Kindergarten Parents - Bring Extra Clothes (just in case)

Hey Kinder parents, there have been some situations where students have needed a change of clothes. Please always keep an extra full set of clothes in their bags...just in case! Be sure to email your teacher with any questions.

Cool Weather is Coming!

No hooded jackets and sweaters are allowed to be brought to school. Preferably buy the Harmony School jacket.

While waiting on the arrival of Harmony jackets, students may wear a plain, dark colored jacket (black, navy blue, dark gray).

Label your students jacket include full name, grade and section.

Drive Safely - for Your Kid and for Others

There have been some scary close calls both in our parking lot and on Gessner...we don't want an accident to occur that could hurt our students, families, or staff.

  • Drive SLOWLY in our parking lot - slow enough that if a kid darts out between cars, you can stop (the 10 seconds you save speeding through isn't worth a life)

  • Obey the School Zone speed limits

  • Watch the accelerator as you move in pickup lines and especially when exiting our parking lots - we have seen people "lead-foot" it out of our lots and almost hit pedestrians and other cars

  • DO NOT park across the street and walk to get your student. There have been very devastating accidents at the Brookhollow intersection - and people coming over the bridge may not see a pedestrian in time to stop

HSE Tardy Policy

Dear Parents,

Please be reminded that it is the parent’s responsibility to discuss the school’s tardy policy with their child, reinforcing the student’s ability to be responsible for arriving to class on time and most importantly, it is the parent’s responsibility to bring the student to school on time.

Starting Monday, 9/27/2021, parents who bring their children to school after 7:45 a.m. must park their car, enter the building, and sign their child in at the front office.

Families can refer to page 19 of the Student & Parent Handbook for more details. Below are the consequences for multiple tardies:

  • 1-3 Verbal warning to parents
  • 4-5 Written warning to parents
  • 6-9 Conference with parents
  • 10+ Parent must meet with principal or designee and submit a letter explaining the reason(s) for the excessive tardiness. Failure to meet this requirement may result in the school filing a case with Child Protective Services.

New Front Office Hours

**2021-2022 HSE Front Office Hours**

M, T, Th, F: 7:45 a.m. - 2:45 p.m. | 4:00- 4:30 p.m.

Harmony Mask Policy

Harmony Mask Policy

(Effective Immediately)

  1. Masks will be required for all persons inside Harmony Public Schools buildings and transportation services (ex. buses). If an individual does not have a mask, one will be provided.
  2. For students and staff members who are unable to wear a mask, a mask exception form is available in each student and staff member’s Skyward account.

When it comes to masks, there may be no perfect policy for all families. Masks have become one of the more hotly debated issues of our time. The one thing we can all agree on, though, is that we all look forward to a day when no one needs to wear a mask.

In the late spring and early summer, many of us believed that day was close. Unfortunately, it’s not quite here yet. But by working together, we will get there – hopefully soon.

For now, we’re asking for Harmony to mask up. It’s good science, and it’s what is best for kids. Thank you.
