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.
CENSUS BY PHONE:
Dear Harmony Families & Team Members,
For the past 20 years, Harmony Public Schools has established an educational model built strongly on the foundations of science-based learning and responsible citizenship in our communities.
Currently, all available science from community health experts continues to tell us that the best way to be responsible members of our communities is to have our students and staff remain at home.
This is why we have determined that it is in the best interest of our students, team members, and communities to discontinue in-person schooling at our campuses and administrative offices statewide until further notice.
While these facilities remain closed, instruction and learning at Harmony schools will continue. Our classes are operating online through our established digital learning tools, taking advantage of many of the technology tools and blended learning methods already practiced in Harmony’s physical classrooms. Because our teachers and school leaders will remain available to guide our students each school day, we anticipate instructional continuity during these unusual and difficult times. To request access to a Chromebook and/or for questions regarding internet access, please contact your child’s campus.
(For more information on our at-home learning program, visit HarmonyTX.org/AtHome . To request access to a Chromebook or internet access, contact your child’s campus.)
We will also continue to offer free meal services to children in our communities, as local and state safety guidelines allow.
We thank you for your support and understanding in making this critical decision. We also are profoundly grateful for the extreme determination and Harmony pride shown by both our students and team members these past several weeks. Time and again you have proven why Harmony Public Schools is an institution where excellence is the standard.
We will continue to provide timely updates as new, relevant information comes available, and inform you immediately if our campuses reopen prior to the end of the school year.
Thank you and be well,
CEO | Harmony Public Schools
As we are preparing to transition into online learning, we understand that some families have challenges with lack of computer devices at home. In order to help those families, our school has prepared a limited number of chromebooks to be distributed to students.
In order to be eligible to get a chromebook from school, you must complete and submit this online request form , which includes chromebook agreement form. Please do not come to school without filling out the online form to request a chromebook.
Please understand that we have a limited number of chromebooks so we are reserving chromebooks only for those who do not have any computer devices at home. If you have siblings at the same campus, only 1 chromebook will be issued per family.
After you fill out and submit the above form, please come to campus either on Tuesday, March 24 or Wednesday, March 25 between 11 am – 1 pm. (Learning Packets will also be distributed during those times). Students must be present with you in the car in order to get the chromebook. Devices will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you have already printed the packet and don’t need a chromebook, you do not need to come to school. However, if you need to pick up a packet and/or a chromebook you have to come to school at the above mentioned hours and days.
We are doing our best and working expeditiously to offer everyone equal opportunity during this online learning process and hope to make this process as smooth as possible. Please be patient during pick up process as you may need to wait in line. All pick up will be done as a drive through at the blue car rider line.

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 are anticipating classes will be able to resume for students on Tuesday, April 7. Staff will return for a work-day on Monday, April 6.
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 distance-learning plan to make sure students continue to receive educational services with minimal interruption.You will receive regular updates how this plan will be implemented.
Additionally, all full-time, non-exempt and exempt employees will continue to be paid according to their normal rate and schedule.
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-quarantine 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. We anticipate further updates no later than the week of March 23-27.
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.
As students return from spring break, we would like to ask the Harmony community for your renewed diligence in helping our schools maintain the best-practices for clean campuses established before break.
That of course includes the normal requests regarding washing hands, covering your mouth when coughing, and staying home when sick. However, we also need your help keeping viruses and germs contained by asking your student to immediately report to their campus health office if their experience any of the following symptoms while at school:
Additionally, families should be aware that any student returning from a travel area on the CDC list of at-risk countries for COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) MUST see their medical provider before returning to campus. Students will have 48 hours to submit a clearance letter from their doctor before returning to campus. After this, student absences will not be excused. A student cannot return until they have clearance from their doctor or have finished quarantine if medically recommended.
With your continued support and collaboration, together we can provide a healthy learning environment for our students and staff.
