Good evening parents, 

 

You may have already heard that HISD is extending the spring break to 4/10.  As of this evening, the plan is to reopen our school on Monday, 4/13/20.  I pray that you and your families are safe and well during this time. To provide our students with quality learning experiences during this break, I am sharing the following technology learning resources below.  

 

Your child can have access from school or home to the following websites or Apps:

 

  • Imagine Language and Literacy to practice and enhance Reading and Language skills.
  • Imagine Math to develop and practice Math Skills specific to student needs.
  • Imagine Math Facts to review and practice grade-level Math Facts.
  • myON Digital Library to explore over 6,000 digital books for independent reading.
  • Digital Literacy for Learning.com to improve Keyboarding and Computer skills.

 

How to have Home Access:

 

  • Open a web browser (preferably Chrome) and access the Hub (Clever) at houstonisd.org/hub
  • When prompted with the Houston ISD Login Service Screen, enter:
  • Your Child’s Username: SXXXXXXX@online.houstonisd.org
  • (XXXXXXXXX is student ID number)
  • Your Child’s Password: XXXXXXXX
  • (“X” is the student’s 8-dgit birthday. ex: May 24, 2003 ---> 05242003)
  • HUB login instructions: https://www.houstonisd.org/hubinfo
