Greetings Esteemed Hawks,

 

I hope that you had an amazing summer and are ready to return to school!  We are excited to begin another academic year to better help you achieve your greatest academic and professional goals.  With this being said, please note the following regarding AP courses and AP Appeal Requests:

1) Scholars who were not placed in the original AP roster may appeal the decision.  Scholars must submit 1 AP Appeal Form per class that they wish to appeal.

2) The completed AP Appeal Form must be turned in by Wednesday, August 19th, 2020.  AP Appeal Forms will not be accepted beyond August 19th, 2020, 11:59PM.

3) You may access the AP Appeal Form here.  Download the form, type the requested information, and e-mail the completed form to Mr. C. Cantu at <ccantu@harmonytx.org>.

4) The AP Committee, composed of other educators, will review the appeal form and determine whether the scholar is eligible to be admitted into the course.  The scholar’s name will not be shared until an approval/denial decision has been finalized.

5) We project for AP appeal decisions to be finalized by Friday, August 28.

6) If the scholar is admitted into the AP course, the scholar must complete a portion of the AP summer assignment as communicated by the teacher.

7) Due to the nature of scheduling, some scholars may require an extensive schedule change to be placed into the course.  There is a rare likelihood that the scholar won’t be able to be placed into the course even if their appeal is approved.

8) For questions regarding the AP Appeal Form, you may contact Mr. C. Cantu at  <ccantu@harmonytx.org>.

9) For questions regarding schedules, you may contact your respective academic counselor:

  1. a) 9: L. Cantu <lcantu@harmonytx.org>

Distance Learning Plan

 

Dear Scholars and 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, April 6th, 2020​. S​tudents 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 Chromebook or other devices. Students without computers or access to the internet at home should contact their school. ​ For further details on accessing technology, you may visit​  https://www.parent.harmonytx.org/athomelearning ​ and Free Internet access for 60 day​s

 GOOGLE CLASSROOM

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 G​oogle classroom,​ they will contact you to start the online learning experience. Information regarding grading and high school credits will be shared later.

Below, you will find the comprehensive plan and a sample daily schedule you can follow.

Dear Parents,
The safety of our students and staff is our top priority at Harmony Public Schools. As new developments continue to unfold regarding the COVID-19 situation, we wanted to provide you an important update regarding the potential impact of the virus on our schools.
While there have been no cases of COVID-19 reported on our campuses or within our school family at this time, out of an abundance of caution we are announcing a ​temporary closure of all Harmony Public Schools campuses through Monday, April 6​.
All school activities, field trips, athletics events, and competitions have also been cancelled during this time. At this time, we anticipate that ​classes will resume for students onTuesday, April 7​.
This decision was made after discussions with and upon the recommendations of local health officials. We strongly believe it is the best decision for helping to keep our students, staff, and communities safe at this time.
During this closure, our Harmony team members will continue to work remotely to finalize the details of a distance-learning plan to make sure students continue to receive educational services with minimal interruption. You will receive regular updates on how this plan will be implemented.
We continue to urge families and team members to stay informed of current Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines related to the prevention of the spreading of viruses, including limiting out of town travel, “social distancing,” and self-quarantining for those who have recently traveled to impacted areas.
We recognize this is a rapidly evolving situation and will continue to aggressively monitor new developments and respond with appropriate actions based on the best interests of our Harmony families and the guidance of local health officials. Throughout this process, we will continue to communicate with you new information as soon as possible.
Thank you for your support during these unusual circumstances. With your continued collaboration, together we can provide a healthy learning environment for our students and staff.

Esteemed Harmony Parents,
Harmony Public Schools is proactively monitoring the current status of the coronavirus and will continue to follow the guidance of our local health authorities. Our top priority is to keep all our Harmony families and students informed so they can remain healthy and safe.
As you are aware, our campus will have spring break between March 16th through March 20th. During this time, maintenance will ​thoroughly clean and disinfect our campus, including student electronics (chromebooks, headphones, laptops, etc.), with the recommendations provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
If you travel to CDC-identified high-risk sites, prom​ptly notify your child’s teacher and campus administrator. Harmony teachers and staff are also advised of these recommendations.
If your child or anyone in your household feel sick leading up to the return to school, we strongly advise you to stay home and visit your family doctor for clearance prior to returning to school.
We thank you for entrusting your child with Harmony Public Schools and appreciate that you are doing your part to ensure that your child remains healthy and safe at all times. ​Classes are currently scheduled to resume on MONDAY, MARCH 23.​ If there is any change, we will provide you with necessary updates.
In the event that we must close school for a longer period of time, we want our scholars to be prepared to continue their learning at home. Therefore, they will be expected to complete assignments at home for class credit and grades. These assignments will be available online via the links/code below. To better accommodate our Harmony family, we will also print the assignments upon request from 9:00AM-3:00PM on March 24th (Tuesday) and March 25th (Wednesday).
