KISD School Safety

Dear Parents:


The Klein Independent School District has a deep concern for the safety and security of its students and employees. To address these concerns, video cameras have been installed, random, human-canine teams make regular visits to the campus, and our school campus has a full time police officer.


As described in the student handbook, an additional procedure has been implemented to further secure the high school and intermediate campuses. All high schools and intermediate schools have been provided with handheld metal detectors, which will be used solely on a random basis. Students in randomly selected classrooms and/or buses will be scanned using the handheld metal detectors. Should there be an alert, students will be asked to cooperate in determining the cause of the alert. If requested, this may be done in an area other than the classroom. Walk through metal detectors may be used on some campuses in a similar manner.


The purpose of implementing these security measures is to prevent any student from bringing guns or any illegal weapons into the school building. Zero tolerance of guns and illegal weapons means that the KISD will not accept excuses. Therefore, those who possess these objects will be arrested. Your cooperation and support are greatly appreciated.


Sincerely,

Counselor's Corner

Hofius Theatre

We want to welcome all grades to participate in the Hofius Showstoppers, Musical Theatre Club. Our information meeting is August 27th at 8:00 AM. We will be holding auditions for Thoroughly Modern Millie, Jr. on September 9th and 10th. Students interested in auditioning should see Mrs. Controne or Mrs. Lushbaugh for the audition packet prior to the Auditions. We are very excited to bring our first Musical Theatre Performance to Hofius on November 21, 2019!!

Math Lab Tutorials

Math Lab will be available to any student who needs some extra support in math. Students can get help with a topic, study for a test, work on homework with support, etc. Students will need to come with "something" to work on and realize that it is possible that there might be several different grade levels in attendance so it is not 1:1 support necessarily. Math Lab will meet after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting on September 17th in room 2114. The Lab will end at 5:00. Reminder: Individual teachers will ALSO be offering tutorials throughout the week!
