Pajama Day

Pajama Day

In celebration of National Wear Your Pajamas To Work Day, scholars and staff may wear their pajamas to school on Friday, April 16th.

Each year on this day, National Wear Your Pajamas To Work Day allows us a reprieve after meeting a late-night deadline shuffling receipts and adding columns to file our taxes.  While some people call this day “the best holiday of the year,” it was created for fun.  Wearing pajamas to work creates a laid back and relaxed atmosphere especially for those accountants, tax preparers and last-minute filers.  Wearing pajamas offers a little relief from the nail-biting and stress that often comes with filing taxes.  The day helps to let go of the anxiety and offers a few more minutes of sleep for those who pushed the deadline to the limit.

The purpose of this announcement is to inform our HPS communities about changes to the Student Success Initiative (SSI) promotion/retention and retesting requirements for the 2020–2021 school year. In light of past and anticipated impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commissioner of Education has waived grade promotion requirements for students in fifth and eighth grade for the 2020–2021 school year. Notwithstanding anything the contrary in prior policy or procedure, Harmony Public Schools will comply with the Commissioner’s waiver of SSI requirements for this school year.
