More Reasons as to why you chose the best district for your children!
Does your child still need a Chromebook?
- If you already have a SchoolCash account, the form will appear as an item in your cart. They will click the link to sign the form and it will process through.
- If you do not have a SchoolCash account, you will need to create an account, add your student(s), and then click to sign the agreement form.
Below are directions for creating a SchoolCash account, as well as a parent letter answering some questions.
Is this a requirement before a student receives a Chromebook?
Yes. This form must be signed before we will issue out a device.
When can parents start to log in and sign?
The item is attached to all students right now.
What about new enrollees? How do they sign?
SchoolCash syncs up with our systems each night. So if a parent completes enrollment (and the registrar completes the process) before say 5 pm today, they would be able to create their SchoolCash account tomorrow and sign the form.
How will parents know they need to complete this step?
We are asking that you share this information with your parents so they will know there is an electronic form to sign this year.

Your child is welcome to look at the items during their breakfast or lunch. If you would like to look for yourself, please call the front desk to schedule to come to the campus between 8:30-10:00 am. We will be glad to have a staff member help you search for your child's items.
At the end of each month, items will be donated.
**Helpful Tip: Please label your child's belongings. If we find it, we will make sure it gets delivered to the student.
Please check often, as the calendar is subject to change.

Hancock Safety Protocols
- Students, staff, and visitors must screen daily (prior to entering a school bus or school) for symptoms of COVID-19. If symptoms are experienced, individuals must not report to school or work until evaluated by a licensed healthcare provider.
Quarantine and Isolation:
- Students who show symptoms of COVID-19 at school will be evaluated by the nurse and will be excluded in accordance with CFISD communicable disease exclusion criteria.
- Students or staff members who test positive for COVID-19 must meet established criteria as stated in the “Isolation and Readmission Criteria Protocol” before returning to school or work.
Per Gov. Greg Abbott’s Executive Order, face masks cannot be mandated in schools; however, the CDC recommends universal masking of all individuals in K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status.
- Face masks are optional for all CFISD students and staff.
- Face masks must meet the “Student Code of Conduct” and dress code requirements.
- Bus drivers will provide disposable masks to students upon request.
- Parents of students in grades Pre-K through five may request that their child be placed with other masked students in classrooms and other common areas, such as large group areas, cafeterias, playgrounds, and buses, to the extent feasible. Requests should be made to campus administration.
- To promote good hand hygiene, all campuses have soap dispensers in all restrooms and hand sanitizer dispensers in all classrooms, building and cafeteria entrances, and buses.
- Students, staff, and parents will frequently be reminded of good hygiene practices, including frequent and thorough handwashing, using hand sanitizer, and covering coughs and sneezes. See “Hand Hygiene Protocol”.
- High touch surfaces, buses, classrooms, restrooms, gyms, locker rooms, and other areas will be disinfected with a hospital-grade/EPA-registered disinfectant nightly and throughout the day as needed.
- The cafeteria will be disinfected with a hospital-grade/EPA-registered disinfectant after each lunch period. Students will throw their trash away.
- To reduce contaminants in the air in all district facilities, CFISD has increased the introduction of outside air, improved air filtration, increased airflow, and ensured ventilation systems are cleaned and operating properly.
- The scheduled start time was moved to 3 hours before school begins to bring more treated outdoor air into all facilities.
- The HVAC department regularly inspects all outdoor air dampers to make sure they are open and cleaned and sanitizes all air handler coil surfaces and drain pans on a regular schedule.
- The temperature setpoint at all facilities has been lowered and MERV 13 filters have been installed in units capable of accommodating increased filtration as recommended by the CDC.
- District facilities have between six and eight air changes every hour ensuring clean air in district facilities.
