While seniors throughout Texas and across the country have had unexpected endings to their high school careers, graduation is just around the corner for the class of 2020. Here are six key things Hutto ISD seniors need to know.

  1. An in-person graduation ceremony is planned

    Hutto ISD announced May 1 it will host an in-person graduation ceremony for Hutto High School’s class of 2020. The ceremony, originally scheduled for May 29 at Hutto Memorial Stadium, has been postponed to June 5 due to the Texas Education Agency's guidance on outdoor ceremonies.

    A backup date has been scheduled for June 6 at Hutto Memorial Stadium, located at 573 Chris Kelley Blvd., Hutto. Tickets for the ceremony are limited to two per student, the district confirmed May 7. For more information, click here.

  2. How to request a transcript

    For students looking to receive a copy of their high school transcript, the district requires applicants to fill out a request form. Documents can be retrieved electronically, via mail delivery or pickup, or can be directly sent to a school or agency electronically or through the mail. For more information, click here.

  3. How grades will be calculated during the coronavirus

    Due to the pandemic, grading procedures have been readjusted to account for students’ online learning curriculums. For final report cards, students will receive pass, fail or incomplete grades for their spring semester performances. Grade-point averages and class rankings for Hutto High School will be based on the fall semester only. For more information, click here.

  4. Counseling, mental health and wellness resources available


    Since March 23, HISD students and parents have been able to request appointments with their school counselors during the pandemic. Area and national counseling resources outlined on the district’s website include the Williamson County Mobile Outreach Team, Bluebonnet Trails Community Services, the Hutto Resource Center and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. For more information, click here.

  5. How to retrieve personal property from Hutto High School and Riverhorse Academy

    For students looking to retrieve personal items from Hutto High School and Riverhorse Academy, district administrators and high school teachers will be coordinating directly with parents and students on drop-off and pickup times. The coordinated times are designed to ensure social distancing and limit the number of students in the building at a single time, per a May 5 HISD parent letter. For more information, click here.

  6. How to return a borrowed Chromebook

    HISD will host a Chromebook drop-off from May 27-30 at Hutto High School for students who borrowed them for e-learning curriculums. More details will be released in the coming days. For more information, click here.
