It is already time to start thinking about back to school events. SMS will be hosting its schedule pickup on Wednesday, July 19th from 2:00pm until 4:00pm and 5:00pm until 7:00pm. You and your middle school student are encouraged to attend one of the time slots to receive your student's schedule and other information regarding the upcoming year.
Additionally, all incoming seventh grade and new eighth grade families are welcome to partake in our informational session from 4:00pm until 5:00pm. Making the transition into middle school is the first and most significant step to insuring a successful middle school experience. This change impacts not only students, but also their families. It is our hope to provide a framework that includes strategies as well as policies and procedures tailored to meet the needs of your student. As middle school is not a "one size fits all" approach, we hope to provide a realistic expectation of your year ahead.
We trust you are enjoying your summer and look forward to seeing you on July 19th.
Welcome to HUSD – School Offices Open
All school offices – preschool, elementary, middle and high school – open for regular business hours beginning Monday, July 10. At that time, all school registrations, enrollments and withdrawals can be completed at the campus site. Information on the enrollment process can be found at www.husd.org/enrollment. Classes begin July 24. We look forward to seeing you.
E-mail Communication – Stay in Touch with Your School
Classes begin July 24. Please visit www.husd.org/calendar to view the 2017-2018 calendar. Now is a good time to sign up or update Constant Contact e-mail subscriptions.
These e-mails include weekly information from schools, emergency communication and event updates. Families can also select to receive district and/or Community Education e-mails. To stop receiving e-mail from a particular school, click “unsubscribe” at the bottom of the latest e-mail received. New sign ups can be completed at www.husd.org/emailcom.
Please note: Families can also change/update their e-mail address for Constant Contact (formerly known as E-alert) using the same steps. However, this does not update the e-mail address on file at the school. That must be done at the school office.
All HUSD families should sign up for a ParentVue account. This allows parents to view student grades and absences, as well as see – when they are posted – class schedules and teacher information. The district also uses ParentVue during class selection times at the middle schools and high schools.
Sign up requires an IN PERSON visit to the school office. If you already have a ParentVue account, and your child is moving from one HUSD school to another, no action is required. The updated information will appear when it is available.
If you have questions, please contact your school's office.
