Whitehouse Independent School District

Holloway 6th Grade Home

Dear Holloway Parents,

Our school teams have worked hard to have your child’s belongings ready to be picked up Wednesday, May 27 and Thursday, May 28. During your scheduled pick up time, chrome books, library books, calculators, and band instruments will also be checked in. Please review the schedule below for your scheduled pick up time.

Parents can come to their child’s school between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. Please make every effort to retrieve items during the set day and times.

Keeping everyone’s health and safety in mind, this will be a curbside pick-up process. Families will not be allowed in the buildings and students’ belongings will only be released to adults. School personnel will wear gloves and masks.

 

Holloway Materials Check In and Pick Up Schedule

We have organized the event by alphabetical order to help us keep it organized, manageable, and as safe as possible.  Please keep in mind that we can only have a limited number of staff working during each time slot.  We appreciate your patience and cooperation!

We will utilize the front drive to make this happen.  Item drop offs and pickups will be organized along the front drive with signs designating the areas. 

Designated Time Slots – by Student Last Name

  • A-L 9:00 am – 5:00 pm   Wednesday, May 27
  • M-Z 9:00 am – 5:00 pm Thursday, May 28

 

When you pull into the drive, a staff member will ask your last name.  They will call staff to retrieve your child’s belongings.  The staff member will bring the items to your car.  The staff member will then ask if you are returning school items, such as, chrome books, library books, calculators, band instruments, etc.  You will be directed to the appropriate spot to turn in your items. 

Thank you for your support and cooperation! 

 

Sincerely,

Stacy Pineda, Principal

Holloway Parents,


We hope that your family is healthy and safe during this time.  Whitehouse is committed to serving your family and doing our best to provide continued learning opportunities for your student.  Holloway will be using two programs called Education Galaxy and Google Classroom for Reading and Math to provide online activities for students. History, Science and electives will use Google Classroom to provide lessons and resources for students.  Students have been using both programs in their classrooms and should be very familiar with them. If your or your student have any problems accessing either program, please email the classroom teacher.


The district has created a central resource for you to access this and other online tools for your student.  On the Whitehouse ISD website at https://www.whitehouseisd.org/, select the tab at the top that says COVID-19.  This site will have district updates, learning tools, and supplementary resources.  Holloway-specific resources may be found on a tab to the right that says Holloway Online Learning.  Click here for a direct link to that site


Here is a direct link to the Clever Portal.  Students will use their district email to access the program.  This email address is available on Skyward family access or through your student’s teacher.


If your student has not used Education Galaxy before, they will be asked to take a diagnostic test before starting assignments.  This will help place your student where they need to be.  

To provide both flexibility and meaningful learning, we are expecting our students to complete the following:


  • Students will work on Education Galaxy/Google Classroom daily for a minimum of one hour depending on the assignment(s) issued by teachers. 
  • Students will read 30 minutes daily.
  • Students should participate in some sort of physical activity for 30 minutes daily.  A list of suggested activities will be posted weekly in Coach Drain’s Google Classroom.

We expect there will be some issues and hiccups as we get started.  We appreciate your patience and feedback as we work to support our students.  


Above all, students first!

WISD Board of Trustees votes to implement the Guardian Plan

The Whitehouse ISD Board of Trustees approved policy that will allow board authorized personnel only to possess a concealed firearm while on campus. At a special called meeting Monday, May 18th, the board addressed school safety and approved the Guardian Plan. WISD believes everyone has the right to a safe and caring environment. The Guardian Plan will ensure an effective and timely response to emergency situations. In Texas there are just over 1,000 school districts and more than 30% of those currently authorize employees to carry a firearm according to a 2018 survey by the Texas Association of School Boards.

Special Board Meeting for Monday, May 18, 2020

The WISD Board of Trustees will host a special board meeting on Monday, May 18th to consider the Guardian Plan.

Zoom meeting information can be found on the School Board page under Minutes and Agenda. Meeting time begins at 6pm.
