Principal's Message













August 2020


Dear Harmony Families.


On Friday, July 17, Governor Newsom released guidance for schools to reopen for the 2020-21 school year. Due to the guidance criteria, all schools (public, private, and charter) within Riverside County schools will not be permitted to return to school in a traditional manner. As such, HUSD will open the school year in a fully online learning model beginning August 17, 2020.


There is no doubt that this is a difficult time for all of our families.  Please know that our entire Harmony Elementary team of dedicated teachers and support staff would prefer to have your children on campus everyday in person to teach and to continue with our rich Harmony school culture.  For the health and safety for all, this is not possible at this time.  While we enter this unprecedented online platform for learning, our staff is committed to serving all our students substantially equivalent to the quality and rigor of classroom-based instruction.  Our teachers and support staff have been trained in the latest technology to ensure that they are proficient in translating on ground instruction to an online learning format.


 Partnership is the key.  We need your continued support with our teachers and work collectively to ensure our students’ success.  Your patience for our teachers is greatly appreciated as they have had a steep and speedy learning curve.  We are all in this together!  


I am truly honored to be the Principal of Harmony Elementary School.  I look forward to the day when we will all be reunited in person learning and continue on Harmony’s historical path of success in a happy culture, positive and safe learning environment.  For now, we are committed to excellence and will continue to provide the best learning experiences possible to allow your children to achieve at high levels socially, emotionally, and academically.  Our office is open from 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., daily.   I welcome your telephone calls, or emails with any ideas or concerns you may have in support of your child and to promote the ongoing effectiveness of our outstanding school.


Most sincerely,


Teresa McFarland
