Welcome Hawks!

We are so excited to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year and our beautiful new facility. Here at Hofius we believe that EVERY Hawk will enter the nest with a promise and soar with a purpose. It is our mission to display honesty, ambition, willingness, and kindness while soaring to new heights. We are about to embark on an exciting journey together as we become the Hawk family. Our staff cannot wait to get to know you and work together to help you achieve your goals for this school year.

Transportation

Bus:

Every single student at Hofius is eligible for bus service. We encourage you to utilize this as much as possible to alleviate traffic issues the first few weeks of school. Click HERE to learn more about bus routes. To review changes in bus transportation for the 2018-19 school year, click HERE.


Carpool:

If your student will be a car rider, we encourage carpooling as much as possible to help alleviate traffic. Click HERE to view a Hofius map showing the carpool flow. You will be entering on the road between Metzler and Hofius. There will be one lane ONLY for carpool drop off and pick up. Please follow the guidance of our Klein ISD Police the first few days. Please utilize the far right lane as you enter carpool so that teacher and staff may go around to park in the front lot.


Student Entrance:

Carpool riders will enter in the main entrance. 6th grade will report to the practice gym and all 7th and 8th will report to the cafeteria. Students eating breakfast may go straight to the cafeteria.


1st Day of School Schedule:

Students will report to their Homeroom class by alpha when the first bell rings. We will have teachers and staff available to help direct students where to report. We will also have posters available to direct the students where they will report to homeroom. They will receive copies of their schedule during homeroom.
