Good afternoon parents:

We are working hard to prepare and launch google classrooms for our students to continue learning during this time. Prior to spring break students were sent home with a letter that contained instructions on how to access the student harmony portal. This is a one sign on location where students can access their google classroom and their software programs. Students use this on a daily basis and are familiar with how to log in. 

Just a reminder the my portal site is  my.harmonytx.org. Student username is their ID # and the password is 123asd. 

Prior to the launch we ask that you watch this parent video to familiarize yourself with the functions of google classroom. This will make the transition easier for parents, students and staff.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfgqtCi7hdo

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.
