Bullock Texas History Museum.


Students got to observe antique artifacts that were used in the civil war, as well as paintings made by locals.


At the end of their field trip, students got to watch a documentary in the iMAX theater: Superpower Dogs. Students learned how dogs use their extraordinary sense of smell to detect victims in natural disasters.

ATTENDANCE

If your student is out due to covid 19 like symptoms or exposure it is important to contact the front office or email our attendance clerk Jessica Sanchez at Jessica.sanchez@harmonytx.org. Students who are absent for more then 3 days are required to provide a Dr’s note to excuse the remainder of the absences. If your student is at home awaiting Covid test results, please provide a copy of your scheduled appointment to the attendance clerk. If your student has tested negative but still experiencing symptoms such as fever, the student must stay home for 24 hours and remain fever free without the help of medication. If your student has tested positive for covid 19 please inform our health aide Mary Ordillano at mordillano@harmontyx.org and provide her with the date your student has tested positive and the last time they attended school. Although CDC is recommending 5 days of quarantine, Harmony Public schools is still requiring 10 days of quarantine from the date your student has tested positive. Positive test results must be provided to our attendance clerk to excuse the 10 days. If tested positive, Students may log on to their Schoology and complete assignments remotely and email their teachers using their Harmony email for any additional assignments. If you have any questions, please call the front at 512-251-5000.
