The Senior wall is up! The High School Counselors and the students worked hard to get this up. It is always an exciting day to be able to see all of their hard work and the colleges that they have been accepted to! #hsapfhasheart

Did you know...

Today, April Fools' Day materializes as different customs around the world.

In Ireland and Scotland, the Flemish idea of “fools errands” has been adapted, culminating in a gag in which a person is asked to deliver a letter, which infinitely instructs the recipient to have the messenger bring it to someone else, and so on. In France, where the day is known as poisson d'avril, or “April Fish,” pranksters attach paper fish to the backs of unsuspecting people. In the United Kingdom and the United States, people carry on the popularized tradition of shouting “April Fool” or “April Fool's” after carrying out practical jokes; while, in Poland, not a single word should be taken at face value until noon.

Ultimately, while its origins and traditions may appear to blur, it's crystal clear that, to cultures around the world, April Fools' Day is no joke!

Attendance Update

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.


ASISTENCIA

Si su estudiante está fuera debido a síntomas o exposición similares a covid 19, es importante que se comunique con la oficina principal o envíe un correo electrónico a nuestra secretaria de asistencia su correo es Jessica.sanchez@harmonytx.org. Los estudiantes que estén ausentes por más de 3 días deben proporcionar una nota del médico para justificar el resto de las ausencias. Si su estudiante está en casa esperando los resultados de la prueba de Covid 19, proporcione una copia de su cita programada al empleado de asistencia. Si su estudiante dio negativo pero aún experimenta síntomas como fiebre, el estudiante debe quedarse en casa durante 24 horas y permanecer sin fiebre sin la ayuda de medicamentos. Si su estudiante dio positivo por covid 19, informe a nuestra asistente de salud su correo es mordillano@harmontyx.org y proporciónele la fecha en que su estudiante dio positivo y la última vez que asistió a la escuela. Aunque los CDC recomiendan 5 días de cuarentena, las escuelas públicas de Harmony aún requieren 10 días de cuarentena a partir de la fecha en que su estudiante dio positivo. Los resultados positivos de las pruebas deben proporcionarse a nuestro empleado de asistencia para excusar los 10 días. Si la prueba da positivo, los estudiantes pueden iniciar sesión en su Schoology y completar las tareas de forma remota y enviar un correo electrónico a sus maestros usando su correo electrónico de Harmony para cualquier tarea adicional. Si tiene alguna pregunta, llame al frente al 512-251-5000.
