One of the hardest transitions from elementary school is how much communication goes straight to the students. Teachers and coaches tell their students the information and trust that they do what they are supposed to do. Thankfully, there are many ways to stay in the know.


From Pershing:


Sent on Tuesdays, weekly from the PTO. We do our best to gather information across the school to share with you. By registering on this site, you will receive the Panda Post. You can also SIGN UP HERE.


Some teachers and coaches choose to use Remind for communication and reminders. Look carefully through paper sent home at the beginning of the year and be sure to sign up for the correct class.


Occasionally, Dr. Shetzer or other admins will send emails, callouts, or send letters from their database at school. Go to Powerschool and verify that your information is correct. Even then, some emails can get lost in spam folders. Add these two email addresses to your contacts. 


Make sure your Information on PowerSchool is correct.


Signing up for HISD’s text message alerts is quick and easy. Simply text the word “YES” to 68453 from each cell phone on which you wish to receive text messages. Make sure all your cell phone numbers are registered with the school your child attends.

If you have students in middle or high school, you can also register their cell phone numbers so they can be contacted by the school in case of emergencies. To do this, contact the school and request that your student’s cell phone number be added to the School Information System, and text “yes” to 68453 from your child’s phone.
