LEVELING UP IN 2020

Howdy Hounds!


It was a great week to be a hound! we loved seeing everyone dressed up in their red, white, and blue in honor of Patriot's Day. Next week is Celebrate Freedom Week and Constitution Day...students will be learning about the Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights, Emancipation Proclamation, and the US Constitution on morning announcements.


As we continue to settle into the school year, I wanted to take a chance to review some of our campus procedures:



  • Please remember that Huggins follows a uniform policy, which can be reviewed at the bottom of this newsletter.
  • Due to a change in guidelines, birthday treats must be store bought and BOTH pre/individually packaged (think Hostess Cupcakes, Twinkies, etc.)
  • All students should bring their lunch from home or purchase lunch in the cafeteria. Please refrain from dropping lunch off to your child during the school day.
  • Students should arrive to school with a mask or gaiter, as well as their lanyard and Smart Tag.


We hope everyone has a fantastic 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!

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.
