A Message From Mrs. Salas:

Dear Runyan Families,

It was a wonderful first week with our students in the building. We are looking forward to our first full week of school.

Just as a reminder our doors open at 7:30 a.m. Our school announcements begin at 7:55 a.m. and our instruction begins promptly at 8:00 a.m. If your child arrives after 8:00 a.m., please park and sign in your child at the front door. Please do not leave your child unattended on the front porch.

Our car rider line begins accepting students into the building at 7:30 a.m. For safety purposes, please do not leave your child on the front porch before our arrival time. If you choose to walk your child to campus, please walk your child to the front doors at the main entrance. One of our staff members will be there to welcome your student into the building. If you are running late, staying in the car rider line is the most efficient and safe way for your child to arrive. For safety purposes, do not walk across the car rider line. This keeps traffic moving and prevents children from walking in between vehicles. Parents who are dropping their children in the car rider line are focused on their child exiting their vehicle and may not be aware of children crossing.

To ensure an efficient flow of traffic, please have your child ready to exit your vehicle. Students should have their needed items easily accessible. Please have your child ready to exit the passenger side of your vehicle. This is the safest and most efficient way for your child to exit. All parents should remain inside their vehicle.

Thank you for your patience as we work through our dismissal procedures. Each day will continue to get faster as our students practice. Please have your car rider sign readily available.

Don't forget to follow us on Facebook. We post updates, reminders, and campus happenings. @RunyanCISD
