    Also, your Assistant Principal will be Ms. Sherrie Allen-Ford. She is returning to serve the Clark Intermediate family for her second year.

    Families, safety is our number one priority. Our custodial staff worked tirelessly to ensure all areas of the building were deep cleaned and ready for your child’s return. We will continue to be sensitive and proactive to the meet challenges concerning the current health environment in our community.

    • The student should mute the computer when joining the virtual classroom and keep the microphone muted when they are not speaking to minimize background noise.
    • Use the chat box to ask questions and make comments related to class.
    • Utilize headphones with built-in microphone if there are other people in the home while instruction is taking place.
    • If technology is not working, contact the teacher or school immediately.
    • Use respectful behavior and language.
    • Use academic integrity.

  • WANT TO SEE YOUR STUDENT’S GRADES AND REPORT CARDS? LOG INTO THE HOME ACCESS CENTER (HAC)

     

    We wanted to remind you how to check your child’s grades on the Home Access Center.


    The key is to log into my.springisd.org and into HAC. There you will find a Grades tab. When you click on that, you will see where to locate your child’s progress report (IPR), report cards and more.


    Remember, the username and password you use to log into the portal is the same username and password for logging into HAC. Also, parents should log in using their credentials, not their student’s.  Parents if you forgot your log-in/username, please contact the Help Desk at 281-891-6337. Service Desk hours are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. or call our Clark Intermediate front office at 281-891-8540.


    Staying connected with your child’s academic progress is a great way to ensure your student’s success in school. By monitoring and encouraging, you can help support your child’s performance.


    See the attached handouts in English and Spanish for step-by-step directions.

    Spring ISD and Blue Cross Blue Shield to Offer Free Immunizations for Students Sept. 14

    HOUSTON – Aug. 24, 2020 – Spring ISD is joining with the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas Care Van to offer free immunizations to students from 9 a.m. to noon on Monday, Sept. 14 at the Spring ISD Community Engagement Center, 17125 Ella Blvd. The event, which will require appointments, offers parents and guardians a chance to make sure their children’s required immunizations are complete and up-to-date, at no cost to families.

     

    “We are excited to again be partnering with Blue Cross Blue Shield to bring this important event to our Spring ISD families,” said Director of Parent Engagement Tranita Carroll. “It’s a great opportunity to make sure our students have all the immunizations they need, and we’re happy to help make them available at no cost.”

     

    Due to COVID-19, additional health and safety measures will be in place this year to protect families, clinic staff and volunteers, and the number of available doses will be limited. For this reason, parents and guardians must register ahead of time. To register your child for an immunization appointment on Sept. 14, 2020, contact the Family Engagement department at 281-891-6685.

     

    Participating families should bring their children’s immunization shot records and make sure that everyone over two years of age has a mask covering their mouth and nose. Clinic staff may also perform a brief screening and temperature check to ensure students are well enough to receive their shots.

     

    Participating students will receive a free backpack donated by Community Health Choice.

     

    For more information about immunization requirements for Texas students, or to learn about reduced-cost immunization clinics and other local immunization resources, please visit www.springisd.org/immunization.

    Some Resources for Parents During COVID-19 Closures

    For parents dealing with disruptions to everyday life brought about by COVID-19, these are challenging times. Schools are closed, parents may be working from home or concerned about their own jobs, and so much seems uncertain. Thankfully, there are resources available to help parents deal with some of these common challenges.

     

    “How do I talk to my kids about COVID-19?”

    Children are naturally curious and perceptive, and will often look to their parents – and other adult authority figures – to help them understand and make sense of what is happening around them. This is true now more than ever, as the spread of COVID-19 brings so many changes into children’s lives so quickly. Parents are often the first and most important source of information, and they can do a lot to help their children develop a positive, resilient and resourceful mindset.

    There are a growing number of helpful resources on the internet. In particular, Spring ISD counselors have recommended resources from the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) and PBS, including Talking to Children About COVID-19 (Coronavirus): A Parent Resource [PDF] and How to Talk to Your Kids About Coronavirus, which also contains additional links to online programs and other resources to share with your family.

    Here are some key tips for parents to keep in mind:

    • Be as calm as you can. Children and teens are great at reading how their parents feel. The calmer you are, the calmer your child will be.
    • Answer their questions, even if the answer is “I don’t know.” Right now, some people are sick. Most, however, are not.
    • Tell them adults are working hard to keep them safe and healthy. Teach them what they can do to stay healthy, such as washing their hands and covering their cough with their elbow or a tissue instead of their hand.
    • Turn off the technology. Seeing too much news coverage, too many social media posts and too many web pages about COVID-19 can make both parents and their children anxious.
    • Make a routine, and do your best to stick to it. If possible, try waking up and going to bed at the same time each day. Eat meals at the same time. Have everyone bathe and dress as if going to school or work. 

    “What if I need a little help myself?”

    The COVID-19 closures, cancellations and quarantines have put a lot of pressure on both children and adults. For those who may have lost income – or who are just feeling overwhelmed – 2-1-1 Texas, a program of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, helps Texas citizens connect with the services they need.

    You can dial 2-1-1, or 877-541-7905, to find information about resources in your local community. You can also search online at www.211texas.org.
