HSI- Fort Worth Counseling Services
With the new year already in place and picking up momentum, students will face stressors and educational obstacles that may challenge them emotionally, behaviorally, and socially, thus affecting them academically. To help alleviate such stressors, Harmony School of Innovation- Fort Worth (HSI-FW), will provide counseling support services. The goal is for the students to learn coping strategies and techniques that will help them be emotionally, behaviorally, socially, and academically successful.
The counseling services will be provided by Licensed Professional Counselor- Intern, Salina Keller, and will include: individual counseling, group counseling, and psycho-educational classes. The services will be provided on-campus, and will be available to those students who are in need of additional guidance and support. The counselor, Mrs. Keller, will determine the appropriate intervention and length of services, based on the student’s needs. If your student met with the counselor at any point last school year, then the counselor will also be sending a copy of the consent form home with your child upon checking in with your student to remind him/her of continuing available support within the previously established counseling relationship.
If you feel that your child’s academic success is being challenged due to emotional and social stressors, and would like to refer him/her for services, you may do so by filling out the Referral Form and Parent Consent Form (click here for the forms). Services are confidential, free of charge, and may not be provided if the aforementioned forms are not filled out and signed by the student’s Parent/Legal Guardian. You may obtain more information about when and how to refer your child for services on the Referral Form, or you may contact HSI-FW and speak to Mr. Derby or Mr. Sandoval.

Dear Parents and Guardians,
Harmony strives each day to provide a safe, caring and collaborative atmosphere for our students. Nutritious meals are available daily for a price of $1.70 for breakfast, $3.00 for lunch, and $0.50 for a la carte milk.
Upon enrollment in Harmony Public Schools, each student is provided a lunch account onto which money may be deposited for breakfast, lunch, or a la carte milk. Money may be deposited by money order in the school office. You may also deposit money online by setting up an account at www.schoolcafe.com. In addition to making payments, you may also arrange for low balance alerts and schedule automatic payments. School Café is available online and as an app for both iPhone and Android devices.
If you would like to apply for free or reduced price meals, the lunch application is available online at www.schoolcafe.com. A paper copy of the application is also available at the school office. A reduced price breakfast is $0.30, and a reduced price lunch is $0.40. Once an application is submitted, the school will mail a letter to the home address within 10 school days with the student’s eligibility.
Should a student’s meal account balance fall below $0, he/she will be allowed to charge up to –$10.00. Once the negative meal account balance limit is reached, the student will receive an alternate meal. Alternate meals consist of cereal, fruit, and milk for breakfast; and for lunch, a sandwich, vegetable, and milk.
Harmony goes to great lengths to communicate with parents about the status of their student’s lunch balance. Parents will be notified when a student’s balance approaches $0. The school will make several additional attempts to contact the parents regarding negative balances prior to the student receiving an alternate meal. Parents may view meal account balances at any time by logging in to their School Café account. Please note that while households later approved for free meals will begin receiving free meals immediately, they are still responsible for paying negative balances accrued on the meal account.
We appreciate your continued support as we work to ensure a safe and productive learning environment for all of our students.
