Parents, we ask that you please do not call or text your child during the school day as this creates distractions during instructional time. While students are allowed to have cell phones at school, they are not allowed to use the cell phones during instructional time. We ask that you please call the grade level office if you have a message that can not wait.


6th Grade- 832-375-8879

7th grade- 832-375-8805

8th grade- 832-375-8867

Tardy Reminders

Parents please note that our students are marked tardy beginning at 8:50 am. Many are arriving late in carpool and students then only have 1 or 2 minutes to make it to their class on time. Please be advised that our student tardy policy restarts each week but if they receive a 4th tardy, they are assigned a lunch detention and after than they may be assigned a day of ISS. We ask that you pull your vehicle all the way as to allow for more cars to unload at once which helps to prevent back up out on the road.

SMART TAG UPDATE!

We are aware that some students did not receive their SmartTag. Transportation is currently working to ensure every student receives a SmartTag. Any bus rider who did not receive their SmartTag, can provide the bus driver with their name to gain access. Bus drivers are aware of the delay in delivery, and will not hold students accountable. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ms.Green at 832-375-8805 or via email Jgreen5@kleinisd.net. As always, thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to distribute tags.

A MESSAGE FROM NURSE EPPS

Attention 6th Grade Parents!

Have you taken your student to get their Meningococcal and Tdap vaccine? These vaccinations are required prior to students attending 7th grade next year. If you have an updated shot record showing these vaccines have been given, please send a copy to Hofius Clinic. Students that have not received these vaccinations and/or do not have an updated vaccination record in the clinic will not be permitted to attend the 2022-2023 school year or receive their schedule until proof of immunity or an exemption has been received. Our goal is to ensure that all students have a smooth transition into each school year.


Records can be faxed to 832-375-8764 and/or emailed to aepps1@kleinisd.net. Please note that during summer break clinic staff will not be available. Any records can be sent beginning August 9, 2022.

HAPPY NATIONAL COUNSELOR'S WEEK TO OUR AMAZING COUNSELORS!
