Dear Harmony Parents/Guardians,
Harmony Public Schools looks forward to educating your children during the 2020-2021 school year. We
have prepared this letter to inform you of Harmony’s policies and procedures as they relate to your
students’ attendance and academic success.
Please remind your student and keep these important absence points in mind:
- When your student is absent from school, we must know that you are aware of that absence.
Therefore, parents must contact their school campus EACH DAY a student is absent.
- If a student is absent and we have not heard from that student’s parents or guardians, we will
notify the parent or guardian through the contact information on file. For this reason, it is most
important that you provide us your latest and best contact information.
- Upon return to school, students have 3 days to provide a note of excuse that has been signed by
their parent/guardian or the medical provider. The note must describe the reason for the
- Page 14 of our Student/Parent Handbook provides a list of excused and unexcused absences.
*Unless your student is specifically exempt from compulsory attendance, your student will be placed in
our Truancy Prevention Measure (TPM) program at their campus to address your student’s attendance.
Please refer to the HPS 2020-2021 Student/Parent Handbook for additional information. We encourage
our students to attend school on a regular basis to achieve academic success.
