Dear Parents and Guardians,
First off, I ask that you please review this letter with your child, as it contains very important information for both you and them.
As you well know, the recent events in Florida have heightened our focus to stay vigilant when it comes to the safety of our schools. In recent days, schools across the country have received threats both verbally and on social media. At Harmony Public Schools, the safety of our students is our utmost priority, and every potential threat, no matter how small, is taken seriously by our administrators and staff.
From what we have seen, threatening comments are being made by students in small groups or on social media. While some may mean it as a joke, others see it as a serious threat. But all of us should understand that this is not a laughing matter.
Harmony Public Schools has a zero-tolerance policy regarding threats and your child could face very serious legal consequences due to this behavior. Our stated campus safety protocols require administrators at each campus to immediately notify local law enforcement agencies every time a threat is made, whether real or perceived. Once law enforcement agencies are involved, there is very little you or we can do to protect them from the consequences of their actions.
In addition to legal consequences, your child faces disciplinary action up to and including expulsion. Please refer to pages 58 – 61 of your parent/student handbook for a complete list of disciplinary offenses that could result in suspension and/or expulsion from school.
I sincerely appreciate both you and your child’s efforts to keep everyone safe on our campus by promptly reporting threats to administrators. Remember, if you see (or hear) something, say something.
Finally, our hearts break for the victims at Stoneman-Douglas High School and the Parkland community. Counselors are available to speak with students who may have questions or who are struggling to comprehend this tragedy. Please reach out to your child’s school if counseling services are needed at any time.
Sincerely,
Fatih Ay
Interim CEO
Harmony Public Schools

Estimado padre e tutor,
Le pido que por favor lea esta carta con sus hijos ya que contiene información importante para usted y su(s) hijo(s).
Los recientes eventos en Florida han aumentado nuestro enfoque para mantenernos vigilantes cuando se trata de la seguridad de nuestras escuelas. En los últimos días, las escuelas de todo el país han recibido amenazas tanto verbalmente como en las redes sociales. En las escuelas públicas de Harmony, la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes es nuestra máxima prioridad, y todos los administradores y el personal toman en serio todas las amenazas potenciales, sin importar cuán pequeñas sean.
Según lo que hemos visto, los estudiantes hacen comentarios en grupos pequeños o en las redes sociales. Mientras que algunos pueden decir que es una broma, otros lo ven como una amenaza seria. Pero todos nosotros debemos entender que esto no es una cuestión de reír.
Las escuelas públicas de Harmony tienen una póliza de cero tolerancia con respecto a las amenazas y su hijo podría enfrentar consecuencias legales y muy serias debido a este comportamiento. Nuestros procedimientos de seguridad requieren que los administradores de cada escuela notifiquen inmediatamente a las agencias policiales cada vez que se hace una amenaza, ya sea real o percibida. Una vez que las agencias de la ley sean involucradas, hay muy poco que usted o nosotros podamos hacer para protegerlos de las consecuencias de sus acciones.
Además de las consecuencias legales, su hijo podría enfrentar una acción disciplinaria que puede incluir la expulsión de la escuela. Consulte las páginas 58-61 de su manual para padres e estudiantes para obtener una lista completa de las infracciones disciplinarias que podrían resultar en la suspensión y/o expulsión de la escuela.
Agradezco sinceramente los esfuerzos de usted y de su hijo para mantener a todos a salvo en nuestras escuelas, al informar rápidamente las amenazas a los administradores. Recuerde, si ve (o escucha) algo, por favor diga algo.
Nuestros corazones se rompen con las víctimas en Stoneman-Douglas High School y la comunidad de Parkland. Los consejeros están disponibles para hablar con los estudiantes que tengan preguntas o que están luchando para comprender esta tragedia. Por favor, comuníquese con la escuela de su hijo si necesita servicios de consejería en cualquier momento.
Sinceramente,
Fatih Ay
CEO Interino

Flyer for Latin American Student Leadership Summit

You are invited to participate Girl STEM Academy.

Girls STEM Academy is a gender-specific program designed to encourage middle-school girls to apply science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) concepts and skills through hands-on, inquiry-based learning. Participants engage in innovative and creative applications of science content. Students will problem-solve, build confidence in construction, experiment with engineering challenges and learn about robotics, technology and engineering through hands-on activities. The Girls STEM Academy curriculum is developed to spark interest in STEM careers and support state and national initiatives to improve math and science performance. The program meets the needs of diverse learners and ultimately addresses the under-representation of women in STEM fields.

If you are interested in STEM and you would like to participate please submit a 300 word essay letting us know why you would like to be part of this program.
