Dear Harmony Families and Team Members,
Earlier today, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced that all Texas school campuses will remain closed through the remainder of the current school year.
Accordingly, Harmony Public Schools will remain online-only. During this time, we will continue to provide free meal services, as well as chromebook access to those students who need them.
Information about ongoing coursework, grading procedures, end-of-year advancement, student counseling services, and documentation and resources for families with special education needs can continue to be found at HarmonyTX.org/AtHome. We will share more information about graduation for seniors as more information becomes available, and as the Texas Education Agency continues to offer its guidance.
Thank you.
Harmony Public Schools

Dear Parent/Guardians,

Starting Monday, April 6 we will move into phase II of distance learning; digital learning. Our dedicated teachers are ready to start the digital learning journey with you. Chromebooks have been distributed and Google Classrooms have been created to engage our students in continuing their academic excellence.
For your convenience, we have created a helpful video to guide you with Google Classroom. For English please visit https://bit.ly/34akJb9 or for Spanish please visit https://bit.ly/3dQv0xz

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Harmony Public Schools will continue to provide breakfast and lunch for pick up by parents at designated locations throughout the district.  The Texas Department of Agriculture no longer provides funding for Saturday and Sunday meals, so these meals will not be available, beginning the week of Monday April 6th.

Meals will continue to be served “drive-up” style and will be distributed curbside at designated locations on the following days.

Harmony School of Excellence – El Paso

Monday and Thursday

11:00 am -12:00 pm

 

Parents now have the option of picking up meals for their children without them being present in the vehicle.  One meal bag will be issued for each child 18 and under.  However, eligibility must still be verified.  There are three options when picking up meals:

  1. If children are present in the vehicle, no additional documentation is required.
  2. If a parent/guardian requests meals for children enrolled in Harmony Public Schools (not present in the vehicle), no additional documentation is needed since we already have record of eligibility by enrollment.
  3. If a parent/guardian requests meals for children not enrolled in Harmony Public Schools, they must present one of the following documents at the time of pick up.
  • Official letter/email/electronic school application from school listing children enrolled.
  • Individual student report cards
  • Attendance record from parent portal of the school website, printed or electronic, that includes the children names
  • Birth certificate for children not in school
  • Student ID cards

If you have any questions, please contact us.

Harmony Public Schools is encouraging our families to take a few moments to complete the 2020 U.S. Census online, by phone, or mail.

The 2020 Census is a count of everyone who lives in the United States and its territories. The 2020 Census questionnaire asks a few simple questions like the age, sex, and the number of people living in your home.  Individual responses are confidential and cannot be used against you by any court or government agency.

When it comes to schools, the 2020 Census will determine funding for special education, teacher training, technology, school lunch assistance, Head Start and after-school programs. The census will also help determine funding for other important programs for families, such as maternal and child health programs, and housing, heating and food assistance.

People should count all children who live in their homes, including newborns and others too young for school. That’s important because responses to the census help schools plan for the resources they will need when the new generation of children is ready for school.

To begin, click here or call one of the numbers below, or look for the Census form in your mail.
