WE MISS YOU!
Dear Students and Families,
We miss seeing you all every day during school hours. We hope this newsletter provides some information to assist all of you. Your school admins and teachers are here to address any concerns and answer questions during the duration of our time out of school.
It is important for you all to pay attention to any and all communications from HST, admins, and individual teachers. Parents, please be sure you are receiving school messenger email, and phone messages or Tiger News (weekly newsletter). Contact Mrs. Tas at email@example.com if you are not so that it may be fixed. Students, make sure you are getting Google Classroom notifications.

STUDENTS DISTANCE LEARNING
Dear HST Students/Parents,
This week, we are completing the first phase of our distance learning program, the learning packets. Remember to complete your learning packets and return once classes resume. The next phase begins on Monday, March 30, 2020. Students and teachers will go online for a comprehensive digital learning experience that includes elements of independent learning, video-based lessons, and a variety of online software, including Google Classroom.
ACCESS to TECHNOLOGY
Students will sign in to my.harmonytx portal to reach integrated software and google classrooms on chromebooks or other devices. Students without computers or access to the internet at home should contact their school at (firstname.lastname@example.org).
HPS will utilize Google G-Suite platform to provide learning plans for students. Students will log in to their My Harmony accounts to join the google classrooms by using the codes provided by their teachers. Teachers will use the platform to communicate, provide feedback, and assess the learning progress of their students. Harmony students have already been using blended learning software in their classrooms; software will be integrated into learning plans.
Throughout the next phases, our teachers will be available via email and other digital platforms to provide structure, guidance, and feedback. Once, our teachers set up their google classroom, they will contact you to start the online learning experience. Information regarding grading will be shared later.
Below, you will find the comprehensive plan and a sample daily schedule you can follow and all the google classroom codes for our teachers.
