Frequently Asked Questions

The size and color I want are still out of stock – what can I do?
Our partners at French Toast are working hard to get more colors and sizes in stock as soon as possible. To get an automatic update when your uniform preference is ready to purchase, just enter your email in the ‘Notify Me’ box under the product ‘Out of Stock’ message.

Can my child still wear uniforms that were purchased previously?
Of course! If your child’s uniform is still in good condition, they are welcome to continue wearing uniforms from previous years, even if the campus has updated to a new uniform color scheme.

The free shipping code isn’t working – what’s up?
The free shipping code – HPSPOLO – is for orders of two items are more, so just make sure you have enough items to qualify for free shipping in your cart. If you’re still experiencing issues, please contact Customer Service at https://www.frenchtoast.com/contact-us.

Which uniform color do I need for my child?
When ordering new uniforms and polos, the following are the approved color schemes for each grade level:

The uniform color options don’t look like the ones I see above
– is something wrong?
There might be a minor color variation between the preview image on the French Toast website and the images above, but not by much. If the uniform you’re selecting doesn’t look right, just make sure you have the correct dress code selected from the drop down near the top of your screen.

Why can’t I just order uniforms directly at my campus anymore?
Unfortunately, year-round direct sales of school uniforms can be a complicated and time-consuming process for an individual campus. We’d rather put our team’s talents to use by serving our students. By partnering with an industry-leading school uniform supply company like French Toast, Harmony is able to keep uniform costs down for families while freeing up school staff (and storage space!) to focus on the other needs of our schools.

No returns or exchanges.
Uniforms will no longer be available for purchase at campuses.

Dear Parents and Guardians-

MAP testing will take place on Wednesday, April 20th  (Math)  and Thursday, April 21st (Reading) for Kinder-2nd grade students. This is an opportunity for students to show the progress that they have made from winter to spring. MAP testing is an important tool used to determine student growth and is used to consider promotion to the next grade level. It is important that your children come to school on these days. Tips to help a successful MAP testing include: 

  • Eating a healthy breakfast
  • Getting a good night’s sleep
  • Arriving at school on time
Your family may be eligible for a financial benefit to assist with food purchases for your student.

PEBT benefits will soon be available for families whose children have experienced COVID related absences and who qualify for free or reduced price benefits through the National School Lunch Program.  

 

Does my child qualify?

 

Both criteria must be met to qualify for PEBT benefits.

 

#1 A COVID related absence from August – December due to a positive test or exposure that has been verified by the campus.  COVID absences from January  – May will receive benefits in July.

  

#2 Eligible for free or reduced price meals through the National School Lunch Program.  To determine your child’s eligibility, submit an application through www.schoolcafe.com.  Paper applications may also be requested from the school office.  Students attending a CEP campus or who are directly certified automatically meet the eligibility requirement.      

  

The deadline to complete a meal eligibility application is April 6th.  

 

If you have any questions, please contact your school’s Child Nutrition Assistant.

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.

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.
