HSI-Euless CIP

Dear HSI – Euless Families, 

Our campus will once again be participating in Spring STAAR Interim/Mock testing. STAAR Interim/Mock testing will take place the week of February 21 – 23 (Monday – Wednesday). Testing will begin promptly at 8:00 AM and will be completed by 11:00 AM.  Students will resume normal schedules for the rest of the day. 

The schedule will be as follows:

Grade Subject Date
5th Science 02/21/2022
3rd/4th/5th Math 02/22/2022
3rd/4th/5th Reading 02/23/2022

As a reminder, the campus will be closed to all visitors, including parents, on testing days.  This includes lunch drop-offs.  Also, please do not plan on picking up your child early on a day he/she is testing (Avoid scheduling doctor’s appointments on these dates) as students are not allowed to resume an unfinished test. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

To ensure your child’s success on STAAR Interim/Mock Assessment, please do the following: 

  1. Make sure your child is well-rested and has a healthy breakfast,
  2. Ensure your child arrives on time to school (by 7:30 am),
  3. Mentally prepare your child for the testing day,
  4. Please remind your child to use their testing strategies as best as they can.

Students who need breakfast will need to be at school before 7:20 am to ensure they have enough time to eat breakfast before testing begins. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email Mr. Kartal at akartal@harmonytx.org 

Sincerely,

Haci Ali Kartal, 

Testing and Federal Programs & Engagement Coordinator

Each school year, thousands of families submit their application to become a part of Harmony Public Schools.

Here’s how we select applicants for enrollment each year to make sure each applicant has an equal opportunity to become our next high-achieving Harmony scholar.

STEP 1

Each January, we ask current families to let us know if they’ll be coming back to Harmony next year. This is called “Re-Enrollment.”

STEP 2

Based on the number of students returning next year and the number of classes in each grade level, we determine how many open spots we will have for new students.

STEP 3

Meanwhile, new families are submitting their applications during our annual Open Enrollment season, which runs from November 1 through February 10 each year.

STEP 4

After February 10, if the number of new applicants is greater than the number of available spots we have, Harmony holds a “blind lottery” to make sure all applicants have a fair opportunity to be seated.

STEP 5

Families of students selected for enrollment are notified. Those not selected are put on a “waitlist” and contacted as soon as a spot opens up.

… and that’s it!

Here are some answers to our applicants’ most frequently asked questions.

#1 – IS THERE ALWAYS A LOTTERY?

Not always, but often.

Whether a lottery is needed is determined by the number of spots available at each grade level and the number of eligible applicants interested in them.

#2 – I WAS SELECTED FOR ENROLLMENT –
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO NEXT?

Most importantly, we need you to officially accept the spot (a link will be provided on the acceptance letter). Then, between now and next fall, you’ll need to officially register your child and provide a few documents verifying their identity and home address.

After that, we’ll see you on the first day of school!

(Note: If you were accepted by more than one campus, please register at your preferred campus and decline the invitation of any others. This will allow us to offer those spots to another prospective Harmony family.)

#3 – I WAS PLACED ON A WAITLIST –
IS THERE ANY CHANCE I WILL GET TO ATTEND?

Absolutely – so don’t give up hope! Students initially placed on a waitlist are given the opportunity to enroll all the time at Harmony, often for one of the following reasons:

  • A student who was initially selected in the lottery didn’t completion registration by the deadline.
  • A student who was initially selected in the lottery moved away.
  • A student was selected by two schools in the lottery, but of course could only register at one.
  • We added an an extra class at the grade level for which you applied.
  • One of our nearby campuses had an opening,
    and reached out to see if you were interested in attending there.
