Schedule your fall mobile mammogram today

2013 June 19
by HISD Communications

Each year, The Rose offers on-site screening mammograms to female HISD employees who meet certain criteria.

The last few dates in July are already booked solid, but seven new dates have been added for the fall, starting on Sept. 9 at Lee High School and extending through Oct. 30 at the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center.

Interested women are encouraged to act quickly, as only a limited number of mammograms can be performed each day.

Please see the attached flyer (.pdf) for complete details.

Survey reveals summer vacation isn’t just for kids

More than 80 percent of the employees who took our survey in the June 14 edition of eNews said they were planning to take some time off this summer. Vacation destinations ranged from Maryland to Florida and South Carolina.

Most respondents said they would be visiting family at those locations, but others were taking cruises and going on camping trips. One employee, who will be taking part in a 65-mile hike with a troop of Boy Scouts at the Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico, said his main goal was to avoid being eaten by a bear.

Mandatory CPR training for coaches, other eligible staff June 27–Aug. 8

If you are a campus-based member of Team HISD who participates, sponsors, and/or coaches any UIL-sanctioned or co-curricular activities, then the State of Texas requires you to be certified in the administration of Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation, Automated External Defibrillator, and First Aid (CPR/AED/FA).

Stipend payments are dependent upon this certification, so if you need the training, please sign up now for one of the available sessions between Thurs., June 27, and Thurs., Aug. 8, to ensure that the district is in compliance with this legal requirement.

For details, including training dates, times, and locations, please see this related Academic Services Memo.
