Thank you to all of our bus riders for a great start to the school year. We are communicating with transportation about our buses that are consistently running late so that they can continue to work on adjusting routes.
Please continue to communicate any bus concerns with the magnet office and/or AISD Transportation: 512-414-0238
·Bus Passes: Parents, please provide a handwritten note giving permission to your student to ride a different bus than their assigned bus within 24 hours.
Late Activity Buses
Late buses are available and leave school at 5:30 p.m.
· Students should be given a pass for late buses from the teacher of the after school program they are attending.
· A large poster of the late activity bus schedule and routes can be found in the breezeway outside of room 108 near the gates on Leland Street and in the Magnet office.
· In order to better assist our students please have students know or write down their address, the nearest AISD School to their home, and a good phone number for a parent or guardian.
Voluntary Magnet Parent Directory
There’s still time if you would like to be included!
Please email your information to Ms. Quintanilla at firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than September 15th. There will also be a sign up sheet for the Parent Directory at Back to School Night at the Magnet Table.
Your information will only be shared with parents who are part of this directory. We are looking to publish this in late September.
Please include: student name, parent(s)/guardian(s) name, email, phone, and zip code.
We welcome you to contact us anytime to set up individual or team meetings concerning your student. Ms. Quintanilla can set up individual appointments with me or schedule a teacher team meeting.
Our teachers are teamed by grade level so that all core content teachers are available for parent meetings on Fridays. Our grade level teams are available during the following times for parent conferences:
· 6th grade: 8:25 a.m.-8:50 a.m.
· 7th grade: 1:55 p.m.-2:35 p.m.
· 8th grade: 9:55 a.m.-10:35 a.m.
Reminders to Parents
To enhance safety of students and staff, AISD policy requires all visitors to show a picture ID. A visitor’s pass will be given to all visitors in the main office not in the magnet office.
Daily attendance is a high priority at Fulmore

1. Report absence to the attendance clerk at 512-414-3439 before 10:00 a.m.

3. Within the next three days send a note with student explaining absence including the following:

***Notes must be submitted within three days for absences to be amended***
