What Shall I be When I Grow Up?

Bette Perot parents expanded our students' understanding of the working world as they shared their career fields with our kids on November 21st. A wide variety of job opportunities were represented. Students loved learning about a day in the life of the parents who presented. Thank you to all who spent the morning with us to share their working life with our kids.

Reminder of Keller ISD Bad Weather Policy

The winter season is upon us. Our district staff understands that our decision to open or close schools in bad weather has a significant effect on families. We also understand that our students are better served – both academically and socially – by being in school. But as always, our top priority is the safety of our students.


The superintendent will make the decision to open or close the schools in bad weather by 5:30 A.M. based on analysis of all relevant factors, such as:

· Information on road conditions from transportation staff and from the police

· Amount of snow and ice accumulated

· Whether precipitation is continuing

· Building conditions (such as whether we have electricity and heat)

· Parking lot conditions

· Temperature and wind chill

· Weather predictions

· Sidewalk conditions

· What other school districts are doing


Families will be notified of decisions through a variety of media resources. Tune to WBAP-820 AM or KRLD 1080 radio, WFAA8, NBC5, FOX4, KTVT11 or KTXA21 television stations or KSTV for up-to-date information on school closings. Keller ISD does not recommend that you call the school or district office unless it is an emergency. You can also sign up for e-mail notification service through the district’s website. Check our district Web site www.KellerISD.net for information. A red alert bar will appear across the top of the KellerISD.net home page should campuses be closed.

Afternoon Pick-up

Please do not leave your car unattended in the Drop Off or Pick Up lanes. Should you need to park and enter the building, you must park in a designated parking space. Parking is always available on either side of the loop as you enter. Once you enter or are past the curve, parking is restricted at all times closest to the building and from 7:30 – 8:00 am and 2:30 – 3:15 pm on the left hand side of the loop closest to the building.

Parents wishing to park and walk up to pick up children may park along General Worth Drive, Dalton, or in the bottom part of the front driveway.

All pedestrians are to use the crosswalks when crossing campus driveways.

Thank you for your assistance!
