 On the first school day after important federal workplace safeguards expired for millions of Americans,  Harmony Public Schools’ Executive Board voted to independently provide the much-needed benefits to its 4,000+ employees.

 

The benefits previously were part of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), a federal program which provided American workers a number of workplace safeguards related to COVID-19. Primarily, the benefits included up to 10 Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL) days if an employee was unable to work due to COVID-19 diagnosis, symptoms, possible exposure, or required quarantine for themselves, a family member, or child care provider. 

Those federal benefits expired December 31, 2020. However, The Harmony Public Schools’ Executive Board voted at an emergency meeting Monday night, January 4, to independently extend the same benefits to employees throughout the remainder of the 2020-21 school year.

 

“The Harmony board felt this action was not only an important thing to do, but the right thing to do for our staff and their families,” Harmony CEO Fatih Ay said in a letter to employees  Tuesday. “By offering these benefits, our team members can know that their jobs and livelihoods will not be impacted if they need to seek treatment for COVID-19 or stay home with possible symptoms. Additionally, our student families also can know that Harmony is doing all it can to take care of the team members who take care of their students, and reduce potential COVID-19 exposure on campus.”

On the first school day after important federal workplace safeguards expired for millions of Americans, Harmony Public Schools’ Executive Board voted to independently provide the much-needed benefits to its 4,000+ employees.

January 2021 Menu

The 2019–20 School Report Cards (SRCs) are now available on the Texas Education Agency’s website. The purpose of the SRC is to inform parents and guardians about a campus’ individual characteristics and its academic performance. Due to COVID-19, all campuses and districts received a label of Not Rated: Declared State of Disaster for the 2019–20 school year. Therefore, several data points have not been updated, including STAAR® and academic growth data.
 
If you are unable to access the report electronically and would like a paper copy of the report, please contact your school and ask for a paper copy of the 2019-2020 School Report Card.

Mark your calendar! It is that time again.

Questions About Re-Enrollment?

Why do I need to re-enroll?

By letting us know your student will be coming back to Harmony in 2021-2022, you’ll skip the lottery process and automatically guarantee your child’s spot for next school year!

Who should submit a re-enrollment notice?

The parent/guardian of any current Harmony student who plans to stay at the same campus next school year or who will advance to a “feeder” campus in the new school year (ex. advancing from elementary campus to nearest middle school campus). Students wishing to change to a new, non-feeder campus for other reasons (ex. closer to home) in 2021-2022 should apply through our open enrollment website before February 10.

How do I re-enroll?

Families can submit their re-enrollment notification January 4-22 through the Skyward link at the top of their campus website or by clicking the link in this email. Families without internet or Skyward access should contact their campus for assistance in re-enrolling.

What happens if a parent does not submit their re-enrollment information before the deadline?

If a parent misses the deadline to complete the re-enrollment process, then the student must apply during Open Enrollment (Nov. 1, 2020 through Feb. 10, 2021) at HarmonyTX.org/Apply.

Preguntas sobre ¿Reinscripción?

 

¿Por qué debo volver a inscribirme?

¿Quién debe enviar un aviso de reinscripción?

El padre / tutor de cualquier estudiante actual de Harmony que planea permanecer en la misma escuela el próximo año escolar o que avanzará a un campus “alimentador” en el nuevo año escolar (por ejemplo, avanzando desde el campus de primaria hasta el campus de secundaria más cercano). Los estudiantes que deseen cambiarse a un campus nuevo, no alimentado por otras razones (por ejemplo, más cerca de casa) en 2021-2022 deben presentar su solicitud a través de nuestro sitio web de inscripción abierta antes de 10 del febrero.

¿Cómo me reinscribo?

Las familias pueden enviar su notificación de reinscripción del 4 al 22 del enero a través del Skyward enlace en la parte superior del sitio web de su campus o haciendo clic en el enlace de este correo electrónico. Las familias sin acceso a Internet o Skyward deben comunicarse con su campus para recibir ayuda para volver a inscribirse.
