NOTICE FOR ALTERNATIVE MEALS

Nutritious meals are available daily for a price of $0.00 for breakfast, $3.00 for lunch, and $0.50 for a la carte milk.  Each student is provided a lunch account on to which money may be deposited.  Households are encouraged to set up an account in School Cafe (www.schoolcafe.com) to view meal balances, make a payment, set low balance alerts, and schedule automatic payments.  Payments may also be made in the school office.
Should a student’s meal account balance fall below $0, he or she will be allowed to charge up to   -$10.  Once the negative meal account balance limit is reached, the student will receive an alternate meal.  Alternate meals consist of cereal, fruit, and milk for breakfast; and for lunch, a sandwich, vegetable, and milk.  If a student is later approved for free meals, he or she will begin receiving meals immediately.  However, the household is still responsible for paying the negative account balance.
AVISO PARA COMIDAS ALTERNATIVAS
Las comidas nutritivas están disponibles diariamente por un precio de $ 1.60 para el desayuno, $ 3.00 para el almuerzo y $ 0.50 para la leche a la carta. A cada estudiante se le proporciona una cuenta de almuerzo a la cual se puede depositar el dinero. Se alienta a los hogares a abrir una cuenta en School Cafe (www.schoolcafe.com) para ver los saldos de comida, hacer un pago, establecer alertas de saldo bajo y programar pagos automáticos. Los pagos también se pueden hacer en la oficina de la escuela.
Si el saldo de la cuenta de comidas de un estudiante cae por debajo de $ 0, se le permitirá cobrar hasta $ 10. Una vez que se alcanza el límite negativo del saldo de la cuenta de comidas, el estudiante recibirá una comida alternativa. Las comidas alternativas consisten en cereales, frutas y leche para el desayuno; y para el almuerzo, un sándwich, vegetales y leche. Si un estudiante es aprobado posteriormente para recibir comidas gratis, él o ella comenzará a recibir las comidas de inmediato. Sin embargo, el hogar sigue siendo responsable de pagar el saldo negativo de la cuenta.

2017 TEA Accounstability Summary

Harmony Giving Day 2017

Harmony College Fund Graphic


Harmony staff, teachers, and administrators have spent countless of hours preparing our students for college and each year approximately 85% of our graduating class enrolled in a post-secondary institution.

But, despite these impressive enrollment numbers, far too many of our low income and first-time college students drop out as they hit financial and circumstantial barriers such as the cost of attending college, that has increased by 36% in the last 10 years. Harmony Public Schools has 5,033 graduates to date and is projected to have 11,686 graduates by 2020, current funding sources are unable to meet even the current demands of these programs. Clearly, additional financial support is required.

We are asking our Harmony community to consider going beyond educational efforts, providing even greater assistance to our graduates through generous Harmony Giving Day contributions to the Harmony College Fund. All your donations will go towards helping our Harmony graduates to complete their higher education dreams and achieve their career aspirations by providing additional scholarships and direct college and career support services.

Let’s come together to reach our target of raising $50,000 on our first ever giving day.

Thank you for your generosity.
