Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians - 

 

Welcome to the new school year! We are excited to see our returning students and meet our new incoming students and families. Harvest Park has a long-standing record of educational excellence and we look forward to partnering with you to continue this tradition. Here is some important information about the start of the 2019-20 school year for your student(s). Please read this entire email as there are several new items.

 

CONTINUING THIS YEAR:

COMPUTERS  - We will be continuing our 1:1 device program.  If your student is an incoming 6th-grade student or new to our district, we will issue a computer for their use while they are attending Harvest Park. Your student will receive his/her device during the first week of school.  Please print and bring the attached PUSD Device Agreement to  Walk-Through Registration.  If your student is a current 7th or 8th-grade student at Harvest Park, they will continue to use the device they were issued during the 2018-19 school year. You will also need to print and bring the attached PUSD Device Agreement to  Walk-Through Registration.
