Dear McCallum Parents Families
Thank you so much for your continued support of McCallum High School and Austin ISD. I wanted to make sure you are aware that beginning Nov. 2, we will be welcoming all students who wish to return to campus back for on-campus learning, while still offering the option of remote learning. Students will receive more face-to-face instruction, which will involve physical transitions between class periods.
To help us prepare for these changes, we need you to complete the most recent Family Learning Survey in the Parent Cloud no later than Oct. 28. This will help us create the best possible learning environment that will work for all students. At this time fewer than 30% of all McCallum families have completed the survey.
Please note that surveys can only be taken once per each secondary student enrolled. You will need your student’s ID number to access the survey and respond for your student. Questions about the survey or requests for help with the survey can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. The link to the survey is also available on the main AISD webpage, and will be available on the AISD Facebook, on the AISD Twitter, and in the Oct. 23 newsletter. Please feel free to spread the word to ensure that all of our families’ voices are heard!
Outside Classroom Initiative
Thank you to everyone who was able to join us on Thursday for the Zoom meeting about our Outside Classroom Initiative. We had a great turnout and made some progress toward getting our students and teachers outside. We have some work to do to make this vision a reality. I will be sending out an email to all our families with ways you can help. We can do this!
All AISD high schools are starting on a hybrid schedule on November 2. Most students will come two days per week. Some students will be invited to attend five days per week
