We have noticed a slight increase in the number of items being taken or coming up missing. Please discuss with your students the importance of respecting property that belongs to someone else. We also ask that if your student has a gym locker that they utilize it to place their valuable while they are away from them. We thank you for your continued support to make Fossil Hill the wonderful school we all love.

Snacks on Campus
Please help us in knowing what your student is bringing to school. We have seen a few students bring extra snacks, candies, chocolates .... to school in order to sell them to other students. This is not permitted. All fundraisers occurring on campus must be approved following KISD procedures. In addition, extra snacks or food items may not be brought and shared with other students due to food service regulations. NO snacks will be allowed during STAAR testing days. Students may carry a sack lunch that does not require heating and will not be permitted to share.
Thank you for helping us with this.
KISD Tax Rate "Swap & Drop"
What if your tax rate could go down, while at the same time bringing in an additional $19 million in operating revenue for Keller ISD? It's possible through what we're calling a Tax Rate "Swap & Drop." Check out the preview video today and visit KellerISD.net/SwapDrop for more details and future updates!
Special thanks to our generous PTA for assisting us through all the Saturday Academies in getting lunch for all the students attending. We also thank them for their yearlong support.
