Eagle Update: February 12, 2021

Barton Hills Elementary

Hello BHE Families:

I hope all of you stay warm and safe today and through the weekend. Monday is a Professional Development Day and a Student Holiday. As the weather forecast predicts continued cold and freezing rain please stay tuned to the news and email early next week to stay abreast of any changes in school settings. Any decisions about delays and changes are made at the district level and will be communicated to parents through robo calls and emails.

Thanks to all for joining us this afternoon for our first Zoom DANCE Party! What a great way to end our Friday. Mr. Trevino and Coach "E" get extra shoutouts for being our DJ and Contest Directors! I know there were a few glitches trying to get everyone in so thank you for your patience.

Thank you as always for your support of our school community.

Kati Achtermann

Browser History Reminders

Please note and remind your children their browser history can’t be cleared. Remind students that their browser history on an Austin ISD device cannot be cleared. Anyone who opens history on their device will be able to see students’ search history, along with dates and times.

Dogs on Campus

We respectfully request that dogs not accompany you or your child to school for arrival or dismissal. While your dog may be the best for your family, not everyone is comfortable around them and and not all dogs do well in the arrival/dismissal setting. Thank you so much!

AISD’s technology team has launched a webpage that allows school communities to check the status of district systems such as the cloud and portal, as well as Accelify, School Messenger, and Zoom, at www.austinisd.org/technology/status.
