Open House 2015

Good Morning Hixson Parents and Friends,
Remember, Hixson Open House is this Thursday, August 20th!  
Open House Schedule and Information: 
Thursday, 8/20 6:26-8:15
During our middle school open house, parents will have the opportunity to "live" a sample version of their child's daily schedule. Please remember to visit our PTO table in the main entrance!!! Thank you PTO!  Student schedules will be disseminated for open house through the following methods:

  • Parent portal access to SIS.  Parents are able to view and print student schedules via the portal in the SIS system
  • Students can copy their schedules into their student handbook planners for parent use, or write a copy for their parents
    • If you do not have your child's schedule from the parent portal or your student, back-up copies of schedules will be available at the main entrance of the school at 6:00 pm before open house begins at 6:30.
    • We anticipate most parents having the schedule ahead of time, so back- up schedule lines should not be too long.
