Dear Harmony Parent / Guardian:

 

The district’s current vended meal provider has closed their local facility and will no longer be providing meals to Texas schools.  On April 18, the school’s new meal provider, The Basil Garden, will begin providing a healthy breakfast and lunch for students.  Meals continue to be free this year for all students, so we encourage your child(ren) to try the new meals.

The April menus will be posted on the school website and attached below.

The menu for the rest of the school year will offer one entree, fruit, vegetable, and milk.  Not every day will offer a vegetarian entree.  If your child(ren) follows a vegetarian diet, please email the Child Nutrition Assistant at your child’s school to obtain the form needing to be completed.  Once the form is received, the CNA will make sure that your child has a vegetarian entree on days when one is not on the regular menu.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Child Nutrition Assistant at your child’s school.

 

Sincerely,

Child Nutrition

Estimado padre / tutor de Harmony:

 

El actual proveedor de comida del distrito ha cerrado sus instalaciones locales y ya no proporcionará comidas a las escuelas de Texas. El 18 de abril, el nuevo proveedor de comidas de la escuela, Basil Garden, comenzará a ofrecer un desayuno y almuerzo saludables para los estudiantes. Las comidas continúan siendo gratis este año para todos los estudiantes, así que animamos a su(s) hijo(s) a probar las nuevas comidas.

Los menús de abril se publicarán en el sitio web de la escuela.

El menú para el resto del año escolar ofrecerá un entree, fruta, verdura y leche. No todos los días ofrecerá un entree vegetariano. Si su(s) hijo(s) sigue una dieta vegetariana, por favor envíe un correo electrónico al Asistente de Nutrición Infantil en la escuela de su hijo(a) para obtener el formulario que necesita ser completado. Una vez recibido el formulario, la CNA se asegurará de que su hijo tenga un entrante vegetariano en los días en que uno no esté en el menú regular.

Si tiene alguna pregunta o inquietud, comuníquese con el Asistente de Nutrición Infantil en la escuela de su hijo.

 

Atentamente,

Nutrición Infantil

Each school year, thousands of families submit their application to become a part of Harmony Public Schools.

Here’s how we select applicants for enrollment each year to make sure each applicant has an equal opportunity to become our next high-achieving Harmony scholar.

STEP 1

Each January, we ask current families to let us know if they’ll be coming back to Harmony next year. This is called “Re-Enrollment.”

STEP 2

Based on the number of students returning next year and the number of classes in each grade level, we determine how many open spots we will have for new students.

STEP 3

Meanwhile, new families are submitting their applications during our annual Open Enrollment season, which runs from November 1 through February 10 each year.

STEP 4

After February 10, if the number of new applicants is greater than the number of available spots we have, Harmony holds a “blind lottery” to make sure all applicants have a fair opportunity to be seated.

STEP 5

Families of students selected for enrollment are notified. Those not selected are put on a “waitlist” and contacted as soon as a spot opens up.

… and that’s it!

Here are some answers to our applicants’ most frequently asked questions.

#1 – IS THERE ALWAYS A LOTTERY?

Not always, but often.

Whether a lottery is needed is determined by the number of spots available at each grade level and the number of eligible applicants interested in them.

#2 – I WAS SELECTED FOR ENROLLMENT –
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO NEXT?

Most importantly, we need you to officially accept the spot (a link will be provided on the acceptance letter). Then, between now and next fall, you’ll need to officially register your child and provide a few documents verifying their identity and home address.

After that, we’ll see you on the first day of school!

(Note: If you were accepted by more than one campus, please register at your preferred campus and decline the invitation of any others. This will allow us to offer those spots to another prospective Harmony family.)

#3 – I WAS PLACED ON A WAITLIST –
IS THERE ANY CHANCE I WILL GET TO ATTEND?

Absolutely – so don’t give up hope! Students initially placed on a waitlist are given the opportunity to enroll all the time at Harmony, often for one of the following reasons:

  • A student who was initially selected in the lottery didn’t completion registration by the deadline.
  • A student who was initially selected in the lottery moved away.
  • A student was selected by two schools in the lottery, but of course could only register at one.
  • We added an an extra class at the grade level for which you applied.
  • One of our nearby campuses had an opening,
    and reached out to see if you were interested in attending there.
