A Message from Dr. Stone

What a fantastic first day of school! It was so awesome seeing all the kids' smiling faces and their excitement on the first day.


Just a reminder, the front doors will open each morning at 8:10. If you have to enter the building prior to 8:10 starting at 7:45 a.m., you need to enter through the cafeteria door in the back of the school. Students will not be able to enter the building in the back starting at 8:10, and traffic will be diverted to the front drop off drive.


If you are dropping off in the front drive, please pull all the way up and fill in all available space once 8:10 comes. This year we will use BOTH lanes and do a merge where the cones are at the start of the building. Please remember to use a "zipper" method and let each lane take a turn for cars to go in front.


Regards,

Dr. Melinda Stone

Parent and Visitor Identification (ID) Requirement

As always, one of KatyISD's top priorities is the safety, security and well-being of every student, staff member, parent and community member in all of our buildings. This is an additional campus safety and security measure that the district is implementing:


  • Parent and Visitor Identification (ID) Requirement: All parents and visitors must now present a valid, current, government-issued picture ID outside of the main entrance at all Katy ISD campuses prior to gaining admittance. Each campus is equipped with a controlled access system that includes a camera and an intercom that parents and visitors will need to utilize when presenting their ID for entrance. To gain further access beyond the campus front lobby, individuals will again be required to present their ID to the front desk receptionist in order to be officially logged into the visitor tracking system.

School Supplies - What do I do with all of these supplies?!

Teachers should have told your child what they will need to bring on the second day of school. In addition to what the teachers tell them to bring, please send bulk items such as paper towels, hand sanitizer, zip locks, etc. on Thursday and Friday of the 1st week of school.

Parents - Would you like to be on the Campus Advisory Team?

Our Campus Advisory Team (CAT) includes parents, teachers, district officials and community members. This team serves as an advisory board for the campus and helps to think through issues and new campus initiatives. We meet 3-4 times a year. At this time, we are looking for 2 parents who are willing to serve on this team. To select these parents, we will do lottery system for those that are interested. The two that are selected will be notified by email.


If you are interested in serving, please email Kristie Woodard at kristiewoodard@katyisd.org by Tuesday, August 31st. Thanks so much!
