Letter From The Principal

10/January/2021

Dear Families,

Good afternoon families,


Are you enjoying this snowy Sunday? Have you stepped outside with the family to build a snowman? Send us pictures. We'd love to see them. Send your pictures to yvette.soliz@hayscisd.net, don't forget to add your child or families name.


Hope your first week of 2021 has been filled with health, happiness, and a good start to your new beginnings resolutions.


As a reminder, the end of the 2nd nine-weeks is coming to end on February 1. If you plan on making changes to your child's learning environment, please make the changes to the Commitment Form by January 22, 2021. https://www.hayscisd.net/PSS (Click the translate link to read in another language). The district uses the Commitment Form to arrange transportation before the start date, and the campus uses the information to prepare for the entry of your child.


For parents of students attending school in-person, remember to take your child's temperature. Keep your child home if they are sick. Call Nurse Scott if you have questions or concerns about your child's illness. If you are not sure if you should send your child to school or keep them home, Nurse Scott can help.


Have a terrific week!


If you have any questions or concerns, please email or call at yvette.soliz@hayscisd.net, or (512) 268-8505.


Sincerely,

Yvette Soliz, Principal
