We love our Herff Hawks!



A Note from Mrs. Tate

Dear Herff Elementary parents,

Thank you so much for your continued support as we now enter our fourth week of distance learning. As a reminder, Friday, April 10th is a district holiday, so this upcoming week of distance learning is scheduled Monday through Thursday.

Your child’s assignment details will be posted to their Google Classrooms or SeeSaw by the end of the day Friday, April 3rd. For those students with limited/no digital access, instructional packets are available. All content course assignments have been designed to be completed by Thursday, April 9

For additional resources please visit our distance learning website at bit.ly/BISDathome. And should you need additional assistance with the resources, or you have any questions, please feel free to email your child’s teacher or myself, at tanya.tate@boerneisd.net.

Thank you for all that you do.
