Back to SchoolFirst Day of School

Wednesday, August 5th – First Bell rings at 8:00am. We understand that you want to walk your child in for their first day, and we welcome you to do that on Wednesday.  However, we ask that you only do this on the first day. Beginning Thursday, please drop your children off at their designated building, and someone will be there to make sure they get to class.  This is just another measure to ensure all of our students are kept safe and healthy, which is our first priority.

Bottled water will be provided to students each day instead of using the water fountains, but you are welcome to send a personal water bottle for your child.

We are excited to announce the school will be providing school supplies for all Harmony students this year!

Parents will only need to purchase a backpack.

 

Back to School COVID-19 Protocol

The following plan has been created to allow our students to return to school for the 2020-2021 school year in the safest manner possible. The unprecedented times of the COVID-19 Pandemic are constantly changing which means our response must also change at times. We ask for your cooperation, flexibiity, and patience as we strive educate your child during these extraordinary times. Thank you in advance for working along with us to protect each and every student at Harmony School. 

 

Daily Screening

  1. Parents will screen using provided checklist; if parents send their child to school, they are certifying that student is healthy.  School may check temperature at the door.
  2. Staff will screen themselves.  If they come to work, they are certifying they are healthy.

 

At School Procedures

Isolation Room: Any student or staff memberr who exhibits a fever of 100 degrees or more will be instantly isolated in a predetermined isolation room and immediately sent home. After being sent home, the student or staff member cannot return to school until one of the following criteria is met:
