A message from Mrs. Rodriguez

Dear parents/guardians,

January is School Board Appreciation month. We honor and celebrate all the hard work our Jarrell ISD school board does for our community and schools. Thank you to:

President, Crystal Phalen

Vice President, Jenny Arnold

Secretary, Tamara Dozier

Member, Bruce Epstein

Member, Troy Clawson

Member, Rebecca Kirby

I want to welcome our new JISD and Igo students! We had over 10 students enroll and attend last week. We anticipate more in the coming weeks. We look forward to building relationships with our new families.

This week we will honor students who go above and beyond in the characteristics of discipline and honesty for the Early Act First Knight Program. Each teacher will contact parents of the students selected for the award and communication details.

As we continue to settle into the new semester, I encourage you to set routines at home that will set your child up for success at school.

Does your child have a routine when they get home from school to rest and play?

Does your child have a consistent space at home for reading and homework practice?

Do you encourage healthy eating habits, especially for breakfast? All students at Igo have the opportunity to eat a free breakfast each morning.

Do you have a set time for your child to wake up, get ready, and leave the house to be on time for school at 7:30 AM? There are many parents in the drop off line at 7:30 or after which means your child is rushing in the building to make it to class and begin morning meeting. This does not create a smooth start to the day. The teacher and rest of the class are already settled and engaged in the morning meeting discussions.

I challenge you to leave 5 minutes earlier to avoid traffic and lines.

I want to emphasize reading at home for all students. It is important students have a choice in their leisure reading. Do you have a book you read together? You reading out loud to your child will have a great impact on their literacy. Please reach out to our librarian, Mrs. Jarrett, if you need books at home, or your child's teacher. They can provide just the right books for your child's reading level, even paper copies that stay at home.

Let's make it a great week at Igo!

Mrs. Rodriguez

Recurring Information

Front Office Procedures

Parents must contact the front office if they are changing their child's method of transportation for dismissal. You can call the main line at 512-746-4805 or email the receptionist at Lissette.Vargas@jarrellisd.org. The cut-off time to change your child's transportation method is 1:00 PM.

You must present yourself in the front office in order to pick your child up early from school. Please be prepared to show your ID to be scanned into the raptor system.

We ask that you not pick up their child after 2:30 PM as it is too close to dismissal time.
