Message from Principal DiPalma

Hello Explorer Parents,

We made it! We are in the last week of the school year. Thank you for your support this year and let's make these last few days memorable and fun.

Our campus is closed to lunch visitors this week. This is due to end of year awards and campus events that are happening that require extra safety measures and vigilance of our school building. Parents who are VIP volunteers and have signed up to help with PTA are able to be on campus on Tuesday for Splash Day.

Please remember to go ahead and complete registration for next year. Online registration for all NEW and RETURNING students is open. Register early to help us plan for classes and hiring of teachers.

Have a safe and fun summer!

All our students are required to wear their SmartTag while on campus. If they are a BUS rider, they must have their SmartTag ID to scan when entering the bus. This provides instant notifications to parents to monitor their students as they are on district Transportation.

We will be collecting Smart Tags from students who are NOT bus riders on Thursday, May 25. Students who are attending summer school will have their Smart Tag delivered to the summer school campus.

Below is the link to the Parent Portal for SmartTag:

Post Oak Community Garden

Our campus will be partnering with the City of Kyle to plan a community garden in the Post Oak neighborhood.
