Harmony School of Technology After School Program Policies
Each student must be enrolled in the program by the parent or legal guardian approval. Most afterschool clubs and activities will have a $50.00 fee per semester per club. Some clubs may require an additional fee depending on the needs of that club. They need to pay their club fees to the front office either with a check or credit card.
Club Fee/Waiver Policy:
Harmony has adopted a policy for waiving a deposit or fee if a student or the student’s parents are unable to pay. A request for a waiver must be made in writing to the Campus Engagement Coordinator using the enclosed form and must include evidence of the inability to pay. Details for the waiver are available in the Campus Engagement and Support Coordinator’s office.
Rules and regulations outlined in the Harmony School of Technology Student Handbook will be applied to the after school program and all students enrolled in the program are expected to follow them. Students should stay at their assigned places during the after-school class period. Students cannot go to their lockers or loiter in the hallways and cafeteria.
Dismissal time for those who enrolled in clubs is 3:45 pm and 5:00 pm. Please be sure to pick your student up promptly at 5:00 pm after club dismissal. Please make the necessary arrangements to ensure students are off campus by school closing time, 5:00 pm.
Late Pick Up:
If you are going to be late, please try to call a friend or relative to pick up your child and also please call your child’s club sponsor. The first time a family is late in picking up their child, the club teacher will remind them of the pick-up expectations verbally. The teacher will document the late pick-up and any conversations or follow up in the child’s file. The second time a family is late in picking up their child, the club teacher will follow the same procedure listed above. The third time a family is late in picking up their child, the student will not be allowed to participate in the club anymore and no refunds will be given.
Space is limited, and enrollment will be on a first come, first serve basis.

Dear HST Parents,
Many of you who attended Title I Parent Meeting in October 5, 2017 may recall the Comprehensive Needs Assessment (CNA) Committees. I had briefly explained the purpose of these committees and invited parents to sign up. I wanted to thank the parents who volunteered for these committees. To reiterate, each year Harmony School of Technology administrators, teachers, parents and students meet together in a series of CNA committees to discuss and provide feedback about the areas of strengths and areas of improvement in our school. Right now, we are in the process of completing these committees. Please come, join in one of these committees, and let us hear your valuable opinions/suggestions.
What are the CNA Committees?
How Many Participants in Each Committee? What Are the Meeting Dates?
Typical CNA Committee has 4 -10 participants meets about 1 to 1.5 hours (early in the morning or in the afternoon). All CNA committee meetings are planned to take place in February. The dates may range from Monday, Feb 5 through Monday, Feb 12. If you know for sure that you are available that week, please volunteer!
How to be a Volunteer for a CNA Committee?
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Provide me with a name, current phone number, and email address. Lastly, please include the name of committee in which you would prefer to volunteer. You can volunteer for multiple committees.
How to Prepare for CNA Committee Meeting?
Relevant paperwork and data resource for the CNA meeting will be provided to you couple of days before the meeting. You can bring these documents to the meeting and refer them while contributing your feedback. Please return them at the end of the committee meetings.
How to Contact for More Information?
You can contact me via email, or in person. My email is email@example.com. My office is 304 in Main Building (A).
