Important Information for Parents that Drop Off Students

Please remember that the Student Parking Lot in the front of the building is for student parking only. This area does not allow for student drop offs. Parents entering this lot to drop off students poses a safety risk to our student drivers. Parents may drop off students in the front circle drive or on the bus ramp AFTER 7:10 AM.


It has also come to our attention that it is becoming a common practice for students to be dropped off at Timewise on Harlem and then walk across the street. This is a huge safety concern for our students as there is a large amount of traffic on Harlem before school and very minimal lighting on the road. Thank you for dropping your student on campus!

This Week in Advisory

All grade levels will be taking the FBISD Student Survey on Tuesday and watching/discussing the Harbor video "Adventure" this week!

Jostens Delivers Cap and Gown and Announcements 03/28 and 03/29!

ATTENTION SENIOR PARENTS!

Jostens will be on our campus on Thursday, 03/28 and Friday, 03/29 during all lunches for Graduation Announcements and Cap & Gown Delivery. Balances must be paid in full to receive items. Payment can be made at the time of delivery by debit/credit card or cash. Checks are NOT accepted.

Attention Seniors- Final YES hours are due to the YES table on Tuesday, April 2nd. No late hours will be accepted. Congratulations to those seniors attaining 100 hours!

Need a Verification Of Enrollment?

Students needing a Verification of Enrollment or VOE for driving permits or licenses will need to submit their request on the VOE clipboard located at the Registrar’s Office. Students may sign-up for their VOE before school, in between classes, during lunch, or after school. Once they sign-up for their VOE, it will be ready the following day after 7th period for pick up in the black box at the Registrar’s Office.

Please plan accordingly to ensure your VOE will be ready in time for any appointments you may have.

PTO/YES Program

The YES table is every Tuesday during all three lunches. Students can look for us in the Commons with the red tablecloth labeled Travis YES Program. If students need a print-out of their hours for National Honor Society or for any other reason, they should fill out the request form available at the table and turn in to one of the YES representatives. Students will be able to pick up the print-out the following Tuesday at the YES table, so please make a note of your deadlines and plan accordingly!

Check Your Student's Tiger Pride Point Total

Tiger Pride Points are the "currency" we use to reward students for good behavior and/or participation in events and initiatives on our campus. Students must have their student ID to receive points.
