Getting Through The Schools Being Closed
HEB ISD's Crisis Prevention and Intervention team wants you to know that we are here for you, in spite of the school closures. We understand that these are trying times and can further cause distress for kids who already have issues with anxiety, depression, and general worry over what is happening in our country at this time. We also understand that parents are under stress with kids being home, worrying about your job and how to financially navigate these times.
Please see below for more resources.

A Message From H-E-B!
This school year, we would like to share important or urgent news with parents via text message. If you would like to receive this information via text message, you must opt-in. This will give HEB ISD permission to send you text messages.
To opt-in, send a text message to “67587” with “Y” or “yes”.
(If you have already done this, you do not have to do it again.)
If you receive an error message, your number might not be labeled as a mobile phone in your student's records. In this case, you will need to contact your student’s school and ask to add your mobile phone number to your student’s records. After the school has updated your record, wait until the next day and then try again to opt-in.

Daily Pick-Up and Drop Off
We are reminding all drivers that only Day Care buses and Bedford Heights’ faculty and staff enter and/or park in the parking area located on Bob Nash Drive. Thank you for making the necessary arrangements to help with the safe arrival and dismissal for all of our children.
It is important for student and parent safety that any crossing of a street is done at a crosswalk. There are eight major crosswalks near or around Bedford Heights and crossing at these locations will help pedestrians and motorized vehicles navigate around the campus safely.
Please note that Bob Nash Drive should not be crossed into the East (Faculty) Parking Lot. This is a dangerous area before and after school with many blind spots that motorists cannot see. Please cross at the corner of Bob Nash Drive and Cummings. Our crossing guard will get you to school in the safest way.
Sibling Meeting Place
A Meeting place should be established for family members after school. All students will be brought into the foyer in front of the office at 3:15 each day.
Please Join Our PTA
We hope you are able to join our Bedford Heights’ PTA this year. It is a small fee of $7!
The PTA provides birthday recognition to our students and pays for all student field trips. The organization also sponsors our Dad’s Club and creates wonderful experiences during holidays for your children!
