2nd round locker clean out

Harmony Public Schools has made the decision to host this year’s commencement ceremony virtually, due to the growing COVID-19 pandemic, orders from the local government, and recommendations from public health officials.   
We would like to thank you, our Harmony family, for all you are doing to help keep your student focused on their academic achievement during these unique circumstances. We often talk about the importance of a collaborative culture between teachers, school leaders, students, and families. Throughout this crisis, you have continually shown what it’s like for a school system and its families to work as true partners in education. We’re glad you’re a part of our team!
We will continue to update you as specific dates, times, and other details for the virtual graduation ceremony become available.
Wishing you and your family the best,
Harmony Public Schools-El Paso

RSVP for Virtual Open House

Good day, Harmony Families,

We hope this finds you and your family doing well.  As you all know, we are going through this pandemic and dealing with the inconveniences created the best we can. Since our students did not have a chance to take their belongings from their lockers, we created a schedule for this to occur.

This schedule is for 6th – 12th grade students. If you have any questions concerning the belongings of Kinder – 5th grade students, please contact Ms. Glovier via email at vglovier@harmonytx.org

Social distancing must be adhered to.  Student locker clean out will be according to the following schedule, alphabetized BY FIRST NAME. To ensure social distancing, this schedule will be strictly followed.


*Only one person will be allowed to enter the building for each student, whether it be the student or their parent/guardian

*Siblings in the same household may enter together at the scheduled time of either student.  Other than this, no exceptions to the schedule will be made.

*Remain in your vehicle until the scheduled time begins so that we do not have a congregation at the front of the building. 20 minutes will be plenty of time to remove all belongings.



*Wear a face mask covering nose and mouth (even if it is a bandana or shirt)
*Not touch anything except their own locker and belongings

*Remain six feet away from all others at all times

*Be in and out of the building during the allotted 20 minute time frame
*Not report early and/or wait in front of the building – Please stay in your vehicle (or off the property if you walk) until your allotted time begins
*Proceed directly to the locker and then back outside to your vehicle(or leave the property)  No restroom, water fountain or visiting with anybody

*Leave the property as soon as your business is finished

Please be sure to know when you will enter the school according to this schedule, alphabetically by FIRST NAME. No Exceptions will be made.

For any additional questions, please email Mr. Beam at dbeam@harmonytx.org

Dear Harmony Families and Team Members,
Earlier today, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced that all Texas school campuses will remain closed through the remainder of the current school year.
Accordingly, Harmony Public Schools will remain online-only. During this time, we will continue to provide free meal services, as well as chromebook access to those students who need them.
Information about ongoing coursework, grading procedures, end-of-year advancement, student counseling services, and documentation and resources for families with special education needs can continue to be found at HarmonyTX.org/AtHome. We will share more information about graduation for seniors as more information becomes available, and as the Texas Education Agency continues to offer its guidance.
Thank you.

Harmony School of Innovation – El Paso teacher, Henry Salgado, is one of only 28 high school science teachers that has been selected by the SETI institute as a 2020 NASA Airborne Astronomy Ambassador (AAA) and will fly on NASA‘s SOFIA. The teachers selected represent 13 states with only four teachers from Texas and Mr. Salgado is the only teacher selected from El Paso, Tx.

AAA is a professional development program for high school science teachers designed to improve science teaching and increase student learning and STEM engagement. Training includes a week-long immersion experience at NASA‘s Armstrong Flight Research Center Hangar with participation in research flights on NASA‘s Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA). The program culminates in classroom delivery of a SOFIA science-oriented curriculum module.

The SOFIA is a Boeing 747SP aircraft modified to carry a 100 inch reflecting telescope that can fly into the stratosphere at 38,000 – 45,000 feet, which is about 99% above Earth’s infrared-blocking atmosphere allowing astronomers the ability to study the solar system and beyond in ways that are not possible with ground-based telescopes. SOFIA is made possible through a partnership between NASA and the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
“I am honored to have been chosen to be a part of this once in a lifetime program and represent Harmony Public Schools and the El Paso community,” Salgado said. “I can not wait to attend this training and conduct research experiments that will later turn into classroom modules for my students. I hope to inspire others and show them that they too can accomplish anything they set their mind to.”

Dear Parent/Guardians,

Starting Monday, April 6 we will move into phase II of distance learning; digital learning. Our dedicated teachers are ready to start the digital learning journey with you. Chromebooks have been distributed and Google Classrooms have been created to engage our students in continuing their academic excellence.
For your convenience, we have created a helpful video to guide you with Google Classroom. For English please visit https://bit.ly/34akJb9 or for Spanish please visit https://bit.ly/3dQv0xz

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Harmony Public Schools will continue to provide breakfast and lunch for pick up by parents at designated locations throughout the district.  The Texas Department of Agriculture no longer provides funding for Saturday and Sunday meals, so these meals will not be available, beginning the week of Monday April 6th.

Meals will continue to be served “drive-up” style and will be distributed curbside at designated locations on the following days.

Harmony School of Innovation – El Paso

Monday and Thursday

11:00am -12:00 pm


Parents now have the option of picking up meals for their children without them being present in the vehicle.  One meal bag will be issued for each child 18 and under.  However, eligibility must still be verified.  There are three options when picking up meals:

  1. If children are present in the vehicle, no additional documentation is required.
  2. If a parent/guardian requests meals for children enrolled in Harmony Public Schools (not present in the vehicle), no additional documentation is needed since we already have record of eligibility by enrollment.
  3. If a parent/guardian requests meals for children not enrolled in Harmony Public Schools, they must present one of the following documents at the time of pick up.
  • Official letter/email/electronic school application from school listing children enrolled.
  • Individual student report cards
  • Attendance record from parent portal of the school website, printed or electronic, that includes the children names
  • Birth certificate for children not in school
  • Student ID cards

If you have any questions, please contact us.

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.

Harmony at Home Distance Learning

Dear Students/Parents,

This week, we are completing the first phase of our distance learning program, the learning packets. The next phase begins on Monday, April 6, 2020. Students and teachers will go online for a comprehensive digital learning experience that includes elements of independent learning, video-based lessons, and a variety of online software, including Google Classroom.


Students will sign in to my.harmonytx portal to reach integrated software and google classrooms on chromebooks or other devices. Students without computers or access to the internet at home should contact their school. For further details on accessing technology, you may visit https://www.parent.harmonytx.org/athomelearning and Free Internet access for 60 days.)



HPS will utilize Google G-Suite platform to provide learning plans for students. Students will log in to their My Harmony accounts to join the google classrooms by using the codes provided by their teachers. Teachers will use the platform to communicate, provide feedback, and assess the learning progress of their students. Harmony students have already been using blended learning software in their classrooms; software will be integrated into learning plans.

Throughout the next phases, our teachers will be available via email and other digital platforms to provide structure, guidance, and feedback. Once, our teachers set up their google classroom, they will contact you to start the online learning experience. Information regarding grading and high school credits will be shared later.

Please visit, https://harmonytx.org/athome for a comprehensive plan and a sample daily schedule you can follow.


For students in special education and 504 programs, accommodations and/or modifications will be implemented to the extent appropriate and possible by our teachers in google classrooms (technology may have some limitations).  For students in pullout programs, our special education teachers will create google classrooms, provide resources and support virtually to the extent appropriate and possible (technology may have some limitations). We are still working on a plan regarding provision of speech therapy and related services, ARDs, 504 meetings, and FIEs. For all of these matters, we are following guidelines from the State of Texas and the Department of Education, which is still forthcoming and additional changes may be made as we receive further instruction. Your patience is appreciated as we work to ensure student needs are met.

Distance Learning Plan

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,


Fatih Ay

CEO | Harmony Public Schools

Grab and go meal service


Now that our schools are closed through at least April 6 and our communities are being asked to “stay home, work safe,” Harmony is making an adjustment to our meal service pick-up options.

Beginning this Monday, March 30, we will offer twice-a-week meal pickup—on Monday & Thursdays—in which families can pick up meals for an entire week. Monday’s pickup will be for lunch and breakfast Mon-Wed and Thursday’s pickup will be for lunch and breakfast for the remainder of the week (to include the weekend).

Meals will continue to be served from 11am – 12 pm drive-up style and will be available for all car passengers under age 18, regardless of enrollment status.

We look forward to continuing to serve you, and stay well!

Parent travel authorization for meal pick up

A Stay Home, Work Safe order has been issued by the City and County of El Paso, beginning March 24th at 11:59 pm. Parents can continue to come to our schools for our drive- thru meal pick-up, as that is considered an essential activity.

To avoid possible delays, please print and display the placard we have created in your car window.

We will continue to update you as new information becomes available. Please stay safe and healthy!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

In order to continue to meet the academic needs of our students, we are gathering information about their ability to continue learning at home using online materials and/or a virtual classroom in the event of an extended school closure. Please complete the following survey to help us understand the availability of the internet and devices in your home. This will allow us to determine what support we can provide our students to support continued learning at home. Please complete the survey by Thursday, March 26th, 1 pm.

Here is the link for the survey :

Harmony Public Schools campuses are closed until April 3rd. Our goal is to maximize learning during this time and keep our students engaged. Our curriculum directors have prepared self-study modules for the four core content areas for each grade level for our students. The learning packets are available for pickup Tuesday, March 24th from 1pm – 3pm. Students are asked to complete the work and submit to their teachers when they return to campus.

If you are unable to pick up your packets in person, they are also available online.


We will continue to provide education to the best of our abilities while prioritizing the well-being and safety of our students, families, teachers, and staff. #HarmonyAtHome
