HISD’s top priority is providing a safe environment for students and staff. Safety drills and training events are conducted periodically as required by Texas Education Agency code. In the event of an emergency that requires reunification of students with their parents or guardians, it is critical every student’s demographic and contact information to be updated in HISD Connect via Parent Portal.
The HISD Enrollment Team and Federal and State Compliance Division will be available to assist parents or guardians with creating an Parent Portal account or updating their child’s contact information in their existing account.
