Hawk Parents

We hope you find this Hofius Parent Playbook helpful and user friendly in navigating the start of school either via Klein On Campus or Klein Online. This playbook serves as a virtual version of our usual orientation that is held before school starts each year.


Your student's schedules are now available through the Student Access Center in Skyward. Families will also have access to Schoology. If you have any questions related to Schoology Family Access can be directed to schoology@kleinisd.net. If you notice something wrong with your student’s schedule in Skyward, please contact the grade level counselor.


Please be sure to read the information coming out from the District


I will be hosting a zoom session for parents on a first come first serve basis on Thursday, Sept. 3rd at 5:00 pm. (revised date) The session is called "Getting to know Goforth, Goals, and Grit" and the purpose is to help you to get to know me and the goals of Hofius Intermediate for the 2020-2021 school year. Only 300 participates are allowed on Zoom. I will open the zoom approximately 10 minutes early for the wait list. Hope to see you there!


Finally on a personal note, I know that this year will bring new challenges as we open our doors in a different way. I want to assure you that our Hawk Teachers have worked very hard to make this a great experience for our students and for you. Please reach out to your grade level counselors and or assistant principals when questions arise and they will do their best to answer and guide you along the way. Together we can!


Sincerely,


Christy Goforth

Principal
