As student safety is our first and foremost priority, we ask that you keep the following in mind: Please ensure you have state issued identification readily available when checking out a student. Students will not be released to those not listed in our system or fail to provide proper identification. Additionally, in the event you have a student late to campus, we ask that parents or guardians take the time to come on campus to sign your son and/or daughter in. This ensures you are aware of your child's whereabouts and student safety.
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.

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.
