If a student is tardy, they report to the tardy table at the book room located in the main hallway to receive a tardy pass. For each tardy a student will be assigned an hour tutorial with a teacher of their choice. Once they have completed that tutorial they will turn in a note from their teacher verifying the tutorial to the tardy table.Multiple tardy offenders will be referred to appropriate AP.
How can I get my student out of class for an appointment?
To avoid a long wait for your student in the main office (and so we won't have to interrupt valuable classroom instruction time), the preferred method is:
1) E-mail HHSAttendance@pfisd.net. as soon as you know the time and date of your child's appointment. Include the following information in your e-mail: Student name, ID #, reason student is leaving (doctor, dentist appointment or other), what day and time your student needs to leave, and a daytime phone number where we can reach you (information may be verified). A Permit to Leave Class will be prepared for them. Your student can pick it up before school in the Main Office. At the time they need to leave, they will present the form to the teacher.
2) Send a note with your student to the main office before school. Please include the information requested above. They will be given a Permit to Leave Class to present to the teacher. Unless a student drives, parents are to come to the Main Office to sign out their student.
How do I get access to the parent portal to view my child's grades online?
Passwords to the parent portal can be picked up any regular business day in the Student Services Office. Please bring your driver's license for proof of identification.
Sorry, for security reasons, we are unable to e-mail passwords.
Do students have separate passwords to view their grades?

What is the cell phone policy?
