Many parents have questions when sending their child to school for the first time. We hope to answer some of them here:
How do I add money to my child's lunch card
You can visit the cafeteria in the mornings (after breakfast service) and funds to your child’s account by paying cash. You may obtain an envelope from the front desk for Food Services and place it in the box in the cafeteria. Visit the HISD Food Services website and add funds to your child’s account online.
May I visit my child's classroom during the day
Parents are usually welcome in the classroom as volunteers. Please check with your child’s teacher for ways that you may be able to assist and schedule a time to attend.
Can I still purchase school supplies for this year
School supply packs are still available for all grade levels. You may place your order online at the Herod PTO Online Store.
Where can I purchase Uniform and Spirit shirts
Herod PTO sells uniform shirts (both T-shirts and Polo shirts) with the Herod logo on it. These are available before the school year begins at the Meet the Teacher (Jet Fest) event. After school begins, you can purchase from the School Store which is located across the hall from the front desk or online a the Herod PTO Online Store.
What school supplies does my child need
The supplies needed vary by grade level. Here is a complete list. If you are buying your supplies rather than ordering from the PTO, please send them with your child on the first day of school.
