IMPORTANT ATTENDANCE INFORMATION

Regular school attendance is essential for a student to make the most of his or her education. Absences from class may result in serious disruption of a student’s mastery of the instructional materials; therefore, students and parents should make every effort to avoid unnecessary absences. To receive credit in a class, a student must attend at least 90% of the days the class is offered. These include both excused and unexcused absences.

The state compulsory attendance law requires that a student between the ages of six and 18 must attend school unless the student is otherwise legally exempted or excused. School employees must investigate and report violations of the state compulsory attendance law. A student absent from school without permission will be considered truant and subject to disciplinary action.

In the student handbook, parents are notified that under the Texas Education Code, if a student is absent from school on ten or more days or parts of days within a six-month period in any one school year or is absent for three or more days or parts of days within a four-week period, the parent is subject to prosecution under Texas Education Code § 25.093 and the student is subject to prosecution under Texas Education Code § 25.094 or to referral to a juvenile court in a county with a population of less than 100,000 for conduct that violates that section.

Should you have any questions regarding this information, please contact the school.


Harmony Teacher Job Fair


Harmony Public Schools are hosting two job fairs in the month of April. We are looking for motivated individuals in all content areas. Click here for more information...


ATTENTION: Important Information About Tutorial Dismissal

Beginning Thursday, February 12th, we ask that parents picking students up from after school tutorials do not arrive to the school until 4:10 p.m. Tutorials dismiss at 4:15 p.m.
This is in an effort to keep our Magnet dismissal running smoothly. Back up in traffic is being caused by parents sitting in the car line for tutorial dismissal.
Beginning Thursday, parents waiting for tutorial dismissal will be asked to drive back around in line to not hold traffic up.
If you have any concerns, please email Mrs. Smith at djsmith@harmonytx.org.

On Friday, February 6th, HSART conducted their routine drug dog search of the locker areas and random classrooms.  We are happy to report that our campus got a clear PASS!  We are proud to be a DRUG FREE campus!!!
