Please Welcome Lauren Merriman - our new AP!

A big #wchowlout to Lauren Merriman, our newest Assistant Principal. Lauren is a product of KISD and she attended Katy Elementary, Katy Junior High, and graduated from Katy HS. She has over 8 years of experience in education and has served in a variety of leadership positions at several KISD campuses including math teacher and volleyball coach at Seven Lakes Junior High School. In addition, she served as a counselor at SLJH and had an opportunity to open Stockdick Junior High as the lead counselor. Lauren has a strong math background and learns quickly in unpredictable environments. She has already begun working to prepare us for a successful 2020-2021 school year in this ever-changing environment we are currently in. Congrats Lauren and GO TIMBERWOLVES!

With that being said, we will have a different structure with our APs this school year.

Katy Virtual Academy

Parents may enroll their child into KVA for the fall 2020 semester by logging into PowerSchool. The KVA enrollment option is available beginning on Monday, July 20 through Friday, August 7th, 2020. (Note that the deadline to enroll has been extended from the original deadline of August 5th.)

Students who elect to begin the school year enrolled in KVA may elect to return to in-person instruction at the end of a six-weeks (secondary) and nine-week (elementary) grading period. KVA enrolled students are not allowed to return to in-person instruction prior to the close of a grading period.

It is recommended that KVA enrolled students have a dedicated technology device with audio and camera capabilities. Broadband internet access is required as well. Please indicate on the KVA commitment form via PowerSchool if your child is in need of a device and/or internet access.

Note: Parents who plan for their children to return to campus for in-person instruction do not have to submit a commitment form.

Annual Enrollment Update Happening Now

During this week, parents and guardians who have an email address on file with the District will have received a unique SnapCode for each of their enrolled students. Please be sure to check the spam folder, as the district sends the codes out in large batches and many e-mail programs tag the message a spam. They will be sending batches daily, so it may take until Friday to receive yours. Parents and guardians who have not provided an email address will receive their Snapcode by US postal mail.

If you do not receive a SnapCode by the designated date, or you are having issues with PowerSchool Enrollment, please contact your child’s campus or submit a Help Desk ticket and a Technology staff member will contact you within 24 business hours.

When completing the Annual Student Update via Power School, parents will have the option to request a technology device and/or internet support for their children due to in-person instruction being delayed until Tuesday, September 8. Parents who selected the Katy Virtual Academy (KVA) instructional option may request a technology device and/or internet support if the request was not made when the KVA commitment form was submitted.

The deadline to complete the Annual Student Update is August 18.

If you have any questions about your student's enrollment at WoodCreek Junior High, please contact our registrar at LeahCCaffey@katyisd.org.
