Here’s a post from our PTO president, Nhi Le, to help you all while we’re here at home. As you know, HISD has currently extended the district-wide closure through April 10. During that time, look for updates from HISD and from Principal Ying and begin getting access to HISD at HOME. Wishing you all health and safety at this time.
Just wanted to share information I was given. Hopefully will help families with kids during this time…
