FBISD Transportation and Travis High School
FBISD’s Special Education Department will host a Transition Resource Fair on April 9 at the Reese Center. This event will provide information for families with middle and high school students with special needs, but is open to everyone.
We love our teachers and staff!! Travis PTO will be hosting a Spring luncheon in April and Sonic drinks for Teacher/Staff Appreciation week in May. Any amount donation is great! Thank you for helping us treat our wonderful teachers and staff!
Friendly reminder that staff and students will all have access to eBooks and audiobooks through Sora all summer! Access Sora through 1Link. Books in the list "Always Available" have multiuser access, meaning multiple students can check them out at once (about 150 books). Everything else can be checked out by one student at a time for two-week periods. Teachers have access also, so they can pop in there anytime to see which books are in there.
Expired student passwords
Beginning on Tuesday, November 16th, automatic emails will be sent by the District to secondary students (Grades 6th through 12th) whose passwords have expired or are going to expire within 21 days. Notifications will be sent from DoNotReply.MyFortBendISD@fortbendisd.com and will direct students to go to Skyward for Password Job Aids. Students will receive these emails daily until they have updated their passwords.
Note: For security reasons, the notifications will not include attachments or links.
Please encourage your student to download the “Band” app on their cell phone and join their grade-level reminder group below. Parents are also encouraged to join Band so they can stay informed on all of events happening at Travis.
We will use this tool to communicate general reminders such as spirit days, activity schedule days, picture days, etc.
FBISD REMOTE CONFRENCING INFORMATION
“Parents: If your student has been quarantined at home and does not have access to a working computer, we have a limited number of laptops that can be checked out to quarantined students for two weeks at a time. In order to check one out, first please fill out a laptop agreement form in Skyward at THIS LINK. Then, you will need to complete a Travis Student Laptop Request at THIS LINK. Once you have completed both, you will be contacted by the THS Library with instructions on how to retrieve your laptop.
