Campus Reopening!


Dear Parents,


At this time, HST is planning to reopen the campus on Monday, October 12th, to students who prefer to come to school. We will provide hybrid instruction with both online and in-person options.


Our school will be utilizing the Harmony Playbook to structure our in-person procedures: https://harmonytx.org/playbook


You can make changes to your selection (in-person or online) by going to your Skyward Family account dashboard and click on the Instruction Re-Selection Form (as shown in the picture).


You need to wait for HST to respond to you if you change from online to in-person to make necessary accommodations. It may take up to two weeks to make this accommodation.


You do not need to wait if you change from in-person to online and continue classes online from home right away.


We will continue with the same schedule as we are doing right now and students who come to in-person learning at school will also follow their regular schedule from their chromebooks at school.


Be sure to contact us should you have any questions.

SCHOOL UNIFORMS

Dear HST Parents,

You can purchase the uniforms online and pick it up from the school. You can find all the dress code requirements from Student & Parent Handbook which is posted on the school website( https://hsthouston.harmonytx.org/) under the parents tab.

HST continues its journey on becoming a National School of Character!

Big picture

Harmony School of Technology is on its way to becoming a "Character School", where we work together to make our school stronger in developing core ethical, performance, intellectual, and civic values in our young students with the commitment of helping them to become caring and responsible citizens.


The core values that we want to instill in our young students are Respect, Organized, Achieve and Ready to Learn - R.O.A.R. These core values are the pillars of our 'character culture', helping us grow stronger mentally, socially and emotionally as we strive to become a distinguished Character School using the 11 Principles Framework.


We invite all stakeholders of our school community to join us and help us promote R.O.A.R. We will send surveys to you as we have done in the past to ask how we are doing in our process and make necessary adjustments if needed.

This year we will be doing VIRTUAL HOME VISITS!


Education is at its best when all stakeholders involved share a common vision and passion to see students thrive in and out of the classroom. Families, teachers, and school staff all play vital roles in ensuring excellence in our campus education.


We plan to visit each student one on one with their parents for a few minutes to ensure our students receive the wrap-around support needed for their success. Please email us @Ayse Tas when you are available. It is just a time to get to know each other better and explain a little more about our expectations this year.
