In a sunny state of mind.

 

 

Parent WhatsApp Groups

The WhatsApp grade-level chat groups for parents have been disabled for maintenance during the summer. You will receive a notification with a link to join new your group closer to the first day of school.

 

Health Records

Don't forget to schedule doctor appointments to update your child's medical records! As part of the annual health requirements for infants to 8th grade, the school must receive a completed Health Form and a copy of Current Immunization Records by August 1. Submit documents electronically or by mail with attention to the nurses.

The clinic is closed during the summer but the nurses are checking correspondence as they organize the files for the upcoming school year. Contact the nurses for questions.

Coffee with Kelly

If you missed the Q&As with Kelly Broaddus, Interim Head of School, and members of the leadership team, don't worry! We will offer another session to meet with Kelly close to the start of school and discuss the plans for the new school year. During the last meeting, parents inquired about topics such as the search process for a new Head of School, enrollment updates, curriculum details and more. 

 

Safety and Security

HSES remains committed to creating a safe haven for students and staff. The leadership team is reviewing the safety protocols and evaluating enhancements to strengthen the security on campus, including the option of electronic or keyless entry. One of the enhancements that have already been installed is the new camera system that covers every section of our campus with high-definition devices and remote access for continuous monitoring.

In addition, we will conduct a Safety Audit in the fall to identify best practices and opportunities for growth. We will also revisit the safety protocols with teachers during In-Service and remind them of the importance of following the guidelines as we prepare for the new school year. 

With these security measures in place, we can ensure the safety and security of every student and staff member while on campus. We will also continue to evaluate and build on these measures so they remain as strong as possible. 

 

 

Summer Reading

A fun activity for students during the summer is to read, read, read! Students received instructions, expectations and assignments for summer reading before the last day of school so make sure your kids are enjoying a good book from the reading lists in the folder!

Reading Lists

Speaking of Reading...

The Holocaust Museum Houston is hosting library events throughout the summer such as Teens Take Over Tuesdays for students 13 and up, and Storytime for children 8 years and younger. View the schedule of events for details.

Campus Updates

Construction to beautify our facilities continues and we can't wait to show you the updates! The new floors and paint in the MS classrooms have been completed, while the new infant room and primary class with a bathroom are in motion. Also, playground shades are being added in PS and EC, while new window shades are being installed throughout the whole school. Lastly, the architects have presented a state-of-the-art design to develop a covered carpool and entrance area in the EC building with a canopy driveway and walkway.

Student Email Accounts

The technology team has temporarily disabled the student Google accounts to prepare them for the next school year. Students will not have access to Google Classrooms or Gmail during the summer. After maintenance, the accounts will be reactivated to reflect updates and new tools.

This pause does not affect student accounts, stored files or information, and/or resources with separate login credentials.

 

 

Summer Office Hours

The main school office is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is closed on Fridays during the summer. However, the EC office will be open during regular business hours. Both offices will be closed the week of July 4. Drop off used uniform donations at the main front office during these times.
