Starting Mon., June 10, HISD will begin operating on a four-day work schedule as a cost-saving measure. All offices will be open for business from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Mon. through Thurs., and closed on Fridays. The district will revert to its regular schedule starting August 5.

Sign up now for mandatory CPR training June 22–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 22, and Thurs., Aug. 8, to ensure that the district is in compliance with this legal requirement.
