An Important Note from Ms. Callahan:
Hi, families and students!
I can't wait to see your smiling faces again in the near future. For now, it is important that we remain healthy and safe as we continue to connect via Remind and email.
As a district, we have been working hard to prepare to support you while we are away from the classroom. Austin ISD will continue to update the Learning At-Home website, complete with a recommended daily schedule, online courses, and resources for all grade levels. In addition, I will provide structured learning activities for your student via BLEND, which may be accessed by logging in to the AISD Portal, beginning Monday, April 6, 2020. For assistance with BLEND, click here. In the case that BLEND is a real struggle for you, please reach out so that I may assist you and your student directly with BLEND for the weeks to come.
If your family has limited access to technology, the district will continue to provide printed packets for pick-up on Wednesdays between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM at nearby AISD campuses, such as Akins Early College High School, Pleasant Hill Elementary School, and Crockett Early College High School. Additional locations may be found here. Please note that packets are on a first-come, first-serve basis, so be sure to get there early!
To best support you, I will be holding Office Hours between 10:00-11:00 AM and 2:00-3:00 PM on a Monday-through-Friday basis. During Office Hours, I will offer one-on-one support for any questions/concerns you may have using a video conferencing platform called Zoom. If you have not yet joined Zoom, please click here to download.
Please don't hesitate to reach out via Remind or email if you are in need of any and all support. Wishing you and your family safety and health during this difficult time.
Instructions for Accessing the Portal
