Fall 2020, SPECIAL EDITION 01 - 9/24/2020
REMINDER to PARENTS
Selection for in-person or virtual learning for the second quarter (6 weeks) is due by Friday, 9/25/20. Here's the LINK with the information to make your selection.  
The user and password are the same codes that you used when you were setting up your PowerSchool account. They were emailed to your student's HISD email.
 
Please also note that per HISD, if selection is not made by Friday, 9/25/20, your child will automatically be placed in the "in-person" category. So please make your selection by deadline!
WE HEARD A RUMOR...
HISD HAS (FINALLY) INFORMED SOME ADMINISTRATORS THAT SCHOOLS WILL BE ALLOWED TO HAVE "HYBRID" CLASSROOM PLANS, WHEREAS THE KIDS CAN HOPEFULLY KEEP THEIR TEACHER REGARDLESS OF PARENT'S CHOICE (F2F OR REMOTE).

HISD REPORTEDLY IS ALLOWING FOR TEACHERS TO KEEP TEACHING THEIR CURRENT STUDENTS, (BOTH IN-CLASS/F2F AND REMOTE/ONLINE)...

***FINAL CONFIRMATION / CVHS SPECIFIC DECISIONS ARE (OBVIOUSLY) PENDING OFFICIAL WORD FROM CARNEGIE ADMINISTRATION***
BREAKING NEWS...
FROM CVHS:
EARLIER TODAY 9/24/2020
Hi CVHS community,

Today we held a virtual all school assembly with student, faculty, and staff. We went over the HISD and CVHS reopening plans. We have posted a recording of the assembly on our website as well as answers to questions submitted by advocacies and students. We have also posted the slides we displayed. Please visit Virtual Learning @ CVHS for all the links. Please email any unanswered questions to CVHS@houstonisd.org AFTER you have read the frequently asked questions. We tried to answer everything we could think of and everything we received from students. We know there are unanswered questions for you (and for us).

Students and Parents:
The deadline to select if you will remain virtual or return to CVHS is THIS Friday (tomorrow), September 25. If you don’t make a selection, the system will default you to face-to-face instruction at CVHS.
To make your selection, you MUST log in to the HISD Connect Parent Portal through a parent account. Students will not see the forms when logged in as the student. Letters for how to create an account and access the HISD Connect Parent Portal were mailed TWICE to the HISD student email accounts.
The following are a series of resources that are useful:

ADDRESSING THE BOARD AT BOARD MEETINGS
The Board of Education welcomes members of the community to speak on subjects related to the school district. Community members can address the board in one of two ways:

Speakers to Agenda Items - During any board meeting, people may speak about items on the agenda for that meeting.
Hearing of the Community - During the regular monthly board meeting, people may speak about a district-related subject not covered by an item on the meeting agenda.

To comply with state and local requirements during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, and to protect the health of our community, the Hattie Mae White Administration Building is closed and board meetings are being conducted on line.

The procedures have changed...
