Food Service Program Parent & Student Survey

 

During the pandemic gathering student input has been a challenge, receiving more student surveys will be valuable to the food service program this summer and for the 21-22 school year.

Please look at our Harmony Website for any schedule changes on Meal Distribution.

-No meal distribution on Monday, May 31st 2021 for Memorial Day.

-No meal distribution on Monday, July 5th 2021 for Independence Day.

 

As the end of the school year quickly approaches, HSAPf needs to collect your students’ school-issued Chromebooks/computers, headsets, hotspots, and textbooks.
HSAPf will be providing a drop off location on campus for you to drive by and turn in all of your students’ borrowed items.
Between the hours of 10:00am and 2:00pm on May 28th, June 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, please stop by campus in the fenced area by the high school cafeteria to return your students’ items.
For ease of checking in materials, please prepare the following:
Chromebooks/Computers, Headsets, and Hotspots – please make sure your chromebook is charged and these items are labeled with your student’s name and Harmony student ID number.  We will check your student’s chromebook to make sure it is in proper working order.  If a chromebook is damaged, you will need to pay the front office for the damaged amount with a check or money order.
Textbooks – we only need back hardcover textbooks.  Please label textbooks with your student’s name and grade.
We do not need any consumable textbooks back (anything your student is allowed to write in) such as Go Math and HMH ELA consumable textbooks.
If your student currently has any other items that belong to the school, you can drop them off with the items listed above.
If you have any questions or are unable to make it to campus during the above days/times, please kristin.johnson@harmonytx.org and we can set up an alternative for returning your students’ items.

The purpose of this announcement is to inform our HPS communities about changes to the Student Success Initiative (SSI) promotion/retention and retesting requirements for the 2020–2021 school year. In light of past and anticipated impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commissioner of Education has waived grade promotion requirements for students in fifth and eighth grade for the 2020–2021 school year.
