Parent Information for HISD
School Closure Curriculum & Instruction Plan
We miss your children in our classrooms at HISD, and we hope that everyone stays well as we continue living in this new normal. We look forward to seeing them walk through our classroom doors again soon!
We will be adding "district-wide" information and Updates for parents each week to this page, so please check back often!
We are here to serve.

It is important to help your child stay organized. We tried to make our campuses mimic each other in a systematic approach. You will see Reading/Language Arts on Monday, Math on Tuesday, etc. All homework will be due on Fridays (or earlier if finished). On the following Monday, we will check to see who hasn't completed the assigned work, and give those students a call to see if they need help or we can support them in any way! WE are Committed to helping our families in a systematic approach and in every way we can. We will be constantly evaluating our system and would encourage any feedback you have for us.
