CHROMEBOOKS

All 9th graders and students who did not have a device issued to them have been issued a Chromebook. If your student does not have a working Chromebook, they can visit the UHS library to trade for a new one. If the student's device has damage, they will be responsible for charges.

10th and 11th graders traded their devices from last year for a brand-new Chromebook the week of October 4th-7th. All students traded a device unless they had damage to their previous Chromebook; once damages were paid, then they received a new Chromebook at that time. 

PAYING FOR TECH DAMAGES

Students are responsible for caring for their technology. They are responsible for accidental damages and may accrue charges if tech is lost or damaged. Please see this website to pay for accrued fees or damages. Please forward email receipt to show proof of payment to Mrs. Cunningham, the librarian.

If you prefer to pay with check or money order, you may pay on campus to the bookkeeper.

You can email the school librarian at kelly.cunningham@wacoisd.org if you have any questions.

STUDENT AND PARENT PORTAL

Parents and students, please check Parent/Student Portal weekly to see updates on grades and attendance.

If you need assistance with logging in to Parent Portal or Student Portal, please email the registrars below for password to be reset.

If a student does not attend a class period, they are counted absent. Progress report grades were finalized on 9/10 and report card grades will be finalized on 9/30. It is important that your student is attending and passing their classes so that they may receive credit for that course. The more support a student has to do these things, the better!
