We are switching our current Harmony Parent/Student portal to the New Harmony 3 Family Access and all parents should have received an email with the link to log in, as well as instructions for the setup. Everyone needs to register with the new credentials, as we will eventually be turning off the current version of the program.
One of the advantages of the new Harmony 3 Family Access is that it allows parents and students to have separate accounts with their own user names and passwords to access information as well as set notifications. Because the accounts are separate, students will not be able to make changes to any of the settings made by parents.
In the new program you will be able add all your students into one login and to see the following:
The new site link is:
The link is also posted on the corporation as well as each building website.
We hope you enjoy the features of the new site.

Some of you who bring your children to school no doubt noticed that our flags are at half-mast today. This is in accordance with an order from Governor Mike Pence in response to events over the weekend. The following is a portion of the press release issued by the Governor’s Office yesterday (11-16-14):
“”Abdul-Rahman Kassig was one of us and he was the best of us. He was a lifelong Hoosier who was admired by all as a loving son, a dedicated student, an Army Ranger, and a compassionate humanitarian who risked his life to render medical aid to refugees in Syria and Lebanon. Karen and I offer our deepest condolences and prayers for this courageous young man, his loving family and friends during this time of heartbreak and loss. Indiana will never forget the service, compassion and sacrifice of Abdul-Rahman (Peter) Kassig.’”
Governor Pence also declared an official period of mourning to begin on sunrise Monday and ordered that flags be lowered at state buildings all across Indiana to mark this tragic murder.
