North News - December 11, 2020


North Families,

We have one more week until Winter Break! Thank you for your support as we finish out this first semester of the 20-21 school year. Here are a few announcements:

Friday, December 18th - Regular Schedule
Friday, December 11th is the Friday before Winter Break. This will be a regular school day and not an early dismissal day.

Free Meals Extended for School Year
CISD Child Nutrition announces that the free meals for all in person elementary students and all remote students has been extended through the end of the school year in 2021. Visit for details.

Parent Square
You should have received an email from ParentSquare to activate an account for the district’s new mass notification system. ParentSquare is replacing Blackboard/Parentlink as CISD’s mass notification system.

Those of you who already have an account established in ParentSquare from a teacher using this platform do not need to activate a new account.  You only have to set up one account, which will show all of your children who are CISD students in your account. 

The district has approved the use of ParentSquare, CISD email, Schoology and HAC emails to communicate with parents and students. This will streamline communications and remove the Remind, GroupMe, Teamsnap and other platforms, so parents/guardians and students in the future will only have one tool they can use for their notifications from the district, rather than the possibility of multiple channels depending on the teacher.

Here are quick videos in English and Spanish that explain what ParentSquare is and all the features for parents:


Thank you,
