Summer Learning Opportunities

FBISD Summer Learning Letter to Parents

Dear Parent & Guardians,


Your child has worked very hard this year despite some unusual circumstances due to the pandemic. Thanks for your support in making this happen! In order to maintain this progress, it is important for them to continue reading and practicing math throughout the summer.


Research shows that children lose significant knowledge in reading and math over the summer months. Please review the attached document to review ideas and resources that will help ensure your child continues to grow academically this summer.

Summer Reading

This summer FBCL is challenging students to read and log reading time on the Bean Stack app. Prizes will be given to students as they work towards the challenge finish line. The Summer Reading Program begins May 31st and ends August 31st. Students can register at the following link on or after May 31st. www.fortbend.lib.tx.us The attached flyers with details about the Summer Reading Program were sent to FBISD families digitally in Peachjar.

EVENTS & UPDATES

Mentors Wanted

Sartartia Middle School is looking for a Few Good Mentors!

We would love any parent or community member to volunteer to be a mentor to one of our students next school year. If you are interested, please contact Ms. Friedel at katherine.friedel@fortbendisd.com.

FBISD 1Link Update

Fort Bend ISD wants to make you aware of a change coming to 1Link (powered by ClassLink), FBISD's single sign-on platform.

Recently, ClassLink announced the discontinuation of friendly link support due to updated security features implemented by various web browsers. Due to this action, FBISD will no longer be able to use https://1link.fortbendisd.com as the web address for 1Link access.

Effective May 15, all users must use https://launchpad.classlink.com/fbisd to access 1Link. The new link will continue to offer the same functionality as the deactivated link. Students and staff will still be able to utilize one username and password to access their digital resources and tools including Schoology, Microsoft Teams and Office 365 through 1Link.

All 1Link desktop shortcuts and bookmarks on FBISD district devices have already been redirected to https://launchpad.classlink.com/fbisd. Please be sure to update saved 1Link desktop shortcuts and bookmarks on all personal devices as FBISD cannot make the update on privately owned devices.

For more information about 1Link, please visit www.fortbendisd.com/1link.

Credit Recovery & Summer School

In summer 2021, Fort Bend ISD will be offering a variety of in-person instructional opportunities for our secondary school students (6th – 12th grades). The Credit Recovery Program allows students to regain credit for previously failed courses by successfully completing coursework. In response to the needs of our students and families, all remedial instruction will be tuition-free. The parents of students failing a course as of May 11th AFTER Progress Reports will receive a warning letter issued from the SIS team in Skyward Family Access Student Portfolio. School counselors will inform parents of the registration process including attendance requirements for students and confirmation of their need to attend. All students must return a registration form to their grade level counselor to be enrolled in the remedial summer course by the counselors.

Immunization Reminders

Attention all 6th Grade Parents! If you have not sent in an updated copy of your student's immunization record, please do so as soon as possible. We are looking for the TDAP and MCV immunizations, and many of our 6th graders may have received these required vaccines! The clinic staff does not work during the summer, and we would love to have your student compliant before the end of 6th grade. Please know, if we do not receive the updated records, your student will not be able to get their schedule or locker during summer jag camp. Please email the record to amy.schepanski@fortbendisd.com or fax to 281-327-6325. As always if you have any questions, feel free to call us at 281-634-6325.
