HSA-FW WEDNESDAY MAIL
SEPTEMBER 16, 2020
Wow, we are halfway through the quarter already. Please check your scholar’s grade book in Skyward to keep up to date on his/her grades. If you have any questions about missing work or assignments, please reach out to the designated teacher.
Great job on MAP testing last week. This was a different way of testing for all of us, and everyone did terrific with the changes. This is going to be a helpful piece of data for the teachers to determine where your child needs additional support and what they are ready to begin learning.

HARMONY HEALTH SERVICES NOTIFICATIONS
Welcome to the 2020 school year! This year will be challenging, with many changes in education and the world at large. To help you navigate the School Health specific challenges for this year, we would like to make you aware of the following:
Regardless of attendance on campus or virtually, your child is required by state law to submit completed vaccine records or original copy of the affidavit of reasons of conscience from the state to be enrolled. For current students, the deadline for submission was August 17th. For newly enrolled students, the deadline for submission is September 16th. After these dates the campus will be required to unenroll your student. Please make sure complete copies of your records are submitted before this deadline.
To reduce risk of exposure to students and staff, students will be seen for medications and scheduled treatments or illness concerns or scheduled appointments only. Students who display signs of illness will be quarantined and must be picked up by the parent within 1 hour. Students who do not display signs of illness needing quarantining will be returned to class. This helps us keep students who are ill from unintentionally infecting students who are healthy during clinic visits. Thank you for your support.
The State mandated screenings for students in targeted grades is still being required for this school year. If you have selected distance learning, you will be contacted regarding your child’s screening appointment in the near future. If you would prefer your child to not be screened they will need to have their doctor’s screening evaluations for the age and grade appropriate screening submitted to the clinic before the screening date.
Health guidelines including plans to keep your child healthy can be found in the Harmony Public Schools Back to School Playbook here: https://www.harmonytx.org/play
