WPE Community Newsletter - Week of September 7

Message from the Principal

Whispering Pines Families,


As we finish up the first 4 weeks of school please make sure you check HAC for your 3-5th graders progress report. The district no longer sends home paper copies of report cards or progress reports.

If you do not know what your log in is then contact us through email Janette.Lopez@humbleisd.net or call us up and we will get your information to you.


There is A LOT of information that flows through HAC such as their unique ID for STAAR reports through the state, grades, enrollment, their student ID for lunches etc. and in middle and high school their schedule as well as their grades and their class ranking.
