Lockdown Drill

We will have a lockdown drill next week. A callout will be sent the day before and after the lockdown drill is performed to ensure communication to our community.

Attendance Recovery and Tutoring

If your child is over in attendance, here is how you can avoid your child losing credit this semester:

Have your child attend Before/After school tutoring with Teachers

Have your child attend Online Homework Support Center (Student Portal)

Mon. - Thurs.: 6-10 PM

Saturday: 10 AM - 2PM

Have your child attend THIS Saturday’s 12/4 Tutoring from 8AM - 12NOON in our Marshall Library

Grades + Attendance = Credits

Your child needs Attendance Recovery hours if they have more than 8 absences

45 minutes of AR = Recovery of one class period

Students: How many hours do you owe? Check your NISD email and HAC (Report Card) for updates about your attendance.
