Moving forward, you will need to use the Home Access Center (HAC) to peruse your scholar's grades, missing and upcoming assignments. If you need assistance accessing HAC, please click on one of these links to learn more:

Perfect Attendance Incentives

We are strongly encouraging our scholars to attend school daily. We are planning our every 3 week attendance incentives. If you want your child to participate, please ensure he/she attends school daily. Every three weeks, we will provide an opportunity for your child to participate. If they don't attend all 15 days for the first 3 Week grading cycle, they will have a chance the next three weeks. In addition, the incentives are bigger for those scholars with perfect attendance for the entire 9 Weeks, 1st Semester and All Year.


If you child tests positive for COVID-19, the protocol to follow is on the district's website. It is also attached below in a picture image and yo ou may click on this link: https://www.springisd.org/Page/7070
