The Scottie Scoop The Scottie Scoop August Edition

[08/13/21]   Smith families,

Just reminder that all students and staff will be required to wear a mask starting Monday, August 16th. Don’t forget to send them to school wearing a mask.

CASE students will wear masks as appropriate to their needs. No masks are required on the playground. We will continue to encourage hand washing and the use of hand sanitizer, etc.

Please continue to partner with us to keep education first at Smith by complying with this mandate. Thanks for a great first week of school. We can’t do it with your support! What you do matters! We appreciate you!

Please contact me directly if you have any questions air concerns. [email protected]

[08/07/21]   Parents/Staff:

With only a few days left before Aug. 11 when all of our schools open their doors, I want to welcome everyone to the 2021-22 school year in Spring ISD and hope you’ll watch our video highlighting all the great programs and opportunities we have for our students this year.

Welcome back to school!

Video message from Superintendent Watson

I know COVID-19 continues to be a concern for many in our community, and I want to reassure you that, along with taking the virus seriously here in Spring ISD, we are in constant touch with local and state officials and will continue to update our protocols as we receive more guidance – especially in light of the spread of more contagious variants of the virus.

On Thursday afternoon, the Texas Education Agency reiterated that all students and staff may wear masks if they choose, and we would certainly encourage everyone who wishes to do so, especially anyone who is not vaccinated. Although we’re all excited to reach the stage when masks are no longer needed, evidence still points to their effectiveness in protecting against the spread of the virus.

We also need everyone’s help in ensuring that students stay home if they are feeling ill or if they receive a positive COVID-19 test. We were especially encouraged to learn that the TEA has opened the door to providing remote instruction for a total of up to 20 days to students who are ill, test positive or need to quarantine because they’re a close contact.

We will be providing additional information on this as we start the school year, but it’s important to know that this remote option is only available for a limited number of days and may require a note from a physician or documentation of a positive test result.

In addition, we have decided to continue with our COVID-19 tracker for the new school year to help keep everyone informed about conditions in our schools and district. We will be counting on everyone to let us know about positive cases so we can keep our tracker updated with the most accurate information.

We’re all ready for a fresh start with the beginning of the new school year. However, as long as the pandemic continues to impact the health and safety of our community members, we here in Spring ISD will continue to do everything in our power to protect the well-being of students, staff and district families. We still have some challenges ahead, but we are also ready and excited to welcome our students and staff back to school.

Kind regards,

Dr. Rodney E. Watson, Superintendent of Schools

COVID-19 Protocols / Overview 07/27/2021

COVID-19 Protocols / Overview

Parents/Guardians:

Welcome to the 2021-22 School Year! With classes starting on Wednesday, Aug. 11, we wanted to share some important information with you regarding COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

This year, in alignment with the Governor of Texas’ Executive Order GA-34, Spring ISD is not requiring masks for either students or staff. However, if you are concerned, we encourage you to have your child wear face coverings over the nose and mouth when it’s not possible to socially distance, especially for those who are not vaccinated.

We know our elementary students are not yet eligible for the vaccine, so we believe masks are an important strategy in keeping our school communities safe.

In a change from the last school year, we will no longer be requiring students/staff/visitors to undergo temperature checks or other screening procedures before entering the buildings. However, we will continue to emphasize the importance of students/staff/visitors staying home when ill and self-screening for potential COVID-19 symptoms.

We do ask that the parent/guardian of any student who tests positive for COVID-19 let their campus know so we can track trends and report to the Harris County Department of Health as required. Parents/guardians will be asked to keep their children at home until they can provide written medical documentation, such as a doctor’s note or test results, releasing students to return to school. Our teachers will assist any students who need access to assignments by uploading them into Schoology or providing paper packets.

We will continue a regular schedule of cleaning and disinfecting in buildings and buses, as well as encourage the use of hand sanitizer and frequent hand washing. In addition, we will continue our partnership with Harris County Public Health and other private vendors to offer vaccination and testing opportunities as appropriate for our staff and students.

At this point, there is no requirement that the district continue with its COVID-19 dashboard to track positive cases or provide general communications beyond contact tracing. However, please be assured that if circumstances indicate that a general communication is needed, we will keep you updated.

Finally, please know that the district is constantly working with our local health officials to guide our decisions and procedures. If any changes are made to our protocols, available at www.springisd.org/covid19, we will keep you updated.

We look forward to a great school year and partnering with you to ensure every student is successful.

Dr. Rodney E. Watson, Superintendent of Schools

Spring ISD families getting ready for the upcoming school year are invited to the district’s 2021 Back to School Expo, from 8 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturday, July 31, at the district’s Planet Ford Stadium, 23802 Cypresswood Dr., Spring, TX 77373. The event will feature giveaways including free backpacks, school supplies and food distribution to support district families and students heading back to their classrooms in August.

Students will also have the opportunity to sign up for Chromebooks and internet hotspots, if needed, for the upcoming school year. In addition, through the district’s partnership with Harris County Public Health, individuals aged 12 and older will have the chance to receive their COVID-19 vaccination at the expo. Students vaccinated during the event will be entered in a special prize drawing.

Along with Harris County Public Health, the Spring ISD 2021 Back to School Expo is also being made possible by Northwest Assistance Ministries and other local organizations that are helping sponsor the free event.

“As always, we’re grateful to our community partners, whose support helps make events like this possible for our Spring ISD families and students,” said Executive Director of Family Engagement Tranita Carroll. “Although this year’s event is being kept smaller to help ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers and community members, it’s still a great opportunity for all our families who are gearing up for the first day of school.”

Carroll said the expo had been scaled back from previous years to a mostly drive-thru event, except for those choosing to get COVID-19 vaccinations. District staff and administrators will be on hand to help direct traffic, greet students and their parents and guardians, and place items in vehicle trunks. In addition, district staff will be evaluating students whose first language is not English.

For more information, please contact Ysabel Luna, Parent Engagement Specialist, at [email protected] or 281-891-6685.

Spring Independent School District / Spring ISD Home 07/22/2021

Spring Independent School District / Spring ISD Home

Back to school in SISD: What parents can expect.

-How will things be different for this school year? [Things may not be different for you, but I do want to ask.] You can also just include the website link you would like me to share with viewers, if this is easiest.

Spring ISD will be operating on a traditional school schedule this year with all students learning in-person. We are working hard to encourage our students and staff to follow all federal and state recommendations as they relate to COVID-19 vaccinations as part of our primary defense against the virus. However, with the more contagious Delta variant spreading and with children under 12 still ineligible for vaccines, it’s recommended that unvaccinated students and staff keep wearing masks.

-What new things can parents / students expect to be different? If anything?

Specialty Programs
This school year, Spring ISD is launching more options for our students, including:

School for International Studies at Bammel, located at 16711 Ella Blvd., will be the district’s first school to serve pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. The school is initially recruiting for students in pre-K through 2nd grade, with plans to add a grade level each year until the program serves students in pre-K through 8th grade. The school will feature a two-way dual language immersion program in Spanish at the elementary level with additional languages for students to explore once they reach middle school.

Bailey Middle School for Performing & Visual Arts, located at 3377 James C. Leo Drive, offers an exciting array of fine arts courses, including traditional and jazz bands, photography, technical theater, creative writing, dance and digital filmmaking to zoned students attending Bailey Middle School. The school is also offering expanded advanced core academic offerings along with new advanced electives.

Claughton Polytechnic Middle School, located at 3000 Spears Road, will feature classes in communications, video game programming and animation, digital forensics and robotics, among other subjects. Students will have the opportunity to attend local, state and national technology-related events as well as participate in internships, apprenticeships, multimedia projects and community service.

Springwoods Village Middle School International Baccalaureate (IB) program, located at 1120 Crossgate Blvd., just received its official IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) certification after a rigorous application and review process. The IB program is designed to foster diversity, curiosity and a lifelong love of learning and growth.

Barbering at Westfield High School, an innovative course of studies new at Westfield High School this year, will enable students to train and prepare to become licensed barbers through the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) while still in high school. Completion of the program will prepare graduates for success whether in postsecondary studies or as professional barbers.

Pre-K in Spring ISD
Spring ISD offers full-day Pre-K at all 25 elementary campuses and at the new School for International Studies at Bammel located at Bammel Middle School.

In addition, the district is expanding its pre-K program to meet the needs of more students by offering a tuition-free option for 4-year-olds who don’t meet state eligibility requirements. These seats will be awarded on a space-available basis.

Additional Days School Year (ADSY) campuses at Clark Primary and Clark Intermediate
For the 2021-22 school year, Spring ISD is adding some new initiatives as part of its overall plan to transform schools across the district. Specifically, this year both Clark Primary and Clark Intermediate are adding more days to the school calendar.

This additional day school year initiative (ADSY) is designed to reimagine the teaching job, deepen engagement and mastery among students and strengthen whole-child support with more time from brain breaks and free play. Both Clark Primary and Clark Intermediate began the school year on July 19.

Transportation: New ZPASS System

Spring ISD is introducing a new scanner system on all of its buses for the 2021-22 school year that will give added peace of mind to parents by allowing them to know when and where their student gets on and off the bus.

Students carry a small card that automatically logs their entry or exit when they pass the scanner on the school bus. The information is then instantly and securely available to parents. Notifications can also be sent directly to their computer or cell phone via a text message.

In addition, these cards will have a dual purpose to allow students to scan at the Point of Sale in the cafeteria lines, adding convenience and efficiency for both parents and child nutrition workers. To learn more, visit www.springisd.org/zpass.

-Will you have a virtual learning option?

All Spring ISD students will be returning to campus for in-person classes. However, Spring ISD has long offered a virtual program for high school students looking for advanced classes and alternative ways to earn credits toward their diploma, and we will continue to do so.

-What are you telling students / parents about masks?

Spring ISD is not requiring masks for either students or staff in accordance with the governor’s Executive Order. However, we are encouraging face coverings over the nose and mouth throughout the district, including on school buses, when it’s not possible to socially distance, especially for those who are not vaccinated.

-Is there anything else you want to make sure we include about your school district?

We start classes on Aug. 11 and are super excited to see our students back in school! We also have a lot of information at www.springisd.org.

Spring Independent School District / Spring ISD Home Pre-K & Kindergarten registration is now open for 2021-22 school year! Visit www.springisd.org/prek for more information.
