Construction at Martin

Road Closure - Haskell and Comal

2018 – 2019 Martin Middle School Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Arrival/Drop off: 7:30 – 8:00am

Parents, we need your cooperation and patience in following these procedures to ensure that all students are safe. Beginning Tuesday, August 21, 2018, the City of Austin will begin construction that will greatly affect transportation to and from Martin Middle School. The construction is projected to last for about one month and will effect Haskell Street, Comal Street, and Nash Hernandez Senior Road. During this time, we will have modifications to the arrival and dismissal procedures. These changes will be in effect beginning on Monday, August 20, 2018, which is also the first day of school. To ensure the safety of all individuals, we ask that you adhere to the following procedures:


All students will report to the cafeteria upon arrival. If your student needs to eat breakfast, they may do so first in the cafeteria.


To alleviate the congestion and ensure safety, car riders may be dropped off and picked up on the Chalmers side of the school, which is located by the Large Gym. You may access Chalmers by turning South on Holly Street. This will be the best detour since Haskell will be dedicated solely for buses and no thru traffic. Please be patient as there may be lots of congestion due to the temporary changes.
