In our continued efforts to ensure the safety and security of our students, all 8th-graders at HSI-Houston are required to carry only Clear Backpacks at all times. We do not have enough space for every student to have a locker, therefore our school will be providing you one clear backpack, for free to only the 8th grade students. Please note that if the provided backpack is damaged or lost, parents will be responsible for a replacement. Your student will be issued the backpack during the first week of school. Students may carry a pouch small enough to fit into the front pocket of the backpack for personal items. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at (713)541-3030.
