March 1, 2021: A Message from Principal Hobbs

Dear Rice School Parents and Families,

It's that time again! Grading Cycle 5 begins March 22nd, and we need to know if you plan to have your child virtual or in-person.

Starting today, March 1st through March 5th, HISD Families may select either in-person or virtual instruction for the 5th six weeks. Parents should make their selection through the HISD Connect Parent Portal under the "Forms" section no later than this Friday, March 5th.

  • If parents would like to keep their selection as-is, no action is needed. The currently selected mode of instruction will carry over.
  • If a change is needed, parents should log in to the HISD Connect Parent Portal and make their new selection by this Friday, March 5th.
  • Parents also can contact their child’s school to change their selection.

Please utilize our helpful step-by-step videos on completing forms or getting started in the Parent Portal.

This process is continuing to ensure campuses can begin planning for physical space, staffing, and scheduling. Once a selection is made, the choice is valid for the remainder school year. There will be additional opportunities to change a selection throughout the year, if desired.
