COUNSELOR'S CORNER

Hello, my name is Shannon Kinniebrew, and I'm the school counselor at SWE. I'm excited to share that this year I'm meeting with each student on campus through individual meetings! This is a special time for students to tell me about themselves, their strengths, and their goals for the future. In our guidance lessons this year we'll continue growing in our Great 8 Social & Emotional Learning Skills, especially in the areas of optimistic thinking, self management, goal directed behavior, and relationship skills. If you believe your student could benefit from additional counseling services please visit my website at https://www.humbleisd.net/Page/9936 or email me directly at shannon.kinniebrew@humbleisd.net. I hope you have a wonderful week. It's going to be a great year here at SWE!

Dismissal Reminders

Even though we plan dismissal procedures with a similar skeleton framework each year, several factors impact the implementation and final plan. This year we have substantially more students on campus and less staff to support (with no virtual classes on campus). We so appreciated your grace & patience as we adjusted to meet the needs of our campus this year. Safety is our first priority.


Some reminders moving forward to help ensure the safety of all our students and staff.


Please ensure that you completed a dismissal form for every child at SWE. Teachers did make calls to those families that were missing forms yesterday, so we knew first day dismissal plans. We still need everyone to complete this form for each child as soon as possible!


Dismissal Times:

3:10 - 4th & 5th Bikers released

3:12 - K - 3 Bikers released

3:15 - 3 - 5 Walkers released

3:17 - K - 2 Walkers released

3:19 - Daycare released

3:20 - Car Riders begin to be dismissed - Students are released from their dismissal classrooms when their car rider number is inputted into our system as parents arrive in the car rider line.


Walkers: Please ensure that your child knows which direction to walk. IF you are meeting your child as a walker, please practice safety. Staff can not let students run across roads to meet you in any spot other than the crosswalk.


Daycare: Please communicate with your daycare provider, if your student has a change of plans and will not be attending.



Car Riders: If your child is assigned as a car rider, it is necessary for you to REMAIN IN YOUR CAR in the car rider line. The Car Rider line will begin to move more quickly as students & parents learn routines. Car rider students will not be called out of their dismissal area for parents who walk up. If you would like to meet your child, students can be reassigned as a walker.


Please communicate ANY dismissal changes to your child's homeroom teacher before midday, if possible. If a change needs to occur later, please contact the main office at 281-641-3000.

Please Click Here To Complete The SWE Dismissal Form

Please complete one form for each child.Thanks!
