Here’s What You Need to Know About Bad Weather Delays and Closures

When bad weather is in the forecast, we always try to let our families know as quickly as possible about any delays, cancellations or closures.


A decision to change normal school and district operations isn’t taken lightly, so our district leadership is always working to evaluate all the latest information, including weather forecasts, road conditions, recommendations from area emergency management officials, and of course, check-ins with other superintendents and school districts.


When a decision is made, we use all of our available communications channels to get this information out to our families, including call-outs, emails, text messages, web pop-ups and social media. Make sure you're following the district here: @SpringISD on Twitter, Spring ISD on Facebook, and @Spring.ISD on Instagram. Also, don’t forget to download the Spring ISD mobile app to receive push notifications: Simply go to either the Apple App Store or Google Play on Android phones and search for ‘Spring ISD.’


Finally, it’s a great time to make sure your contact information is updated in the Home Access Center. Or if you’re an employee, log into the Employee Access Center. If you’ve changed emails or phone numbers recently, take a few moments to log in and make sure we have your newest contact information.


SPANISH


Esto es lo que necesita saber sobre los retrasos y cierres debido al clima peligroso



Cuando se pronostica mal clima, siempre tratamos de informar a nuestras familias lo antes posible sobre retrasos, cancelaciones o cierres.


La decisión de cambiar las operaciones normales de la escuela y el distrito no se toma a la ligera, por lo que nuestro liderazgo del distrito siempre está trabajando para evaluar la información más reciente, incluidos los pronósticos meteorológicos, las condiciones de las carreteras, las recomendaciones de los funcionarios de gestión de emergencias del área y, por supuesto, conversaciones con otros superintendentes y distritos escolares.


Cuando se toma una decisión, usamos todos nuestros canales de comunicación disponibles para hacer llegar esta información a nuestras familias, incluyendo llamadas, correos electrónicos, mensajes de texto, ventanas emergentes en la web y redes sociales. Asegúrese de seguir al distrito aquí: @SpringISDLatino en Twitter y @SpringISDLatino en Facebook. Además, no olvide descargar la aplicación móvil Spring ISD para recibir notificaciones automáticas: simplemente vaya a Apple App Store o Google Play y busque "Spring ISD".


Por último, es un buen momento para asegurarse de que su información de contacto esté actualizada en el Centro de acceso desde el hogar (HAC). Si ha cambiado de correo electrónico o número de teléfono recientemente, inicie sesión en HAC y asegúrese de que tengamos los últimos detalles. O si es un empleado, inicie sesión en el Centro de acceso para empleados. Si ha cambiado de correo electrónico o número de teléfono recientemente, tómese unos minutos para iniciar sesión y asegúrese de que tengamos su información de contacto más reciente.

Compulsory Attendance Law

Click here to read more about the Compulsory Attendance Law. All students are required to be in attendance at least 90% of the school year! Our attendance rate is too low! We need our scholars in school every day!

Parents,


Don't forget about the CLASS ATTENDANCE INCENTIVE! TWO MORE DAYS TO GO!

Monday, August 30 and Tuesday, August 31, will your child's class be the class that will enjoy a popsicle party and a BURCHETT SURPRISE?


Starting September 3rd, we will be doing a weekly incentive for all classes with 100% attendance and ZERO tardiness to class! Every five days, we will pull attendance records, tally, and then send home a notice to all classes who have achieved their attendance goal! If your child receives an attendance reward in their Thursday folder, then they will get to enjoy a free cookie. Teachers will also get to enjoy a FREE JEAN DAY as well!


Parents, we need your help! ATTENDANCE MATTERS! Our students need to come to school every day! The state is still requiring all students to be in attendance at least 90% of the school year and maintain a high level of academic achievement. We understand that kids get sick, but be mindful that in order to help ensure your child's academic success, we must have them present and engaged in the learning each day! Absenteeism leads to failing grades and/even to social/emotional instability in students' mental health. Please join us in the efforts to make our BURCHETT BOBCATS SHINE this year!

SCHOOL START TIME - 8:05AM

STUDENTS ARRIVING AFTER 8:05AM MUST HAVE A TARDY SLIP SIGNED BY THE PARENT!
