Morning Drop-Off and Afternoon Pick-up
The safety of our students is of the utmost importance to all teachers and staff members at Meyer Elementary. Please read the drop-off and pick-up procedures listed below. In order to ensure our student’s safety, it is critical that we all work together to follow the guidelines listed below. When dropping off or picking up your child, please make sure that you are mindful of no parking areas and designated walker areas.
The morning and afternoon drop off/ pick-up area for car riders is located at the side of Meyer Elementary. All car rider traffic must go through the car rider line. You will be issued a Meyer Elementary car rider sign, at Meet the Teacher, to place in your window. Please ensure you have this sign daily for pickup. If someone other than the normal pickup person needs to pick up your child, please DO NOT give them your car rider tag. For student safety, they will need to come to the front office and verify they have permission to pick up the child.
Students MAY NOT be dropped off before 7:35am. Students MUST remain in the car until the doors open at 7:35am. If you need to drop your student off before 7:35am, Koala Kare is available in the morning.
During afternoon pickup, do not get out of your vehicle as you are waiting in the car rider line. This causes traffic to become congested in the line and it is not safe for students. Please remember scholars will be brought to the front office between 3:45 and 3:50. Parents, you will then be expected to come to the front office with your car rider tag or your I.D.
SISD buses and Licensed Day Care buses will load and unload students in the parking lot and the front of the building. Cars may not drop off or pick up students in this area.
Walkers-Parents will need to come to the side of the building, by the cafeteria, for walkers. Parents may wait for their children on the sidewalk and escort them home or they may travel with their older sibling. Parents will have to present walker tags with their child’s name on it for a scholar to be released. If you come to pick up your child without a tag, you will have to present your identification at the front office.
Parents of Pre-K and Kindergarten scholars must have a code to receive your child from the bus. This code ill be given to you by your child’s homeroom teacher. The bus drivers will not release your child without the proper number being given. If an older sibling will be taking the child from the bus, make sure they know the code.

Save the Date: Success Walk Fall 2023 – Sept. 9
Please join us for our Fall 2023 Success Walk. A Community Celebration Involving All Spring ISD Campuses and Departments.
This is a districtwide community event that will focus on connecting with parents and students to ensure student success in the new school year
This event will reconnect and reclaim scholars who:
have attendance concerns
have not returned to school
are lacking credits for graduation and eligible for Momentum Academy
need additional support for graduation
were listed as a dropout for 2022-23 school year.
Each campus will host their own Success Walk Team and will participate live via Zoom with the kickoff event host site that will be held at the Momentum High School Gym and include an opening address from our Superintendent.
Good Nutrition is Essential for Learning
Healthy food fuels better learning for students. For the 2023-24 school year, Spring ISD will offer free breakfast and free lunch to ALL students in every school, along with free supper to students involved in after-school programs at many of our campuses. Each campus will offer a la carte items for purchase at meal times. These items may be purchased with cash or the student’s meal account. This year, students will have the option to scan the barcode on their ZPass card or enter their PIN.
In addition, students who pack a lunch from home can utilize our “Pick 3” program, which allows them to come through the cafeteria line and grab three items for free: a hot or cold fruit, vegetable and a milk. With Pick 3, we hope to take away some of the burden of packing lunches and provide ready-to-eat sides for students to “bulk up” their lunch with healthy options.
Our trained chef works with our dietitians on developing kid-friendly and kid-tested menu items that our students actually enjoy and will eat.
Menus are available on the district website but also at www.SchoolCafe.com, which offers complete nutritional information and an easy way to add money to your child’s meal account and manage the account balance. Sign up using your child’s student identification number.
Have questions? Visit: www.springisd.org/nutrition or call 281-891-6445. Remember, download the Spring ISD mobile app, and you can receive account balance notifications on your phone.
Una buena nutrición es esencial para el aprendizaje
Los alimentos saludables fomentan un mejor aprendizaje para los estudiantes. Para el año escolar 2023-24, Spring ISD ofrecerá desayuno y almuerzo gratis a TODOS los estudiantes en cada escuela, junto con cena gratis a los estudiantes que participan en programas extracurriculares en muchas de nuestras escuelas. Cada escuela ofrecerá artículos a la carta para comprar a la hora de comer. Estos artículos se pueden comprar con efectivo o con la cuenta de comida del estudiante. Este año, los estudiantes tendrán la opción de escanear el código de barras en su tarjeta ZPass o ingresar su PIN.
Además, los estudiantes que empacan un almuerzo de casa pueden utilizar nuestro programa "Elige 3", que les permite pasar por la línea de la cafetería y tomar tres artículos gratis: una fruta, verdura fría o caliente y leche. Con "Elige 3", esperamos eliminar parte de la carga de empacar almuerzos y proporcionar guarniciones listas para comer para que los estudiantes "llenen de volumen" su almuerzo con opciones saludables.
Nuestro chef capacitado trabaja con nuestros dietistas en el desarrollo de elementos de menú probados y aptos para niños que nuestros estudiantes realmente disfrutan y comerán.
Los menús están disponibles en el sitio web del distrito, pero también en www.SchoolCafe.com, que ofrece información nutricional completa y una manera fácil de agregar dinero a la cuenta de comidas de su hijo y administrar el saldo de la cuenta. Regístrese con el número de identificación de estudiante de su hijo.
¿Tiene preguntas? Visite: www.springisd.org/nutrition o llame al 281-891-6445. Recuerde, descargue la aplicación móvil de Spring ISD y podrá recibir notificaciones de saldo de cuenta en su teléfono.
