LEVELING UP IN 2020

Howdy Hounds!


This week, we celebrated Freedom Week and Constitution Day. Our third, fourth, and fifth grade students received an individual copy of of the US Constitution courtesy of the Texas Municipal Courts.


Tomorrow morning at 9:00am, volunteers will be outside to help with the Huggins Garden. If you are interested in helping, please see the sign-up below.


Be sure to scroll below to meet our new front office receptionist, learn about the updates to the students and staff safety protocols for screening and isolation, get information regarding the Parent Portal for Smart tags, and learn about the LCISD Bond 2020.


Next Thursday is our first House Day of the 20-21 School Year. Returning students and staff should come decked out in their designated house color. If your student is new to Huggins, they will receive their house assignment on Thursday. This will be done virtually with your child's teacher if your child participates in virtual instruction. New staff members will also be receiving their house colors, and Mr. Little's house color will be revealed on morning announcements!


Don't forget that there is no school Friday, September 25th.


Have a great weekend!


Sincerely,


Bethany Cunningham

Important information for arrival and dismissal! (repeat)

Please note that our doors open at 7:00am. To help the flow of our car rider line, please ensure that your child is ready to exit the car by having their mask on when you pull up. A reminder that our school day ends at 2:55pm this year. We are now dismissing at our standard time. We appreciate your patience as we continue to maximize the effectiveness of our car rider line. With the changes in protocols due to Covid-19, it is taking some additional time to load cars, as students are being dismissed from their individual classrooms.

Specials for Virtual Students (repeat)

A special reminder from Coach Haines, Mrs. LeClair, and Ms. Barba to be sure to log into your specials courses and complete your assignment each week! This is only for virtual students...on-campus students complete their specials assignments on campus.

Character Counts!

Lamar CISD uses Character Counts as a piece of our social-emotional curriculum. Character Counts focuses on learning 6 core values to prepare every student to succeed in school; live happy, worthy and fulfilling personal lives; and become engaged, responsible and productive citizens.

TRUSTWORTHINESS

During the month of September, we will go into each classroom (virtual and on-campus) to start our Character Counts lessons. September is all about learning to be TRUSTWORTHY. What does it mean to be TRUSTWORTHY?

Think “true blue“ • Be honest • Don’t deceive, cheat or steal • Be reliable — do what you say you’ll do • Have the courage to do the right thing • Build a good reputation • Be loyal — stand by your family, friends, and country

Remember, your Character Counts!

Mrs. Evans & Mrs. Reddy

Computer Lab (repeat)

We are excited to announce the addition of computer lab into our specials rotation this year. Ms. Vassiliadis (Ms. V) will be working with the students. If possible, please send your child with a pair of headphones that they can use during computer lab. These can be kept in their backpack and taken to the lab on computer rotation days. We ask that you do not send expensive ear buds, but rather traditional head phones.

Face Coverings (Repeat)

Protective measures, including the use of face coverings, will be determined by the level of disease activity of COVID-19. The District will rely on data from the Department of State Health Services (DSHS), Fort Bend County Health & Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to determine the disease activity level and the appropriate protective measures.



Students are required to bring two dress code approved masks/face coverings daily. One will be worn, and one additional mask/face covering will be brought in a sealed/ziploc bag. Labeling of the masks with a student name is suggested.


Mask questions we have received:


Can my child wear a face shield? Full-face shields may be used in place of a mask to protect eyes, nose, and mouth whenever a mask is not feasible or whenever the education context may benefit from the ability to see an individual’s full face.


Can my child wear a neck gaiter/buff? Yes, these are also approved.


Does the mask have to be a Huggins uniform color? No. Masks may be any color or design. However, no inappropriate language or images will be allowed.


***Please note that BSN Sports has graciously donated Huggins Hounds lanyards that will be given to students on the first day of school. Students will be able to use these lanyard to attach their masks so that they do not get lost.
